Carina and Andy Pope met 15 years ago, when Carina started working at the same place as Andy. They instantly hit it off and after 7 years together, were married. Life hasn’t been easy for the pair, but they fought through it all with courage, determination and the mantra: Live, Laugh, Love.
Today, we celebrated 8 years of marriage and gave a special cheer to their wonderful Children, who through every trial and tribulation showed strength and helped pull each other through as a family.
Their ceremony was a perfect reflection of them as a family – relaxed, happy and personal. The children read a poem all about what family means to them, and little Abby sang ‘Come Home Perry’ to end the ceremony. Here’s the poem the children read, it was so perfect:
That’s What Family Is All About
When you’ve got a family like mine,
You surely would not mind
They would cheer you on at any game,
All the way until you walk through the hall of fame.
They make you feel better when you are blue
And whisper in your ear, I love you
They would teach you something new everyday
And help you find success in everyway
They attend to your everyday needs
Whether it is buying pencils or beads
They make sure you are comfortable where you are
Whether you are in a house or a car
They would not let obstacles keep you down
And create a smile from your frown
They teach you wrong from right
And encourage you to keep your dreams in sight
They wipe your tears away when you are sad
And calm you down when you get mad
Thank you family for all that you do
I don’t know where I would be if it weren’t for you
A very special day, for very special people.
Congratulations on your renewal of vows Carina and Andy!
