I can't pinpoint what it is about high school sweethearts that I love the most. I can tell you its a different kind of love to be around. It's goofy, playful, and full of depth. Maybe it's because on average they're together longer than most couples due to simply being far too young to marry. Maybe it's because they faced the world together, through the awkward stages, rejections and achievements that high school + adulthood brings. Whatever it is, it's one of my favourite things. An all encompassing love, the one that never flees, but is bound closer with each battle or milestone. I've watched these two fall in love at least half a dozen times, in a new way, in a new light and I hope they never lose that spark.
My heart is completely full and I owe it to the 22 people I got to meet this past week. It's no wonder Tyler & Samantha are in love like this, they have the greatest friends + family building them up.
Thank you to every single one of you for including me in the celebration. This will surely be a trip I won't ever forget.
