Diana + Sue #FridayImInLove Catalyst Coupleby Angela Craft
Avon Romance is thrilled to partner with Catalyst Wedding Co. to highlight true life love stories on our page in a new feature we’re calling #FridayImInLove. Every few weeks, we will post a personal vignette, each reflecting the many beautiful, diverse ways we can find our own HEA in the real world. This week’s #CatalystCouple is Diana and Sue, who tied the knot in their own backyard after being together for 26 years!
26 years. That is how long Diana and Sue have been together. It’s a lifetime when you think about it! And I could feel that lifetime as I walked into their home in Knoxville on their snowy wedding day. Their home was filled with trinkets from a life well lived: hundreds of cookbooks lined the shelves in the kitchen, Christmas cards from the recent holiday hung on the rafters, and photos of children and grandchildren lined the hallways. Upon entrance to their home, I was quickly greeted with a shot of RumChata and Fireball and soon become one of the wedding guests (instead of the photographer). I heard stories of love, laughter, and a good bit about Star Wars from both the older and younger generations.
