When I first came to Knoxville, a friend of mine, Paul Hassell (who also happens to be a photographer... and a killer one at that), introduced me to the church I now go to.  At church one day, a girl got up to give an offering.  I do remember what she talked about, but what I remember most is how she talked about it.  She spoke a language I could understand.  Since then, Nora and I have become really great friends. There is so much joy in watching a story unfold.  Nora and Paul's has been a story I have been on the edge of my seat for: from friendship, to a really long road trip out west, to dating, to lots of adventure, to engagement.... and now to marriage.  It has been an incredibly beautiful story, and I am honored to be a part of it.
