Emily & Phil
May 26, 2019
“It was a modern love story…we met on Tinder! A friend actually ‘swiped right’ on Phil for me because he knew I would think Phil was handsome. That friend actually replied to Phil’s first message to me and I took it from there. After a short time chatting on the app, Phil asked me to dinner and the rest is history!
“On the Friday of my birthday weekend, Phil took me to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. After dinner, we came home and he asked if I wanted my birthday present. Of course, I did! He took me outside, flipped a switch on our back deck, and hundreds of beautiful twinkly lights lit up our backyard. I’d wanted lights like this forever, so I thought it was such an incredibly thoughtful gift! Little did I know that wasn’t the gift at all. As I hugged him and said thank you, I could feel his heart beating quickly. Before I had time to process why that might be the case, he took a deep breath, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. I couldn’t stop shaking from excitement as I said yes!
“I wish I could relive our wedding day over and over again. It all went by so quickly in a blissful blur. Phil’s aunt married us in front of our dearest friends and family before we all danced the night away! There was so much joy, laughter, happy tears, and love throughout the wedding day. I’ll never forget that feeling!
“I have Celiac Disease and it was important to me that I be able to fully eat and enjoy myself at our wedding. Printworks made every menu item totally gluten free and safe for me to eat. We had a beautiful cake brought in from Delicious Bakery for our guests and a separate two-tier gluten free cake for Phil and me to enjoy from Wallflour Bakery. It was perfect!” ~ Emily
