Man oh man, these two. I knew I would love them from the start. The first time I officially met them was getting in Emily's car in a parking lot to take their engagement pictures. Within about... 3 minutes I knew I loved them. We listened to Drake, Ben Rector and Chris Stapleton (because it's the only country Emily will listen to) and laughed, danced and talked about Jesus. We created a group text that night and decided to be best friends. They're authentic, loving, genuine and all things good. Their wedding day did such a good job reflecting who they are as individuals and who they are together and the day could not have gone any better. We ate pizza and danced and they rode off on Emily's beloved scooter, Shakes (short for Shakira, obviously). Your professional third wheel loves the Permaul's so very much!
