This journey for us has always been about the people. This silly black box is like a passport, a permission slip, or a vip invitation for pizza at Coppa with two of the most amazing people you’ve ever met.
Enter Madison + Justin.
Although it’s only been a short time since that first meeting, we feel like we’ve known them forever. We’ve seen them both work so hard independently and together, Madison working 37 jobs while volunteering, while going to school, while planning a wedding – Justin planning, then opening, then totally crushing at his new shop Pioneer Goods Co. in the South End. [I think there have been very few hours of sleep between the two of them.] But the coolest thing we’ve witnessed is how they have grown together. It seems like a relationship that couldn’t have gotten any stronger somehow has. They constantly remind us of what it really means to support and love your partner.
Their wedding was one of the highlights of our year. It was the culmination and celebration of all of their hard work. We felt so honored to part of a very intimate group of friends and family so emotionally invested in this couple and this union. When the ceremony ended everyone was in this euphoric state of bliss, smiling and laughing and crying at the same time.
And this is what it’s all about for us. It’s these people. New, incredible friends we hope to know for a long time.
We recently found out that just a month after their wedding, Madison + Justin’s sister was diagnosed with some really scary stuff. We are heartbroken for them and can’t imagine what they are going though. We feel really lucky to know this family, they are the best of the best. And if you don’t already know them – we are sure you would feel exactly the same.
