"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

The Flshback Wedding fun continues!

Another fun pic at our wedding reception 10 years ago. These are some of our favorite guys on the planet!

Okay, this is where I start getting emotional when it comes to describing the deep friendships I have with my bridesmaids coming the next few days! This is Blake Self Boring and she is one of my very best friends. I actually "heard' of Blake before I met her Welcome Week in college because everyone was confusing us and calling me Blake and her Angie. (Even her boyfriend at the time did this! Haha!) The minute we met I knew that we would be BFF's for life. We had pretty much everything in common and it seemed like we lived the same life, but in different cities growing up. We did EVERYTHING together our first year of college and I have many funny stories that I won't share because Blake would KILL me if I did! We just have always had a blast together! She was just "that" friend for me and I praise God for her life and friendship over the years. We were roomies when Andrew and I were engaged and it was a no brainer for her to stand beside me as I married the man of my dreams. I got to return the favor to Blake on her wedding day a few years later. :) The Lord has brought us back together and we live about 10 minutes away from each other now! Our sons Austin and Hudson are 1 week apart in age and we get to play together all the time (and have fun girl nights, too!) I love that I have a friend here that knew me before I became a "pastor's wife." Blake, I love you girl! Thanks for all of your support and encouragement all of these years and for being one of my very best friends. You are the BEST!

This is Blake with Dave Austin. Dave was serving on staff with Andrew at Oak Grove Baptist Church and they became great buds during that time. Dave and his wife Sara were some of the only young married people we knew before our wedding and they were such awesome friends to us during that time. Dave helped Andrew with our engagement setup and him and Sara were the 1st people that we "told" we were getting married. Fun memories! :) we praise God for amazing friends like the Austin's before and during our journey together!

Christina Tripi Cox and I became great friends in college as well. I fell in love with her heart and love for others and it was another one of the easiest friendships I ever cultivated - just so natural. Christina was my roomie the semester before Andrew and I were married and she also served as my accountability/prayer partner during that time. I don't think she even knows today how much she helped me those months before our wedding. Tripi and Andrew also had a funny sibling-type relationship that was a lot of fun. Christina will always be a dear friend to me and I am so proud of the wife/mom she is today. Love you, girlie!

Here is Christina with Chris Pearson. Chris was one of Andrew's roomies and one of the most laid back and nicest guys I have ever met! Both Andrew and I aren't sure where Chris is now or what he is doing, but we are sure that with the kind of heart he has, he is doing great! Thanks for being part of our special day 10 years ago, Chris!
