My favorite story about Maggie and Hans was shared by Maggie’s mom at the wedding during her speech. As an event planner who works A TON of weddings, you can imagine that speeches start to sound the same. Oh, but not these speeches. You know how normally the dads speak since they’re the ones “giving her away,” well, Maggie + Hans wanted to subvert this and their mommas took the mic. Oh, and they dropped those suckers, too. Maggie’s mom explained the proposal --- that Hans was desperately trying to get Maggie down to Brooklyn Bridge Park but she wasn’t into it. But then the second he told her there was a protest for human rights --- she jumped right up and out they went. Amazing, right?!
But that’s just a crumb about the magic of these two. The whole cake is the feeling you get when you see them looking at each other. It’s not just some --- I think she’s beautiful look. It’s the fact that they both know how lucky they are to be with one another as partners and as friends. Maggie is a special education teacher and Hans works in sound tech --- different fields but both actively helping to make something better, stronger, and be its best self; And it is what they’re doing for each other, too. A love party starts to mean so much more when you realize that two people’s love is impacting all their relationships --- with their work, their friends, and people they are just meeting. These two have enough love to change the world, and I’m so excited to watch them do just that.
