FORT MYERS, Fla. – Two residents of Hidden Oaks Assisted Living were married this afternoon, after meeting five years ago at the facility.
Holly McCarter, 71 and Robert Stucki, 78, have both lived at Hidden Oaks since 2007. They agree that their religious beliefs were a big part of what brought them together.
“I’m so excited for this wonderful couple,” said Randy Reber, executive director of Hidden Oaks and Stucki’s best man. “The fact that they met and fell in love at this community means the world to me and our staff. Their love for each other is so evident.”
McCarter has a son and daughter with her late husband and Stucki has two sons and daughters with his late wife. Three of the five children attended the wedding.
The wedding was performed at 1:00 p.m. in the Gazebo at Hidden Oaks by Pastor Bruce Plummer. A reception followed. The couple will honeymoon in Fort Myers.
When asked about his love for McCarter, Stucki said, “Love is better the second time around. Holly is my angel.”
