Whenever Ifong Chen Photography makes an appearance on Apple Brides, you know it’s going to be good. This is Julia and Alan’s wedding at the Scharelant Retreat House in Coeur d’ Alene, everything about this wedding is beautiful from the photography, the couple, the setting to the love story. Here is the adorable story from Julia…
“Once upon a time . . .
There was a guy named Alan who joined the Air Force and moved to a far-away cold land called North Dakota. There he met a girl named Julia who had also been sent to North Dakota by the Air Force, and he decided he wanted to be friends with her. But Julia thought that Alan was not the type of guy that she wanted to be friends with, so she blew him off. But fortunately for the purposes of this story, Alan thought she wanted to be friends, happened to think she was interesting – if a little rude – and continued to talk to Julia whenever he saw her. Eventually, Alan’s persistence paid off and she began to thaw in her feelings toward him, and months later after writing Julia many letters from overseas while he was deployed, they became real friends, then they became more then friends and fell in love, and eventually got married and started living happily ever after.
Not The End.”
