Love is in the Air at Carolina SeniorCare

July 6, 2017

Love is in the air at Carolina SeniorCare PACE, a comprehensive health care program for frail elderly in Davidson, Rowan, Davie and Iredell counties.  The ageless love stories of program participants sparked the inspiration for a Vow Renewal Ceremony held on June 22 at the PACE Day Center.

The Vow Renewal Ceremony honored the marriages of participants and their spouses by reaffirming the vows they made on their official wedding day and commemorate their life journeys together.   The service was complete with flower girls, ring bearers, a cake cutting ceremony, a first dance and a toast.  A reception followed to celebrate the occasion.

The Vow Renewal Ceremony was conducted by Misty Polston-York, Director of Spiritual Life for Carolina SeniorCare.  “With June being the month for weddings, participants began sharing stories about their weddings and many mentioned not being able to afford a ceremony,” reflected Polston-York. “Team members at Carolina SeniorCare felt moved to provide something special for these participants.  Things began to happen quickly and a wonderful Vow Renewal Ceremony was planned.”

“The Ceremony had so many special touches thanks to many supporters of Carolina SeniorCare,” shared Polston-York.  “All nine brides wore veils and wedding dresses, including beautiful flower bouquets, and all grooms sported dress suits.  A local salon volunteered to provide complimentary hair and make-up for the brides and a local bakery donated a wedding cake.”

Polston-York continued, “Many people opened their hearts to make this a special celebration. Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give. This celebration was wonderful gift for all of us at Carolina SeniorCare!”
