After more than a year of marriage we’ve finally decided to update our site. I know, took us long enough! Though it may have been long ago, we hope that everyone had a fantastic time at our wedding and wanted to thank everyone for being part of the most magical night. Though it flew by for us, we are told that it was a beautiful wedding. Jeff and I do know though, that it would never have been the same without each and every one of you there.
For those of you that don’t know, Jeff and I left that weekend to visit the Outer Banks in North Carolina. North Carolina is where we truly feel the most relaxed and at home even though we have never lived there together. It was cold, windy and wet, but it didn’t matter, we were together, married and couldn’t have been happier. So after one short night it was back to reality, school and work.
Since then we have lived, in what seems, all over the state. Lynchburg, Woodbridge, Stafford, Richmond and Jeff lived in Silver Spring, MD for a while for work, we continue to live in Richmond for the time being but plan on returning to Lynchburg within the next few months for Jeff to finish his degree at Liberty. Plus we miss being in the country and mountains.
Life has thrown us a curve ball or two, but with our faith in God and the love of each other and our friends and family we have made it work. While we are thankful for everything that we had in 2010, we pray that 2011 will be a better year for us and everyone else who had a troubling 2010. So again thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing our most special and magical day with us, it wouldn’t have been the same without you!
Love to all,
Amy and Jeff
Jeff and I wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful wedding shower a few weekends ago. Nothing means more to us than spending time with our family and friends at this time in our lives as we prepare to become one. We will never forget the kindness and love we felt that day, thank you.
The “Wingate by Wyndham” hotel in Lynchburg, VA is now the official hotel where we have blocked off rooms at a reduced rate of $120 for the wedding. You are not required to stay at this hotel, though it’s one of the nicer hotel’s with a central location in Lynchburg. They ask that reservations be made before September 22, 2009 in order to receive this rate and have a guaranteed room. After this date they no longer save the rooms for us and you’re at the mercy of whether or not the college event that will be in town the same weekend fills it up or not. I recommend reserving your room ASAP if you plan on attending, and we would love to see you all there.
Invitations are in the process of being addressed as we speak and should be in the mail soon to follow. We hope to see you all in October for what is sure to be an unforgettable day!
Jeff and Amy
Any one who knows us, knows that our passion for animals far exceeds most ordinary people’s love for animals. So it is only fitting that our dogs are the ones who brought us together. We met volunteering for Pet Harbor Rescue & Referral, a Siberian Husky and cat rescue. We had known each other for a few years from volunteering at adoption events. One particular event Jeff had called to let the rescue know that he was going to be late. When he arrived we talked and hung out while doing our favorite thing; play with puppies.
When time came for tear down at the end of the adoption event, it was like I hit a brick wall. All of a sudden I really started to notice Jeff and developed a small crush on him. Later that night we began to email back and forth getting to know each other better. As time moved on we both began to fall in love more and more realizing that we were destined to be together for the rest of our lives.
Jeff and I would like to take this time to welcome all of you to our wedding site and thank each of you for taking this time to celebrate our lives together. We both feel blessed to have every one you in our lives and we hope that you will enjoy what you find within this site. If you need to get in touch with us, please feel free to send us an email and one of us will get back to you as soon as we can.
