There could not have been a better way to start my Wedding Season than with Michelle and Michael’s Pi Day Wedding at Land’s End in Patchogue, NY! They have something sweet about them that you don’t see every where you go or in every one you meet. They met when they were in 8th grade so they have known each other for quite some time. Michelle’s Mom said it best during her speech at their ceremony so here is her rendition:
During 8th grade, Michelle was hosting a party at our home for her friends. She decorated the basement, turned on the music, got out the snacks, & was all set.
“As her friends arrived, the doorbell would ring, I would open the door, and tell each friend to go downstairs.
The little party was in full swing.
Then the doorbell rang & I opened the door to a smiling young boy wearing glasses. I let him in & instructed him to go downstairs.
A few minutes later, Michelle came upstairs and said;
“There’s a boy downstairs and I don’t know who he is”.
I told her to go back downstairs & see if any of her friends knew him.
A few minutes went by, Michelle came upstairs again.
She said; “ No one knows who he is”.
Again, I said, “go talk to him and find out who he is”.
A few minutes later, Michelle & her girlfriend came upstairs,
Giggling like little 8th grade girls do, Michelle said;
“Mom. Really. We don’t know him”.
I proceeded downstairs to talk to him.
I said; “Hello, I’m Michelle’s Mom”.
He said; “ Oh, hello, I’m Michael”.
As it turned out, a mutual friend of theirs had invited Michael to the party, but didn’t come himself.
Little did Michelle & Michael know that this was the beginning of a life time together.
Now this just might be one of the cutest first meeting stories I’ve ever heard! And here is Michelle’s sweet words to sum them up even more perfectly!
“At the time, I did have blue hair. Mike and I were always dying our hair crazy colors. Mike had a Mohawk all through high school and into freshman year of college. It was blue, green, orange/red, and his personal favorite, checkerboard. He had/has many face and ear piercings, at least 10 not including his ears. He’s taken out most of them, but still holds on to his few favorite. I can’t remember half the colors my hair was. The thing is, people never expected us to be as nice as we were. People just assumed we were the trouble makers, but Mike was actually an AP student in high school and graduated number 10 in our class. Neither of us ever had a detention either. Mike and I always loved to show people that its not about what you look like on the outside. Family always told us we would look back and regret our hair colors, his piercings, our clothes; but when we look back we wouldn’t change a thing.”
These two are something special just as I said above. I feel very lucky to have met them and their wonderful families and friends! First off I don’t know why all groomsmen don’t wear Super Hero shirts under their tuxes! Secondly they were truly one seriously FUN group! I was smiling from ear to ear the entire time. A special shout out to West Sayville Country Florist for creating beautiful flower arrangements and to LI Sound Dj’s for keeping the music going and the guests on the dance floor every second of the night! And Audrey’s Fine Baked Goods for a beautiful and very yummy Cake! Here are just a few of my favorite’s to share from their Pi Day celebration:
