Our wedding party including ourselves, consists of 16 people. For my side there is, Jess, Deanna, Hailey, Ellen, Ashley, Danielle, and Tori. Joey's side consists of his dad, Cody, Bruce, Ethan, Jeff, Bryant, and Dakota. We love all of these people and they are all special to us in different ways and we cannot wait to share our day with them and the rest of our families! We love you all!

Jess is my beautiful maid of honor. She and I have been best friends for 5 years and I do not know what I would do without her. Besides Joey, Jess has been with me through a lot of ups and downs, especially with my health, and I cannot imagine not having her by my side on the most amazing day of my life. She is one of my biggest supporters and an overall amazing person who anyone is lucky to have. 

Deanna is one of Joey's sisters who I have become friends with. When I first met her I did not know that we would become friends. She is amazing and so much fun to talk to. We have a lot in common and she is a beautiful woman and a great firend. I do not really have that many female friends so when I acquire new ones, they are very special to me. She is very understanding about all of medical issues and talks to me when I'm having a bad day. I could not ask for a better friend. I am so glad we were introduced and became friends. She is a wonderful person. I am lucky to have her as a bridesmaid.

When I first met Hailey, I thought oh, she is just Joey's little sister and I never imaginged that we would become close either. Mainly because she is younger than me. She is a great friend and a good listener. I am so lucky to have her and her sister as some of my new friends. They are amazing women and I could not ask for better friends. I love them both equally and cannot wait to share my special day with them.

Ellen is one of my oldest and dearest friends. I would never go through with this day without her. I have known her for 13 years and we have experienced so many things together. All of the ups and all of the downs, she has seen my crazy and loved me at my worst. She is so wonderful and an absolute amazing person. Even though she is not my maid of honor, she is still a big part of my life, and I would not do this day without her. 

Ashley is like a sister to me because we were pretty much raised together. She is like an older sister to me, who has always taken care of me and influenced my life. She has a heart of gold and is a positive person. She always made sure that I was okay and that I had everything that I needed. She was my mother hen when we were kids. Even to this day, she still checks up on me and makes sure that I do not need anything. She is a beautiful person inside and out. I love her dearly and I cannot wait for her to be included on our special day.

Danielle is a lot like Ashley. Danielle is older than me as well and has always been a really good friend and made sure that I always had someone to talk to. She is also so beautiful inside and out. She has been there for through all of my surgeries and all of my other issues. My life has been a rollercoaster, her and ashley have constants in my life and no matter how much time has passed they act like nothing has changed when we talk. They are both wonderful people and I could not imagine my life without either of them. So including them on my special day means the world to me and I cannot wait.

Tori is my older sister, we have had our good and not so good parts of our relationship, but I would not want to have that day without her. She is my sister. We have been through SO much together, literally since the day we were born, to the day we were adopted, through our teenage years, and now into adulthood. I could never imagine a better partner in crime than my older sister. Even though sometimes the roles are reversed and I am the older sister and she is the younger one, but I love her with all of my heart and I cannot wait to share yet another special memory with her.

I chose my Dad as my best man for many reasons. One of them, is of course that I would not  be here today without him. He raised me to be the person I am today. I have looked up to and learned a lot from him for my entire life. My siblings and I were always taken care of when we were poor and scraping by to when we were comfortable. We had everything we wanted or needed. He has shown me how much it takes to raise children. He has shown me and taught me so many things, and I am thankful for him more than he probably realizes. I hope one day I can start to repay him for the life he has given me. Thanks dad and I am proud to have you as my best man and thankful that you will be there with me as I start a new chapter on life.

Cody is my best friend and we go back 13 years as of the wedding day. We strongly disliked each other in the beginning. We got into a fight and like most men became really good friends after. Cody aspires to write children's books with the stories he tells. We have all heard some of Cody's stories. Joking aside, Cody is a good man and has a good woman behind him. He is the reason me and Kate know each other. I am happy to have you up there man I appreciate all of the good times we have had. Here is to many more.

Bruce is my brother, he has mostly had my back since we were little. We are both getting married in 2022. We are not as close as we were when we were little. We are into much different lifestyles and hobbies. At the end of the day no matter what, if I needed him he would be there. 

Jeff and I have known each other for years. We have had our fair share of arguments and good times. He is the person that taught me how not to hunt. All jokes aside he is a good man and I am thankful that he will be up there with me on my wedding day. 

I met Bryant about a year and a half ago while I was learning how to scuba dive. He is a great person, and I have learned a lot from him. He has become one of the few people I would consider a friend. We have sat around and talked about many topics that most would consider things you do not talk to people about nowadays. Here is to the future brother, thank you for standing up there with me while I begin a new chapter in my life. 

Dakota is Kate's baby brother. I have only had the pleasure of meeting him a few times. He is a good man and I am proud to have him stand with me while I marry his sister. Thanks for being so welcoming into the family. 

Bubba is my little brother and we were really really close at one point in our lives. He moved to Alabama with my mother and her husband years ago. I have watched him grow up from a distance and am very proud of the man he has become. I'm greatful to have him as my groomsman. He is a very big part of my life. Hes one of my youngest siblings and im told i have influenced his life even after he moved. I hope that this shows him he is still a big part of my life. I love you bub and thank you for coming and standing up there with me as I begin this new adventure.
