BestFlag is passionate about stories. Our customers’ stories make it easy to come to work each day. Some of those stories are too good not to share.
Today, we’re happy to present a telling of BestFlag customer Trisha’s engagement to her fiance’ Sean. This account was written by a close friend of the couple. Trish and Sean ordered custom burgee flags for their wedding from BestFlag.
"Sean and Trisha are getting married on July 15th 2017 at the United States Naval Academy where they both sailed in a College National Championship. The couple is collecting Burgees from different point throughout their lives representative of the many guests attending their wedding. The Armed Forces Burgee is a representation of when their love story began. They have also designed a new burgee representing the two of them to fly on their many future boats.
Sean and Trisha met traveling and sailing, a love they have had their entire lives that they can now share together forever. When Sean and Trish met, they were both officers in the military, Trisha in the Navy, and Sean in the Coast Guard.
Every year the armed forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard) choose their top athletes to represent the United States and compete in the World Championship. Sean and Trisha were chosen to represent the United States at the World Military Championship in the sport of sailing to be held in Doha Qatar.
Both Sean and Trisha grew up competitively sailing and began their world travels going to races. They completed a week of training in Miami at the US Sailing Center and were off to the Middle East to compete!
They competed in Doha, Qatar which is where they began to really get to know each other and the start of a lifetime of memories! For the next two years, Sean and Trish flew to see each other as much as possible while maintaining a long distance military relationship. Sean and Trish both come from different sides of the country Sean being from San Francisco CA and Trisha Long Island NY.
Sailing has led them to many exciting things in life and now to each other. They are true adventure seekers traveling all over sailing, skiing, surfing, mountain biking, paddle boarding, and windsurfing. It was only fitting that Sean proposed to Trisha on the top of the ski mountain surrounded by all of her family. They left right after for a two-week 'engagement-moon' for some windsurfing in Maui."
Congrats Sean and Trisha! We’re so happy we’ve met you both, and it’s been a pleasure to do business with you.
