Working with Kim and Rich was a DREAM! From the first contact with her, I could tell that she was so excited for her wedding. Her and Rich have both been married before and both lost their spouses. I remember Kim mentioning to me that she didn’t know if she would find someone to love again. And I’m sure that Rich felt the same way. But God brought them together in 2017 and they haven’t been apart since!
They love horse back riding, going to church and trying anything new together! I was so touched and humbled to be with them for their wedding and had many different moments with teary eyes. Rich’s dad, Mike officiated the ceremony. He was so sweet and equally funny! Told lots of jokes and got everyone laughing. But I think my favorite part was when Kim and Rich held a single red rose each and Mike explained that they wanted to honor their families in coming together for their wedding to be one family. And they did so by thanking each other’s mothers and giving them their rose. I can’t imagine some of the hardships both of these families have been through and it was beautiful to see that Kim and Rich were acknowledging where they came from and were thanking their mothers for being with them every step of the way.
Kim and Rich are so perfect together and both of their friends Renae and Dave mentioned so in their toasts to the newly married couple! Dave and Rich have known each other since grade school and Dave mentioned that no one is more loyal than Rich. He also reminded them to think about the joy they were feeling in that moment and to remember it often! Renea and Kim met in college and after being friends for many years, Renea prayed that Kim would find someone that would love her and take care of her and Rich was the answer to that prayer. Seeing this couple and the love they have for each other and for their families was beautiful. I am so grateful I was able to be even a small part of their big day! Congrats Kim and Rich!
