Six years ago today, my husband and I were paired to walk down the aisle together as bridesmaid and groomsman in our friends, Sarah and Chad’s wedding. This wedding is where I met my husband.
The bride, Sarah and I were first introduced in college, as we were randomly selected to be college dorm roommates. It was the best thing I have ever been randomly selected for. Sarah had been trying to introduce me to Ryan for years prior to her wedding day. When the time was right, she tried again.
“Stephanie will be paired with Ryan for the ceremony”, instructed the wedding planner. As I stood in line, rehearsing my position for the Big Day, I leaned in and whispered to the bridesmaid next to me, “Which one is Ryan?”. She leaned back to me and pointed straight ahead and said, “He’s that one. Lucky.”
Thanks to Sarah for her persistence and match-making skills. Happy wedding anniversary to you and Chad, and congratulations on another baby on the way.
