After we reached out to Nena from Vino Fiore Event's about this stunning Paso Roble's wedding on The Wedding Standard, we quickly learned how precious this day was. While the photos will have you swooning, this couple's story will leave you speechless. Nena shares with us how the day came together for this, more than, deserving bride and groom. 

From Nena: 

"It has been placed upon my heart to use my gift in some way for {the better} good. I have been praying for an opportunity, a sign, to do something to help spread joy.

Just ten days before Jan 19th I received a text from an acquaintance at church. She shared a story with me about a young couple who was looking for a new ceremony site to conduct a quick elopement. The date they needed was Jan 19th due to some of the medical treatments that were needed. After she shared with me the story of how this young couple found love for the first time and after one year of dating decided they were meant for one another. Soon after he proposed and started making plans for their big, dream wedding they found out he had cancer. Due to the severity of this cancer they had to cancel their wedding plans of getting married at a local venue that was set for mid summer, and quickly had to change plans. 

I cant explain it really, but once I was told this I knew we had to do something. I was in a position to help this deserving couple. So within 15 minutes of reaching out to local wedding vendors we had every vendor we were missing donating their services to help make this wedding happen. So amazing! 

It was the quickest wedding I have ever planned, but somehow this perfectly imperfect day was everything it was meant to be. It had been raining non-stop until the morning of Jan 19th. Clear blue sky's and a high of 70! Mid January? I mean come on! It was meant to be.
