The first time I met this beautiful bride was in 8th grade! We met in choir class and all I remember from that day was her amazing voice. It lit up a room and had an absolutely amazing smile to match. Over the years we shared a friendship and that will always truly be near and dear to my heart! Fast forward a few years down the road, Debbie shared with me that she had met someone special. From the moment I met Jake and saw the way Debbie looked at him, I knew that this man was truly the one for her and her amazing heart.
