Yes, you read that right! There is going to be a wedding in the family!! My oldest brother Erik is going to married to Patty, a lovely girl who lives just down the road from him in Kentucky. Over the past two years since Erik moved, they have become very good friends, and Erik has found her family to be a "second family" to him long before he pursued Patty. Her older brother is his best friend, and he has a close relationship with the whole family. For a long time, however, there were a lot of reasons why the two of them being together didn't seem like it could ever be a possibility. God, in his sovereignty, held off the relationship until they were ready, and now it has flourished into something beautiful. They truly have become best friends.

|"Beloved, I must know: will you marry me??"|
|These are courtship pictures - they courted for just five weeks before engagement!|
|They can't seem to get enough of looking at each other!|
And here are some pictures of just the bride-to-be.
And some cute faces!
Congratulations Erik and Patty! :)
