Mike & Emily were married on October 11, 2014. You may have heard me say in the past that I have the best clients. I really do and Mike and Emily are no exception. They are such a sweet and beautiful couple. They were such a joy to work with and I enjoyed spending their day with them. They were married at St. Ann’s and their reception was at Colarusso’s LaPalazzo in Moosic, PA. I asked if Mike and Emily would help me tell their story.
In Her Words
Mike and I have been friends since high school and we remained friends for several years before we started dating in our last year of college. The transition into dating was such a natural one and we have been together ever since. I believe that our relationship is so strong because of our years of friendship prior to dating. We spent so much time together in the first year of dating while we were still in college, we were inseparable, which made moving away for medical school in Philadelphia that much harder. But Mike was such a huge support while I was in medical school and was always my solid rock to lean on. He came to visit whenever I had a free weekend and I knew we were both completely dedicated to making the long distance relationship work. We couldn’t be more relieved that those long distance years are behind us! We truly hate being apart. Now that I am in residency, he continues to provide endless encouragement, love, and support. What I love most about Mike is his kind heart, his ability to make me laugh every single day, his love for my family, and his willingness to try anything new. On our wedding day, as soon as I reached him at the altar, my nerves (mostly) disappeared. He immediately made me laugh and he always gives me such a sense of comfort. I felt so happy in that moment standing at the altar with him. He is my best friend, the love of my life, and the most wonderful husband.
In His Words
Emily and I have known each other for a long time. Our friendship has given us a unique relationship that spans from high school through the first year of our marriage. We have gone through a lot together, some were good, others were hard, but none of them were bad. I often think back on all the times we have spent together and I always find myself feeling the same way. Regardless of the memory I happen to recall, I am always thankful that it was with Emily. My brother, who was the best man in our wedding, asked me a question in preparation for his best man’s speech. He asked, “ Why are you marrying Emily?” My response to him was Emily and I love one another unconditionally. She challenges me to be a better man, not just for her, but also for myself. She is my rock and completes me in a way that no one else can.
