Meeting Your Match

So it’s a Friday night and you’re having a seat at a table for two, anxiously taking a look around, awaiting the gal you’ve been chatting with for a week. It began with the all-too-familiar wink, a quick flirtatious comment, and then, eventually, exchanging numbers. And after that it ensued: informal texting about random stuff in the day, and you found that, surprisingly, you were actually connecting with this person: making fun of her sense of humor, intrigued by her pretty face, curious about the things she had to say. And your heart began to hope that maybe this was someone who could actually be something, a diamond in the rough of online dating.

And here’s the thing: the search for love is as old as time, everyone looking for a connection with a sweetheart, someone they can confide in, share life’s road with, someone to love and hold. And more than ever before, people use dating apps to connect with others and meet up.

“Dear Hattie

Pardon the caring familiarity but you know it’s all in fun. Your charming little message has just arrived at me, and I do myself the honor to answer it immediately, thus adhering to your request to write soon.

In other words my true detail differs materially from the one therein set forth, and may not please you as well as the one “fancy painted,” but I thought it was all for fun, consequently fumingly gave a fictitious description as well as cognomen. Be it known unto you then, this individual is twenty-nine years of age, five feet and eleven inches high, dark blue eyes, brown hair, and light (ruddy) complexion. I don’t like it as well as the advertised description.”

When you go through the exact physical description this soldier provides, one is reminded of sorting fields on dating apps, being able to specify your preferences and what you want, down to physical traits you want: height, physique, hair color, etc. And that’s just the beginning of it. Religious preference, occupation, education, hobbies, books you’ve loved, exercise habits, whether you drink or smoke, and whether you have or want kids are just some of the other available sorting fields.

And the absurd thing is? It works. Sometimes. People in fact gather and take it all the way to the chapel and Pachelbel’s Canon and rose petals and all that jazz as a result of these apps. And maybe it happened for you, too. And now, you’re in the throes of wedding planning, attempting to get all your ducks in a row for the big day.

There are so many things to think about when it comes to wedding planning. Is the reception going to be in a barn or at the country club? What colors do you want? Whose works do you like enough to have them be the photographer and capture one of the most essential days of your life? Flowers? Dress style? Rehearsal dinner location? DJ for the event? And, certainly, how you plan to make the wedding party around from event to event in a seamless fashion (especially with loads of folks flying in from out of town who have no idea their way around!). Hey … we can help you there. Wedding transportation is among the things we excel at, whether you want one of our coaches for the wedding party, a bachelorette party, or to transport guests via shuttle for the reception.

You came together– whether it was today’s equivalent of that Civil War letter, or by meeting someone in a more traditional, old-fashioned encounter, we’d love to be part of how you tie the knot. Being a part of your special day is not lost on us and we want our service to reflect the significance of the occasion … for you and your guests!
