Message to the Bride & Groom - Concrete Canoe

Who would have thought, back in 2009 when you first met through the Concrete Canoe team, that you would be standing here today becoming husband and wife? 

Now there are a TON of jokes that can be made for a relationship that started by building a concrete canoe. In fact, many married couples will tell you that marriage itself can sometimes seem a bit like a concrete canoe. It’s an improbable idea that’s impossible to create…yet if you find a way to make it happen, it’s incredible to see something impossible magically happen

When Julie first saw Corey on the team, her very first thought was ‘Oh man, he needs a haircut!’. Corey’s first thought was that she’d be a HUGE help paddling the concrete canoe. But, first impressions aside, working on the concrete canoe team somehow, magically, brought them together. 

Their first date was just a few months later in May of 2009 – dinner on State St. followed by a walk around downtown Madison. That was the day that they both began to realize that they were indeed meant to be together.

Julie eventually realized that Corey is her best friend and he is the one person in the world that she wants to share her life with. She wants to commit the rest of her life to him and to the family that they will create. Corey eventually realized that the only person he wanted walking with him and taking on the challenges of life with him is Julie. He began to see that no matter what happens, Julie makes him feel warm and wanted and he found himself willing to do anything to keep a smile on her face. Julie makes him want to be a better person and he couldn’t wait to marry her. So, on Labor Day Weekend in 2011, Corey asked…and Julie said yes.

And that brings us to today, as you stand here ready to take each other as husband and wife. Until today, the two of you have been on separate paths. They wandered separately – sometimes converging, sometimes separating, and you were always free to choose your own path. After today, your paths become one and you must now walk this new path together.

Nobody can tell you what you’ll find on this new path that you travel together. It may bring you two or three kids or maybe even a couple of dogs. In a few years, you may find yourselves living somewhere in Milwaukee with two or three kids and a couple of dogs.

It will probably bring you many more stores with Corey saying ‘it’s something where’ and Julie making fun of him for saying the same thing over and over when he tries to explain things.

Years down the road, you may find yourselves helping your children choose their college and eventually …encouraging…them to join them Concrete Canoe Team like their parents.

But no matter what life brings your way as you travel this new path together, you will spend life traveling it together.
