With age, comes experiences that lead to growth, self-awareness, gratitude and appreciation for all things that bring joy to your life. Your choices become clearer, your love becomes stronger, and your commitments are made with certainty. Chuck and Linda spent years loving and learning from each other, and finally decided it was time to make it official. They invited their friends and family to their home and had the sweetest surprise wedding as they exchanged vows on a hay wagon.
“Chuck, I feel like everything in my life has led me to you. My choices, my heartbreaks, my regrets, everything. When we are together, my past seems worth it. If I had done one thing differently, I might never have connected with you.
I appreciate you more, because of the road I’ve traveled. My story brought me to you. Thank you for waiting for me to be ready. You have been my Best Friend, playmate, confidant……and Biggest Challenge!!! Today, surrounded by people who Love us, I give you my Heart, my Promise, that I will walk with you, hand & hand wherever our journey takes us.”
“Linda, Our house would never have been a ‘home’ without you. You have become my soulmate and the love of my life. You’ve stood by my side like the ‘rock you are’ through hard times. You’ve never wavered, but stood your ground through my struggles with alcoholism, physical surgeries, which included heart surgery. You’ve been my doctor when I needed it, you’ve been my wife, without the title, you’ve not only loved your kids, but you loved my sons and I as if we were always one family, your heart never seeing a difference. To that end, I give you my life, my love and my devotion. Let’s never forget where we’ve been and who we are. Let this ring signify my undying love to you and all that we share.”
