To me, it was truly an honor to be a part of this special day. August 7th, 2015 would have been just another day in my life, another X on the calendar, another 8 hours in the office. But something truly special happened on this day. Two of my forever friends got married.
It’d been a long time coming, their wedding. I’ve known them each for about 14 years and they’ve been together for close to 9 of them. Their names were synonymous in conversation. When you got one, you got the other, but not in an annoying-too dependent kind of way, it’s just the way it was and always should be. They are perfect for each other.
J is beautiful, kind, caring, and one of those girls who could make a burlap sack look stylish. E is strong, intelligent, hard-working, and never takes life too seriously. Together they were easy going, easy to get along with, and easy to love.
Love. You could seriously feel the love in the room when they said their “I Do’s”. It emanated from the beautiful couple, their family, and all of us friends who were lucky enough to have witnessed their love story unfold. It was romantic, it was emotional, and it was enduring. It was also tear-jerking. No one in the room could deny that they are meant to be together. Put on this earth to love and support one another. A truly perfect match.
I can only hope that one day, my wedding inspires the same emotions as this special day did.
