We hope you two had a fantastic, unforgettable time in Colorado and your dreams came true on your snowy wedding day. We had such a wonderful time running through Rocky Mountain National Park and braving the chilly day with (mind you, we were in winter coats, so it wasn't TOO bad for us)! ;)
During that week, we broke more than I could’ve imagined and were brought to our knees like never before. After 3 years of marriage counseling we were finally being honest. Honest with ourselves, honest with each other and honest with God. We were fully exposed and it sucked.
I wanted to leave. I wanted to go home. I didn’t want to meet new people. I wanted to curl up in my room and never leave. I was literally TERRIFIED. I looked at Kris and said, we need to go home, we can’t do this and started crying. The enemy was working so hard to separate us from what God had called us to do.
To John Mark & Stephanie. We know what it's like to go through the incredible struggles during courtship and can tell you it's worth it. Every tear, every battle, every setback, it's all worth it. To see your love for one another and your commitment to God was a blessing. We are so blessed that you choose us to capture your moments and hope that as you start the road to recovery that you're reminded daily of the incredible gift you have in each other.
To Jon & Chrysse, we are so blessed to have met you and have the honor of capturing all the smiles surrounding your day. As you enjoy your first Christmas as husband and wife, I'm still curious to what Jon's "First Christmas" envelope held. The joy of waiting to open gifts he's preplanned for the entire year is so exciting!!! Jon, please don't forget to continue the sweet gestures. When times get hard (and they will), remember what you felt on this very day, remember what you would've done to make her feel butterflies and go back to the basics. Chrysse, continue respecting Jon and value everything he has to offer. Never stop laughing hysterically when no one is watching, never stop holding hands and always share your love. You never know who's watching and encouraged by what you two have to offer. Thank you again for allowing us to capture your day and we pray God's many blessings for you two.

To Jordan and Tiffany. I've gone round and round on what to say because of the tears that fall every time I think of what Tiffany did. As a wife, I want my husband to know that no matter what his pain is, I will feel it with him. I want him to know that I respect his feelings, emotions, love and memories. Tiffany, you gave Jordan something he never thought he'd have during his wedding....his best friend. For 3 1/2 minutes, his friend was right next to him on the most important day of his life. Remember the selflessness you showed one another on that night. When things get hard, run back to this very moment. Thank you for allowing us to laugh, cry and enjoy every moment of your day.

To Joe and Heather, there’s nothing we can tell you about adversity. The enemy will do anything possible to pull people from God and as you draw closer.
