Cheryl & Maria
It was May 6, 2006. Being a professional DJ (www.djharmony.net) I was hired to be the DJ for two ladies by the names of Kathy & Elizabeth. It was a beautiful day in Ormond Beach, FL and everything was going along without a problem. One of the brides, Elizabeth, was very kind and asked me if she could do anything for me. I simply replied that she could introduce me to any singles that were there. She was off to play matchmaker and the antics began! This was at her own wedding too!
Elizabeth had pointed out the lady who volunteered to be the bartender for the evening and told me her name was Maria. Several guests including the two brides attempted to bring Maria down to the dance floor because the “DJ wanted to dance with her”. Maria didn’t believe them!! Finally, it was Elizabeth’s mom who marched up to the bar area, demanded that the bar was closed, and brought Maria down to the dance floor herself. Maria had actually thought everyone was kidding with her about the DJ’s interest.
Once Maria was introduced to me, I promptly asked her to dance. She danced with me the rest of the night and treated me like a lady. Because of this, we set up a first date and the rest is history.
The following year was a big birthday for Maria. I planned a surprise birthday party for her with a DVD presentation and lots of surprises at the party. The following is a quote from the DVD presentation:
“From Your Biggest Fan –
When I met Maria, she appeared to be a diamond in the rough. What I discovered when “polishing” this gem, was a genie in a bottle.
Maria, thank you for making my wish come true by just being you. You have indeed finally “Come Out Of The Dark”. This tribute has been a labor of love.”
I had put these words at the end of the DVD presentation. They were very true then and they are still true today. I will never meet anyone like Maria. She is one of a kind and I’m glad we got together.
Please come to our wedding and help us celebrate our love!!
