It was the summer of 2009 (maybe?? I feel old) when I met Emily. Eating endless freeze pops, tanning, playing card games and ALSO lifeguarding at the local outdoor pool. Man, I miss the days when my biggest worry was whether or not the kids would show up to their 9am swimming lesson in the pouring rain. Anyway, a few summers in, a group of guys would come by most afternoons during the lifeguards break, to do backflips off of the diving board (a violation of the pool rules for sure, sorry Rec Department!). Emily and Ben were always chatting it up, there was CLEARLY chemistry. Those days at the pool seem like a million years ago, and I’m pretty positive no other lifeguard’s summer romance stood the test of time. Except freakin’ these guys! I’m so delighted that I was able to grab some photos of these two love birds before they tie the knot this fall! Yeah, they’re getting MARRIED, I mean, how cute it that!
