One of my greatest joys is connecting with clients so much that I’m constantly laughing around them. Pauli and Chris are such a couple! We met on a hot and steamy Chicago afternoon, ducked under an overpass while dodging a torrential thunderstorm, danced around fresh puddles of rainwater, and they didn’t stop smiling!
Their love story is so unique and romantic that it resonated with me about true love and its definition. They are each other’s first loves, and the thought of marrying your first love made me a little misty eyed while editing their photographs, but I’m a sucker for romance!
I asked Pauli to please write a few words about their love story:
“How many firsts have we had in our lives? Plenty. However, how many people can say that they are marrying their first? Not many. In a few a months, I will be marrying my one true love, my very first boyfriend.
This is not only special because of this, but also because in my mother’s side of the family, the women married their first boyfriends. The story lives on through me because evidently, my fate was just the same. Fate brought us together and looking at him, I know I did something good in my life.
Chris and I would always say, we are each other’s good karma. For all the good things we have done, our reward was to spend the rest of our lives with that person who we know have touched us in ways that we can’t fathom. With us, there is no need to understand. The best things are those that we cannot explain and our love is one of them. Ask us how much we love each other? Chris would always tell me, “I love you more than life itself”and I would always say, “My love for you is enough for the both of us”. To many more firsts…………….”
Thank you both, so much, and I am looking forward to your wedding! Please enjoy your blog post!
