  1. Such a wonderful and beautiful bride you were no such a wonderful Christian mother and mate.
    God’s continued best to you and your magnificent husband!


  2. Yes it has and I still love you!!! MUAH!! You are too sweet! Happy 30th Anniversary!!!

  3. Brian and Jana Congratulations on 30 years of "Wedded Bliss". We were there at your wedding and remember that day very clearly. In fact you were our chaperones on our 2nd date and others. We've been your friends through the years and one thing I can say without a doubt "you are both still very much in love". We pray that God gives you 30 or more beautiful years together. We love you!
    Your Friends,
    Gaylen and Doreen Cantrell

  4. Mervi - thanks for your kind comments.

    Brian - love you forever.

    Gaylen & Doreen - you are true friends and mean so much to Brian and I. Love you two dearly.
    P.S. I think you are still on your honeymoon, too. :)

  5. Happy Anniversary! Your wedding dress looks beautiful. Do you still have it? I had my dress cleaned and preserved 6 years ago, and now it is displayed in a nice box in our bedroom. Thanks for sharing your wedding pics. I love seeing wedding photos of people that have been married 20 years or more. Bryce looks a lot like your husband when he was younger.

  6. Happy Anniversary to the most adorable couple! Now, you need to come our way so that can really celebrate. :)


  7. Carol - Thank you for your kind comments. Yes, I still have my wedding dress but I haven't preserved and boxed it like you have yours. The lace was a very heavy lace and it has some yellowing but is still a lovely gown. Several have commented at how Bryce looks like Brian. Bryce finds this funny because he is 70 pounds heavier than Brian was when we got married. :)

    Debbie - I am hoping we can all get together soon. The kids have a week off in early October so maybe we can work something out that week.

  8. Congratulations! I hate I missed the post on your actual date. Hope you enjoy 30 more wonderful years together.

  9. I absolutely love the second to last picture! That's adorable! Congratulations to both you of you, I hope you have many more years together.
