Kim and Charles met through the Navy, then reconnected years later. Charles proposed as Kim was returning from a trip to Poland. “He came downstairs to help me carry my bags up. Once we entered into the apartment he greeted me with a dozen lilies, my favorite flower. Then led me up to our balcony to show me the work he had done. He had hung twinkle lights from the overhead. Then he asked me to marry him.”
90 guests were in attendance for their outdoor ceremony at ThorpeWood in Thurmont this May, including their two-person bridal party. Charles’ brother officiated the ceremony. “We chose to do a handfasting. Our vows were short and sweet and included the quote from Star Wars, ‘I love you’ ‘I know’”
The couple chose “vintage romantic garden party feel” with some “understated Star Wars” decor due to the significant sate of their wedding, May the 4th. The couple designed and created Star Warms-themed centerpieces for the reception tables and included all of our nieces and nephews into their wedding day.
Kim and Charles are both in the military and are currently live in Naples. Italy.
