Always Have A Rain Plan
The original plan was to have the ceremony outside by the pond, but 24 hours before the wedding the forecast was very iffy to say the least. Because of this, the decision was made to go with the rain plan and have the ceremony inside the dining room. It’s a good thing, because during the time of the ceremony it was raining buckets outside.

How does a girl from Fredericksburg, Virginia who is the oldest of 6, meet a boy from Philadelphia who is the baby of 7? Naturally, they meet in Naples, Florida! They had their first date on April 22, 2014 at Miller’s ale House. And even though it was love at first sight…they didn’t get engaged until about a year and a half later.
And before they could get engaged….Dennis had to muster up the nerve to call Elizabeth’s parents and ask for their blessing.
Which they granted.
So…in their apartment, with their only witness being their fur baby, Franklin….who is a miniature schnauzer….Dennis popped the question on November 14, 2015.
These two truly compliment each other…Dennis is neat and tidy…while Elizabeth admits that she is a little messy and unorganized. Elizabeth knows lots of random useless trivia facts…while Dennis has street smarts and common sense. She is emotional, boisterous and loud while Dennis is calm and more reserved.
But at the end of the day, they balance each other out, and bring out the best in each other…unless, of course… they begin debating whose sports teams are the best.
He loves the Philadelphia Eagles…and her heart is with the Washington Redskins.
Dennis loves the Phillies and Elizabeth is a die-hard Yankees fan.
Of course, they both agree on their mutual love of the Penn State Nittany Lions.
They love good food and laughter, and now on the three year anniversary of their first date…in front of their family and friends…they are beginning a new chapter in their lives….and now it’s time for their first dance as husband and wife
