29: Rehearsal Dinner

31: Rehearsal Morning

52: According to God's holy decree, I promise to be to you a loving and loyal spouse, to cherish and keep you, in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, to be faithful to you only, as long as we both shall live. | I give you this ring, as I give you myself, with love and affection

53: So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. | Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. -Philippians 2:1-11

55: Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. -Ephesians 5:1-2

62: Maid of Honor - Kristin Raby First, I’d like to say I’m so glad we are all able to be here tonight. With all of the interesting adventures that planning this wedding has included, it’s exciting that we have finally made it here! For those of you I don’t know, my name is Kristin and I have known Becky for about ten years. We met during our youth group days at First Baptist Church in Raytown, but it wasn’t until about junior year of highschool that Becky and I became good friends. I have to say that nothing can bring two people together like Jennifer Franz and her strong opinions on dating and dancing (Becky and I broke both rules). It wasn’t until our joint venture to Truman State for college that our friendship really started to grow. It was indeed our time at Truman that allowed us to discover our love for all things British. In case some of you are not British experts, like Becky and myself, there is actually a rule that allows the meaning of a phrase to change when said in a British voice. For example, if I were to say to Becky “I don’t like you” she knew I meant I loved her very much. However, uttering said phrase in our normal voices was considered a grave insult. This may seem complex, but no one understood or appreciated our love for the British culture like Jon and his friend Drew. I met Jon shortly after he and Becky started dating. Upon meeting Jon and getting to know him, it’s obvious that he is very intelligent and is going to do great things in life. However, one thing I have learned about Jon during his relationship with Becky is that he’s a bit of a slow learner. For example, in case anyone doesn’t know, Jon and Becky dated four times before he finally decided to pop the question. FOUR TIMES. Fortunately for Jon, Becky is a very forgiving and gracious lady. So obviously when Becky told me that she and Jon were pretty serious and thinking about marriage I had some concerns. I mean, the kid couldn’t make up his mind. However, for those that know these two very well, you know they were made for each other. Just take a closer look at your favors tonight. I don’t know very many people that have even a mild interest in dinosaurs. When asked what initially attracted Jon to Becky, his reply was a bit unusual. It was her love of dinosaurs. In addition, these two share the most interesting taste in music I have ever encountered. I can’t honestly say I’ve ever listened to Neutral Milk Hotel or Sparkle Horse, which of course are some of their favorites. What really holds these two together is their love and adoration for each other. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a couple so consumed with each other. Instead of lamenting the struggle of a long-distance relationship while Jon was in Kentucky, they made it work by sitting on video chat and doing homework together for hours. Selflessness is at the core of their relationship and I know that will serve them well far into the future, as they take on many exciting adventures together. So, Becky and Jon, I wish for you a marriage filled with love, happiness, selflessness and playfulness. Continue to play with dinosaurs and listen to weird music. Keep playing NERTS, but Jon, please stop cheating. But mostly, continue to love each other fully and look to the Lord for guidance as you move forward in your lives together. I’m so blessed to call you both my friends and I wish you all the best in your lives together.

63: Best Man - Todd Turner Excuse me distinguished guests, I'd like to take a few moments to introduce myself and say a few words about the happy couple. I am Todd Turner. Jon and I met each other at Truman while in residence at Missouri Hall. Since then we have become friends, confidantes, and accomplices on many exciting occasions. Now, I am honored to stand before you as Jonathan Stutte's Best Man and life coach. The beautiful part about Today is that we are able to lay the concerns of the world aside. Today, we celebrate. Today, we are friends. So friends, lets take a brief stroll down memory lane. I had the privilege of watching this relationship from its infancy. Rewind to late August 2008. Jon and I were talking on the phone while he was at SA training. Jon explained that he had caused a management shakeup in Reslife because he had already taken an interest in his “co.” For the uninitiated, that's a big NO NO. I learned she was younger...a couple years younger. Before long, I moved back up to school and met this young woman. It wasn't long before I was mocking his new-found affections for this unknown underclassmen. However, once I met this young (and perhaps a little short) woman that I found what a big place she held in everyone's hearts that met her—none more so than Jon's. As time passed, they grew closer. I spent time with each of them together and apart. Mornings with tears, days of joy, and a couple nights of grief. Through this, Jon has demonstrated an unwaveringly steadfast commitment to Becky. In Rebecca, I've seen a gambler. Over the last few years, she has gone all in or all out. Since we became friends, she became like a sister I never had. Truth be told the only times she was out was when she took time to look to the Lord. Through the ups and downs, I saw a woman who sought my friend with fervor. Becky is sold out for God and she's sold out for her husband, and I'm sure she'll be a WONDERFUL wife. So friends, lets raise our glasses (of Nickelodian approved slime-colored beverage) and give cheers to a steadfast enduring passion.
