It was just a passing glance a couple of years ago, but I was hooked. She stood on a hill and was stunning. It was the first time I had seen Skytop Lodge in the Poconos, and I was in love. Rising over a massive property, the main building at Skytop is nothing short of majestic with its stone exterior and perfectly appointed interior.
A couple of years have passed since I first saw her. I know her a little better now thanks to Ashley and Wayne, and she has been everything I imagined. Bob and I recently visited the iconic Poconos resort for Ashley and Wayne’s wedding. We’re so grateful for being invited and being introduced to their friends and families. We had so many laughs and built so many memories with them in just the day we spent with them. It won’t be a wedding either of us will forget for a long time. A lot of times after a wedding I’ll try to think of what moment had an impact on me. They are emotional days and it’s impossible not to feel that. In Ashley and Wayne’s case, it had the be the album. Wayne had built for her a beautiful album of photos and memories that he was trying and trying and trying to give to Ashley at the reception. It took awhile. What can you do, receptions can be a good time.
It was all worth it once Ashley saw the album, though. As Wayne predicted, Ashley cried as she pored over the pages . It was such a sweet gesture and really showed how deeply in love Ashley and Wayne are. It’s a privilege to witness those moments.
As for Skytop, I’ll be seeing her again very soon.
