“They say that every great love has a story, and mine began the day I met Stephanie 5 years ago. When my forever began,” he began. “In the 42 years of my life I’ve made many decisions and at times have felt lost. But every decision, whether right or wrong, has lead me down a unique path that has lead me to her, my wife.”

He continued: “On September 9th, 2019, I married my best friend. She’s the person I plan vacations with just to realise that we never really wanted to leave home in the first place, the one person who calls out my s*** and brings me back to earth. A person who isn’t afraid to be honest with me and makes me want to be honest with her.”

“She’s the one who loves me more than I’ve ever been loved before and never afraid to show it or feel it. She’s the one who picked me up after my father passed, let me cry and at the same time made me strong. She became my reason “why”.. why I work, why I smile, why I laugh and why I can finally sleep. The reason why I’m happy to go home after a long day knowing she’s on the other side of that door. Every doubt, every question disappears when I look into her eyes. She is my home. She is my wife,” he added.

“A couple of days ago my husband said something to me; that our relationship isn’t contingent on anything else but our friendship and being there for one another,” she first said.

“One month ago I officially married my best friend. I never dreamed of a big wedding, the only thing that I knew I wanted was for my Lola to be there and for her to walk me down the aisle. But sometimes things happen that are out of our control,” she continued.

“Our first ceremony happened at the beginning of the year, holding my lola’s hand in the hospital, something we chose not to share. Life doesn’t always happen the way you imagined it. Sometimes things don’t go to plan and you end up planning a courthouse wedding in a week… and you’re painting your shoes white till 3 AM because you couldn’t find anything else. Life isn’t perfect and you can’t control every aspect of it. But you can control who you spend the rest of your life with and I couldn’t be more blessed to have found my husband, my best friend, who I will continue to choose every day for the rest of my life.”
