We have been featured {twice}!!! has the time gone?  So much has happened since I last posted!  If you have not realized it already, I have basically given up journaling my wedding process step by step here as I had originally planned.  I really have a new found respect for blogging brides who also hold down a full time job :)!

A wise woman once told me that the most valuable advice that she could give me as a  bride-to-be was to enjoy every moment of it... I think that her advice is one of the few things that I have been able to sustain during this stage in my life... I have truly enjoyed every moment of our wedding planning process...

It is so amazing to me to see the hand of God at work in every element of this blessed union.  He never ceases to amaze me... I am so glad that I decided to delight myself in the Lord for He is truly giving me all of the desires of my heart!!!

As I share the magazine and the blog that our engagement story was featured in I am reminded of Psalm 37:5-6; "Commit your way to the Lord; He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun."  I thank You God for allowing your love, grace and mercy shine upon us!

We were first featured here in the Fall 2012 issue of the Engagement 101 magazine on page 98! You can pick one up here or at your local Books A Million. 

Secondly, we were featured on Truly Engaging Blog!  I was so pleased with the beautiful article that they wrote entitled, "Do You Believe in Fairy Tales?"  Here is a little excerpt from the article...

Do You Believe in Fairy Tales?

"Melanie and Robert do!

Once upon a time … a handsome boy named Robert, met a beautiful girl named Melanie. Their story is one of love, splendor and romance. A magical telling of dreams that come true–even those rooted in childhood! In fact, “Dreams Do Come True” is Melanie and Robert’s wedding theme. I admit to tearing up while reading their proposal story–and of Melanie {one of 5, raised by a single mom} who has always dreamed of going to Disney World. Well, the dream came true–replete with a perfectly-fitting glass slipper! Enjoy as Melanie tells the tale leading up to these stunning fairytale-themed engagement photos...."

Here is our save the date:

I am so thankful that we have been afforded the opportunity to share our story with so many others!  I pray that in the end we will touch the lives of that they will be able to see that truly it will be worth the wait!

Until next time,
