Local Wedding: Amanda & Joel!
We were at a conference with local colleges from around the state at Joel’s home church in McDonough, GA with an organization called the Baptist Collegiate Ministries. It was after the Sunday service and the pastor came on stage and introduced Joel and said that he was going to do some announcements. I had no idea what was going on.
Joel went up on stage and all of a sudden he was giving the most beautiful speech about me and I was SHOCKED! Mind you, this is in front of about 1500 people... He calls me up on stage, gets down on his knee, and pops the question... and I said YES! Even better still, he was able to get my parents there too. They were hiding in the balcony!!! It was perfect...
Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Make sure your husband/fiancé checks into your hotel the day before...it made the wedding night go smoother not having to deal with waiting in lines. And, know things are going to happen on the big day…If the cake is late or the flower girl spilled juice on her dress...don’t worry! No matter what happens at the end of the day you still get to marry your best friend!
