Derrick & Shari
I just wanted to take some time to give a shout out to my amazing parents, Derrick and Shari. They will be celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary this July and they have set such an amazing example of a strong, loving marriage. They really bring out the best in each other. My parents have supported me through every decision I’ve made (even the questionable ones) and have been there through all the highs and lows. My parents have sacrificed so much to give me and my brothers the world and there’s no way I could ever thank them enough. We’ve always been a really close family ever since I can remember and I knew when I met Wes that he needed my parents approval for things to work out. I remember telling Wes that there’s no chance we could continue dating if my parents didn’t like him. Well luckily for us both, they loved him right from the start and have welcomed him into the family with open arms. Thanks so much to my parents for all their support and help planning our dream wedding. We truly couldn’t do all this without them. Love you mom and dad!

Some parents give birth to a son, these two happen to have given birth to a legend. Unfortunately this wedding isn't Joshua's LOL. All jokes aside, these two have been the best parents I could have ever asked for. TV always says that the parents have a favorite child, and no matter how much Joshua and I think it's us, they have always done everything in their power to give Joshua and I everything. They have always supported me in everyway possible. From my worst decisions to my best decision (asking Jess to marry me). They have always had my back. Growing up in Europe, we have had to really stick together as a family I can honestly say, I've had the best childhood ever. My parents are so important to me that one of the first things I told Jess when we first started dating was "If my parents don't like you, then this isn't going to work". Fortunately, they welcomed her in with open arms and love her very much. My parents will also be celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary this June (2 days after our wedding) I love you guys very much.
