Without sounding like a stalker, I knew Alec before he knew me. I was working at the bar one night and him and a group of friends had come in for a few drinks. I instantly spotted him and ask Jennessa (one of my bridesmaids) "who's that guy?!". She went on to tell me it was Alec and that he was a nice guy but he unfortunately had a girlfriend. Disappointed I finish the shift, served him and his friends their drinks and forgot about the tall, handsome stranger. Fast forward to about a year later, I was out on a friend's boat and we stopped to pick up someone and low and behold, a SINGLE Alec was in tow. We made our way to the Broken Oar and spent the night drinking Irish car bombs, talking, cracking jokes and him trying to explain how he "held water". We went our seperate ways at the end of the night and I figured that was it. Thankfully that was not it and Alec had followed up with Jennessa the next day to see if I was dating anyone, after getting the green light he slid into the DMs haha and the rest was history! I think we both knew pretty early on that this was it (Alec decided to wait a few years juuuust to be sure) but we have been living life together pretty amazingly ever since! We are best friends, partners, new homeowners, Waylyn parents and now get to add husband and wife to the list and we couldn't be more ready!
