Real Bride Stories: Meet Geraldine!

April 15, 2024

Today, we’re thrilled to share the heartwarming love story and wedding journey of Geraldine Schneberger, affectionately known as Gerry. Her tale is one of faith, love, and the magic of finding that special dress. Let’s dive into Gerry’s remarkable journey from meeting her husband, Micah, to saying “I do” in a Martin Thornburg dress that made her feel like a million dollars!


Gerry’s love story with Micah began long before they realized they were meant to be. Having known each other for over two decades through their church, their paths intertwined in ways they never could have imagined. It was a mission trip to Kosova in 2007 that first brought them close, although it would take 15 years for their friendship to blossom into something more. Fast forward to 2022, both Gerry and Micah separately sought guidance from a pastor who played a pivotal role in their lives. Little did they know, their pastor had a surprise in store for them. Gerry shared her hopes and prayers for her future husband with the pastor, unknowingly describing Micah to a tee. Likewise, Micah received encouragement from the same pastor to reach out to a mystery woman, later revealed to be Gerry.


Their love story took a charming turn when Micah decided to express his feelings through a heartfelt letter, delivered by their pastor. Gerry’s excitement upon receiving the letter was palpable, and thus began their journey of texts, calls, and eventually, their first date. From shared meals to laughter-filled movie nights, their bond only grew stronger.

Then, on a picturesque day in December 2022, Micah orchestrated a proposal that would change their lives forever. By a beautiful waterfall, he nervously got down on one knee and asked Gerry to be his wife. With tears of joy, she said yes, sealing their love in a moment of pure magic.


Their wedding day was a reflection of their journey, filled with love, faith, and personal touches. Gerry’s choice of dress, our style Gwendolyn chosen from Clarice’s Bridal, was nothing short of spectacular. She customized it to her liking, adding a touch of sparkle and ensuring it felt perfect for her, especially considering her visual impairment.


Walking down the aisle to meet Micah, Gerry felt like a million dollars. The joy of wearing her dream dress was unmatched, and every moment of their special day was filled with love and laughter. Their first dance to “Go There With You” by Steven Curtis Chapman was a poignant moment chosen by Micah, symbolizing their commitment to journey through life together.


As Gerry reflects on her wedding day, her advice to other brides is simple yet profound: don’t settle for any dress. Find something you love and feel comfortable in, because that feeling is priceless. And most importantly, cherish every moment of your big day, from the heartfelt vows to the joyous dance floor celebrations.


Gerry and Micah’s love story is a testament to the power of faith, patience, and the belief that true love will always find its way. Their journey from friends to spouses is a beautiful reminder that sometimes, the best things in life are worth the wait.
