Hop, Skip, & a Wedding Pt.1: The Fairy Tale of Love

Cuffing season is here and most are looking for some variations of cuddling, while others are getting hooked up and hitched. With divorce and co-habitation rates as they are, the institute of marriage doesn’t seem more sacred than a piece of overpriced wedding cake. Adding to that cynicism is the death of the fairytale love that we were all lied to about via cartoon princesses; these days it seems that everyone is just better off alone.  However like any fairytale hero,  some are the exception to the cultural standard and those heroes give us hope in finding that special eternal one.

These three couples are the exception to what we believe is ‘normal’ when working your way up to the big M and have shared their stories and opinions of how they obtained and maintain the ‘fairytale love’.


Timothy & Chalon (Engaged) Timothy and Chalon met in church upon the introduction of a friend. They were both well involved in their respective ministries, while love was on the back burner. Upon their introduction it seemed that all of their wants,needs, and desires were met. Just four months of love and soul searching Timothy popped the big question and they are set to wed in February 2015.

Timmothy & Chalon (Engaged) Timmothy and Chalon met in church upon the introduction of a friend. They were both well involved in their respective ministries, while love was on the back burner. Upon their introduction it seemed that all of their wants,needs, and desires were met. Just four months of love and soul searching Timothy popped the big question and they are set to wed in February 2015.

Does ‘The One’ exist?

Timmothy & Chalon: [As a culture] we believe there is an ONLY one. The one you were supposed to meet as a teenager. The one  who was there for you in your twenties. And the one destined to hold your hand in the next phase of your life.  If you’re blessed you will experience all of your ‘ones’ in one special person and have a lifelong teacher to transition with you through life. It’s nice to have the consistency of a singular teacher to ‘do life’ with. But in the end my fiance and I were happy to have ‘the ones’ to prepare us for the next one and we are better as a result of it.

Ezra & Victoria: I don’t believe in “the one.” I think that idea is really just fed to us as children and we continue on with this idea that in a world of billions of people there is only one that can make us happy. That very notion is false, but what I do believe is that when you genuinely take the time to love someone you’ll be patient. You won’t like everything, there will always be a habit that you don’t like or agree with. For instance, when we first met she stated she could never date someone that smoked. She still married me and a few years later I quit smoking.

Wayne & LaNette: I’m not sure if I believe in what people would say “the one” however I do believe there is a such thing as having or finding a soul mate. For me a soul mate is a person that you are thinking about happens to call while you are thinking about them.
