There are some weddings when, as a watchful observer, we can look around the room and see that there is a clear consensus. At Erin and Owen’s wedding, that consensus was, it’s about time. You see, Erin and Owen met for the first time when they were just eight years old, and even from that very first day they had a special connection. Back then, it was a bond sparked by the discovery that they shared the very same birthday - same day, same year. As they got older, attended the same middle school and high school, they discovered they had much more in common and became close friends. But, even though they attended the prom together, they never dated back then.
After graduation, they went to separate colleges but stayed in touch. They and their group of friends would get together during breaks and over the summer, and although both Erin and Owen may have had an inkling that there could be something more between them, the timing was never quite right. Until it was. In the fall of 2009, they both ended up living and working in New York City, and connected in a new way. To hear his friends tell it, it was obvious that Owen had been crazy about Erin for years. And when they finally became a couple, everyone agreed that they just made sense together.
On their wedding day, there was laughter, tears, love and a definitive sense that every person in the room knew that Erin and Owen were met to be together. And, like in most things in life, it’s all about timing.
