It all started at our house on the hill. I was young then and I love starring at the window and looked on the cars that passed by our street. And one sunny morning, I was doing my usual sightseeing when a red car passed by and I saw a cute boy sitting at the backseat. He was also looking outside the car’s window and had happened to gaze upon me for the moment. We were later informed that they were going to be our new neighbors and little did I know that this simple would turn into a romantic bond that will last for a lifetime.
I met Greg when I was 10. He was a lanky 13 year old boy who always gets my attention. I don’t know what makes him tick. Was it the way he dressed? Was it the shiny retainers he used to wear? Or was it his swagger? We eventually became friends and soon after he revealed to me that he also had a crush on me. The feeling was also mutual and to make the long story short, we ended up being boyfriend-girlfriend all throughout high school and college. He was my first and only love.
It didn’t take long for him to ask my hand and get married. I of course, had given him my sweet yes and soon after, the planning took place. We opted to have a ceremony at woods. Being a nature-lover myself, I always wanted to do something important in life and be close to nature at the same time. And so we set our location at a nearby forest and planned for the other details thereafter. He let me do my thing and I’ve decided to have an eco-friendly wedding. I made sure all the details have a eco-friendly appeal from the wedding invitations, decorations, food, and even my wedding gown. My bridal gown in particular, was made of durable and environment-friendly materials. I got it from a premier bridal store online.
The big day arrives and everybody was anticipating a romantic moment. I was very nervous and excited at the same time and all I can think of was being thankful that finally I’m about to marry my one true love. The ceremony went well and all the guests were in a happy mood. We took our pictures at the forest and everybody was pleased for the green sceneries all around. It even gets better at the reception because that was the time when all the guests have loosen up and had a really great time. Everything seemed perfect that day and I’m forever blessed to be wed to the only man of my life.
It’s very rare to end up with your first love. I just happened to be fortunate. Nowadays, Greg and I are happily married for 2 years now and even if sometimes things get rough I’m still thankful for having him in my life. Now we are starting to build our own family and move back to the house on the hill where it all started.
