They met while she was learning to fight fires in a small town in Illinois. He was an EMT, who saves lives.
At first he saw a young girl, but when they met again, she had blossomed into a young woman. She caught his eye, things heated up, the spark became a flame that neither wanted to extinguish.
Today, neither one can imagine a life with out the other.
He wiped a tear when she entered the room. Her father gave her away at the altar, and then he reminded the groom, that he has a shotgun and the two shared a laugh. The couple read each other their handwritten vows, in a sweet and simple country ceremony. They said "I do" in a barn, that was surrounded by tall corn stalks, ready to be harvested. There was a popcorn festival up the street. People came from miles around.
Their special day was witnessed by those who love and support them.
When the minister was finished, he walked from the pulpit, over to the bongos, sat down and started playing and the party began. The band sang beautiful harmonies while people paid a dollar for a chance to dance with the bride and groom. There was a fire pit and s'more's for those who needed "s'more love" and an elderly couple, who had been married over 60 years, was tearing up the dance floor.
Wishing you long lasting love. Congratulations Nikki and Jason Weiss.
A wedding in Middle America.
