Very simply, these two met and fell in love. It was a normal day at a summer school program. Two teachers among many more. There to be helpful and hopeful for an urban ministry. It was not love at first sight, just a simple friendship that became the biggest blessing in both of their lives.
Those who know Staci and Phil know of the kindness and encouragement that follows. The wedding day was just the same. Simple, kind, and encouraging in the sweetest way. The best thing to hold onto in life is each other. These two held their families close in the celebration preparations. Having a memory table near the guest book, family recipes on the menu, remembering birthdays that weekend, taking the time to capture photos with each family group, and a family dinner before the ceremony.
