Mom and Dad,
I just want to thank you for all that you have done for me. You have raised me to be a strong, God-loving woman, and now you have helped me to marry the man of my dreams. For this I am eternally grateful. I can not imagine being able to do it without your ongoing love and support. Thanks to the both of you, I have had a life that dreams are made of. I can not thank the two of you enough for all of the love, support, guidance, hand-holding, and tear wiping over the years. I am so grateful for the strong bonds between us and for the strong family unit you two worked so hard to cultivate in our home. The both of you have been overly generous to me and have given me such wonderful memories that I will cherish and pass down to our children. The lessons I have learned have been invaluable to me and will continue to lead me in the coming years. Thank you for making all of my dreams come true in my life, including the wedding day. Words simply cannot properly convey our heartfelt thanks for all you both have done to provide such an amazing and wonderful wedding day for us, from the entire wedding weekend of events, to our honeymoon excursion! We would not have been able to do any of this without the generosity from the both of you. We are forever grateful and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope that one day we can not only repay you, but also pay it forward by doing the same for our own children, with the example set by the two of you. James and I will be truly blessed if our marriage has even a fraction of the love that is in yours.
I would also like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Ephraim, Hannah and Emily for welcoming me into their family. I am blessed to have such loving in-laws.
Your patience, guidance and love have helped shape my life. Thank you for always supporting me throughout the years and for celebrating this day in our lives. I know I don’t always show it, but I want the both of you to know that I appreciate all you have given me to get me here.
Thank you Mom and Dad.
