I am asking for any help possible to pay for my wedding to the man of my dreams. I know that sounds like every other story out there, but ours is a little different.
Bobby and I met back in 2013 on Match.com, a little taboo, but not so much anymore. It was unconventional for us, but it ended up working out really well. We had our first date on April 23, 2013 and "drinks" turned into almost 12 hours of talking and getting to know each other. We related and differed on so many topics that the conversation never lulled or lost it's sparkle, but the topic that we found the most comfort in sharing with each other was, ironically enough, the fact that we had both lost our fathers unexpectedly. I lost mine when I was 15 years old and he lost his shortly before we met. Upon finding out that I had already gone through what he was going through right then allowed him to open up to me, and I to him. We talked for hours about what it felt like to have such a prominent part of your life ripped away so suddenly and unexpectedly. We helped each other heal in ways that we had never been able to before and when Bobby, himself, framed the last painting that my Father ever did for me on my birthday that year, I knew he was the man I was going to marry. He took me to spread my Father's ashes on top of the highest mountain in the state of Georgia, overlooking every inch of the state and brought all of that full circle 2 years later by proposing in the very same location. This man is my prince charming and has rescued me from my dark past.
The reason I am asking for help is not because we are so wonderful, or because we tragically lost our father's unexpectedly, but for our Mothers. They mean the world to both of us and want nothing more than for us to have the wedding of our dreams and due to financial hardships that have fallen on both of them as a result of our Father's passing, we are all relying heavily on whatever we can scrape together to pay for everything. I want nothing more than to give this to all of them, each and every one of them deserve for this day of union to be perfect, special and infinitely memorable. So, as the bride, I am asking for help to give my family the wedding of our dreams and not have to worry about the details financially.
Thank you infinitely for anything that is donated. You are helping to make so many dreams come true.
