Bonnie and Brandon have been inseparable since their first date. Sparks flew as soon as they saw each other, and as they got to know each other, a strong friendship quickly grew. Their wedding day in Yosemite was gorgeous, celebrated with close family and friends.

Bonnie is love struck every time she sees Brandon. She grins wildly and happiness radiates from her face. She had wonderful things to say about her groom:
“When I first laid eyes on Brandon, I thought to myself, “wow! this guy is so handsome. I can’t believe I waited so long to meet this guy! “And through talking with him the first night at dinner, he was so easy to talk to. He was witty, funny, polite, intriguing, and truly cared what I had to say as well. And throughout these last 3 1/2 years together, he is loyal, loving, caring, protective, and makes me laugh more than I have ever laughed in my entire life!!! He is my bestest friend in the whole wide world and I fall more in love with him each day. He brings out the very best in me and allows me to be my true authentic self.”
When Brandon saw her for the fist time, he was blown away by her beauty, and thought she would be intimidating. As they talked, he saw her for who she is, a bubbly, gorgeous woman that is easy to talk to. It’s no surprise they hit it off! He calls her his best friend. They laugh together every day until their stomachs hurt.
Brandon and Bonnie truly bring the phrase “in sickness and in health” to a whole new level. Less than one week after dating, Brandon went in for major surgery on his knee. Bonnie was there by his side for him 24 hours a day, for 7 days straight. 2 months later, both were in a sledding accident, where Bonnie broke her back and Brandon broke his leg. They started the long recovery together for that healing too. It has been a rewarding journey to learn and grow with each other, learn how to communicate in a healthy way, compromise, and listening to each others needs. They always, no matter what, have each others’ backs. That’s the recipe for a strong marriage.
