A noticeable twinkle flickered in Nick’s eye the whole of Saturday, totally putting those hundreds of AMAZING strings of twinkle lights to shame. The Inn at Leola Village looked like a shimmering yuletide ballroom, complete with four Christmas trees, fireplace, and gold details. The details may have gleamed, but it was Julianna who made her […]

I think we all could have overflowed the banks of the pond at Fern Hill with the happy tears that flowed freely on Mandy and Kevin’s wedding day. Mandy’s mom’s eyes welled up when she took in the sight of her little girl ready to meet her groom, dressed in her lace wedding gown and […]

Genuine. I think that’s the word that describes Dan and Marie’s wedding day the most.

They met in Little Rock, Arkansas–a new city for both of them. Nick had just begun his C-130 pilot training, and Jules had just moved there for her first nursing job. No friends (minus their new co-workers), no family. No connections. How do you even start meeting people? Both decided to give online dating a […]

He walked through the doors of her office. She just happened to be manning the front desk that day. They exchanged smiles as Chelsea escorted Craig and his boss to her employer’s office. The intention for the visit was a tour and a meeting between the two organizations about how they could work together, but […]

He was the sports editor. She was a metro reporter. Their desks were just a few spaces apart at the office of Penn State’s student newspaper, The Daily Collegian. Naturally, that led to conversations, G-chats, and hanging out at office parties. Then, Kevin got up the nerve to ask Mandy to watch “V for Vendetta” […]

She was blindsided. Just over a week before her wedding day, Amanda was in a terrible accident. Thankfully, she came away with just cuts, bruises, and a mangled car. Okay. The wedding could go on. Then, just days before the wedding, her dad became very, very sick and ended up in the hospital needing emergency […]
