When Maryssa first contacted me earlier this summer, I knew immediately that I would love this couple. Maybe it was her use of “!” in her emails, which I translated into a joyful spirit. Or maybe it was the way she always said thank you! which I translated into a gracious spirit. (Or maybe I read too much into emails?) I don’t think so.
And if Maryssa really was as sweet as I thought she would be, certainly the man with whom she is preparing to share her life would be equally as awesome, right?
(Really, you can tell a lot from an email.)
Turns out, Maryssa and Noah not only met, but exceeded every one of my expectations. Two kind and gracious people with their feet planted firmly on the ground and their hearts and eyes open wide to the future. They laughed together with ease and supported one another effortlessly. It was as love should be–two people, comfortable, together.
Their love story that began just a few short years ago will continue forever when, next year, they join their lives together marriage. I have no doubt that many will be celebrating the love of these two people and I’m so thankful to be among them.
Noah and Maryssa, congratulations on your engagement and upcoming marriage!
