“I find our story beautiful. God has a way of timing things perfectly. There were a lot of bumps in the road. Ones where I almost lost who I was, but with faith, perseverance, and Tony always building me back up, we have created the perfect life together.” - Erin DiCarlo
This quote really resonated with Matt and I when we read Erin’s story a few months ago. We had so many awesome entries and, again, every love story is beautiful in its own way. But Erin and Tony’s story began 10 years ago when they went to the same high school. Their story really captured how we learn and grow together in love, and the perseverance that true love requires. Matt and I believe that God’s timing is perfect, and that is a huge part of our story as well.
Choosing a winner whose wedding was a week after the contest deadline had its challenges, but Erin and Tony made it so easy to join in their wedding festivities last minute. We loaded up our jeep that sunny February morning and headed to Houghton. We got some gorgeous drone footage of early light on the bridge and the Continental Fire Company, and captured some getting ready shots with both the bridesmaids and the groomsmen.
Erin and Tony’s wedding was complete with so many beautiful details. Antlers were incorporated into the decorations to show their love of outdoor activities. Erin looked as beautiful as could be in her lace dress with a birdcage veil, and the beautiful backdrop necklace. Their wedding party was a blast to follow around for the day. Their son, Jace was awesome! He had the best jokes and dance moves of the day, and as you can see for yourself from the intro to the video, a very sweet and heartfelt speech in front of all the guests.
It was a beautiful day and the perfect way to kick off our 2018 wedding season!
Until Next Time,
Lauren and Matt
