A Beautiful Matrimony at Villa del Sol d'Oro in Sierra Madre

Giving you fair warning that this post is a bit more personal and a little sappy...

I've known Jess since high school when we met in our church youth group.  From there we became fast friends, initially connecting because of our high cheekbones, loud laughter and shared sense of goofy humor.  I've experienced so much of life with this beautiful woman, through hilariously traumatizing experiences studying abroad in Europe, lounging around sipping wine in her backyard, becoming her parents' 10th daughter, to eventually hearing about the first date with David up in Seattle.  Have to admit I wasn't so thrilled about the Seattle part... I wanted to keep her close by for years and years to come!  Soon enough they were engaged, and we started planning their wedding.  I became her brides-coord-maid-inator and tried really hard not to get emotional, but of course the day-of, the floodgates opened and all that wonderful makeup didn't have a chance.  It's been a few months now, and though we don't see each other as often as we'd like, I'm so grateful for our friendship and her many words of advice and support.  Praying for the fruit of the Spirit to continue to grow in you and through your relationship with David for many more years to come!
