Magical Moments


My husband and I were high school sweethearts in our senior year. In the 6 years that we have been out of school, we have been so busy building our careers and our home that we have hardly had the opportunity to meet up and catch up with old school friends. Seeing all their faces among the crowd at our wedding created a feeling of nostalgia for my husband and I; it was like we were high school sweethearts all over again. Naturally, planning an event as detailed and stressful as a wedding can sometimes cause a rift between spouses. For us, seeing how everything pieced together so perfectly in the end and being surrounded by all the people we love and adore most, was a recreation of our love, and it reminded us exactly when, how and why we fell in love in the first place. It also served as a reminder of all the things that will always be worth fighting for, no matter the stupid, trivial arguments. That, with the combination of hilarious big-brother jokes during the ceremony; the eldest who gave me away placed my hand gently onto my husbands and whispered, "Don't bring her back." Jokes aside though, nothing felt better than saying "I do" to my best friend and biggest fan. As an interracial couple, it was always difficult for our families to accept the cultural differences between us. Although it was never a factor for us, as I am convinced that both my husband and myself are colour blind, it was always hard trying to get our two completely different families to come together as one. On our wedding day, everyone came together so beautifully. Watching them all dance, laugh and eat together made us realize that despite their various differences, they are all united in their love for us. Our two families are now one family and nothing could make us happier. We are forever grateful to all of them and can tell that this is going to be the start of a future filled with love, laughter, happiness and endless support. We are truly blessed.
