It's hard to know where to begin with Alex and Jessica. But, this I know for sure, they are perfect-as in, the perfect storm of glitter, adventure, jokes, deep understanding, and Godliness. Don't ask me how all of those things collided. Just know that they have.
Alex met Jessica a little over a year ago right before he left home for military training. He questioned whether or not he should strike up a friendship with the gorgeous girl he'd met a church. With some egging on by Dad and our brother Trevor, he caved (although, I don't think it was hard. this girl is a gem).
So much of their relationship had been jerked around from dating to not dating. All the confusion due to Vision of Hope and others involved. But, this did not damage their friendship, in fact I can certainly say that it made it stronger. More importantly, it made each of them more aware of how they needed to please God in every situation.
I love weddings. Always have, always will. They are simply beautiful. But, what pushes me over the edge is when two Godly people get married to become one amazing force for God (oh goodness, that sounds like a lyric from Wicked...not intentional, I promise). Undoubtedly, this is what Alex and Jessica are. So, my dear brother and new sister, thank you for letting me be privy to your God honoring relationship.
|Everything about this dress was amazing. So Jessica.|
|When you're an amazing hairstylist, of course you do your own hair on your wedding day. And, of course it looks amazing.|
|Jessica's sister is an amazing artist. She makes fascinators and hats. The ones you see at the Royal Wedding (yeah, her sister made hats for the royal wedding. crazy!).|
|Practicing for later.|
|Oh! The shoes.|
|The sisters (or at least two of them).|
|I may be biased, but I think this kid is pretty handsome.|
|Actually, both of these kids are handsome.|
|Emulating some Lucy-Schroder action.|
|Always my favorite part. Always.|
|And, in true Jessica fashion, there was a boatload of glitter!|
Love you two like crazy cakes! Try not to get frost bite in Alaska, ok?
