Welcome to the HMP blog, a journal to feature our couples and their love stories, our lives, travels, and ATX adventures! Stay a while and say hello!
You just can’t make this up…
Sebastian and Amber-Lea (aka the new Mr. & Mrs. Martinez) are standing in front of all their loved ones next their very best friend. Amber-Lea’s maid of honor just delivered a tear jerker and it was the Best Man’s turn. He starts:
“I’m Albert Lopez, or those of you who don’t know me. And for the next 40 minutes, I’ll be your tour guide through the lives of Amber-Lea and Sebastian. One of the great, seemingly impossible, love stories of our time.”
Do you already know where we’re going here?? Because Amber-Lea and I did – and she shot me a look like “no way this is about to go down!!” He continues:
“Now, Webster’s Dictionary defines “wedding” as the fusing of two metals with a hot torch. Well, you know something. I think you guys are two metals. Gold medals.”
He nailed it. I mean I don’t want to brag or anything but my memory is only good for quoting The Office and he was spot on!!
The Office call backs keep coming though. During sunset portraits Sebastian said whom and Amber-Lea was able to tell us all the correct usage of the word.
And the bar sign that Amber-Lea made started with “Do you think drinking alcohol is COOL?” Their signature drinks were of course an Orange-Vod-Juice-Ka and the Threat Level Midnight. I died.
They are such fun, bubbly people and you just can’t help smiling watching them.
A server came over at the end of the night and told Amber-Lea he had been working at Camp Lucy for a year, and they were the cutest couple he had ever seen. I mean DUH!!
It really feels like Amber-Lea and I are soul sisters by how deep our love goes for The Office and Erin Condren! Side note if you’re not following her planning instagram you need to right now, she inspires me every day.
