Ronda and Tony's love story began back when they were just 17 years old and they went on a date to Dairy Queen. They both ordered blizzards and it sparked a life-long relationship.
Fast forward many years, to October 4, 2015. Tony decided it was time to make it official; he planned out a fun date for them at a pumpkin patch including a hay ride, "Marry Me?" painted on a few pumpkins on a haystack and a bouquet of flowers. He dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him. Of course, she said YES!
Just three weeks ago, these two were married before God, friends, and family during a beautiful Mass ceremony in Greeley. There were tears, laughs, prayers, and the combining of two lives together. After their nuptials, they celebrated the night away with good music and much merriment at Platte River Fort.
As Tony donned his Army dress blues, jokes were cracked and the anticipation was thick. Ronda shared mimosas with her closest girlfriends and shared giggles together. When the time came and the church doors opened, Ronda locked eyes with Tony and their future. Tony fought back years and embraced his bride as her dad gave her away.
They were announced husband and wife, shared their first kiss, and were all smiles as they walked back down the aisle together. What a beautiful moment!
When asked their favorite wedding memory, Tony's response: "My favorite memory was seeing her walk down the aisle and dancing with all our friends and family." Ronda's favorite memory: "If definitely was the church ceremony. I knew how much getting married Catholic meant to Tony and to fill that connection between us and God weas breathtaking. And the little moments I got to look and talk to him in front of the alter."
These two newlyweds enjoy trying new restaurants, spending time with their little one, and want to settle down once Tony finishes his contract with the Army. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Tony for your service for our freedom. And thanks to both of you for trusting me to photograph your big day. It was beautiful, heart-felt, and one I will remember for a very long time.
