Rustic Barn Sunshine Love – Valley View Farm


Spence. The day we met, I accidentally tripped over your crutches, but I do not think for a second that we met by chance. I know in my heart and the deepest part of my soul that you were put in my life for a reason, this reason, and for that, I'm forever grateful.
It was July 5th, 2014. We had both gone out to reconnect with some friends. I was in a cast, on crutches, and on the road to recovery from a broken ankle that night when my source of transportation was knocked over from the side of our table. The second I heard your voice and saw your beautiful face apologizing for accidentally knocking them over, I was distracted from my conversation. From that night forward, I could not stop thinking about you.
In you, I found my truest friend and partner, my protector, even from the spiders. My teacher and a once-in-a-lifetime love. Underneath your handsome smile that still gives me butterflies and your humor that could brighten anyone's day, there was a side to you that I am lucky enough to see and experience, a side of you that made me fall in love with you, and I will spend the rest of my life cherishing and protecting it.
When you saw me walk without assistance for the first time in the Whole Foods parking lot-- I felt we had accomplished something together. We have always been a team and continue to be on this day, and I know you're the woman I wanna spend the rest of my life with.
With my whole heart, I take you as a my husband, acknowledging and accepting your faults and strength, as you do mine. I vow to always make our family's love and happiness my priority. I vow to support you and your dreams and your goals. You truly elevate me and bring me so much happiness and laughter every single day. I often think to myself, how did I get so lucky? I look at our life we have together, and I still can't believe it's real. Standing here today, I feel so honored to become your wife. You're my person, the love of my life. Today and always, I love you.
You are my best friend. And that is why I vow to you today in front of everyone that is here that I will always support and love you unconditionally. I promise to be faithful, to always make our family's love and happiness a priority throughout our lives. I am yours through sickness and health, through sorrows and success. You are my woman. And I am the luckiest man in the world. I am so excited to start our lives together. I did, I do, and I will always love you.
May your life together be immersed in love and excitement, may you strive to enrich each other in every possible way. We wish you joy and happiness as you embark on this journey together. And now, by the power vested in me by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I pronounce you husband and wife. Spencer, you may kiss the bride. I am wildly honored to introduce to you Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Shumway.
You picture Spencer in a cast and crutches. He's like, hey, hey you see that hot blonde girl over there? He was gonna pretend to fall over and make it seem like Molly tripped him and that it was her fault so that she would talk to him. I'm like I guess you can try that. She's probably gonna think you're a big idiot.
Molly is literally one of my favorite people to go out to eat with. If I'm sitting there debating on what I want or we're talking about it, she's like, yeah, let's get 'em both, let's get all of that. Just order it, it'll be great.
I think everyone in this room can agree that life is unpredictable. There are days that knock us off our feet, make us question how we will ever move forward. Then, there are days that are so beautiful, magical, filled with hope and promise. Days that allow us to trust in this earthly journey we are on. Days that give us certainty to know that in this moment, we are exactly where we are meant to be.
You guys are like pretty near and dear to my heart and I just wanna say congratulations. You two make a beautiful couple, and I hope you make lots and lots of wonderful nieces and nephews. Here's to you and a wonderful future together.
