aOne of the best parts of officiating weddings is hearing how the couples I marry have met. Each of the stories are so unique making me believe that you can find love anywhere. I love a good love story, but what makes them extra special are how ordinary situations can create extraodinary unions.
I just met a couple who met online. Not that unusual until they told me the whole story. They were both avatars on an internet game. The bride's son changed her avatar to a fairy while she was cooking dinner. She played the game with her son often but she did not know how to change her avatar back. She watched the little cartoon character of herself flit and fly through the game until she found herself lost in a section of the imaginary castle. She reached out for help to the other avatars in that section and low and behold she met her husband to be! From this chance encounter a long distance relationship developed. A boy from Jersey and a girl from California meet in cyber space! After a year and a half of courting her over the phone he flew to California and they met. The rest as they say is history! I am honored to be officiating their wedding next Saturday afternoon.
The path to a loving relationship is often unexpected. Navigate the world with an open heart and do your thing. You never know where your beloved will find you or where you will find your beloved.
Please share your love stories with me. Each one is so much fun to hear!
