“But then when Dana came around,” Joel said into the microphone during his best man speech. Joel paused. Collin looked over at Dana, “he was the coolest and most confident guy.”
Dana smiled up at Collin.
I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room.
Joel was right. Together Dana and Collin were two of the coolest, most confident, awesome individuals who go after their dreams and support each other no matter what.
As high school sweethearts, they have been through it all together. From attending art classes together to going to every high school dance together, to living hours apart during under grad and even farther away while Collin was in Medical School. No matter how far away they were from each other or where life has taken them, they stuck together. Dana and Collin bring out the best in each other and the word is a better, brighter place because of it.
Spring Lake Manor has never looked so good or partied so hard. With the stunning floral center pieces and delicious looking donut tower, it was the most beautiful way to start this next chapter in their lives together. As we danced the night away, I saw the way Collin and Dana looked at each other and I knew, after all this time and all the craziness that has happened in the past year and a half, these two lovely souls were finally exactly where they were supposed to be, married to one another, shining even brighter.
Dana and Collin, thank you for being the two of the coolest, most confident awesome individuals I could ever meet. My world is better because of you. Cheers to 120 more years of happiness.
