On September 18, 2013, Rob and Julie ended their 6 year engagement and were married in an almost private ceremony at Niagara Falls, NY.
We are grateful to God for the gift of abundant love that has been given to us, and for allowing all the plans for our elopement and wedding to be fulfilled beyond our expectations.
We were blessed with perfect weather for our wedding at 4 P.M. on a beautiful, grassy clearing, just off the path to the Horseshoe Falls overlook: sunny and 73 degrees.
The ceremony was performed by Candice Begley, who provided us with lots of valuable advance information for planning our wedding at Niagara Falls State Park. Having worked in the church for many years and participated in lots of weddings, Rob was curious about what kind of wedding ceremony she might recommend, but it turned out to be perfect for us. She also recommended photographer Harvey Huff, who rode in on a Harley, had a wonderful sense of humor, and managed to shoot lots of great photos without intruding on the ceremony. Afterwards, he took lots of additional shots by the falls. Rob’s face was sunburn red from walking around the day before, but the bride was beautiful, and it was the happiest day we’ve had together. We hope to go back again for our fifth wedding anniversary!
After finishing with the photos and saying our goodbyes to Candice and Harvey, we walked back to the parking lot, where a tour bus had just parked. The folks getting off the bus asked if we just got married, and were all shouting their happy congratulations. It was very funny and very sweet.
We took some time to relax back at the hotel before heading off for our Wedding Dinner at Savor, a restaurant at the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute, where meals are prepared by students under the training of Master Chefs. It was delicious! We were seated next to a table of five crusty old New York couples who provided a glimpse into our future!
Our wedding day exceeded all our hopes and expectations, and was by far the best Rob & Julie adventure to date!
