Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario married her longtime love, Suits actor Patrick J. Adams, in a gorgeous boho wedding in Southern California this past weekend. While we have admittedly spent our free time ogling over the Pinterest board-worthy celebration, there has been one question that still remains: Why did the couple call their camping-themed nuptials "Fort Day?"
The title was plastered all over their wedding invites and even on the top of an old converted school bus. Finally, we got the answer we craved — all thanks to a lengthy Instagram post by Bellisario herself. And let us warn you in advance... It's a TOTAL tearjerker.
"8 years ago we were two friends who has shared very little time together. We were tired and overworked and just wanted to have some peace and quiet. So he invited me over to his apartment where he had built us a pillow fort. He stapled sheets and Christmas lights to the ceiling. We shut the door to the world outside. We didn't answer our phones. And over pancakes and movies. Long late night conversations and sleep. we got to know each other a little better. That was the first "Fort Day." Each year after that our fort got a little bigger until 3 years ago our fort was a brand new home. Our first that we bought together. And in the still and the quiet of that "fort day" he asked me to marry him.
"Well this year it wasn't about peace and quiet. Two days ago we decided to make the biggest fort we could dream of and we asked all our friends and family to come in it. Tents and talent shows. Food trucks and fires. Kids screamed "I Iove fort day!" before jumping into the pool. I can't believe something small between friends could be accepted and embraced by so many people that mean so much to us. And what that said to me was that any of the tough times we've had making 8 years of long distance work was worth it. The pining. The missing. The quiet nights alone believing that it would be worth it. We were right to believe in us. And not only did we believe @halfadams but everyone around us did too. #fortday2016 (thank you to the amazing @dreamsequences for this awesome photo)."
Can you say relationship goals or what?! Here's to many more happy years together, you lovies!
