Kathryn & Hunter

Most of all, I remember... Kathryn: The most memorable moment of the wedding was the exchanging of letters..but what I got, I never saw coming. With my wedding party anxiously around me, I began opening the envelope addressed “Kathryn.” As I began to pull out his letter with beautifully monogrammed stationary I noticed a separate little something at the bottom of the envelope. Before taking it out I knew exactly what it was. Side note- I never cry- but I lost it. It was a paper heart. Not just any paper heart, but the one I gave him 5 years ago when we first started dating. The heart read, “To you my other half, keep this with you wherever you go so you know no matter where you are, I am always right there with you. You will always have my other half of my heart so when we’re together we’re whole. KTE.” After pulling myself together I began reading his letter where he explained how he had kept it in his wallet but no longer needed it after today because we would be married and whole. I continued reading and in true Hunter style, he managed to make me laugh and cry all at the same time. It was then that I knew I was making the best decision of my life.

Hunter: Narrowing down all the great memories I have of our wedding day to one is not easy. But if I had to pick one, other than seeing Kathryn appear at the end of the isle for the first time, it would be getting to walk into the ball room with Kathryn right after the ceremony and seeing my groom’s cake for the first time. Anyone that knows Kathryn well enough knows that she enjoys surprises. The one aspect of the wedding that Kathryn would not let me be involved with was my groom’s cake, she wanted it to be a surprise. I knew how hard Kathryn worked on designing my cake and being able to finally see it blew me away.

Happy 1st Anniversary Jessie & Jon!

Most of all, I remember... From Jessie: Reminiscing on our wedding day is one of my most favorite things to do.  It truly has been the best day of my life.  I remember getting ready for our wedding, and feeling so thankful to get to spend the morning with my beautiful friends and loving family.  Our morning consisted on hair, make up, and a quick dance party before I put my dress on. Our ceremony was extremely special to me.  Walking down the aisle with my father as he handed me off to Jon is a moment I will never forget.  As Jon and I said our vows, we stood in font of a beautiful white cross that was dedicated in memory of my late aunt, a lady who my family holds very dear to our hearts. Our flower girls could not have been more adorable.  Our beautiful two year old nieces, Annie and Claire, were the stars of the show.  Claire was a great up close and personal witness to Jon and I exchanging our vows and lighting the unity candle (for a second we thought she might tip over the table with the candles...).  Claire also joined in on our first dance, which made our dance one-of-a kind!

From Jon: Since we didn't have a first look, the first time I saw Jessie on our wedding day was when her dad walked her down the aisle.  I can't express in words the feeling that I felt when I first saw her, but it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The weather on our wedding day made for an incredibly dramatic ceremony.  I'll never forget the sound of rumbling thunder we heard throughout our ceremony and the misty fog that surrounded the pavilion. The weather made for such a surreal setting, and it almost seemed as if our officiant had the claps of thunder on cue.  Our first dance also stands out in my mind.  I'm definitely not a dancer, so I was more nervous about the first dance than any other part of the wedding -- even more so than the getting married part.  I drug Jessie to a few dance lessons in the weeks leading up to the wedding which did more harm than good.  By the time the first dance came around though, I was on the moon.  All of the dance lessons went out the window, and I just went with what felt natural.  As Jess mentioned, it helped that my new two-year-old niece Claire joined us on the dance floor.  She definitely gave me a needed distraction so everyone didn't focus on me stepping on Jessie's feet...

Finally, what Jon and I both remember the most is the love and support we received and continue to receive from our families and friends.  We couldn't be more blessed, and marriage is off to a terrific start!

6 Years Ago,Today... Andrea Little & Matt Gentle

Most if all, I remember...I knew there was something different about my and Matt's relationship very early on. It was just so comfortable. The lifetime type of love. Then after about a year of dating his mom passed away very suddenly, and while we were sitting in his car after her funeral he just looked at me and said, "I'm just so sad she didn't get to see us get married." That was the first time either of us vocalized what we probably both felt about our relationship from the beginning - that it was forever. And from that moment on I knew for sure. About six months later he proposed at a restaurant downtown and then he surprised me with an impromptu engagement party with all our closest friends that night.

What I remember from the wedding how nervous I was before the ceremony. I think I was literally shaking walking down the aisle. But when I got to the end and the paster started talking I put my head on my dad's shoulder, looked at Matt, and the most overwhelming sense of joy came over me. I was just so incredibly happy to be marrying this man. I remember the energy I felt walking into the reception and how my girlfriends and I danced through dinner. I remember my family dancing through the entire song of "We are Family" in a big group hug. But most of all I remember how humbling it was to see all the people that took time out of their busy lives to come and celebrate with us and just how special it felt to have all of our favorite people in the world in one room.

Six years ago I really thought that I loved Matt as much as I possibly could. But now I know now that I had no idea just how deep that love would grow. I had no idea how I would get teary eyed just thinking about one minute without him as my partner, closest ally, and center of this life we have created as the Gentles. Six years ago I also thought that having him as my husband was the greatest thing in the world, but seeing him as a father to our two sons brings me more happiness than I ever could have imagined. I am just so proud of him. And I am certain his mom is proud too.
