Today I want to tell you a story about a girl who played hockey and a boy who played football who were married in a beautiful village near the ocean. Meredith and Dave were married at Wickenden Chapel at the Tabor Academy in Marion, Massachusetts in a ceremony that was beautiful and tearful. As Meredith told me before the ceremony, “My family cries. A lot. About everything.” It’s true. And it was very very adorable. However, they also laugh. A lot. And the toasts and the dancing at this wedding were legendary. Here’s their story.
How did the two of you meet?
Mer and Dave met again at a party in February 2011 with other football and ice hockey teammates. They started dating that next week.
How did you know this was “the one” for you?
Dave: I knew Meredith was “the one” for me when I realized I could not imagine going through life without her by my side. We have had rocky moments, like every couple, but not once during these moments did I ever not want to be with her the next day. She supports me and pushes me to be a better person. Without her, I would be lost; and anyways, if you can survive living in a tiny, overpriced apartment in Boston with someone and still want to spend every day with them, it’s pretty clear that they are “the one”.
Meredith: I’ve always been really shy, but when I’m with Dave he pushes me out of my comfort zone to try new things and be more outgoing. I knew Dave was the one after we had been living together for a few months. He is so caring and thoughtful and does everything he can to make me happy every day. I can’t imagine not spending the rest of my life with Dave.
