Trust the Timing of Your Life.
Where true love is concerned there is no greater force than destiny. Jonathan and Diana’s “meet cute” took place while playing ping-pong in Chautauqua, New York where both of their families have enjoyed annual summer getaways for many years. Diana was supposed to be dancing in Seattle but an injury put her in Chautauqua to recuperate. The two felt a spark instantly and spent the remainder of their vacation creating excuses to see each other. Diana was dreading the end of the vacation fearing she would never see Jonathan again. She was headed off to school in Toronto and he was returning home to Dallas. Timing and distance were never in their favor for the next four years, but nevertheless their long distance relationship continued. Then all changed when Diana was accepted in the company of the Texas Ballet Theater, a dance company based in Dallas. The rest is history….
The Wedding: “Dianathan”
Diana was one of the calmest and poised brides we have encountered at Gruber. Her gentle way of carrying herself put her family, bridal party and guests at ease. She promised herself that she would not let the stress of the day rule or rush her and would experience and savor every delicious moment of her wedding day.
There was a very moving moment at the St Regis Hotel when Diana was standing alone studying the woman she didn’t recognize reflected in the mirror of the Tiffany Suite. She continued her stare, took two deep yoga breaths, then cracked a smile of pure joy, smoothed out her wedding dress and never stopped smiling all day. It was just a transformative moment but one so moving and so Diana.
