When you wish upon a star

You never know what you may find while wishing on a shooting star.


My dearest love,

The choices we make in life are made with reason and one should never regret; I truly believe that.  Those choices mold you into who you are today.  Keep your eyes and heart open- Be not afraid to realize when something good walks into your life and take that chance.

As you inched your way into my heart, I knew… I knew that there was something special happening.  The way you supported me, the way you made me smile, and best yet… the way that I could be myself with you, my true self.

The full moon with that shooting star, the cold night walk was scary and excitable all at the same time.  I knew I had to let you know how I felt.  As I took one small step, then another, then another, closer to you and you didn’t pull away- well that was amazing.  Our first kiss was like fireworks and the way you turned me around and held me so tight was something I will never forget.

I found what I have been looking for, I found my other half, I found the person I was meant to be with.  Fate is a funny thing; I never really believed in it before. If you think about it, of all of the circumstances that brought us together- now that is fate.  You continue to open my eyes to the wonders and beauty of the world, the wonders of true and complete love.

Our story is just beginning my love; this is our fairytale, our dream come true. I will be with you through it all and ride the ocean waves with you. I promise to stand by you, to support you, to laugh with you, and to make you smile.  I promise, I promise I will give all that I am, all that I have.  This feeling I have for us, for you, is like nothing else.

I Love you with all my heart and soul and look so forward to our future together.

Dan and I were married November 18, 2013 on Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.  A delightful sunny day surrounded by beauty and love (I’m glad my Mother, Sister, and Aunt could share this day with us).  We said “I Do”.  Two people who found each other that share a passion…  The passion of photography.  That is our thing- we travel, we capture, we laugh, we explore, we keep our eyes open and see the beauty in areas that we may otherwise overlook.

*Thank you to “Marry Me in Colorado” an elopement service Dan found that fit us perfectly.  Visit their website if you would like to have a stress free wedding!  Thanks Linda and Kevin!  We would also like to thank the photographer-Mark.  His work can be seen at –www.MarryMeInColorado.SmugMug.com this is where all of the photo galleries – including ours will be found!!

    Beautiful photos and words. Congratulations to you and Dan. Best wishes and hopes for many years of happiness for both of you. 😀

  4. What a beautiful, heartfelt letter. Thanks for sharing it with us! In a world with so many negative stories, it’s uplifting to hear a true love story. Your priority was that you wanted to get married, not have a wedding. How refreshing!

    To a life of love, laughter, and lenses (hee hee). 🙂

    Beautiful! No other way to describe this… the perfect letter to describe love, and companionship. Congratulations! Best wishes for a very happy married life.

  10. Congrats you two! There is nothing better in life than finding someone you can enjoy it with. 🙂

    Congratulations and much happiness to you and Dan, Cynthia! Your photos are beautiful. I only have one question: if you are both photographers, who helps you schlepp your gear the way my darling, patient husband does LOL ?????!!!!!

  12. Thank you Tina. We both will carry our gear but I would have to say that he is more often the gentleman and will take on extra loads if he sees that I am struggling. I also would have to say that he watches out for me as I tend to become absorbed in what I am shooting at the time. However, he is the only one that has fallen through an old rickety floor 🙂

    Wishing you much happiness in the years ahead. I was also lucky enough to find the “right one”. We had 43 lovely years together before he passed away.
