Growing up, Jill and I were practically neighbors. We would always spend summers at Allatoona Lake and during the school year she was my lab partner in anatomy class (I won’t go into the gory details of all those dissections…eww!) I’ll never forget when Jill’s mom was telling us the story of how she knew that her husband was “the one” and our teenage minds were baffled. But HOW, we asked. Did you feel a certain way? Nervous, goosebumps, butterflies? Tell us! She laughed and told us that one day it would happen to us and we would “just know”. Years later….we now understand!
I think the story of how Gil & Jill’s relationship happened is so adorable! I know everyone worries about messing up God’s plan for our lives (especially relationships) but, I’m a huge believer that if you were meant to be together, it will happen no matter what you do or where you are. God has a way of making thing happen and having our paths cross with the right people. Having known each other for a year and shyly have a crush on each other, Gil asked Jill out on a date. Then just a few months later (just like her mom said), they “just knew”.
Gil & Jill had a sweet backyard ceremony in Talking Rock Georgia, near the General Store that Jill helps manage. It was perfect for them!
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, the ice cream truck came!! It was playing music and everything!
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” Ephesians 3:20
Congratulations Gil & Jill! It was such a blessing to be apart of your day. You both are fantastic people and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both! Much love! – Audrey Grace
