I've held off on blogging this post for a few days because I just wasn't sure what to say about Nick and Vanessa. There are lots of cheesey things I could throw out there about "love at first sight" and meeting Mr. Right, Prince Charming, etc. I could make comments about how quickly life is moving for them and how I'm sure they're loving every second of it. But I won't. I'll simply say, "Sometimes, you just know." I introduced Nick to my cousin Vanessa on my birthday of May this year. I had planned a night out for friends in Temecula and decided I'd set up a pseudo blind date for these two. I thought they'd have some common interests and hit it off; sure enough, they did just that. Several weeks later I was shopping for engagement rings with Nick and having girl talk with Vanessa. Last Friday they became man and wife. Sometimes, you just know.
They're the most obviously in-love couple I know. They make each other smile, they make each other laugh and they give one another a reason to dream. Vanessa has been deserving of a man like Nick for quite some time, and Nick has been waiting for a girl like Vanessa his entire life. That could just be my opinion, but I'm a romantic. And sometimes, you just know.
To the Mr. and Mrs., I wish you a life of never ending happiness, constant laughter and a relationship so full of passion that you never have to second guess a single breath or a single moment of your existence.
Here are a few photos from their intimate ceremony. I'll have the pleasure of dancing night away with Nick and Vanessa at their larger celebration next year. Thank you for making me a part of your special day(s) :)
