My Dear Brianna,
In the last year and a half we’ve experienced so much together and I feel like I’ve known you my whole life. From what started as long conversations over the phone and long drives to see each other, in just a short amount of time, we’ve laid out a foundation in our relationship for the future.
One thing that I’ve learned from this relationship is to never stop being intentional. Be intentional to love, to serve, to go out of my way to make you happy, to communicate and to build up.
Brianna, you are my best friend. I stand here before you on this day about to make the biggest commitment of my life in front of friends and family. What led up to this point did not start one and a half years ago but it began many years ago through many convictions that I need to be a man of integrity, a man of humility, a man of leadership and a man after God’s heart.
Today, I look into your bright blue eyes and:
-I promise to be your ally in all situations
-I promise to be your number 1 fan
-I promise to protect you and encourage you
-I promise to make you laugh; although I’ll probably make you cry sometimes
-I promise to rearrange things on the table so you don’t knock them over
-I promise to be your comrade in our adventures and also your partner in mischievous pranks
-I promise to listen to your wisdom and also challenge you
-Most importantly, I promise to love you, to lead you, to serve you and to cherish you like a precious jewel.
I pray that God will give me the strength and wisdom to be the man that he wants me to be and I vow to stand with you, holding your hands, as we walk into this new adventure together in marriage because… I have found the one whom my soul loves.
Tim, Besides the gift of salvation you are the most precious gift God has given me. I know that along with the new joys God has given me, I face new responsibilities that I cannot fulfill in my own strength. But by Gods grace and power working within me, I desire to be trustworthy as your wife, to serve and love you in all circumstances, to submit to you and to allow God to use you to build His qualities in me as long as God gives us life on this earth. I praise God continually for you, Tim, for your relentless love, sacrificial heart and servant leadership. You are my best friend and am so excited to start this journey of faith along side you as your wife.
…I have found the one whom my soul loves.

3 Sentence Love Story
We couldn’t be more opposite, but the things that matter most unite us in a powerful way, in a way we can truly see the ugly and love one another in it. We know this is not generated from ourselves but from God, because He first loved us. We are fighters, warriors for love and relentlessly in pursuit after Gods heart. This is the greatest journey we can take together.
