I am in the business of love.  I have the honor of witnessing one of the most intimate times in a couples journey together, where they promise to love each other for eternity.  Every wedding I plan and coordinate is a reminder of my own wedding day, nearly ten years ago.  As a newlywed, I used to ask couples who had been married for 20, 30, 40+ years, What’s the secret to lasting love and a great marriage? and all their answers where mostly the same:  Action.  Actively romancing, actively forgiving, actively dating, actively anticipating the others needs.  And now that Mark and I are nearing a significant milestone, with our first decade of marriage under our belts, we see how true and important this advice was.

Love is a verb.
