Huntington, New York: Alison & Danny's Wedding
The water was relatively still, boats spotting the bay in the distance as Danny stood, waiting for Alison. It was the first time he was going to see her in her wedding dress and, even before he could hear her footsteps approaching, he could feel the emotions start to build up in his chest. This day was the day he had been waiting for since the moment he knew he was going to ask Alison to be his wife.
As she walked to him, the wind picked up, her veil dancing in the breeze as she went. She tapped him on the shoulder and when he turned around he couldn’t hold in the happy tears any more. Neither could she. After months of planning, here they were, one step closer. Closer to exchange vows in front of the family and friends who have cheered them on throughout their relationship. Closer to fulfilling the dreams and promises they had made to one another about the life they would build together as husband and wife.
By the time the ceremony arrived, they had less happy tears and more big smiles. It wasn’t just their smiles - it was the grins on the faces of their parents, their siblings, their friends, who knew, without a doubt, that in one another Alison and Danny had each found a person who would truly love them without question. And at the end of the night, as they walked out surrounded by the light of sparklers, they held each other tight, knowing that this was just the beginning of the realization of their dreams coming true.
