1: A Year in Review
2: Wedding | JESSICA'S
3: Jake & Jessica's wedding was absolutely amazing. When the thunderstorm hit and the power went out, I remember looking for Jessica, expecting to find her in tears. When I did find her, she was in tears, but said, "This is the best day of my life!!" <3
4: I caught her bouquet! | 8.21.2010
5: "Good evening evening everybody, my name is Jolene (Jessica's sister) for those of you who don't know me. Well, first of all, Jessica Sue Silver, I mean it with all of my heart when I say that you are my best friend. Whether it was let me crawl into your bed when I had a nightmare, or drive me to my friends' houses four times a week, every single little thing you have done for me is noted and appreciated. My most valuable memories are with you, and I will treasure them forever. My secrets, trust, faith, hope, and love are with you, and I thank you for the past fourteen years of friendship we have had together, and counting. I love you, Jessica. Well, Jessica and I have been very close since day one, so when she brought Jake home for the first time, she didn't have to say anything. I knew he was the one. All of the signs were there: the mysterious smile she gets while texting, the way she said his name, the unexplainable happy mood change, and not to mention the singing in the shower. Jake, you are truly the man of her dreams. As I said before, Jess and I are very close, so we can read each other with just one glance in each other's direction. So the day Jake proposed, I knew it the second they strolled into the church. Partly because they were an hour late, and partly because they didn't say a word--just smiled. I felt a whirlwind of emotions. I confess that I ran into the prayer room, jumping up and down screaming...literally. And then the screaming kind of turned into laughing, and then somehow the laughing kind of turned into tearing up, and then before I knew it, I was on the ground balling right in front of Jessica...all in about 15 seconds. I can honestly say that never in my life have I had tears of joy before, and now I understand the feeling completely. Separately, you two are truly incredible people, but together you are complete. As you sit side by side on this roller coaster of life, remember to praise God at the peaks, hold hands through the dips, laugh through the loop-de-loops, and enjoy every twist and turn. Coming together is the beginning, keeping together is progress; working together is success I love you guys, and may God bless your marriage.
