Bride holds wedding bouquet.

Tears wet his cheeks as he waited. As he tried to wipe them away, they were immediately replaced by more. He stood at the front of the room at his Valle Vista Country Club Wedding. He could see his family sitting before him. They were all smiling and crying, just like him. The anticipation grew as he longed to see Jessica, his bride, walk down the aisle. He had wished this moment for so long. And now, it was here. He was about to vow his life to his best friend. His soon to be wife. And they would spend the rest of their lives together. He was ready. And then the doors opened.


“He was about to vow his life to his best friend. His soon to be wife.”


I cannot even begin to describe the love and grace that I experienced on Jessica and Cody’s wedding day. It was clear from the beginning. They were in love. They were getting married. Their friends and family were with them. And that’s all that mattered. And truly, that’s all that mattered to them. Not even the rain or cold brought a single negative word from their lips. They were just happy to be together and to have those they loved surrounding them. It was truly a day of celebration and thanksgiving.


And amazingly, they have always been this way. They exhibited the same joy and authenticity during every meeting and their engagement session. Jessica’s smile and kindness has always brightened the room. Cody’s calm and patient nature has always impressed me. And that’s who they are. Their character brings such substance to their relationship that it flourishes and blesses those around them.


“It was truly a day of celebration and thanksgiving.”


Jessica and Cody,

I was always excited to be a part of your wedding day. But after being apart of it, I am even more excited for your marriage. You two have such a strong foundation, and I cannot wait to see how the Lord blesses and uses your marriage to help and strengthen others. I am so thankful that you let me witness such a beautiful moment! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Linn!
