Zoe and Aaron met pretty much right away when they started college, first striking up a conversation during a hike at freshman orientation at Johns Hopkins. They had many things in common, not the least of which was a highly developed entrepreneurial spirit. They started dating not long after that first hike and a short time later they started their first business together. Others would follow, including their current incredibly successful business (check it out, it's pretty awesome & perfect for holiday gifts).
Zoe and Aaron have spent over a decade working together. Rob and I know a little something about running a business with the person you are in a relationship with and the fact that Zoe and Aaron are going as strong as they are is a testament to their strength as a couple. Their combined skills have allowed them to work together and travel the world, creating a life for themselves that most people can only dream of living. And, most of all, they have fun doing it. They clearly love each other's company, and you can imagine their days are as much filled with belly laughs as they are with business plans. Zoe and Aaron just plain make each other happy and, in turn, they improve the lives of the people around them.
These are two people that anyone would be lucky to call a friend. They are quirky and unconventional, super smart and so much fun to be around. So it's no surprise that their wedding was a true celebration. All the people in attendance were thrilled to see this long-time couple become husband and wife and delighted to have an excuse to spend time with them. Throughout the day, there were stories told of Zoe and Aaron through the years - sweet stories, funny stories - all sharing the same common theme: that the person telling the story truly cherished having this incredible couple as a part of their life.
Zoe and Aaron have already lived a pretty spectacular life together, from hiking in Maryland to living in China and settling down in New York City. They have been each other's constant in the fast-paced world in which they have immersed themselves. There's no doubt that these two will continue to do amazing things together and that they will always be surrounded by laughter and love.
Erin and Owen are one of those couples are completely in sync with one another. They fit together in a way that leaves no question as to whether or not they were meant to be together. Maybe it's because they happen to share the same birthday. Maybe it's because they have a similar sense of humor and enjoy some of the same simple pleasures of life - exploring new neighborhoods in NYC, enjoying a glass of wine at a cozy restaurant on a chilly Fall night, savoring a late summer evening at the Jersey shore. Either way, it's easy to see that in one another they have found true unconditional love. They share the kind of love that makes you feel like you can do anything, be anything, because no matter what you will have the unflinching support of the one person that means the most to you in the entire world. And that's pretty special. It's hard to describe what that kind of love looks like, but if you wanted to see it with your own eyes, you would only have to observe Erin and Owen for a few minutes. You would see it in the way he instinctively reaches for her hand when they sit down next to one another and holds it ever so gently, in the way she looks at him when he tells a story, waiting for him to make her laugh.
Owen knew when he met Erin that she was incredibly special and it didn't take him very long after they became a couple to know that he wanted to be with her forever. Even though he knew she felt the same, he still had a mix of nervous excitement when he led Erin down to the Promenade in Brooklyn Heights. There, with the Brooklyn Bridge standing tall to one side and the skyline of Manhattan reflecting onto the water behind them, he asked he to be his wife. Of course she said yes. Yes to a lifetime of exploring neighborhoods and sipping wine in cozy restaurants. Yes to long walks on the sandy beaches of the Jersey shore. Yes to shared birthday parties and the absolute joy of building a life together with a man she adores.
Jessica and Josh are accustomed to making every minute count. The nature of Josh's job in the Navy means that they have to spend time apart, often separated by thousands of miles, having to adapt to living on opposing time zones and different sea levels. So they know what it is to miss one another. They know how much they can long to hear one another's voice, making even the shortest of conversations precious. They know how wonderful a long embrace can feel after months apart. Their love has been made stronger through the distance, the ache they feel when they are apart proving that they were meant to find each other. It has given them a deeper perspective about just how fleeting each moment can be and how important it is to live in the moment, especially in those moments when they are together.
So on their wedding day, when they would be in the same place at the same time with not only one another but also the friends and family they currently live thousands of miles away from, they were going to make absolutely certain that every single second counted. They stared into each other's eyes and listened to one another's voice more closely than ever before as they exchanged their vows. They shared quiet moments, holding each other close, savoring the embrace and the feel of the sun against their faces on a day they would never forget. They danced and laughed with their friends and family, thanking them for making this day all the more special with their presence.
When the night came to an end, Jessica and Josh walked out of their party hand in hand through a sea of light. As the sparklers popped and hissed around them, they grinned from ear to ear, confident that they had just experienced some of the very best hours of their lives. And as the car drove away, leaving their cheering friends and family in the distance, Jessica and Josh embarked on the next chapter of their lives together, knowing that any time they spend apart will just make the time they spend together that much sweeter. After all, this is just the start of a lifetime together.
The sun streamed through the windows, illuminating Elena's face as she was laced into her gown. She took a deep breath, trying to take it all in. Immediately before her eyes was an expansive view of Central Park, with a bright blue sky above and people bustling to and fro. But up where she was, nearly 40 stories above it all, it was quiet. She took a few minutes to think, about everything that had led her to this moment and all of the endless possibilities ahead for her with Erick by her side. She had waited to find a man like him, never losing hope that he did in fact exist. She knew almost instantly after she met him that he was perfect for her and, even so, she never ceases to be amazed by just how well they fit together. As she took the steps out of the hotel and headed to the church to meet Erick, she could barely contain her joy.
Erick met her at the front of the church with a smile on his face and a tear in his eye. From the minute he hugged her father and took Elena's hand, he didn't let it go. He held it gently, caressing it with his thumb throughout the entire ceremony, offering her the constant reminder that, to him, she is the single most precious thing in the world. As they walked through Central Park together after the ceremony, she leaned into him, knowing that in his arms she has found her happy place. He glanced over at her throughout the day with the look of a man swelling with pride, because he knew that this was the greatest day of his life - and each day that follows will be made that much better now that Elena was his wife.
I like to think that you can tell the true success of a marriage by the level of joy displayed by those closest to the couple - especially their respective fathers. If the fathers are happy, the couple will have a long, successful marriage. That evening, Elena and Erick's fathers took to the dance floor over and over again, quite literally dancing with joy that their children had found one another. It was beautiful to watch, knowing that the joy Erick and Elena have found with one another has spread to their families. Their wedding day was the first of many celebrations that would bring their two families together. There is a big, bright future ahead for Erick and Elena.
There was a heaviness in the air on the morning of Stephanie and Andrew's wedding day. A thick fog rolled in and hung on to the side of the mountain while a sticky mist fell intermittently. Some brides may have been discouraged by the rain. Not Stephanie. That morning, she was smiling. As far as she was concerned, there was no reason not to be smiling. That was the day she was marrying Andrew and, rain or shine, it was a perfect day. Because the fact that they had found each other; the fact that two science-teaching, nature-loving, self-proclaimed nerds had found one another - that was pretty incredible. By the end of the day, they would be husband and wife. That was all that mattered.
When she saw Andrew for the first time that morning, as they met on a dock with water surrounding them and the mountain standing tall behind them, the fog rolled out. It dissipated rapidly as the sun broke through the clouds for a few brief moment. When Andrew turned around and saw Stephanie in her gown, he had no words. He smiled and pulled her in close. Stephanie could barely contain all the feelings that rushed over her as tears of joy rolled down her checks. Andrew wiped them away and held her tighter. He understood. He always understands. In his own way, he was feeling very much the same way in that moment. He knew just how incredible it was that he had met Stephanie at the exact right moment in his life; when, after seeing his sister marry the love of her life, he decided it was time for him to find that happiness for himself. It didn't take him very long to see that is exactly what he would have with Stephanie.
So when Stephanie and Andrew exchanged vows that day, it was the fulfillment of a promise they had seen in one another from nearly the minute they met. The ceremony was unique, sweet and romantic (very much like the two of them) and by the time it was over there was barely a dry eye in the room. And in spite of the fact that the fog rolled back in shortly afterwards and that a heavy rain replaced the sticky mist from earlier in the day, any heaviness that had been in the air had been pushed away by the levity of love that filled the room during Stephanie and Andrew's reception. Now, the air was filled with the love of all the family and friends that had gathered together to celebrate a couple so clearly meant to be with one another. But, most of all, it was full with the love between Stephanie and Andrew. A love so powerful that it could even make the sun break through the clouds.
