"Our friendship really gave us a solid foundation on which to build our relationship." This is the perspective for which Dixon Barth and Grant Hollingsworth came to be. A friendship forged by time, patience, understanding and love, leaving Dixon to share, " I will always cherish the time we spent together as friends."
Together is where Dixon and Grant wish to be and usually that togetherness takes place at their home, cuddling "on the couch with our beloved dog, Nanuk." Binge watching television, working on puzzles, drinking coffee and simply relaxing in one another's company is all these two need.
The greatest gift that time affords us allows us to see the value in the other. "I think I knew he was the one when I realized how well our personalities complement each other. I always say he grounds me and he always says that I am his encouragement."
As time does, it moves forward and with forward movement we enter new phases of our lives. And so, on October 22, 2017, Dixon and Grant entered into a union of matrimony. "It was the most intimate and perfect wedding I could have ever imagined", Dixon recalls.
Fifty of their closest loved ones shared in this intimate, eternal romance themed affair. Dixon and Grant share a love of rosemary and the simple elegance of this meaningful herb took centerstage. "Rosemary was present throughout the entire wedding, from our signature drink (Rosemary Spritz), to the invitations" as well as the wedding cake and the delicate adornment in Dixon's hair.
The moments of their wedding day were made even sweeter with the support, love and encouragement of their nearest and dearest, especially Dixon's parents. "My parents deserve most of the credit. Without them, this day would not have been the same. They helped so much and kept me grounded throughout each hiccup leading up to the wedding. The day itself went off without a hitch, and Grant and I couldn't feel more blessed."
With time, comes reflection. "The most memorable part of our wedding day was the reveal with Grant before the wedding. I was crying before he even entered the room, and as soon as he saw me he joined right in. It was so special for us to have that moment together and I will always reflect on the time we spent alone together before the ceremony with so much joy." Here's to eternity!
