bridget + alex

I remember the moment vividly when I first got Bridget’s e-mail. I had just stepped into a wifi cafe in Florence, where I was living at the time, to grab a coffee and check in with reality when I saw it. It was titled “Cayman Islands.” I opened it immediately.

When I first met Bridget and Alex they mentioned to me that Alex had gotten the opportunity to work in the Cayman Islands and they were still entertaining the idea of actually making it happen. Alex seemed more like he was ready to go, but I could sense Bridget’s apprehension. I joked to Alex that we would get her on board by the wedding.

Flash back now to the cafe, and her e-mail, and a delicious coffee I wish I was drinking right this minute. Her message was short, but to the point. She needed persuasion. She told me she was struggling with the decision and needed to be convinced. I figured since she was writing this to me, a person who doesn’t think twice before jumping on a plane to an island or another country, her heart was already in it. I finished my coffee, ordered an Aperol Spritz at the bar, and got to writing.

On October 10, just over a week ago today, Alex, Bridget and an entourage of suitcases boarded a plane in NYC and headed to start their new life in Cayman. I hope you two are reading this and preparing to re-live some wedding highlights from a hammock, with tiny umbrellas in your drinks. I could not be more excited for you both. YOU DID IT!

Cheers to you two, your gorgeous wedding, the new life you’ve recently made for yourselves, and an extremely inspiring leap of faith.
