Here is a story for the ages.....Madison was working at school when a handsome young man entered in, she was curious about him and so she asked around and made sure someone gave her number to this guy. A connection was made when Robert took the chance and called her. They set up a date. When this typical two hour dinner date turned into closing down the restaurant they both knew there was something special there..and through it all they grew closer, merging their families together, finding each other in a balance and respecting/loving one another through love, kindness and selflessness. So here they were, on May 19th of 2017 amongst family and friends to say their I do's. Both had such a beautiful balance to the day. Not everything can run perfectly and although the rain clouds came their happiness and joy shined brighter than the weather. We were honored to be a part of their big day, thankful the rain didn't collapse down on them during the ceremony and just loved their interactions with their loved ones! There was so much enthusiasm and love that any hiccup seemed to be just an after thought for these two. A lesson we should all learn from. It reminds me of the expression 'keep calm and carry on' but forMadison and Robert it was 'keep calm and make it epic with whatever comes our way". Congratulations to Madison and Robert, keep strengthening each other with your optimism and realism! You two have a love that most aspire to behold! Here are a few favorites from that day!
