Everyone stood. Lauren and her parents started making their way down the aisle and I couldn’t help myself but take a quick peak at Ben waiting for his bride. My heart melted. Not only did I see love and joy in his eyes but I saw a flicker of something else… I saw a look that screamed “finally!”
They finally made it to their wedding. Lauren finally put on her white dress and they finally started this next chapter of their lives together. This is what they have been planning for, wishing for and looking forward to and now, these high school sweethearts are finally husband and wife and nothing could be sweeter.
As Ben stomped on the glass, I whispered to myself “finally!”
It was truly beautiful.
It may have been the hottest day of the year this far at Fresh Meadow Country Club but it didn’t matter. All that mattered was they were able to spend the happiest day of their life together with their closest family and friends. And let me just say, did they celebrate! Once Greg and Josh got the music going, the dancing was explosive, fun and honestly, adorable.
Watching Lauren’s brothers and Ben swing her around the dance floor left me grinning all night long. Seeing Ben’s sisters dance their heart outs made me want to dance my heart out too (I definitely indulged in this if I am being totally honest). And hearing all of Lauren and Ben’s friends and family sing “Piano Man” as they huddled around our bride and groom at the end of the night brought tears to my eyes in the happiest way.
Lauren & Ben, I hope you never stop celebrating. Celebrating your love for one another. Celebrating the family you will have together and celebrate all of the little moments in between. Cheers to you! I couldn’t be happier for you!
