How we met:
At Brewster’s Street through a friend.
I converted to Catholicism and he was my mentor for the RCIA class. It was an hour before the Easter vigil service, as well as my confirmation, and we were taking pictures at the Dunes and he dropped down on one knee!
Bride: All the candle holders and votives painted gold by my mother and I. Nothing was alike and everything was unique. Groom: I was a big fan of the food.
Bride: Walking out of the church after the service as man and wife. I felt like I could finally breathe! Groom: Seeing Brittany walk down the aisle.
Bride: Trying to get everything set up for the big day. I would get daily phone calls and texts from my mom. My go-to line when I didn’t want to work on wedding details was, “I gotta go now.” Groom: Talking to everyone.
If you could do one thing over: Bride: Consider seeing Jacob before the wedding. It was way more emotional that I ever could have expected. Groom: Make sure to eat a piece
Funniest/most embarrassing moment:
Bride: The flower girl ran out of rose petals and announced that she ran out, then tried to pick them up off the floor to throw again! It was beyond precious. Groom: While reciting vows, the priest referred to me as Brittany’s wife.
Advice for future brides or grooms:
Bride: don’t sweat the small details. Chances are, no one, not even yourself, will remember! Groom: Don’t let her stress out. If she does, give her margaritas.
What you look forward to the most:
Bride: Coming home to him every day. Going to bed and waking up next to him (and our dogs) every day. He leaves for work before I do and never fails to kiss me good bye and as soon as we get back from work. Groom: Starting a family together.
How to make your spouse happy:
Bride: He’s so simple to please. I’m blessed he’s so easy going. Simple trips to the grocery store together are fun for us. But try to make mall shopping trips fast! Groom: You shouldn’t have to try, it just happens if it’s right.
