Natalie and Troy’s story is the kind that reminds you of the incredible power of love. The apostle Paul tells us that “love never ends” as he espouses the incredible virtues of love. Troy and Natalie’s love manifest his words. They were first married years ago, had a daughter and life got messy (as it often does). They divorced 5 years ago, but remained friends and co-parents to their daughter. Over the years they realized the depth of their friendship and the strength of their love. They discovered that marriage isn’t a fairytale. It is a partnership, a friendship, and a commitment. Their love was always there, they just needed some time to get it right.
They finally realized what they were dreaming about was right before their eyes. So they took a trip from their home in Texas and returned to Laguna Beach where they were first married to say “I do” again.
In fact, moments before their ceremony they surprised their daughter with the news that they would wed! She, and Troy’s older daughter were handed bouquets and the wedding began!
So, at sunset, with the waves crashing against the rocks behind them, sand in toes, and joy in their hearts, they married again. It was a lovely private ceremony with their family at the waters edge.
