When you’ve met the right one, you just know.
It feels so right, the way your personalities fit together just as your hands intertwine like connecting puzzle pieces. And that’s exactly how Noel felt after her first date with Dirk. Two, three, four dates later they both knew that this was the real deal.
They met in North Carolina. She there for school and he there for work. They shared a passion for the great outdoors, Mountains, Rivers, and a dog named Manfred. But it was a love for National Parks in particular that would bring them to the West. There was something about the picturesque landscapes and sky-high trees that made their hearts soar. Together they made a goal to travel to one National Park every weekend.
So, it was just another weekend and another park to check off the list. With Noel’s parents in town, Glacier National Park in Montana was on the agenda and the group couldn’t have been more excited for the day. Sun shining, and birds singing, little did Noel know, Dirk had a few other tasks on their agenda for the day. After some hiking and sight-seeing, Dirk came across the perfect location and the perfect time to pop the question. Surrounded by all of gods perfect beauty, birdsong, wildflowers, and the towering Rocky Mountains, Dirk got down on one knee and asked Noel to be his wife.
Noel of course said yes!
Noel and Dirk married beneath towering mountains and celebrated their union with family and friends surrounded by drifting cotton and dappled sunlight.
The Wedding Tree in Bridger-Teton National Forest was the perfect ceremony location. They held hands under swaying trees and promised to always support and love each other. Family and friends cheered, Manfred jumped, and Noel and Dirk said I Do.
Noel & Dirk,
Thank you so much for inviting me to spend this day with you! It was truly a beautiful celebration full of love and laughter, perfect for two beautiful, kind, and generous people. Together you two can conquer the world, and I have no doubt you are leaving it in a better place as you build your lives together.
Love and appreciation, ~M
