TELL US YOUR STORY: “I was having a girls night out and he was having a boys night out. Neither of us thought that soon after that we’d be living together and then planning our forever. We met at a nightclub and my girlfriends and I were about to leave when we decided we wanted a bit more time on the dance floor… and that is when we met. We started dancing and exchanged numbers. He actually put the wrong number in his phone but I found him later and told him to text me. From that day on we spent every moment we could either texting or talking on the phone at all hours of the night! After a month of dating the pandemic hit and shut down the world. We had to make the decision if we were going to go forward or call it quits. I had a conversation with my son and we decided to try and move in together. So many people were skeptical of our decision but 2 and a bit years later we are now happily married and have gone through so many things together. It feels like we have been together for 10 years not 2!!
The most amazing part of this journey is that my son now has a father who he loves and looks up to, a great father figure he can call dad. Who would have thought a night out would end with this!” – L

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “We were originally supposed to get married in Mexico and had everything planned. We ordered décor and had 45 people already booked to come with us. While in full lockdown, we made the decision to cancel Mexico and do it here. We (I) planned a wedding in 3 months!” – L

BEST MEMORY: “Everything! How absolutely perfect everything turned out and just how much fun everyone had that day; from the wedding party to all of the wedding guests!” – L 

ADVICE: “Breath! Enjoy the moment and just know that you can plan every single detail of your day and things will still go wrong (like having the wrong timing for walking down the aisle) but no one will know and everything will still be perfect!” – L
