I was going through a tough time.
I’d lost a lot of friends, a lot was happening at home, and I was really looking forward to coming back to work and having my life back.”
The final day of the wedding, as the bride and groom walked down the aisle, Zeml and Smith set out for the last day of their lives.
It was a quiet and dignified affair.
Zemsel’s wedding day was the first time he had ever been in a wedding ceremony.
As he and Smith prepared to depart, they were joined by family members and friends from the ceremony.
“We’ve all gotten together and gotten to know each other for a little bit, and then it’s time to go out for dinner, to get our drinks, and it’s our last day,” Zemell said.
“I know the other people in the wedding and family are going to enjoy this.
I’m not going to take any chances.”
Smith and Zemelle have been together for nearly a decade.
They started dating in 2006 and have been married three times.
In 2009, they had a daughter, and last year, they welcomed another daughter, who is now 7.
Both Zemels are full-time educators.
Smith and Smith said they were both touched by the outpouring of love and support from their community.
“It’s the community that really helped me,” Smith said.
“I think that we’re a little lost,” Zemself said.
As they left the chapel, they spoke with a few people on the sidewalk.
“You know, it’s not like I went into the ceremony expecting that kind of response.
I just thought we were going to go through this and that we were gonna be together,” Smith joked.”
There’s nothing more that you can do than just make the best of a difficult situation,” Zeman said.
