“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
I love this quote. I had not heard this before Alison's mother shared it with us in her toast to the two of them. It is so fitting a quote for these two who definitely live by the latter part of that sentiment. We sat down to some nachos and beer with Ron and Alison to talk about their big day. It was a nice opportunity for us to get to know them and what their personalities and tastes are. It's the wedding day itself, though, that says the most about who the two people getting married are . Family, and close friends are a big part of who we all are. Their words on a wedding day say a lot about our character and values. But watching how the couple interacts with each other goes a long way in telling what they are like individually. We really get to know our couples from putting together their wedding day story, and we so enjoyed the whole experience start to finish with Ron and Alison. This is a man who will never regret waiting for the right woman to come into his life. We couldn't be happier for the two of them!
A big thank you to Sarah and all of the awesome staff at French's Point for making this day all that it was. They took the elements that Ron and Alison dreamed up and created, and made them a reality. They even made sure we stayed hydrated; gotta love that!
