S: Angie & Joe 09/10/11

FC: We want to give a special thank you to all of our friends and family for sharing this amazing time with us. Angie & Joe | Forrest Hills Mountain Resort Dahlonega, Ga. 9-10-11

1: Angie & Joe 9/10/11

2: Once upon a time there was a little boy named Joseph Florian Cox

3: and a pretty curly haired girl named Angie Kay Burk | they met | they fell in love | and the rest is history

4: About Angie Anyone reading this should know the basics about me such as I love to fish, I love animals all types, I am a non-smoker (smoking is a very big turn-off) for me, I love country music, I just love being outdoors, and I love spending time with my family and friends but did you know....... I just wanted to tell a little story that will explain why I am such a determined and independent woman. When I was very young my mother decided to leave an abusive husband and raise her tiny bundle of joy on her own. I was only a few months old when my mother who was just a baby herself ventured into the world. She never asked for assistance from the state or government to help raise me. She worked several jobs at a time while putting herself through school to make sure we had the essentials needed to survive. We did not live a glamorous life but we lived a happy life together. My mother taught me to stand on my own two feet and to never depend on someone else to make me happy. I admire my mom so much for everything she has done for me and my family. Now that you know how I became let me tell you about Captain Joe and me. Joe is one of the most caring men I have ever met. He is generous, funny, giving, and most of all he loves me with everything he has. I have never been in a relationship that makes me feel as comfortable and secure as my Captain Joe does. He makes me laugh and we "GET" each other which is very important. I am so excited that I get to spend the rest of my life with such an amazing man. I just couldn't imagine my life without him in it. It is actually hard for me to remember my life without him. I love you with all my heart and soul Joseph.

5: About Captain Joe Well, I like to fly fish, fishing in general, tie my own flies, kayak and animals. I like most animals more than most people. LOL I have spent most of my adult life working as a Paramedic. I have my father to thank for that since he was the driving force and inspiration for what I am doing now, my role model. My mother had her work cut out for her raising myself, my 2 brothers and my sister. We could be a handful.She always gave to us her love, support and encouragement. .Angie..... where do I start about her?? Well first let me start with the challenge that I face.Trying to catch more fish than her.... not gonna happen. She is an amazing fish catcher, she has even caught them with her bare hands!!!! Have her tell you the story; it's a good one! But seriously, she has shown me how wonderful life can be when you have someone by your side that gives to you more than you can ever give back. Her love for me is unconditional and makes me feel complete. She makes me laugh, she understands me and is able to put me in my place when I need it most, and sometimes when I don't. She is my soul mate, my best friend, my fishing partner and soon to be my partner for life. I am the luckiest man alive because she has given me her love and agreed to become my wife. I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with her and will try to give back to her as much love, understanding and patience as she has given to me. Angie, I love you and always will. Words do not adequately express my love for you. You are an amazing and beautiful woman that has touched my heart and I am honored to become your husband.I can't wait to see you walk down the aisle as my beautiful bride. You are the woman of my dreams and when I think about seeing you dressed for our wedding I cannot contain my smile and emotions.The joy and love you bring into my life is a special gift that I will cherish forever. I LOVE YOU ANGIE.

6: Day we got Engaged 1/20/2011 How Joe popped the question It all started with a dinner at Yamato's. After we stuffed ourselves and Angie thought we were going home, I told her that I needed to stop by Walmart to pick up a few things. She asked what I needed and I gave her the usual list of things.....toilet paper, etc. I chose to go the long way since I needed the extra time to compose myself, get up some courage and try not to vomit since I was so nervous. When we arrived and started toward the store I told her that I had forgotten my wallet and that I would be right back. I went to the truck and retrieved the ring hiding it in my pocket. When we started toward the store I asked her if we could sit down on one of the benches outside of Bonefish Grill. We sat down and started talking, she could tell that I was about to puke. After talking for a few minutes I then got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. She covered her face, started to tear up and said "Oh god Joe, I love you and want to spend the rest of my life with you". Snatching the ring from my hand she placed it on her finger and we then went toward Walmart. Upon entering the store I told her that I didn't really need anything from Walmart but it was the only excuse I could come up with to get her to Bonefish

7: . She then started making phone calls to her family and friends to tell them that she was now engaged, after nearly 2 hours I had to ask her if the answer to my question was yes. She said "What I did say yes" and I told her no that she just covered her face and teared up, which didn't really boost my confidence at the time, and she then replied "yes, yes, yes". The butterflies left my stomach, I didn't puke my Yamato's all over her shoes and she made me the happiest man alive. I love her so much. You see on that very bench outside of Bonefish is where I first told her that I love her and she said that she loved me over a year ago. Joe Now as I recall the night it was a little different..... Oh who the heck am I kidding after Joe proposed, I put that beautiful ring on my finger and started calling everyone and their uncle to tell them the good news the rest of the night is a blur! I love you Captain Joe! Angie

19: ~ Words of Wisdom ~

20: I Love You! Angie | Find a girl who looks at you and sees her prince charming despite the few extra pounds and grey hairs, who will actually listen to you when you need to talk, and is proud to be with you whether you are putting on the Ritz or baiting your hook, one who is not afraid to get her hands dirty or break a nail, That special someone who puts the color in your world, enjoys spending a romantic evening snuggled on the couch watching Survivor and keeps reminding you of how lucky she is that you are the most important part of her life..... although you keep wondering how is this possible...

21: Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the guy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you' re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU... The one who turns to his friends and says, thats her... | I Love You! Capt. Joe

43: OMG you will become Mrs. Angela Cox in 3 months to the day. Time has passed by so quickly, but it seems like only yesterday that I brought my little curly headed baby girl home. I was so proud to be a mom and too young to realize how scary it was going to be. I gave you life, but more importantly you gave me a reason to be alive. I was not the best mom, not even close, but I loved you then and now more than anyone could imagine. We grew up together. I brought the pets home and you took care of them.. I wanted to spend money that we didn’t have, you assured me that we could do without, as long as it wasn’t for food, There were a lot of hard times for us, but we always found a way to laugh and have fun together. I am so happy that you have found a soul mate to share your life with. You deserve to be happy for you bring so much happiness to those around you. Thank you Angie for making me look like an amazing mom, I love you Mom
