I was honored to be a part of Kathy & Arlin's wedding in Tulsa, Oklahoma, held at the historic Mayo Hotel. They have a special place in my heart, the love they share is wholehearted, and their story is beautiful...
Arlin & Kathy met 28 years ago when they were both 28 years old. They developed a friendship, worked next door to each other in downtown Tulsa, attended the same church, had children in the same daycare, and actually dedicated those children to God in church on the same Sunday in 1988. Life took them in different directions for more than 20 years, until eventually their paths were directed to the same spot where they reconnected. In Kathy's words, "Half a lifetime ago we laid a foundation for a wonderful friendship, which began to strengthen and turned into love. We are so thankful that our circumstances were turned into such a beautiful and hopeful future."
They are truly meant for each other. May the road rise up to meet you, Mr. & Mrs. Vancuren! With all my heart-- Congratulations!
