Thank you for visiting our wedding website.
The guestbook is now closed.
Since I was unable to make the event (again, my apologies) this was a great way to see the pics and share your joy. I'm so happy for you both!!!

We can't believe that you'll be home tomorrow from your hawaiian honeymoon. Wasn't it just yesterday that you were the center in a magical experience. You two made the most handsome couple at your wedding, absolutely exquisite. All of the other glowing and glitz was certainly outshined by your beautiful love for each other. We are both so very proud of you and your committment to each other. God is very happy... We love you both and can't wait to spend more relaxing time with you and hear about the magic of Maui (edited of course).
All of our Love and God's Blessings to you both.

Hi Sammi & Jon; I know you are having a dream of a honeymoon in Maui, but wanted to just say, Congratulations and WOW! Your wedding was breathtaking! A Winter Wonderland was planned and created and definitely was what we all experienced. Everything was so beautiful, especially the "blushing bride" and debonaire groom. I heard so many wonderful comments from the guests. Thanks, Moms, you did a fantastic job. It really was a fairytale wedding. "And they lived happily ever after". Love to you both, Grandma Carolyn and Grandpa Everett

Goodness Gracious! Only 23 more days! I am getting so excited, and I know that you must be a million times more so. Of course, I have been keeping up to date with Mother, Marie, on all the plans, and everything sounds so beautiful! God bless her, she has really knocked herself out trying to take care of all the planning and coordinating. Be very thankful for this wonderful angel. See you at the shower on Nov 19, Sam, and if I am lucky, I will get to see Jonathan, too. LUV U both, Grandma Carolyn

Thank you to all that have signed our guest book. I wanted to let everyone know that kids are welcome (and expected) to join in the wedding festivities. It definitely wouldn't be the same without them!

Wow, What a gift you all have for creativity, nostalgia and certainly loads of information. I feel as though I have been there with Sammi and Jonathan throughout their courtship. A masterpiece sight for sure. I sure hope that I can "fly in" for the big event. My calendar's marked and my bags are packed....(but then again, my bags are ALWAYS packed) ha ha Congratulations Sammi and Jonathan

Absolutely speechless! It's a beautiful site that is obviously the result of much time and effort. I'm still pondering the mischief that Sammi and I experienced at UHigh (note Wedding Party link). Seems to me that we didn't get into much trouble in our high school days. Cheers from Chicago!

Hi Sammi and Jon

Looks like you guys have everything under control. Your Website is very nice, and I know you put lots of work and thought into it. We are looking forward to your Big Day and of course we will plan to be there celebrating with you. It is hard to believe that you are getting married, but we will welcome Jon into this big family of ours with open arms. Congratulations and we love you.

Nice job! Need more pictures. And, Jon, figure out the coding on that Sears gift registry to go directly into your list. You can't shirk from that challenge...
