Taylor & Charlie

November 1, 2018

“We would not have had the wedding of our dreams without the help of the Pay it Forward wedding giveaway. Charlie and I are overwhelmingly humbled and equally grateful to have been selected for this gift.”

“One year ago, we had just lost Charlie’s dad, and were one week away from losing my own dad. In the darkness of the last 12 months, we never could have imagined that one year later, we would be here living the wedding of our dreams with our friends and families. We have certainly done nothing to earn or deserve this in any way, but we can’t express how thankful we are to the couple who started this Pay it Forward wedding, the Bodenheimers, and to all the vendors involved in making our literal dream come true.

Taylor and Bobby from The Barn at Royal Gait, Christi at Above and Beyond Catering, Summer from Coordinated Events, Ashley Stone Photography, Angela from Babycakes Gourmet, Joey from Tiger Paw Entertainment, Flowers by Neil, Winslow Custom Designs, Dawn’s Bridal, and TriadWeddings Magazine. Thank you for your immeasurable generosity, and for giving your time and talent to make this beautiful wedding happen in just six weeks. We never could have done any of this on our own. Words can’t express our appreciation; we only hope it can be seen in this experience. And, of course we are grateful to our families for sharing in this absolute fairytale with us. They have gone through the loss of the last year right alongside us, so really this is a celebration for all of us. This has been the most incredible and joyous way to close a hard year and start a new one, with gratitude, generosity, and resilience. One day we hope to be able to pay it forward as well.” ~ Taylor
