Justin and Kelly met 7 years ago, on Kelly’s very first day of college at Slippery Rock University, in her very first class. Justin came to class late and the only open seat left was next to Kelly so he had to sit by her. Justin was also unprepared and did not have the book for class, so the teacher made him share Kelly’s. You’d think the rest was history, but that’s not exactly how it went. Kelly was not very fond of Justin in the beginning. Over the course of the school year, the two started talking more and more, and Kelly finally warmed up to Justin. A few months later they started dating and have been inseparable ever since.
Brides favorite moments:
-Right before the ceremony I was sitting upstairs at the hotel with my bridesmaids just waiting for someone to come tell me it was time to go down for the ceremony. I have never felt feelings like I had sitting in that room. I was a little nervous but mostly SO excited to know in just a few minutes I would be marrying my best friend in the entire world.
-Our first dance- it was an Ed Sheeran song called Tenerife Sea. I had that song picked out for Justin and I to dance to even before we got engaged. During our engagement I even went to an Ed Sheeran concert and heard him sing it live, which was AMAZING. The song gives me goosebumps every time I hear it, and finally getting to dance to it after over a year of imaging what that first dance would be like was such a special moment.
Grooms favorite moments:
-Everything from start to finish was great. The wedding went off without a hitch and everything went very well. The best thing was being with Kelly for the best day of our lives. It is so hard to pinpoint a moment when everything was phenomenal.
