For years and years the bride and groom had known each other. They worked together, she at his company, and slowly became friends. Throughout the years they would see each other as life progressed, one in one relationship, then the other in another. Never themselves considering each other, not that the timing was ever right, anyway. Until one day, that is, when it suddenly was. They looked at each other, both single at the same time. Both with the experience of their solid relationship built on trust and an unwavering friendship behind them. “What were they waiting for?” they wondered. They suddenly had each other. They seized the moment.
Very much like how the sun was able to briefly shine between the layers of cloud, this couple had their brief moment in time to act so they did. Mike enjoyed a cliff-top coffee with the couple after the ceremony where he learned their full story, and they soon found themselves back standing in the drizzle, completely shrouded in a cloud. Their moment well taken and behind them now. And as a result, ahead of them a future together chock full of promise and possibility. All thanks to a break in the weather, so to speak.
Congratulations Alvin and Cheri. We wish you the very best and that you’re able to always find that thin layer of perfection.
