When I first met Anthony and Laura, I couldn’t help but be impressed at their character, maturity, and kindness. They shared with me about significant personal challenges they’ve each overcome. Then, when things were looking up and they got together, Laura faced a major cancer diagnosis and surgery, and Anthony suffered a terrible fall at work days into Laura’s recovery.
They were both facing a new set of challenges, and situations like these can bring people together or pull them apart. It was so special to see them talk and interact with each other that day, because I could see the fruit of their decision to love and care for each other, even in the middle of difficult circumstances. After they both recovered, Anthony proposed and they started planning their wedding!
It was a beautiful summer day at Ravenwood Golf Course in Victor, NY. They wrote letters to each other to read before the ceremony, and the gifts they gave to their wedding party were a hit - it was so fun to see their friends’ and families’ expressions as they opened them!
Their ceremony was officiated by a close friend - it was her first wedding, and she did great! Their family was a ton of fun to be around all day long, and I’m so honored I got to be part of Anthony and Laura’s big day. Thank you, you two!
