The Knot Dream Wedding Couple

My name is Samantha Carisch but not for long...on June 4, 2015 I will be marrying the most amazing guy I have ever known and becoming Mrs. Taylor Sinclair!
Life has challenged our relationship in numerous ways and has yet to affect how incredibly in love we are and our ability to grow even closer as a couple. After canceling our wedding plans twice due to my mom's health concerns, it brings tears to our eyes knowing that we’ll be able to share our wedding day, which may be our last “big life moment,” with all of our loved ones.
Taylor and I feel so blessed to have been given this opportunity and are so thankful that our love for each other has only grown stronger in spite of how challenging everything has been. We have seen strengths in one another that we would never know existed without these challenges, and it has further solidified what we already knew to be true: We were absolutely meant to be together.
As you can imagine, this whole period remains an emotional roller coaster as my mom continues her fight with her health. However, knowing that I am well on my way to marrying the man of my dreams has kept her so positive and given all of us beautiful memories to look forward to. It has made my heart so happy to see my mom’s excitement throughout this whole process. She can’t wait to see what America votes on for all the details and neither can we!
