True Story: "I Survived a Near-Death Experience Before My Wedding"
Days before the wedding can be overwhelming stressful. However, for this one bride, her journey was anything but the ordinary catering catastrophe. Tara and her newlywed husband Brian shared with Bridal Guide their story and wedding of a lifetime.
Life comes and goes in a flash; there are some memories that we want to hold on to forever and others that we can only hope to forget. But it's the troubles and turbulence we encounter during our journey that make us grasp on to the things that we hold dearest to us.
My now-husband Brian and I lived only 15 minutes away from one another for years. We probably bumped into each other a few times without even knowing it. We were meant to be but had no clue the other even existed.
We met at a gym, and like most good things, it took time for our relationship to blossom. A week turned into a year, where we were already bickering over who was doing the dishes next. One clean dish led to another, and we found our landing spot in South Carolina. On the Fourth of July, Brian proposed, and in our giddy state, we never expected that we would face the biggest test of our lives just three months later.
