SARAH & FINN | CHICAGO, USA

Where do I even begin…

It’s rare in life that you get to know people like Sarah and Finn. For starters, Sarah and Finn went to Julliard. For those of you who don’t know, Julliard is a what dreams are made of for anyone in the arts. Only five in every hundred applicants are accepted. If you’re going to Julliard, you’re considered one of the most talented musicians, actors or dancers in the world. Sarah, she’s a dancer and Finn, he’s an actor.

I say it’s rare that you get to know people like Sarah and Finn because Sarah now works in fashion and spends her time between fashion weeks in NYC and Paris and Finn is better known as Dandy Mott from American Horror Story and recently scored a major role in Unbroken, which was directed by Angelina Jolie. Honestly though, that’s not what sets them apart.

I’ve gotta admit, I was kinda nervous about meeting Sarah and Finn. While they’d never given me any reason to feel intimidated, I kinda was. But I shouldn’t have been. I drove out to their venue in Chicago the day before the wedding. It was freezing so I left Kesh and Roo in the car with the heater running, while I made a dash inside. I saw Sarah and nervously waved. She came straight over to me and wrapped her arms around me in a hug filled with so much warmth. Immediately, she asked how Kesh and Roo were, introduced me to everyone and said how grateful she was that I was there. Finn was exactly the same. For a guy on the up and up in both film and TV, I was floored. I don’t know if I’ve met a guy with as much humility as Finn.

Sarah and Finn’s wedding was special. I said it. I’ve been to a lot of weddings and this was a special one. Their love is made of something tangible. You can actually feel the goodness here. During the last dance of the night, Sarah and Finn held each other and Finn cried. He just cried. You know when you’re so damn happy, there’s nothing left to do but cry? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a guy happier than he was in that moment. Sarah wiped away his tears and kissed him on the cheek. They ran through rows of sparklers held by their loved ones and drove away holding each other in their old Subaru.

Thank you so much, Sarah and Finn. Best day.
