We were frequent dance partners and became very good friends over the course of 1½ years before we started to date. We each consider the other as our best friend.
We dated for 2 years and we married on August 5, 2000.
The day before the wedding we went to a secluded spot where it was just God and us and we married in front of Him as our minister. It was an overcast day, but as we walked through the woods birds began to sing welcoming us. When we got to the shore line we walked to a point where the only man-made thing we could see was a television tower. We turned so we could not see the tower. As we started to speak with God making our vows of marriage directly to him a hole formed in the clouds and a ray of sunshine shone down on us. The whole time we were there we did not hear any cars going by on nearby streets though at other times when we have gone to the same spot we always have constantly heard cars passing by.
The next day we had a church wedding. Determined to have a good time and not be tense on OUR day:
