I got a call from a groom in Kansas City, MO, and he wanted to book me. I could tell from the voice, he wasn't the typical 20-something groom. Quite the opposite. After talking with him for a bit, I was quite touched (some would say I'm touched anyway). He's 60 and she's 55. They met over 35 years ago when he was stationed in Italy with the Navy. Shortly after they met, they fell in love and he asked her to marry him. But, he got cold feet and took off. He said it was the biggest mistake of his life. He came back to America, and she stayed Italy. He began to write to her, begging for forgiveness. The love never waned, even though he left. Finally, after 35 years of being engaged, they decided it was time to tie the knot.
I don't know about you, but I love these types of stories. I feel honored that they selected me to DJ their ceremony the reception. They actually got my name from the venue.
