As I drove away from Sarah and Jeremy’s wedding, I came to the conclusion that life is complicated, but love is simple. Sarah and Jeremy have had a rough year. With so many things going on it was hard to envision a wedding happening. When they were first trying to figure out their new plans I couldn’t help but reflect back on their engagement session, getting to know them and seeing them together. Here is the thing about Sarah and Jeremy, they are some of the best people you will ever meet. They seriously have it all. They are smart, kind, interesting, hilarious, down to earth, and beautiful. They both do geriatric and hospice medicine which you have to be an incredible soul to do. Then together, you see them and they are dynamite. They carry the weight of the world on their shoulders at work and when you hang out with them you would think they have never seen a bad day in their lives. Their positivity is invigorating and contagious. So to see them get married made me so so very happy. Life has been complicated for them. Things to decide and figure out, heartbreaks, disappointments, and stress but their love has been simple. They knew the entire time that their love endured. They were going to choose each other no matter what happens. That simple choice keeps them going and will continue to do so for the rest of their lives together.
I will leave you with a poem I feel fits these two so well.
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way that this: where I doesn’t not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.”-Pablo Neruda.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Cohen! Your love has persevered!
A big thanks to all their friends who made the day possible and awesome. And also to Blanc and High Point Creamery.
