He’s a reserved Engineering professor and She’s a lively graphic designer and owner of Veronica Marché Illustration and Design. Together they make the perfect duo! Earlier this month I was reunited with David and Veronica for their Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse wedding in Philadelphia, PA. This was the first wedding where I became so caught up in the day that laughed, laughed some more, danced, and I cried! (hot mess!). You see, the whole plan for the day was for this to be an epic afternoon wedding and party…I mean PARTY (all caps!). So how did I find myself with tears in my eyes during this party, well I blame Veronica’s dad!
Prior to the father daughter dance, Veronica’s dad grabbed the microphone and in his perfect broadcaster voice began to describe a scene from when Veronica was 2 years old. Her mom was away from home and he was there with his baby girl. He taught her the words to Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called to Say I Love You” and as he is wrapping up his story he calls Veronica over for their father-daughter dance and Stevie’s song began to play. Well, not only did Stevie’s song begin to play but you hear Veronica’s 2-year old self singing with the song!!! (Insert the waterworks for the majority of the room). Here Veronica was with her dad at her wedding dancing to a song that she was singing at 2 years old. It was such a beautiful moment!!! A few minutes later, David’s mom gave a brief intro to the mother and son dance and asked the room to be kind to her because she wasn’t much of a dancer. The next moment later she and David were dancing and so into their routine that the guests were out of their seats! Talk about a way to get the party started….ah-maz-ing!
David and Veronica, thank you so much for allowing me to document such an exciting wedding day and many blessings for a life of happiness together!
