Kris + Janelle - I DO, Ohio Wedding

The wedding I am about to share with you is very near and dear to my heart. I can not say enough about Janelle...we go way back, not like high school way back, but back to a time when friendship was very important in our lives (in the trenches). Janelle and I were roommates for about a year, and I don't know what Kris will have to say now, but I have had quite a few roommates over the years and I can say that she was the easiest person one could ever live with. She is kind, genuine, considerate, organized and she makes GIANT messes in the kitchen. She knows how to laugh at herself and that is a quality that will definitely come in handy in life and especially in a marriage. I knew from the first time I met Kris that he was a great guy. He is strong and gentle, funny and smart, goal oriented and calm...and best of all I could tell that he really cared about Janelle. Seeing these 2 get married made me so happy in my heart. I know that they were both waiting, and praying for this day for a very long time...and the waiting paid off 7 fold both of them hit the lottery on September 17th, 2011.
