it's pretty crazy when something you've only talked about + dreamed about for years is finally a reality .
This is one of my longest + bestest friends right here.
We've been through so much together- middle school, high school, college + now adulthood years taking place .
We've spent countless hours in either her bedroom or mine talking about the future, what it would look like - where we would end up .
all of that, to say this -
Lauren, I am so happy that you have found the one who makes your soul deeply joyful for the rest of your life .
We used to talk about our weddings days endlessly, && now It's COMING .
Thank you for letting be a small part of this adventure that you are on.
& here's to you, Matthew .
May you be the husband to my best friend that she always wanted.
May you love + protect her, and lead her .
I have faith in you that you will continue to be a man after God's own heart
+ that you will translate your love for the Lord into your love for Lauren .
Congratulations to you both.
