Two years ago today I was getting my hair and makeup done with my bridesmaids. We rented a huge house so everyone could get ready in one place, guys downstairs and girls upstairs. One of the many memorable moments that day was when Sean came upstairs to see me blindfolded. It was so exciting to see him walk into the house knowing that we weren’t going to see each other until our first look. He looked too cute, and happy to be with the guys golfing that morning. While getting ready we were listening to music and laughing and having fun. The song we had chosen for the last dance of our night came on. I was of course like “ahhhh this is our last song tonight”, being a girly girl. Little did I know that when I was getting into my wedding dress that the same song came on again. We all said this is a sign! It was similar to a sign I had when Sean and I were broken up and I reached out to him months later. One of the best decisions of my life!
Music has always played a big part in who we are, and this song coming on was just one more reminder of the special moments we’ve shared.
Our first look couldn’t have been anything more special. When I arrived at the Scituate Lighthouse Sean’s back was facing me. It was a moment that we have waited our whole lives for. I felt amazing and beautiful, and I couldn’t wait for him to see me and hug him when he was standing only ten feet away from me. We said I do with our toes in the sand at Humarock Beach. I’ve grown up going to this beach my whole life, it just felt right to say our vows in this spot that we both love.
Everything on our wedding day was amazing, and I cannot believe it has been 2 years already. Look where we are now. I thought we were always strong but didn’t realize how much stronger we can get. Sean, I will always continue to communicate and make sure to put you first and make time for us. Sometimes it’s a struggle for me while having a photography business, but it is always something I will work on. Thank you for laughing with me and my quirky jokes. I will try not to answer your questions with another question! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us. We are just getting started with our life together. I want to never take a second of our life granted! Here’s to a thousand more years together. I love you!
