It seems to me that love is the most organic thing we do. Love however, for the long term is not a feeling but instead a choice. Unconditional love requires patience, kindness, forgiveness and grace. It takes our willing effort and time to nurture and explore the possibilities of love.
Marriage is a huge part of committing to that love for so many of us. It is more than just a long-running tradition to get married to the person you want to be with for the rest of your life. It is a personal moment and a statement between partners that without a doubt you both intend to cultivate your love and put the needs of each other before all else. Because marriage is truly a gigantic gesture of faith and loyalty which is why we share this moment with our closest family and friends as a witness to our commitment.

“We have always been in the Soo, I wanted to stay close to my family and build a life here around them. It’s a small town and I feel like the atmosphere of this store really suits being downtown.
I didn’t want it to seem like a box store. I wanted it to be a more intimate experience.” – Amanda Carchidi
