Our wedding story is one not only about us, but how so many that love us came together to make this a wedding a day we will always remember with joy and happiness.  We are so appreciative.

Tyler’s extensive experience as a Liturgical planner and organist allowed him to create a beautiful music liturgy.  With the help of Robert Carr, the Cathedral Choir, and Father Connall, we had a moving wedding ceremony that went hand in hand with the Marriage Preparation that we attended with Fr. Connall to prepare us for marriage beyond the wedding day.

Lauren’s experience as Ifong’s assistant (long ago) gave Lauren the experience to create everything from the invitations to colors to seating charts.   Every detail of the reception was considered for the wedding party and guests’ comfort and enjoyment.

The work done by Lauren, Tyler and all of the talented vendors made the day so magical and memorable.  And of course, our wedding would have been neither of these things were it not for all of the guests that took time and effort to travel (some a very great distance) to be with us to share this most honored event in our lives.

Because of Lord Jesus’ amazing plan, we were brought together despite of the fact that we are from two different countries. The journey of learning to love another person is not an easy one. We argued and fought, laughed and cried, and endured long distance between us. Yet because the faithfulness of God, we learned to be faithful to each other.

因着主耶稣的奇妙安排,我们从不同的国度走到一起,并能相知相识。因着主耶稣的爱,我们学会如何相爱。虽然我们时有争执,虽然我们哭过笑过,虽然我们曾经分开,但因着对这位信实的主,我们凭着信心一路同行。

We are thankful for the love and grace from our Heavenly Father, vividly expressed through families, friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ. As His children, we come daily to enjoy the love of the Father. And we are certain there is abundant richness yet for us to discover and receive.
我们感谢父神透过我们的家人、朋友以及主内的弟兄姊妹将满满的爱和恩典浇灌给我们。每一天我们如同孩子一般来到这位慈爱的父神怀中来领受祂的慈爱。我们知道祂有更多美好的计划等着我们去领受。

Sam and Casey’s history goes back to their high school teen living class.  Sam’s sister, Heather, had been friends with Casey for quite some time. Sam saw Casey in class and was instantly attracted to him.  Heather could tell that Sam was very smitten by Casey, and knew that they must meet.  So, Heather set them up on a date, and they hit it off right away. November 3, 2007, they were an official couple! After only dating for a couple months, everyone around them knew they were perfect, and they were constantly being told that they were soul mates, even by complete strangers!  Casey and Sam were truly a match made in heaven. After five blissful years as boyfriend and girlfriend, and many family vacations, summer days spent on the boat fishing, and winters at Schweitzer mountain skiing and snowboarding, Casey knew it was time to pop the question.  Casey took Sam fishing on September 21, 2012, on Hayden Lake where the engagement happened.  Casey and Sam have been together for seven years now, and are happy as ever!  They had a beautiful backyard country wedding on August 2, 2014.  They truly are, “happy ever after”, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
The Bride: I wanted to give a special thank to my parents for everything they did to give me the best day of my life. I am so truly blessed to have such amazing parents. Also wanted to give my deepest thanks to my mother and everything she did. For the past two years she has been working very hard on our wedding to make sure everything was perfect. She made all the center centerpieces and flowers arrangements and hand painted all the chairs one by one. Thank u mom love u with all my hart. I am so lucky to be married into the best family ever I am so thankful for everything they did for Casey and I. I am so happy to finally call them my mother and father in law and I can’t thank u guys enough for everything u guys did for our wedding love u all . One last thing thank u too all my girls that made my wedding day the best,love u all and my sisters ( maids of honer) you guys are amazing love u both very much everything u did was amazing.

*** A special thank you to our parents and family for all of your help! Especially my mom, Kerry Barbour! This day came together without a hitch because of all your hard work! Thank you for all you did to make the wedding of our dreams come true!

In a year and a half both Katie and Jeremiah would have never guessed their lives would have changed so dramatically in such a short period of time. It started with a blind date set up by a wonderful couple who thought these two should meet. They were right; on January 12th their love story began! They learned quickly how much they had in common. A few beer festivals, kayaking adventures and trips to the San Juan Islands and Mexico later they both knew they had found the one. The surprise kayaking engagement was the ideal setting to ask Katie to be his wife and best friend forever. Now, less than a year later they are living in Denver with new jobs, a new house, a new puppy and now newlyweds! Katie and Jeremiah summed it all up perfectly, “What a wonderful adventure! The best year and a half of our lives with many more to come! We feel so blessed to have found each other!”

Stacie and Andy at Arbor Crest Winery

A Walk Down the Aisle
If you were to ask Andy where he would be in his life five years ago, he wouldn’t have expected to say that he would be with an amazing woman who would bring him 3,000 miles from home and who would share in daily adventures. Whether the adventure be big or small, it always made him feel close to the girl he could easily say “I love you” too every day.
If you were to ask Stacie what she expected to gain from living in Syracuse, NY, she would of initially told you that it was just a place to get her Master’s degree as she planned to move back immediately to the west coast. However, soon did she realize, her heart had other plans. All it took was that fateful day when Stacie fell off the chair lift and met that wonderful guy who would change everything.
As the old saying goes, ” Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” We both find this saying to become more true each day. Never did we expect to become friends, fall in love, travel the country together, and one day say “I do”. We both had plans and ideas of where our life might be heading; however, we never were sure of the exact course our lives would take. All we know, is that we are glad to be taking this journey together and to have found our partner in crime.
So many people may not know what it feels like to know when you have the one. With Stacie by my side everything began to become a much clearer, bigger picture of what lied ahead in life. The possibilities when you know you have a partner always by your side on your journey seem endless. We knew without a doubt that we had found our other half nearly 2 years ago now and not a single day goes by where we wonder what could have been. Although, it’s funny to realize that when we were first getting to know each other we found out that we had multiple chances to meet from various friends or events. Yet, we both look back and agreed that how we met was meant to be. Without a doubt we knew a wedding was going to happen, but who knew what a wedding it would become!
