“Having perfected our disguise, we spend our lives searching for someone we don’t fool.” – Robert Brault
Marcus tried to scare people off and his last tactic was his handlebar moustache. Fortunately, Amanda saw who Marcus really was. She not only loved what he so carefully hid, but created a safe haven for him in which to show it. As their relationship grew, they developed the sort of deep connection most can only dream of, a blending of two persons moving forward in unison. This is marked in the film when Marcus said, “I guess we’ll just move forward” as he confidently held Amanda’s hand.
On this, their wedding day, their words to each other attest to their deep and mutual attachment. “Thank you for being my biggest cheerleader”, Amanda expressed. “I have been in the right place at the right time”, Marcus humbly stated. A friend conveyed the same in his own words, “She makes Marcus want to be a better guy, that’s how you know something is true”. One of the most poignant statements expressed by a close friend was, “Lovers don’t finally meet some where, they’re in each other all along”. For Marcus and Amanda, disguises aside, they discovered they were part of each other all the while.
The D. Jones Wedding team is honored to present, Amanda and Marcus.
