Dominick and Brittany met about 6 years ago as high school students within the same friend group.
He was a sarcastic, but nice guy who rocked a mullet, and she was the shy people-pleaser type.
Both admit things felt different with each other and would even call it love at first sight. However, their relationship would wind up waiting along opposing sides of a breakup between their mutual friends.
Until one day she borrowed his jacket and the boundaries that separated them disappeared.
After a couple of months of Dominick driving Brittany to school every day, his flirtations hinted that a relationship was forming here. For her it was obvious, and it didn’t seem like he was trying to hide it at all. He even flattened the tires on his truck once, acting like they were stuck and couldn’t make it to school, giving them more time together to hang out.
Dominick, eager to make things official, but afraid of being rejected in front of their friends, told her one day at school that he had a surprise for her in his truck, but really, he just wanted to get her alone to ask her to be his girlfriend.
About 3 months in, he was sure that he was in love with her saying that things, “all felt different”, but he wanted to wait a little longer to make sure she felt the same way. Little did he know, she knew from the beginning because of how different she also felt with him.
Back then, she loved his sense of humor, which was, and still is, very sarcastic, and loved how nice he was, not just to her, but to everyone. Rather than say anything about her feelings, she waited for him to say “I love you” first, which he finally did not long after.
About 3 years in now, they’d been living together for a while, and as sure as they were about one another, they were also both secretly sure that they were ready to take the next steps together and get married.
He proposed September 1st, 2018, with his mom’s help. They were at a family cookout when his mom brought out some flowers and he got on one knee and proposed. To everyone’s shock and surprise, Brittany shouted, “NO WAY!” leading many to wonder if she’d just said no!
As an officiant, I have had the honor of marrying many couples.
Everyone’s love story is as unique as the individual themselves.
After spending just a few minutes with Belize and Jacob, I could tell these two were the real deal.
Belize is somewhat of a self-made Raiders mascot, dressing up and having photos taken with and posted on Instagram by other fans of the game.
It was there on Instagram where Jacob first saw Belize and reached out to ask for her phone number, eventually making plans for their first date at Pier 39 in San Francisco.
There was an immediate, intense chemistry and somewhere along their 11-hour first date, Belize gave him the green light for their first kiss.

It's a wonderful thing to have a close friend or family member to offer to perform your ceremony. Many couples appreciate the intimacy this option offers them on one of the most special days of their lives. While I am not personally against this for any particular reason, you should consider the benefits of hiring a professional wedding Officiant to solemnize your wedding ceremony.
A professional wedding Officiant or Ordained Minister has done this before. That means they are familiar with how a ceremony goes, from coordinating your procession and crafting a beautiful and meaningful ceremony to the legalities of solemnizing your marriage.
A wedding Officiant is adept at public speaking. They are comfortable addressing large groups, projecting their voice, incorporating children/step-children and lost loved ones into your ceremony and they know how to guide you and your wedding party, as well as family and friends, through the ceremony and direct them to the next event.
A pro Officiant has written many, many ceremonies before and will have a lot of creative and wonderful ways to draft the perfect script for you and your partner. In most cases, like myself, they can also incorporate your Love Story and are skilled at performing Unity Ceremonies like Handfastings and Unity Candle or Sand ceremonies.

It's great to want to eat better and exercise, but don't jump into a new diet or exercise routine right before your wedding. This will only stress you out and leave you feeling disappointed when you don't get the results you were looking for. Instead, take this on gradually, giving yourself plenty of time to establish these new habits. 6 months before the Big Day will give you time to acquire and adapt without over stressing you or your body.
