The one thing I remember the most clearly about our first look is being led out to meet the boy by our photographer, Kate. My eyes were closed and all I could feel and hear was the thumping in my chest, as if my heartbeat was amplified a million times, echoing in its cavity. And then we came back to back and I felt his hand in mine, and my heart stilled, quieting – and that’s just what he does, he makes my heart race and stand still at the same time.

And then we turned to look at each other and my face lit up like the sun. And that’s just the thing about love, isn’t it? He lights me up more than anything else ever could.
