It was a chilly night in Montréal, 33 years ago when their paths first crossed. In a dimly lit bar, amidst laughter and clinking glasses, Nancy and Francis’s story began. Little did they know that this seemingly ordinary meeting would set the stage for a love story that would endure for decades to come.
Nancy vividly remembers that night, but for Francis, it was a different story. “I did not remember her perfectly,” he admits. However, fate had other plans. A mutual friend sang Nancy’s praises, assuring Francis that she was a remarkable woman. With that nudge from destiny and the encouragement of a trusted friend, Francis decided to give it a shot and reached out to Nancy.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Fast forward to 25 years ago, and we find ourselves at a pivotal moment in their journey. The proposal. Nancy and Francis describe it as a “commun decision.” It wasn’t about grand gestures or elaborate plans; it was a heartfelt commitment made by two people deeply in love. No down-on-one-knee moment could have captured the essence of their bond better.
When asked about the one thing they love most about each other, their faces light up with affection. “An integral, generous person who has a heart for the well-being of her family,” Francis says, gazing at Nancy. “It is a rare pearl with whom I have the pleasure to share my life for 25 years.”
Their choice of a song for the ceremony reflects the timeless quality of their love – “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley. As they stand before their loved ones to exchange vows, this melody will echo the sentiment that has bound them together through the years.
And what about the rings? The answer is a resounding “Yes.” Simple and elegant, their rings will symbolize the enduring circle of their love, a love that has withstood the test of time.
As for the officiant’s question about objections, Nancy and Francis are open to it. They believe that love should be celebrated openly, with any concerns addressed honestly and sincerely.
Their wedding ceremony will be an intimate affair. No flower girls, no ring bearers, no bridesmaids, and no groomsmen – just Nancy and Francis, standing together as they have for the past 25 years.
However, their love story will be enriched by special readings from two wedding guests who hold a special place in their hearts. Love poems and heartfelt statements will add a personal touch to an already deeply meaningful day.
Finally, as Nancy walks down the aisle, she won’t be alone. She will be escorted by her two beloved sons, a testament to the love and unity that Nancy and Francis have built together over the years.
In just a few short moments, Nancy and Francis will reaffirm their love and commitment to one another. Their journey began in a bar in Montréal, but it has led them here, to this moment, surrounded by loved ones and cherished memories, as they embark on the next chapter of their incredible love story.
