Hello, lovely readers! Today, we have the pleasure of sharing the heartwarming story and beautiful moments from the wedding of Sarah Velasquez and Sean Newcomb.

A Decade of Love and Adventure

Sarah and Sean’s love story began a decade ago on the campus of the University of Hartford. Both avid sports enthusiasts with a circle of mutual friends, their paths crossed, and they embarked on a journey of love and adventure. This deep connection only grew stronger during their vacation in Mexico at Chable Maroma, where Sean proposed to Sarah on New Year’s Eve, a fitting prelude to their wedding day.

Love Across Continents

Sarah and Sean’s love has known no bounds, even crossing continents. While Sarah was studying abroad in Rome, Sean surprised her with a visit, bringing along a bag filled with her favorite things from America. This gesture made Sarah feel like she was at home with her family, which she missed dearly. It was a moment that solidified their love and commitment to each other.

Sean Newcomb’s Baseball Career

Sean Newcomb’s career in baseball is not only a testament to his dedication and talent but also an integral part of his journey with Sarah. As a professional baseball player, Sean’s schedule often presents unique challenges for couples, but their love has always been resilient, helping them navigate these obstacles.

A Dream Wedding Day

Sarah described her wedding day as nothing short of perfect, from the moment she woke up until she fell asleep. The excitement of their first look, with Sarah descending a grand staircase in her breathtaking gown, was an unforgettable moment. Despite initial concerns about the weather, Sarah and Sean’s day turned out to be beautiful and filled with joy, especially when the sun finally warmed up their Boston backdrop.

The Dress of Her Dreams

Sarah’s wedding gown was a reflection of her timeless elegance and love for the winter season. She found her perfect dress at Bridals by Lori in Atlanta, four years prior to the big day. The moment she put on the veil, it all felt complete. With her mom and sister by her side, they all knew it was the one. The gown featured long sleeves, a fitting choice for their winter wedding. Sarah even had two dresses, originally planning for a reception dress change.

Bride’s Advice for the Big Day

Sarah has some sage advice for future brides, especially those planning winter weddings. She recommends being prepared with a shawl or jacket, hand warmers, and a clutch filled with essentials like floss, lipstick, lip gloss, mints, a safety pin, a lint roller, and tissues. But most importantly, she advises living in the moment, keeping your phone aside, and savoring every second because the day flies by in the blink of an eye.

Sarah Velasquez and Sean Newcomb’s New Year’s Eve wedding was a celebration of love that transcended time and distance. From their university days to their romantic proposal in Mexico, and the dreamy winter wedding day in Boston, their love story is truly remarkable. We wish them a lifetime of love, happiness, and more beautiful moments to capture!
