"I'm so nervous," Ricky said as he adjusted his bow tie. He double checked his cuff-links, and asked me how he looked. His high school sweetheart was hiding around the corner, waiting for her soon-to-be husband to see her in her wedding gown for the first time. This moment had been years in the making and they both were filled with excitement, anticipation, and nerves. When Ricky finally turned around and saw his beautiful bride, he was ecstatic. And Gabby cried.
There are a few things that stood out to me about this couple. They're grateful, they're kind, they're sincere, and they're in love. As we walked around the capital, they would giggle quietly and talk about the road they've taken that's brought them to now. They were genuinely happy an content in all the peace that comes from a choice well made.
Gabby and Ricky, the qualities you exude are ones that will only strengthen your marriage as you go throughout life together. Your goodness and selfless concern for each other will only serve you. I can't wait to see all the good that's laying in store for you. Congratulations, you two!
