“And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more…” – Christina Perri
Well, ain’t that the truth. We searched and searched and searched for what feel like forever. And believed, perhaps with some skepticism – but believed nonetheless – that The One will finally come. Though when they do, we may not realize right away.
But then, suddenly, it dawned on you. Perhaps as early as your first date, just moments after that magical, earth-shattering first kiss. Or maybe it was after years of experiencing life’s inevitable ups and downs together. Either way, most people could point out that specific instance when their heart of hearts say, “Ahhh…, there you are.”
There you are: The One whom my soul has loved for what felt like a thousand years. The Reason it never worked out with anyone else. The Only One with whom I want to spend the next thousand years.
That’s what we celebrate on every wedding: two people finding each other among seven billion people in this world. If that’s not a cause for celebration, then we don’t know what else :) Rita and Frank’s wedding celebration was elegant and festive at the same time – and definitely one to remember. It started with the wedding ceremony at St. Thomas Aquinas church, followed by a dinner reception at the Little River Farms where Rita’s Irish Dance students came to surprised her and together they did an awesome number together!
Rita and Frank, we are so glad that you found each other. May your love lasts a thousand more years :)
