Love is in the air at Summit Estates Senior Living. Residents Holly Wilson, 88, and Ron Dohoney, 78, said “I do” during a quaint afternoon wedding ceremony in the senior living community’s courtyard on June 23, surrounded by family, friends, fellow residents and staff.

“It's never too late to find love or a companion,” said Ron. The couple met in the dining room at Summit Estates and friendship bloomed into love while taking walks around the community and enjoying countless date nights.

“There isn't a moment that goes by that you don't see Ron and Holly walking and holding hands,” said Teri Gooch, Director of Life Enrichment. “You always see Ron giving her a kiss or the glimmer of love in Holly's eyes as she looks up at him."

Summit Estates team members took care of the details: the delivery of fresh flowers and delicious desserts prepared by the community’s chef, Zareen Gul. The couple’s favorite restaurant, The Twisted Fork in Reno, presented them with a bottle of Twisted Chardonnay, signed by management, and a gift certificate.

Following the nuptials, guests enjoyed a beautiful reception and, later, the couple left for a romantic honeymoon at the Atlantis Hotel and Casino. The newlyweds said they are thankful for the beautiful future that awaits them and they plan to continue living at Summit Estates Senior Living, where it all started.
