I met Terry when a mutual friend introduced us. Over 23 years, our paths crossed many times until we found ourselves alone but 325 miles apart. Finally, he called and wanted to take me to dinner when he was in town. Our first date was at Digger’s Sting in La Crosse. After, we stayed in touch, exchanging stories and memories of the past. One day, Terry told me to get dressed up and pick a great restaurant for our date. We went to Seasons on the Lake in Onalaska. After ordering dinner, Terry got down on his knee and asked me to marry him.
Planning our wedding was a challenge due to the distance between us. However, we chose the Days Inn, French Island as the reception venue. We made arrangements for the rehearsal dinner and gift opening there as well. Then, one sunny afternoon, we found ourselves at The Wedding Tree. The staff treated me like the most important bride that walked through the door, and we bought all dresses there. The planning continued with the selection of floral and the wedding cakes. Twenty-three different flavors of cakes became the centerpieces of our tables. We wanted to encourage guests to pick up a dessert plate, socialize, and locate their favorite flavor of cake. The guests were amazed at the people they met. It was a great ice breaker.
The morning of the wedding, the bridesmaids had their hair done and arrived at church looking beautiful. Pics by Mike Photography had started our photos at rehearsal the night before, and he was at the church when we arrived. Mike was very attentive to our needs, and it went smoothly. We had more than 800 photos from which to choose. It was very hard to narrow the selection. A few guests couldn’t attend our wedding, so we also had it videotaped. After all the events were over, we began our new lives together. TWM
