When you’re young you have a lot of dreams as to what you’re gonna be when you ‘grow up’. Not gonna lie to y’all, wedding videographer wasn’t one of mine (didn’t know it existed) but I sure am happy how it worked out ;) HOWEVER I did have a list of dream jobs, many of which were crushed due to logistical (mostly height/personality) reasons while others faded away. Two of my faves were:
Hip hop dancer. (child/tween/teen Erin)
Spent most of my classes lankily bobbing around in the back row, a good 3 seconds behind everyone else, wearing a costume that was far too small. Seems you need to be somewhat coordinated to dance and as I was growing so fast I could barely walk without falling, this didn’t seem like the right fit for me…
Gunner in the army. (tween/teen Erin)
My best friend and I met a super cute army man at career day in grade 9. Nuff said. This remained our job of choice for years. Practically speaking I’m afraid of EVERYTHING, have limited coordination, physical strength or endurance of any kind and was a total FLAKE in high school sooooo you’re welcome Canada - it didn’t work out.
So when we heard from Sade and Patrick ‘we’ were excited, but tween/teen Erin was HELLA EXCITED.
SADE IS A DANCER FOR THE LION KING AND PATRICK IS A MEDIC IN THE ARMY AND THEY ARE BEYOND AMAZING!!!!
These two impossibly talented, kind and hardworking people travel all. the. time. Like actually all the time. I asked where they lived and their answer didn’t really make sense to me. Sade basically lives on the road going from from show to show, and Patrick is always on the move. So really, sky was the limit as to where they could get married. So they chose the most beautiful place I’ve ever been - Iceland.
Every family member and friend that made the trip out to join them was one of the kindest most interesting people I’ve met. This said more to me about Sade and Patrick than any words ever could. I can’t tell you how much I loved this couple and how much I loved their day. Watch and fall in love yourself :)
