Love Letters and #JAbride

Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year. It is filled with flowers, gifts from the heart, delicious dinners, love letters, and likely lots of kisses. This year we asked our #JAbride(s) to submit love letters to their spouses along with a favorite photo from their wedding. What follows is smooches and lots of love so grab some kleenex and let our beautiful and thoughtful brides bring a tear or two to your eye. Happy Valentine’s Day!

To my love, Marrying you was the most beautiful moment of my life. Seeing you at the end of the aisle and giggling like the sweet playful man that you are is a moment I’ll never forget. The music, the toasts, the vows, the dance we shared alone before we left the venue, ALL of it, I would do it over and over again if that meant standing before God and our loved ones promising forever to you! You are the definition of a “Godly” man and I’m so thankful for the prayer, ministry, and word you bring into our home. You are more hardworking than most and knowing you do it for me to be able to live my dreams is a true gift. You show me how to relax, live for the simple things, be gentle, and love even harder. I’m so thankful for you and your love. Happy Valentine’s today & forever, Mr. Crane. xoxo

Dear Josh, I knew from the very beginning of meeting you that you were unlike anyone I had ever known before. You've always treated me with such a loving kindness that it was easy to fall in love with you. Your gorgeous, green eyes might have also been a factor! I love our adventures together whether we're traveling to Paris for our honeymoon or simply running errands, we always find a way to enjoy ourselves. You're my very best friend, my favorite person, my soulmate. I feel so happy that you are my Valentine for life. I can't wait to begin our next adventure in a just a couple of months, buying our first house together! Love, Lenachka

My Tyler, Of all the decisions I have made in my life, marrying you is my favorite one. You are the only person who can challenge me to better myself while making me feel like I’m more than good enough. You are my partner, my lover, and my truest friend. Whatever forever may look like, I know life will be beautiful with you by my side. I will support your dreams and calm your fears. I will care for you and allow myself to be cared for by you. I will choose you every day. I love you—a million times “I do.” Love, Marissa
