Military members Mark and Tanya were stationed in Spokane together for nearly a year before they met on a deployment in a location more than half-way around the world. Their serendipitous bus stop encounter and subsequent relationship are proof that everything happens for a reason and that sometimes love will find you in the most unexpected places.
Mark and Tanya bring new meaning to the idea of selfless love. Spending the majority of their relationship and now new marriage living in separate states, they rely on their ability to communicate effectively, wait patiently, and laugh often. You will rarely see the two without a smile on their faces when they are around each other. Their marriage shows the triumph of desire over discomfort and that all good things are worth waiting for.
The two are so grateful for the love and support of such an amazing group of friends and family.
“We are so excited to start this new adventure together and are looking forward to what the future has in store. So far, we’ve been very blessed.”
– Mark & Tanya
I love all my brides, but I have to say Tanya is different. Not only is she so beautiful (as Claudia Schiffer 🙂 but the grace and kindness in her made her even more lovable. I am so appreciative and honored that I was able to be part of this unforgettable event and get to know this beautiful woman, best bridesmaids, best bride’s mother, all the beautiful families and friends. Here’s some images to tell the day. Love sure is a wonderful thing to Celebrate! Ifong
