They always say you find “the one” when you least expect it. Rob and I met in 2009 in Iowa City, Iowa, at a karaoke bar. After I sang my heart out, Rob asked for my number and, as they say, the rest is history! Rob proposed on March 31, 2013, with a beautiful and sentimental ring. The diamonds in it came from the wedding rings of Rob’s grandmother and my great aunt. It is a beautiful symbol of bringing together two families.
The biggest challenge in planning our wedding was living in Texas and planning it in my hometown of La Crosse. Thanks to the help of Nancy Flottmeyer, PBC™, of Weddings by Nancy, and my mom, our dream wedding happened.
Couples always hope for perfect weather on their wedding day. When ours rolled around, it brought a torrential downpour, but the weather didn’t bother us one bit. If anything, it made the day even more memorable! The first time Rob and I saw each other was when I was walking down the aisle with my dad. At that moment, we locked eyes and had the biggest smiles on our faces.
Our reception was at The Pump House Regional Arts Center. The décor was perfect, The Waterfront-catered food was delicious, and DJ Kelly Wilde kept the dancing going late into the evening. My dad made a video slide show with pictures of Rob and me as children and then together as a couple. We will always treasure this video. Later, in front of all of our guests, Rob played guitar and sang a song he wrote to me. We kept our wedding small and intimate, inviting family and close friends.
We truly had the perfect day surrounded by people who hold a special place in our hearts. It was a day we will treasure the rest of our lives. TWM
