Most of all, I remember… When we think back to our wedding, there are three memories that stick out the most in our minds. The first is, the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. It is so cliché, but it was amazing to have so many family and friends in one room enjoying toasts, memories and good food! The next is, is getting ready before the wedding with our friends and waiting to see each other. It was such an exciting time. Lastly, we remember the ceremony. This was the part we probably focused the least on during our planning, but we remember being up there during the ceremony together the most vividly. We enjoyed that time and moment together most of all!

Most of all, I remember...Marcus and I decided not to see each other before the ceremony, so the moment when I began walking down the aisle meant so much to me. I had dreamed about it since I was a little girl, and then, that moment had finally arrived and the perfect person for me was waiting at the end of aisle! It made the whole experience so emotional for me.

When the ceremony was over, we quickly got into our get away car, and headed to the reception site at the ranch. Before we knew it, it was time for us to walk across the bridge to be announced as “Mr. and Mrs.” I'll never forget this because it was the first time after the ceremony that we were able to see our friends and family and really share our happiness with them. It was kind of a “Yeah, we did it! Now let’s celebrate!” kind of feeling.

Our first dance was to “Kissed You Goodnight” by Gloriana. We had taken dance lessons, but our dance was not choreographed. I remember how awesome Marcus did during the first dance! Now, looking back at the photos, I absolutely adore seeing the faces of our loved ones watching on as we danced. Their faces say it all and they were overcome with joy for us.

But most of all I remember the feeling Marcus and I had being surrounded by so much love and support on our wedding day. It was amazing to look down the candle lit tables and see all the smiling faces so full of love and happiness for us on our wedding day.



Taylor & Dean

Most of all, I remember... Before our wedding ceremony, my bridesmaids and I were tucked away in the church library of Westminster Presbyterian.  My sisters and my mom helped me put on my wedding dress...the women dearest to my heart were preparing me for Mark, my groom.  My mom tied my sash into a bow, just as she has done for me all my life.  Then, all of my bridesmaids, my mom, and I gathered in a circle and they prayed over me.  It was so sweet to hear their hearts poured out before God on my behalf.

Mark and I chose to have communion served during our ceremony.  Communion is our physical reminder of Jesus' sacrifce to reconcile us to the Father.  Communion unites the Body of Christ.  With unity and reconciliation being so central to marriage, we wanted them depicted at our wedding.  Mark and I took communion with our parents and then prayed with them as songs of praise filled the sanctuary and our loved ones took part in communion.  When we finished praying, we turned and watched our family and friends come up to be fed by the Lord's supper.  It was so sweet.  We were really able to embrace the moment.  My heart was overwhelmed by the love of God and the presence of our loved ones.

I will never forget dancing with Mark and my family toward the end of the reception.  We knew the night was coming to an end and we wanted to soak up every last bit of joy together.  We sang to our favorite Motown songs and danced and laughed. I was so happy and so full of love!



Blake & Leader

Most of all, I remember… I don’t know the exact moment I realized that I wanted to marry Bennett, but I do know that I always had the best time with him, no matter where we were and I knew that I always wanted him by my side. Bennett is my very best friend and who wouldn’t want to hang out with their best friend all the time?

Looking back on our wedding day there are three memories that stand out the most in my mind. The first is the fact that my grandparents were able to attend my wedding, and that was a huge deal to me. We weren’t sure if they would be able to make it, and they did. For that I am so thankful. The next memory is immediately following the wedding ceremony, Bennett and I were escorted into a private room to quickly eat dinner before we went out to mingle and enjoy the reception. I will always remember Bennett unbuttoning his tuxedo jacket and falling down to the floor on his back with a huge sigh and saying, “we did it!!” The last memory is that I almost fell out of the chair while dancing The Hora. It was so much fun and Bennett looked so amused in the photos, while I look completely terrified!

We love married life. We are at the point in our lives now where some big decisions are being made, and we are truly enjoying learning and figuring out the path that works best for us. It is a very exciting time and I look forward to all that lies ahead.



Burke & Bailey - An Anniversary Post

Most of all, I remember… When I look back to our wedding day, above all, I remember how I felt. There were so many emotions, but I guess it could best be described as a euphoric calm—happier and more excited than I’ve ever been, but also calm and confident because I knew I was making the best decision of my life by marrying Geoff (yes, I know how cheesy that sounds).  I will never forget seeing him standing at the altar waiting for me.

I remember walking into our reception and going to straight to the dance floor for our first dance.  It was the first time I really saw all my friends and family and it was so wonderfully overwhelming.  Geoff still laughs that I was a terrible dance partner because I was so busy waving to our guests the whole time.  I just couldn’t help it—when else in your life are you surrounded by all the people you love the most?!

I also remember disembarking from our “getaway boat ride.”  The boat dropped us off at Oyster Landing and we had a short walk to our “getaway car” that was waiting to take us to our hotel.  Unlike our rowdy, full reception, we were completely alone for the first time all night.  We couldn’t believe it was over, and how amazing it had been.  Two years later, I am still overcome with gratitude to my parents, my incredible husband, and all the people who helped make it the absolute best night of my life (so far)!

Most of all, I remember… Standing at the altar and looking into my wife's eyes. I will never forget how beautiful she looked and will never be able to fully explain how overwhelmed with love and appreciation I was.

I remember the hours after the wedding seemed to fly by in a blur, but the minutes preceding the ceremony dragged on for what seemed like hours. I have never been more ready for anything in my entire life than I was to marry Amanda.

I also remember that leaving our reception in a boat was epic. I remember saying goodbye to family and speeding off at 3 miles an hour :)

McGuyer & Hutson - Part 2

Most of all, I remember... Looking back on our wedding day there are so many wonderful memories that will always stay with us. However, I especially remember our marriage ceremony. Looking into Scott’s eyes as we said our vows to each other, before our guests and before the Lord, it was such a surreal and wonderful moment. The weather we enjoyed on our wedding day, will also always be remembered. It was such a beautiful day and we were so blessed to have such gorgeous weather! When we were announced Mr. and Mrs. Hutson upon the arriving to our reception was also so wonderful. I loved hearing my new name and that will always be a great memory! Finally, I know we will both always remember dancing the night away with each other, our closest friends and family.



McGuyer & Hutson - Part 1

Most of all, I remember... "I knew I wanted to marry Brooke from the very beginning. Her beauty and amazing smile immediately stood out, and it didn't take long to discover that she is also classy, fun, talented, has a heart of gold, and is my best friend. This was the girl I had waited my whole life for."

"After dating for several months, Scott and I became best friends and fell in love. He is a wonderful person inside and out, and I continue to thank God for bringing him into my life! I have always known I wanted to marry Scott because I couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life without him.

Scott proposed to me one Sunday, after I had been away with my girl friends. I walked into the back door of my house and I was greeted by a trail of rose petals. The petals led me to the living room where my husband to be was waiting for me. There were rose petals, flowers, and candles everywhere and Scott was dressed in a suit. As soon as I walked into the living room, he dropped to one knee and proposed to me. It was so romantic and sweet! I was even more surprised because he had told me he was also going out of town on a fishing trip, so seeing him and the romantic proposal were wonderful surprises!"

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.
