Amy and Conor’s Dunes Club wedding was a soft grey day with threatening rain and flowing pastel silks swirling in the dunes, topped off by a brilliant explosion of color. The weather and the colors may have been ever changing but Amy and Conor were constant. That’s just how they roll. They’ve known each other since they were six. Can you imagine marrying someone who shares your entire history? What a story that will be when they are 90!
“Everyone has a friend during each stage of life. But only lucky ones have the same friend in all stages of life.”
From the moment Amy rode her bike over to the new neighbor’s house and asked six year old Conor if they wanted to be friends they’ve been on a path that led them to this day. Conor’s best man told us in his toast that every girl that came into Conor’s life was measured against the bar that Amy had set and everyone had come up short. Petite Amy with her wild curly locks and her sparkly blue eyes had a hold on his heart and that was that.
Naturally their parents, neighbors and friends were thrilled that this 20+ year courtship had finally brought them to this day! This called for something big to celebrate and they planned a fireworks display to delight the wedding guests. Storms cells were watched while Amy’s mom fretted over a possible cancellation but in the end it was meant to be, just like Amy and Conor!
