FC: Our Guests
1: Wedding Guests of Noah Tyler Beckner & Kristen Ann DeWeese | Friday the 6th of July, 2012 at Our Lady of Nazereth
2: Dear Kristen and Tyler The day I found out you, Kristen were with us was the most amazing day of my life! I believe I shook from inside out with the most incredible excitement I have ever felt! It was like I had finally arrived at my place in life where I was meant to be--your mother! Your father was so awed and amazed about the changes we made for you, for all of us. He always, to this very day says he knew God sent you to us at that exact time in our lives for a reason. I guess that reason was so our family would grow closer to God and we would live the kind of life He wants us to live. Knowing you were our gift from God and He trusted us to be your parents made us realize no sacrifice was too great for you. Your dad and I are so happy you have found such a loving, caring man to love and be your husband. We love Tyler too, very much. We are so proud of both of you and happy you have both opened your hearts to God's love and have accepted His grave into your hearts. Your commitment to the Lord will make both of you stronger and more resilient and will help to bless your marriage. We know there will be challenges in your marriage but with your faith in God you will have strength and grace to face the unknown and hardships. And we cannot forget the joys! Our wish for you is many joys and few hardships but mostly we wish you both lot of grace from our Lord. His grace will sustain you but you will have to seek it out. May you always have his strength to do so and never say I give up. May your marriage and commitment to each other grow each year and be and example of God's love. As your two families connect and you both grow together into a new family know we will alway be there for both of you. Know that you will always be loved, by us, by each other, and by God. With indescribable and undeniable love, Mom and Dad
5: Tyler and Kristen Today's the day you start the rest of your lives together! Few people can boast a love story like yours. As I think back through the years I smile just to think about the two of you as little children and yes I even cry a little thinking how fast time has gone by. We see the man and woman you have become and we thank God every day for the wonderful blessings He gave Bruce, Kathie, Dad and I! Tyler you were out miracle baby! God chose to give you a few obstacles to overcome in the beginning. I wondered why, but soon I understood that you had the strength and determination to over come them and I believe it has also made you a better man. The doctors told us you would probably be late crawling and walking. I can still hear that cast banging on the wood floor as you walked at ten months brace and all! They also told us you would never play sports. You played every sport and excelled at all of them!! Strength and courage come in many different forms and you seem to have an abundance of both! I've been sitting here remembering some of the fun times you had together as children. Kristen, few women can boast they were actually at their husband's baby shower. Your were such a beautiful baby, sitting there safe and loved in grandpa Ed's arms. I remember watching you all play in the creek, having picnics on the back porch, playing dalmatians in the basement. Noah getting stuck in the drying playing hide-n-seek, explaining to Kristen that yes boys and girls are different and little girls cannot "wee wee" standing up (you were only four at the time! lol). Going to bible school together and holding hands up on stage, going to the zoo. So many years have past and I can still remember it like it was yesterday. Then after a couple of years not seeing each other much there was this Halloween when we brought Makayla to trick-or-treat at Kathie and Bruce's. Kristen was all dressed up and beautiful and we could tell as soon as you two saw each other things had changed! Still we never dreamed one day we would be getting ready to watch the two of you get married! You have been sweet hearts since you were sixteen years old. For five years your love has grown and matured. Now you are getting married. Marriage can be hard sometimes but if you remember to keep God in your marriage, always try to put your spouse and family first, and ALWAYS love unconditionally you will have a wonderful life together! We cannot wait to watch the two of you grow in this new phase of your relationship, and we are very thankful that we will be apart of it! We love you both with all our hearts always and forever! Mom and Dad
9: A fairytale has just begun in the most perfect way, Down on one knee a ring was given, "YES" did the lady say, But this is not a dream you're in, this is love that's true, Now all await with eagerness the day you'll say "I do!"
16: "The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that's what you've given me. That's what I'd hoped to give you forever” -Nicholas Sparks
18: This day I will marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love.
22: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
25: To Kristen and Tyler Thank you so much for letting me make your guest book. I truly enjoyed making it and I hope you love it! Ever since I met the two of you I have seen such an amazing love. I am so very happy for the both of you. You will have an amazing life together full of love and happiness! I'm so blessed to have you both as friends! Congratulations on your wedding! Love Amanda
