Bill and Sandy have known each other for 52 years - first meeting in kindergarten class at Brecksville school. They were friends all through school but never dated. They went on to get married to other people and had children. Fast forward to 2017 when they attended their 50th class reunion. Now with both being single, they started dating. Their relationship grew quickly to the point of marriage. That’s when they found me. Being an ordained non-denominational minister, I officiated at their wedding on Jan. 11. The beautiful, intimate ceremony took place at their home in Brecksville with their two dear friends , Dwight and Pat Jordan, standing with them as Best Man and Maid of Honor. Now this is where it gets really interesting. Bill and Sandy have known Dwight and Pat since kindergarten as well. What a love story this is - not only with Bill and Sandy but also with their wonderful relationship with their dear friends!
Sandy looked stunning as she walked into the great room with her daisy bouquet wearing an off-the shoulder crepe and chiffon long gown with a matching stole. Bill, looking dapper in a black suit with daisy boutonniere, smiled throughout the entire ceremony. Sandy was a bit more reserved while getting a little emotional. So very sweet!
They were kind enough to include me and my husband, John, who worked as the photographer, to include us in a cake and champagne celebration afterward.
And the story doesn’t stop there. On June 23 , we’re going to do it all over again! They are going to have a large, full-blown wedding at Woodside Event Center. This time their whole family from around the US will gather to celebrate this lovely couple’s love and commitment. Love stories don’t get much better than this.
