Hello, I’m Janeen Beuchel. I met Emily when we were in second grade and we soon became best friends. Over the years, Emily and I have shared many things: a love for reading, travel, and photography, many elementary and high school classes, bunks at church camp, a bucket of popcorn at the movies, rides to and from various places, and a love for God. We have been there with each other through the times of joy and of sadness. And even though we are from different families, in my heart I consider Emily a sister and feel blessed that she is in my life.
When Emily introduced me to Nathan, I knew that he was special. And over the past few years, I have watched their relationship grow and it is clear to me that these two sitting here next to me truly care for each other, in both the little and the big things in life. You can tell just by the way that Nathan holds Emily’s hand and the way that Emily looks at Nathan that they are truly meant to be together. Nathan has brought out in Emily what I have always seen in her for the world to see too.God has brought Nathan and Emily together and I know that as long as they keep God at the center of their lives, they will have a blessed and life-long marriage.
So, Nathan and Emily, I wish you all the best in the future and I pray that God will truly bless your marriage. Congratulations!
