Joy and Craigs love story is one for the ages. In High School, Craig always had his eye out for Joy, the beautiful and popular cheerleader but their friendship never blossomed into anything romantic. Years went by – over 30 – and Craig was back in town visiting family when he crossed paths with Joy. As beautiful as the day he met her, and single ;-), he knew he had to shoot his shot, telling Joy that he wouldn’t leave town until she agreed to go out with him. She excitedly spent that night catching up with him… and from there the two were inseparable. Some time later Craig decided to move hundreds of miles to be closer to Joy and within just two years of reuniting, they were engaged… it was destiny!
The warm summer afternoon flowed seamlessly, as if it was truly meant to be. Their union was supported and embraced by not only their friends and family, but most importantly, their children. My heart was so full, as I watched two families combine as one. Joy, being a bubbly bright sole, was the Yin to Craigs reserved and calm Yang. It was clear the same went for Craigs daughter and Joys sons, as they celebrated the wedding as if they were life long friends. Witnessing something this spectacular doesn’t happen every day, so I feel blessed to have been a part of it. Congratulations to Joy, Craig and the new family they’ve created together!
