Radcliffe Couple: Meet Emily & Justin, the Newlysweds Who Never Sweat the Small Stuff
We would like to introduce you to the recently married, Emily and Justin. They got married this past fall on their family’s farm which was a reflection of their love for animals and the outdoors. Only married a few months, their love will certainly last a lifetime by following Emily’s own advice: “Don't sweat the small stuff, it's not going to be perfect no matter how hard you try. Just enjoy all the ups and all the downs.”
How did you meet?
We met in a bar in downtown Baltimore.
Describe the proposal.
We love to fish so he took me to Cancun, Mexico for a fishing trip. He proposed to me the minute we got to the resort since he couldn't wait any longer.
What was the date / season of your wedding? Did you have a theme? What was the inspiration behind this?
We got married on October 15, 2016. The theme was an outdoor/rustic theme. Fall is one of the prettiest times at my family’s farm so I knew I wanted the wedding to take place in October.
What was the best part of the BIG day?
My family is from all over the world: India, Australia, Texas and China. They all made the trip for our special day and that was truly the best part of the wedding. It was so nice getting to spend the week before the wedding with them as well.
What is one piece of advice you can offer other couples in planning their wedding?
Don't sweat the small stuff, it's not going to be perfect no matter how hard you try. Just enjoy all the ups and all the downs.
Did you take a honeymoon?
I am currently in school so we did not have a proper honeymoon right after the wedding. We plan on taking our honeymoon to Thailand as soon as I graduate.
What is a fun fact about you as a couple?
We love going to the range for some target shooting. Actually, my newest handgun was a wedding present from my husband.
How does it feel to be married?
Being married is awesome, but if we never got married I would still feel the same way. I'm just happy to be with a man that loves me and puts up with me bringing home “broken” animals from work.
