"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. "

My Brother is a Married Man!

On August 29th my little bro married an incredible woman who is one of the most loving and servant-minded people I have ever met. We were so excited when Cory started casually dating Kristin a little over a year ago and to watch them fall so easily in love with each other has been so fun! They were definitely created for each other and compliment one another very well.

Here is my version of their story: Cory and Kristin (and my sis Suzanne) were good friends in college and they dated for a very brief time at one point, but Cory decided that he wasn't quite ready for an official "girlfriend" since he was just coming out of a different relationship that didn't work out. It was a good and bad thing since Cory did need more time to grow. Kristin, Suzanne and I weren't too happy about it, but for the most part we understood. Kristin and Cory remained friends and graduated from SFA and went their separate ways. After baby Ainsley was born last year, Suzanne was staying with us for a while to help us adjust to 3 kiddos under 3. (Bless my incredible sis!:) Kristin was living close by and Suzanne met her for coffee one night in McKinney. When Suzanne got home we began talking about where Kristin was in life and as we were talking we realized that Cory was kinda in the same spot and that they should talk and reconnect a little bit since they didn't live too far from each other. I texted Cory that night and pretty much told him that he let Kristin get away and that he needed to hang out with her asap. (I definitely pulled out my big sis card!;) With a little coaxing, he called Kristin and the rest is history! Suzanne and I like to say that we got to hand pick our sis-in-law! Kristin is such a beautiful person from the inside-out and we are more than thrilled to have her in our family as our new sis! Here are some pics from the fun wedding weekend that we had. I didn't take the best pics, but they are still fun! Enjoy!

Here is the bride and groom-to-be at their rehersal dinner. Aren't they so cute?!

Two of my favorite people in the world!

One last pic with Cory before he is a married man!

Andrew performed the ceremony and he did such an incredible job making it so personal to Cory and Kristin. Weddings are such an awesome way to praise the Lord for the amazing people He puts into our lives to shape and mold us! (Def not the best pic!)

Our Nana was such an awesome help throughout the weekend! (As always!)
Thank you, Nana! What would we do without you?!

My boy being silly.

And here is our attempt at a family pic at the end of the night... Just not happening, but E for effort! ;)
Cory and Kristin,
We are so proud of you guys and love you both so much! We can't wait to see how the Lord uses your marriage to shape and to impact other people for His glory! Thanks for letting us pour our little bit of marriage advice into you and for asking us to be a part of the 2nd biggest decision you will ever make in your lifetime! It was such an amazing wedding and weekend!
