Jessica

I can't believe this day is finally here. I remember the first time I saw you and your beautiful smile. I knew at that moment you were something amazing. I have gotten to know you so deeply over the years and it has been incredible seeing the layers of beauty unfold. Thank you for always being yourself and trusting me with your most vulnerable parts. I will always protect you and honor those parts you share with me.

You have caused me to grow and face my fears. You have always encouraged the best of me to come out and I hope I do the same for you. Your love, creative energy, sense of adventure and deep sense of compassion continue to inspire me every day. I love you more than anything I've ever known.

Thank you for saying yes and starting this new adventure with me. I can't wait to live through life with you by my side.

I will love you always and forever.

Ryan
