A little over a year ago on August 6th, Matt and I were invited to our friend, Kari’s birthday party by her boyfriend, Michael. Everyone was instructed to wear white, which most people did. Michael had asked for some volunteers for a special birthday surprise for Kari and I volunteered. I had an idea what the special surprise was and I was right, he proposed to her while the volunteers sent champagne into the air.
At least most of them did, the one I had somehow got stuck. It was soon put to good use as the happy couple drank from it after the proposal was accepted.
Due to her being in white and Michael being in black and white, they already resembled the bride and groom they will be this weekend.
Though Matt and I were invited to the outdoor wedding, we had to reluctantly decline due to some logistics with the wedding in particular the distance and heat with me being six months pregnant.
We had a great time meeting new friends and helping them celebrate her birthday and their engagement. Though we cannot be there for them, we celebrate their marriage in spirit and wish them a lifetime of happiness.
