When Betsy contacted me in September to officiate their wedding, she explained that she and David were both divorced and had known each other since 7th grade! Seems they had grown up and gone their separate ways but met again at their 30th high school class reunion and both of them "instantly felt at home." David still lives in West Virginia where they grew up. He owns a business and is also a river raft guide down the beautiful Gauley and New Rivers in W.VA. Betsy is a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner in South Carolina. She will be spending the month of December moving to W.VA and starting a new job in January. They chose to meet in the middle for their wedding at Betsy's brother's house in the Oak Park area of Raleigh. They were so excited and so happy to have re-discovered each other after all those years.
Betsy put a beautiful lei of green leaves around David's neck.
Now for the beautiful rings they exchanged.
David is just towering over Betsy and me! What a gentle giant he is. Betsy and David, aloha to you and I wish you all the happiness and love in the world! I am so happy you found each other again!
