In 1957, it cost 6 cents to ride the Dentzel Carousel at Ontario Beach State Park.
Tony only had 5 cents. At least that's what he told Sandy when he asked her for a penny.
Talk about the perfect plan to meet a girl and ask her out.
The rest is history. Their history.
55 years later, Tony and Sandy returned to the scene of the crime, to relive the day they first met.
I was honored to be called to help them commemorate this time of their lives. We met at the carousel last week, and within minutes, their stories and lots of laughter began flowing between us.
It was also fun to get to take a turn on the carousel with them!
Their story reminded me that getting married, isn't just about the wedding day. It's about the years that follow.
Through the ups, downs, twists and turns...
55 years later, Tony and Sandy still remember that day.
