What have you learned over your years of marriage?
Joel: Be humble! Always be willing to lift the needs of your spouse above your. When both treat each other this way, no one ever feels insignificant, left out, or that their feelings do not matter.
Krystel: Laugh, a lot! Instead of getting mad about the little things, laugh about them. Take life on TOGETHER. You are married now and you don’t have to do it alone. In life you are going to celebrate the greatest joys together and morn the deepest sorrows, go through it all TOGETHER.
What do you love most about each other?
Joel: Her beauty, patience, and willingness to forgive.
Krystel: His heart, honesty, strength, and courage.
What advice do you have for others who are planning their vow renewal?
Joel: For the guys…PARTICIPATE! Nothing shows how her how much you love her like a willingness to be interested in her desires.
Krystel: This is about celebrating your love for each other and all of the people who have supported you on your journey. Make it FUN for you and your guests.
What was your most memorable moment about your vow renewal?
Joel: The moment she walked out of our suite to the tree where we renewed our vows. It was like gazing on her beauty for the first time.
Krystel: Hearing Joel say his vows… it was my first time hearing them when we were standing there in front of closest family and friends (I asked him to read them to me earlier but he wouldn’t he said to just wait) and in that moment they were some of the most beautiful words I have ever heard. I am so grateful to have such an amazing and caring husband.
