Mr. and Mrs. Franks (19 years)

"It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me"

Greg and Kelly Franks

©      How did you meet?
We met on the internet when it wasn't popular in 1996, when there were chat rooms.  My sister brought home her computer from college and told me NOT to share ANY personal info with anyone.  He asked if there were any cute TX girls and I instant messaged him yes I was. We chatted on private message for 4 hrs and he was a hen pecker so I asked him if he wanted to call me.  He called and we talked until 6 am.  That was at Thanksgiving.  We kept talking and he bought me a plane ticket to come see him for New Years Eve.  I flew and he picked me up.  He put me in a hotel.  We were engaged 1 month later and married June 26, 1996.

©      What do you love about your husband?
He was hard working, VERY caring, and SO KIND!!!  I knew right away I would spend the rest of my life with Greg.

©      What are some things you enjoy doing together?
We go to movies and have a date night once a month.  We pray together every morning before we leave for work.  We do things as a family.  I LOVE to see him interact with our kids.

©      Kelly, what is your favorite part of marriage?
My favorite part of marriage is each stage we have been through.  I LOVE to spend time with Greg.  He is my soul mate!!

©      What is the most important aspect of a marriage?
COMMUNICATION!!!! You MUST tell how you are feeling about something.  If you don't, the person will NEVER know.  Do it in a kind way.

©     Life often throws many curveballs, and those that make it through those tough times stay together. How have you dealt with stressful times that arise?
We dealt with infertility for 10 years of our marriage.  It was the MOST difficult thing to deal with.  The problem was mine and I felt like SUCH a failure!! Having Greg reassure me and help me deal with it was AMAZING!!! We grew MUCH stronger in our faith.  We went to MANY Bible studies together during that time so we grew in our faith and with each other.

©      What are the strengths of your marriage?
Our faith

©     Greg, what do you love about Kelly
I love how she takes care of our children.

©     Kelly, what do you love about Greg?
I love how Greg cares for me! He definitely puts me on a pedestal! 

©      What advice would you give to newly married couples?
The advice we would give to young married couples is to follow the biblical example of marriage, leave your family and cleave to your spouse.  If you have children they do NOT come first.  First is The Lord-ALWAYS, then spouse, then children.  ALWAYS communicate!!

©      What song best describes your marriage?
George Strait's "I'm Carrying Your Love for Me"

Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

Ashton and Kenyetta were married on September 29, 2018 amongst family and friends. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Ashton and Kenyetta said their vows to their children, sweetly professing their unconditional love to them. The love was definitely felt throughout the church. The Bride chose rose and gold for her reception colors and they turned out beautifully.

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!




Congratulations on your engagement!! Now regain your composure and call your parents. Tell them the good news first. Then send a mass text to all of your family and friends!! The 'proper' way would be to hold an engagement party and formally announce your engagement, but let's face it...technology has changed all of the rules! So here's an idea....tell your friends and THEN have an engagement party and 'formally' announce your engagement!!

I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner (hint...hint) to help you with the logistics (date, location, theme, budget, style, etc.) of your wedding.

As your Bridal consultant I will guide you through every minor and major detail of your wedding day. Once you, your fiancé, and I have discussed the logistics of your wedding, both of you can sit back and relax knowing that your wedding day will be in the hands of a professional. 
On the day of your wedding, I will get you and your future spou…
