In a wedding that truly reflected their personalities and their style Karen and Jon were married on the 5th anniversary of their first date! Karen and Jon were married at St. Patrick’s Church where Jon attends service regularly, and Karen worn her mothers wedding dress, just slightly altered. And then there was the candy – jolly rancher candy, something they shared on their first date, and when Jon proposed to Karen he hid the ring in the candy for her to find!
I remember meeting Karen and Jon to talk about their wedding, and first hearing their story, and of these details. As they recounted them they would often look at each other and smile. These details have meaning for them, the memories and the feelings that go with these memories are part of their story, and bind them together. May they continue to add detail, happy memories and stories like this to their life together, that is my wish for them.
