On Saturday night I had the pleasure of attending my best friend’s wedding at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. Alison and her fiancé rented a house on the lake where 40 people gathered for the weekend to celebrate this wonderful event.
The morning of the wedding several of us headed down to the dock to hang lights and string red rose petals. However, just hours before the wedding was to begin dark clouds rolled in and a torrential downpour ensued. Lightning lit up the sky as the lake danced with rain drops. We began to wonder if the wedding would have to take place at an alternate location and all of our decorating efforts were for not. We sat for hours staring at our AccuWeather app and clinging to the hope it would be accurate and the sun would reappear. Less than an hour before the wedding the clouds parted and we rushed down to finish the decorating. Tables cloths were thrown down, candles were lit, an arch was erected and petals were lightly scattered over a white runner. As the clock stuck 7:30 p.m. the music started and a beautiful bride walked down a slightly damp aisle to marry the man of her dreams.
And in case that wasn’t enough of a love story for you, the groom also surprised the bride with a shiny new corvette. And they lived happily ever after.
