Hello Family & Friends!! We are so excited for this day. We have been waiting for a very long time for this (at least I have lol) How unexpected life has been. It was an amazing day on September 4th 2013 surrounded by those closest to us when Sean proposed marriage to me. I was the only one who didnt know!! Life was looking up up up!!! My career was booming and we had so much to look forward to. I had been saving like crazy just for our BIG day, and in three years managed to put away $11k!! (Yes before he even asked) Good thing we had it though. Two days after Sean made me the happiest girl in the world, the unthinkable happened, I lost my job. We were devastated, I was heartbroken. After the first month and what felt like 100 resumes sent out and only 5 interviews done and then hearing absolutely.....nothing. Well we couldnt make rent. So that Dream Wedding fund was taken out for us to just live. It kept a roof over our head for just about 6 months. (Not bad!!) But my "dream wedding" went right out the window. I was fortunate a friend hired me at very part time hours on their food truck (just enough to pay a couple bills), but nothing to save and nothing to give to help out with rent. We stuck it out and stood by eachother and I now have a real job at an amazing company with great people, but for a while it will be an uphill climb. We are slowly but surely catching up, and thanks to great friends and family members helping us out with their buisness' we are getting this wedding back on track (much more humble than I had planned, but none the less) We still have nothing to save or put towards a cake, invitations, caterer, wedding rings or of all things...my dress. We have just over 2 months to get this all ironed out. I am certain everyone is having a rough time financially right now, but if there is any way you could help us have a modest and beautiful day on October 11th 2014 please. We will be forever grateful. Putting all pride aside, we have tried to wait it out and see if we would be able to do this on our own, but alas we connot. Anything you are able to spare or have a "family" discount in the biz all is welcome.
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts,
Sean & Therese
