A winner has been selected and we are happy to announce that Kari and Anthony will be getting married on
Here’s their story told from the groom’s point of view:
I never thought I’d meet a woman who would love me and appreciate my childish sense of humor and most of all be a fitting candidate for the hardest job in the Marine Corps, being a wife. She’d have to be strong and intelligent to take care of herself and keep our affairs in order while I’m away. She’d have to be incredibly independent to pass the time while I’m out in the field fighting or away at training. Most of all she would have to be full of love to properly share the time we have. By accident I stumbled upon this perfectly balanced combination of qualities wrapped up in the most beautiful package I’ve ever seen.
I met Kari on St. Patrick’s Day after my friends wedding in
Kari found a picture of a firefighter in his turnout gear standing next to his wife who’s in her wedding gown. This photo resembles our relationship more than I can put into words. The man willingly risking his life for others, and his love standing by his side. You know she’s scared, yet she stands by him with unwavering bravery that only he can truly appreciate.
