Marty and Candice Schmidt have been married for 21 years, and they have an adorable adopted son named Caleb. Marty is an active duty Army Major who has been serving the country for the past 25 years. They have been through 8 tours and 9 duty stations together, and Candice says they are the best of friends.

Candice looked classic as Marilyn Monroe, and the couple couldn’t stop laughing and smiling. Their scenic countryside vineyard anniversary was one to remember as they renewed their vows. The ivory and cool-toned greens were a perfect combo for this couple.

We thank Candice and Marty for their many years of service for our country, and we’re so happy to share their story!
