Saturday was 12 years in the making. After years of being “just friends”, it took a leap of faith and Vince being deployed in Afghanistan to make their relationship shine bright. Every part of the wedding was planned and made personal. Handwritten notes shared between the two of them were read during the ceremony, and even ending the night driving to a family member that couldn’t make it to the wedding.
But I think my favorite part of the day was watching Vince + Natalia goof off so lovingly with each other. When I can be 100% myself the entire wedding day because the couple reminds me so much of myself (and Jay) it fills me with so much joy. Joy that might involve running to catch the last 30 seconds of sunset, or having the bride sneak us a taste of their signature drink. Also, sarcasm is my love language.
Guys. Thank. You. <3 <3 <3
