The Story Behind This Colorful Wedding is Like a Real Life Rom-Com

Taylor had made up her mind: She could never date Chris. Or so she thought…

The now happily married pair first crossed paths their junior year of high school, and quickly became close friends (although being “just friends” wasn’t exactly what Chris had in mind). Still, years passed and the duo moved deeper into bestie territory, and when Chris finally worked up the courage to send a love letter to Taylor, she panicked and ran.

For quite some time, their happily ever after remained on hold—there was another boy, they were too good of friends, she didn’t see him that way, it was too much of a commitment. Until their senior year of college, when Chris finally threw in the towel on their confusing courtship. And in true rom-com fashion, Taylor suddenly realized she had been in love with him all along. It look a lot of courage and a major confession to win Chris back, but three years of dating later, with a custom “Will You Marry Me” label on Taylor’s favorite soda, a personalized pearl ring, and a sunset proposal on the beach, the pair got engaged.

Take a look at some seriously sweet photos from their long-awaited big day. Taylor and Chris’s bold color palette is kind of everything!
