I pulled up to the tiny lakeside town of Sheboygan, Wisconsin on a rainy morning in October. I was a bit early so I stopped at a quaint family-owned coffee shop to have a snack before I began my coverage. There, I listened to older people chat about the weather, growing families, and football. games. Sheboygan is the type of town that I felt at home in from the minute I crossed the border. This wedding reminded me that I am a Midwest girl through and through.
Staci booked me for her wedding about a year ago and since then, we had been chatting and keeping up to date with each other’s lives through Facebook.She is a NICU nurse and just the type of person even the most protective of parents would pass their child to, even when she is out of the hospital and her scrubs are off. When I stepped into her house, it felt like reuniting with an old friend, rather than meeting in person for the first time.
I think my favorite part of this wedding was how Josh’s eyes truly lite up when he looked at his bride. That is a cheesy saying and you hear people say things like this all the time, but his happiness just makes him glow when Staci is near. His affection for her is pure and I can’t help but imagine the years passing and that glow never fading when Staci is near.
While working on this post, I was watching the Chicago Cubs win the World Series.
