"My favorite thing about Tara is that we have so many similar interests and hobbies. By enjoying the outdoors alone, there are so many thing we get to do together. Whether it's camping, hunting, fishing, or hiking, etc.

Before the wedding I was definitely nervous, but it was a nervousness of getting the wedding started. All the planning was done and I was ready and anxious to get married. I did not see Tara before the wedding, so seeing her for the first time, in her wedding dress, walking down the aisle was remarkable. She looked absolutely gorgeous and had a big smile of her face. I remember being so thankful and happy standing up there while she was walking down the aisle. Definitely a moment I will never forget." -Ryan

"My favorite thing about Ryan is his heart. He has a heart for the Lord, for God's great outdoors, for family and for me. He loves me so well and I feel so blessed to be his wife.

Before the wedding I was so excited to walk down the aisle and finally see my groom. I was excited to hold his hands, say our "I do's," and become man and wife.

I felt elated after I said "I Do." I knew that my whole role in life had changed and now my secondary mission to loving the Lord, is to love and serve this wonderful man for the rest of my life. Ryan is a wonderful person and I am so thankful for his partnership. I love being his helper and I wouldn't have it any other way." -Tara
