Dreams do come true… in God’s time!
Joycee & Ryan
Fast forward seven years later to August 2005, my truck broke down so a friend referred me to a mechanic she knew, Ray. As my truck was getting repaired, Ray was talking to me and said that my morals and values in life were the same as his co-worker and that I should meet him. I told Ray that I was not ready to get involved with anyone as I just got out of a relationship. Ray insisted I meet his co-worker and when he said Ryan’s full name, I realized that it was the same guy I dated at Red River College. Something told me that this was part of God’s plan and to take a chance. So I did and on September 21, 2007, Ryan proposed.
Our wedding was on September 20, 2008. This date is very special for 3 reasons. The first reason is obvious, this is the day that I married the love of my life, my best friend, my soul mate. The second reason is it’s my daddy’s birthday and the third and final reason is it’s my grandparents wedding anniversary.
The ceremony took place at St. Patrick’s church and the reception was held at Victoria Inn . We had roughly 540 guests. It was truly a memorable night. Dreams do come true in God’s time!!
Ryan and I first met back in 1998 at the hallways of Red River College where I was studying to be an Electronic Engineering Technologist and Ryan was studying to be a mechanic. We only dated for a very short period of time and eventually went our own separate ways. I never saw him again until….
