Gosh…. This is hard to write and I am excited to write it at the same time. I met Myles in Santiago, Chile when I was a cheerleader at DBU and he was the start on the basketball team. His humor, acceptance, and non-judgmental disposition was something I was looking for in a friend as a 19-year-old figuring life out on my own. Myles is a true friend and I am glad to call him a friend for life. Throughout being friends with Myles, I got to meet Samone, the love of his life. These two have been through SO much together as high school sweethearts and beyond and have persevered through it all. Samone is hilarious and level-headed, mature, sociable, solid, confident and loving. Getting to know her after meeting Myles was one of the biggest blessings of my life. I have found a friend in her as well that I will never take for granted.
COVID again (who else is tired of hearing about that?!) affected their original day and after I think 5 failed attempts at planning something new due to COVID regulations, they planned a microwedding at The Place At Tyler. There were 4 people in attendance, including Emily and me capturing all the details of their day and it was intimate, sweet and long-awaited. They hand-picked all the details of their day and centered it around the love they have for each other. It was one of my favorite days to be a part of. These two love each other SO much! They shared their own vows to each other during their ceremony officiated by Myles’ mentor, friend, and former DBU basketball coach, Brandon Curran. I always get an up-close and personal view of wedding days but this one was the most up-close I have gotten with a couple and it was even more special because of our relationships together. It was so much more personal, because these are my friends! I KNOW for a fact that even though there were so many changes in their day, it was perfectly perfect for them, and at the end of the day… that’s really all that matters.
