Meet Ben and Allie – a recent favorite Interfaith Couple
Have you ever met someone and just fallen in love — I did, and it’s probably not the story you’re expecting to hear. For me, it was Allie — and then Ben, and what led to an amazing relationship with this Interfaith Couple, as their wedding officiant. Let me share their story.
Ben and Allie’s love story
About a year ago I was contacted by a young woman looking for someone to officiate her Jewish-Interfaith wedding. She was originally from South Florida, and her parents live here now, and they were planning their wedding at the beautiful Addison in Boca Raton, Florida.
Ben and Allie had met in Grenada, while at Medical School. Ben helped Allie up the stairs with her luggage, and over the next 3.5 years, they would fall in love and share the most romantic love story. While studying in Medical School became their #1 priority, they fell in love over the simple things in life, and couldn’t wait to begin their lives together, post Medical School.
A logistics challenge…
But here was the problem. When I met Ben & Allie, they were in the process of matching. What if they didn’t match to the same schools? Could their love endure being in different places during such a challenging time in their lives?
As we sat together, somehow, we all knew – that everything was going to work out fine, and they would land exactly where destiny was going to take them.
Here we come, Arkansas!
Holy moly! How excited was I when I found out they both matched in Arkansas, and got a puppy?? Everything worked out so well for them – and even though we might think – HUH? ARKANSAS? I just love how Allie and Ben looked at this as such a miracle, and that life was taking all the right turns at just the right time.
The Jewish-Interfaith Wedding
I loved marrying Ben and Allie. Even though it rained and we had to go indoors, The Addison is a beautiful place to be, no matter where you have the wedding ceremony. But what really shined through was the love Allie and Ben shared, and the excitement for finally starting their lives together – IN THE SAME PLACE!
How adorable is this Interfaith couple? I couldn’t be happier to be their wedding officiant on this very special day!
Where will their love take them next?
I can’t wait to find out where Ben and Allie’s next stop on their journey will take them! I sure hope they stay in touch – and don’t wait too long till we get to welcome an adorable baby – but wish them all the best in their medical profession journeys. Love you guys!
Thanks for the memories!
