Sandra and Dominique’s Wedding at Golden Sands, Ocean City, Maryland
Their wedding was a true occasion of love and celebration. As mother earth was shining down on them, they pledged their love to one another surrounded by family and friends. The entire day was just perfect from beginning to end and came off without a hitch.
The Beginning of The Love Story
Dominique met Sandra at the hair salon, he was sitting in her seat for a hair cut and as the story goes he was instantly in love with her. She, however, played it cool because a) he was a client and b) she was in a relationship.
“Of course, that didn’t deter me at all at least not for a while, I just kept getting hair cuts even when I didn’t need one,” he told me during a conversation. “However, after trying for months with no change in results I finally gave up and starting dating someone else.”
And just as he was coming to an end persuing Sandra her relationship with her boyfriend was coming to a close as well.
“I think I ended my relationship with my then-boyfriend because in my heart I knew that I wanted to get to know Dominique more and I just couldn’t do that while being tied to someone else. Even if it would have been nothing more than friendship in my heart I knew that I was not being honest. So, after months of struggle, I ended that relationship and when I was ready to get to know Dominique more he stopped coming to the shop.”
A New Beginning
But of course, that is not how the story ends, and when people are meant to be together they will find a way of making it happen.
After months of getting haircuts somewhere else he decided that even if the couldn’t be more than friends, he decided to get back to Sandra’s hair salon. “I decided that even if we never going to be more than casual friends I wanted to see her if nothing else than to get my hair cut.”
Miracles of miracles, they both were free and Sandra couldn’t wait to tell him that she broke up with her boyfriend and now they could pursue a relationship together.
Playing It Cool To Get The Girl
“You know, I played it cool, even though my heart was skipping a beat and I told her that I was sorry she broke up with her boyfriend, paid my bill and walked out. I was going to text her later in the evening but before I could she texted me and told me that I was a fool if I didn’t ask her out.”
So, here we are a year later watching these two pledging their love to each other, with tears of joy all around.
May you be forever as happy as you were that day!

Getting ready is not hard to do when you are having fun
Sandra was the perfect bride, taking everything in stride and not missing a beat. Her happiness on her wedding day was infectious.
The moment a bride puts on her wedding dress is always magical, there is a transition from party time to “I am getting married” that is palatable.” Magical even!
