Our story began when we were both teenagers, a young romance that fizzled out before it really even started but managed to grow into a deep friendship. In our mid-twenties, fate led us back to one another, and we both knew that this time, it was different. This time it was real. And while our path has never been linear or conventional, we've learned that sometimes, the most precious things in life take time and patience to bloom. As we are dreaming our future together, we know that a big wedding just isn’t for us. We want to prioritize saving for the things that truly matter: starting a family, buying a home, and building a life together. Which is why we have decided to have an intimate elopement-style ceremony, paired with a few small gatherings to celebrate with family. Our wedding journey may not be what anyone expected, but it's uniquely ours, and we're looking forward to celebrating our love in a way that feels true to us. Although we won't be having a big wedding, we're excited to find unique and meaningful ways to celebrate with our loved ones and community. We're incredibly grateful for the love and support we've received from our family and friends, and we can't wait to share this new chapter of our lives with all of you. So, we invite you to join us on this journey, to share in our joy and our triumphs, and to support us as we build the life that we've always dreamed of.
