A West Virginia boy meets a Northern Virginia girl, they fall in love, adopt a puppy, get engaged, and plan their wedding. Their wedding is “The Modern Romantic”— a lace gown, a long veil, a first look at an historic manor house, and a fluffy bouquet… with a watercolor cake, agate escort cards, and midnight photos at the US Capitol.
I never get tired of weddings.
I tear up at almost every first kiss.
I think pretty & styled is nice, but real life is beautiful.
I would rather cook for a friend than buy a meal out.
I care more about having a beautiful soul than a perfect body.
I cherish every lingering morning, and end every night with a kiss.
I believe marriage is one of the greatest earthly gifts anyone can receive.
I believe in telling your story, not my own version of it.
