Drew and Gina tied the knot back in 2010. It was a beautiful vintage-inspired wedding that was held in Scottsdale, Arizona. Of course, they were with their parents throughout the whole celebration and in fact, they can’t wait for the day their parents would actually see them say their vows.
The wedding officiant, Father Jim Husek began to speak about lasting love and marriage during the wedding. He also said that it is hard to find true love and it’s basically something a lot of people can’t seem to find.
At the time of the wedding, Drew’s parents have been together for 34 years already while Gina’s were celebrating their 38th years of marriage. Because of their long and lasting marriage, Father Jim said that it was their parents who have created the foundation that would help their kids create a strong commitment to their soon-to-be spouses. They were the role models Drew and Gina had.
However, before the couple was able to solidify their vows and be called husband and wife, Father Jim did something entirely unexpected.
“If you don’t mind standing a bit to the side,” Father Jim told Gina and Drew. “This is going to be for the parents.”
Both the parents of Gina and Drew definitely has no idea why there were suddenly the center of attention and were being asked to stand up from their seats. Apart from that, they also didn’t know that the bride and groom were in on the surprise. Even Father Jim, who has been officiating weddings for a long time admitted that he haven’t seen anything like that before.
For Gina, the wedding was one of the most memorable days of her life, especially the surprise and their parents’ reactions.
The unexpected surprise happened after Father Jim had the bride and groom stand on the side and the parents of both Gina and Drew stand up. They were asked how many years they have been together and after that, revealed that they would be renewing their vows on that same day.
The married couples said they would renew their vows and this delighted Father Jim. According to him, he knew that they would agree as soon as he have met them that day. For the priest, he saw them as having beautiful spirits. And then, they were urged to go to the center.
Both couples renewed their vows as Drew and Gina said theirs on the same day. If that isn’t love, we don’t know what love would be.
