“There are no happy endings. Endings are sad, so let’s have a happy beginning and a happy middle.” ~Shel Silverstein, For the end of the night: A Light in the Attic
Misty: Early on in our relationship I was drawn to the way John always wondered about things, or researched a topic he wanted to learn more about. And I don’t mean something like “Who won the 1994 Superbowl?” It would be like, “How does the Arctic oscillation’s warm phase impact sailors on the trade winds?” Even though I just made that up, he actually thinks about stuff like that. Joking aside, John’s curiosity keeps our conversations interesting, pushes me to learn more (about ALL KINDS of stuff) and helps both of us grow as individuals and as a couple. He respects me for who I am, isn’t afraid to point out when I’m wrong and never tires of working toward the good of us. Plus, I have a huge soft spot for the way he gets down while running lights for StarFarm’s cover of Madonna’s ‘Like A Prayer’. It’s super cute.
John: These days I cannot imagine my life without Misty. She has a tender spirit and shows kindness and compassion to two- and four-legged creatures. I like how easy-going and independent she is and that she puts up with my crazy schedule. We are very compatible. Misty provides a foundation for my strengths and encourages me to always do and be better.
The titles “Best Man” and “Matron of Honor” just don’t do these fantastic people justice. They knew we would be a good pair, and they have been by our sides during some of the best and worst times. We’re so glad they agreed to stand by our sides once again, this time as we say our vows.
Misty: Whitney is as unique as a unicorn and just as colorful in every way. We met because I rented one half of a duplex where she and Chris lived. The first time I knocked on her door to introduce myself we talked for three hours. She is my truest friend, a ray of sunshine, and my sounding board for everything from politics and literature to campy movies and keeping me updated on the latest reality shows.I could wax on about how much she means to me forever, but suffice it to say I would have tried to marry her if Chris didn’t get to her first!
John: Chris and I have been making music together for about 6 years. Right now we are in two bands together. I’m always learning from him and I think we compliment each other’s musical abilities.
