A surprise winter wedding.
Cindy and Patrick met on Facebook. Well, kind of.
Patrick's family and our family have many, many connections.
Cindy and Pat went to the same high school and had many of the same friends.
Pat worked for my brother in law up in Minoqua when he was a teen.
Our twins, Janice and Janet, were friends with Pat's sister Tracy.
One day Pat started writing witty comments on Cindy's Facebook wall.
Slowly they became friends and eventually they met in real life.
And once they met in real life.
They both knew it was something very special.
The real deal.
The distance between Columbia and Wausau was just too much so Cindy moved to Wausau.
Last night in Wausau, during Pat's family's annual Christmas gathering, they surprised the guests with a wedding.
We knew and my sister Nancy knew...and Cindy's sons knew. They had to get us all there some how.
But, Oh! how much fun they had trying to keep it all quiet and get everyone there on time.
(The pastor could come at 6:00 and only stay for a short time.)
Yes. I knit these for Cindy. A long time ago.
This was Cindy's most important detail. Her wedding cake.
She saw something like this on Pinterest.
The service was beautiful. Wonderful verses from the Bible.
A dear pastor who knows Pat and Cindy's story.
And so much love.
God bless you Pat and Cindy!
...as long as you both shall live.
