Tears rolled down both of their cheeks as they read each other's notes just before the entered the chapel to become husband and wife. They were in different rooms and had no idea that the other was reacting much the same. Sweet words of love and affection were written on those pages and they both shed tears of joy. Blessed. That is what they felt and what they expressed in their written words to one another. To marry each other was in their minds, one of God's greatest gifts to them and they didn't want to leave it unsaid.
"I can't wait to fall more and more in love with each other for the rest of our lives." Those were Chad's sentiments as he thought about the days ahead of him and Morgan and it made me smile. Their love for one another was so evident on that April day in the beautiful hill country of San Antonio and I know it will only grow. The day started bright and early and all of Morgan's closest friends piled into her bed with her at the La Cantera Hill Country Resort. 'Morgan, you are getting MARRIED today!!' they said and hugged their friend tightly with the sweetest excitement. As you will see in the photos below, these two are SO well loved by many and in my opinion, that shows that they love well themselves.
It was spring of 2012 and he needed a date to his fraternity’s formal. He’d only seen a picture of her from her sorority composite but was taken by how naturally beautiful she was so he took a risk and asked her to go with him. She quickly found that they had a lot in common and that though she didn’t really know him, people always had the most wonderful things to say about him. Not to mention, in her own words, ‘I thought he was a total hunk.’ They quickly found that their unexpected blind date was the start of a very beautiful love story. Not only did they share common interests but they shared a common faith and therefore a common life purpose. This, as was so evident in their wedding, is the foundation of their relationship and the reason behind all that they do.
They met at a Halloween party a few years ago in New York City. She was a south Texas girl transplanted into the streets of NYC. He was from upstate New York, a true northern boy. The few times I’ve been to NYC, it is not hard to tell how unique it is in bringing all kinds of worlds together. Well, this great city didn’t disappoint when it helped their two worlds collide at that Halloween party. The Texas girl and the New York boy hit it off and the rest is history.
