All lovers quarrel, but these two can’t even decide when their first date was. Ask them and you’ll hear two different stories. Sarah tells of when they drove to the lake at Houston Woods and sat together talking and laughing while the red moon set. Jon remembers it as the time in Germantown eating and drinking at El Rancho… To be the tie breaker I think it’s sweet that they both remember so many special moments from the beginning so clearly, that they don’t quite remember when exactly their beginning began.
For them it started at work, he delivered feed to a store she worked at and they both made sure they’d be there when the other was going to be. He’d adjust delivery times, so he could “bump” into her and she would cut class to make sure she was there when the deliveries were going to be made even if she wasn’t scheduled to receive them or work at all that day, if it meant seeing each other, they were there.
This couple is down to earth, and they are remarkably similar to one another. When I asked Jon his favorite thing about Sarah he said “Her compassion for others” it made my heart swell to hear her answer “I love the way that Jon is always thinking of a way to help others”. It only made sense that Jon’s daughter has been watered with love and empathy her whole life and was moved to tears with happiness for her father.
This wedding was special in other ways too, Jon and Sarah toasted using heirloom glasses that are a wedding tradition in Sarah’s family and it was a way for Sarah’s family to show Jon a warm welcome into their lives. Sarah also gave a touching toast in remembrance to Jon’s late father, as a surprise tribute.
It’s clear to see why these two ever so loving people, choose to continue to love each other so fully. I wish you all the best Jon and Sarah, your hearts are huge and I’m happy you have each other to fill them.
