Gina and Edward’s fireworks began with… fireworks! They had both completed the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, GA when they struck up a conversation that started at the finish line, lasted for hours, and ended in starry eyes.
“The finish line was just the start
I saw fireworks
I had starry eyes.”
Both G&E love to dance and Gina told Edward that she would secretly *love* to be proposed to via flash mob — a surprise crowd dance — and Edward told her that was unlikely to happen.. Fast forward to a flash mob he helped coordinate at a Big Fake Wedding event that ended with a surprise proposal!
“When I looked up, they were pointing at us
And you know I wept at the sweet surprise you kept.”
They celebrated with their own (real) wedding in April 2015, and when I talked to them this winter, Edward shared the sweetest sentiment that ultimately inspired their Melody. He wrote, “It’s crazy but I love my wife more and more everyday. More than I did yesterday and our love for each continues to grow. I thought I loved her as my girlfriend but then she became my fiance. I thought I loved her as my fiance but then she became my wife. I love her more than I ever have and will continue to love her unconditionally like Jesus loved us. I’m sure I will love her even more when she becomes a mother.” *tear* ALL THE FEELS RIGHT?!
“More and more
I will love you”
Not only are they the sweetest souls, G&E also have a mighty fun side. They happen to share a favorite band in Boyz II Men and that made my job OH-SO-FUN. We pounded out a contemporary R&B flavored track featuring that riff-y main vocal with sassy layers of background vocals and LOVE the way it turned out! Their first dance at The Biggest Fake Wedding in Atlanta as the model couple was the first time they heard their finished Melody. And we got to witness it too!
So, in life’s beautiful full circle way, we were privileged to watch Gina and Edward enjoy their first dance at their second marriage (to each other!) and their third wedding to a custom love song from MelodyWed. What a treat to get to know this darling couple and to witness their love in action through a gorgeous event last week. May this be just the beginning of a glorious journey through life together, you two!
What does YOUR love sound like?
