Mandy wrote quite possibly the sweetest tribute I’ve ever read to Abbey & Daniel on her blog -
“I’ve known Abbey since she was in high school. One of my earliest memories of her is her playing an elf in one of our Church’s Christmas musicals. Although she was already in high school, she somehow made the cutest elf. At some point in time she grew into a gorgeous and amazingly sweet bride.
I cannot say enough about how blessed I was to spend the day with her, Daniel, their sweet friends, and awesome families. I’m not embarrassed to admit that I shed a few tears at various times throughout the day. It was just one of those weddings.
Sometimes, in the midst of the craziness of the day and of me working my tail off to do a great job, I find these moments. Moments where my heart gets ministered to. Moments where I realize that I am just so blessed to know the people I know, be able to work hard for them, and in the end receive so much more than just a paycheck.”
