A little background info:
Kyle is an ex-pro hockey player I met while he played in New York. I am an extremely family oriented hair stylist from Rockaway Beach, New York. We survived 8 months of long distance and not seeing one another by phone calls, cards, and email.
We picked September 15th because it was my grandparents’ wedding anniversary. They survived over 55 years together before sadly passing. I met Kyle two months on the day of my grandmother’s death.
He’s from Boston, I’m from New York yet our families are beyond close.
If I have any advice for brides it doesn’t rush. Don’t rush a date as soon as you get the ring. Prepare and enjoy being engaged and also split the tasks with your soon-to-be husband.
Don’t make the wedding a show, make it about the two of you. Who cares what everyone else thinks?!
And choose your groomsmen and bridesmaids wisely. They will be your support team!
There is a saying I love: “Have a marriage as beautiful as your wedding” that to me, is EVERYTHING.
5 things I love about my husband
- He honors me always. When I don’t stick up for myself, he does.
- He empowers me to try new things. From sports to foods to zip lining in the rainforest in Antigua
- He gives me confidence. From telling me how beautiful I am to how great of a mom I’ll be one day.
- He’s made me want more than just my career. I never was the girl to want a family or husband. I wanted to be a rocking stylish. Now I want to be Suzie Homemaker!
- He teaches me things and answers all of my questions, even the stupid ones. From what’s a line backer to interrupting movies because the plot is too confusing for me.
- He puts up with my singing. And I sing everything!
- He makes me feel safe. No matter where we go or what we are doing if his hand is in mine, I’m ok.
I asked my husband via email to get cracking on his list and this is what I got. Am I lucky or what?!
