It was storming the day I met Veronica and Emad. We talked and shared our stories in a warm coffee shop, occasionally looking out to see if the rain was slowing. By the time we were ready to say goodbye, I felt like I had known them for years.
On their wedding day, Veronica dressed upstairs while Emad entertained family on the first floor of their home. They were careful to never cross paths. Just as Veronica was preparing to leave for the church, she answered a phone call with a smile. Her voice was soft and quiet but her words were spoken with excitement as she shared a quick conversation with her soon-to-be husband.
Throughout the day, he kissed her hand or held her close every opportunity he had. It was something special. Their love is one that you feel lucky to witness. It radiates from them like the suns rays, pouring over everyone around.
