Joe and Schenley

August 23rd, 2008....

It was March of 2004 and one of my good friends swore that her boyfriend's room mate was the right guy for me. So, after talking for a bit Joe and I went on our first date. We played pool and went for a walk around the town at our college, Bloomsburg University. We realized we had similiar personalites and liked some of the same music. After a few dates, we became a couple. My friend knew what she was talking about!

After graduating in 2005, Joe and I were each still living at home with our parents and seeing each other on the weekends. We lived about an hour and a half from each other. It wasn't easy, but we made it work. In late 2006 we began talking about me moving to his area and getting a house together. After lots of searching, we found the perfect old farmhouse to fix up with room for our donkey to run! We moved into our house in August of 2007. After dating for about 3 1/2 years, Joe proposed to me in October of 2007 while we were camping underneath the stars. It couldn't have been a more perfect place to do it.

Our wedding day was August 23, 2008 and it was a beautiful warm and and sunny day for our outside wedding. I was really nervous walking down that aisle, but as soon as I saw Joe smiling and waiting for me all the nervousness went away. Even when our unity candles would not light because it was so windy, we both just laughed it off, pretended to light them and continued with the ceremony. The rest of our night was spent dancing and celebrating with all of our wonderful family and friends. It was definitely the happiest day of our lives!
