(Our Story as posted on our Wedding Website)

The relationship officially began in March “I love you”s were exchanged in April. In May, James asked about an ideal timeline for marriage. All this was before the next time they got to see each other in June for a second Desperation Conference.
Another full year later both James and Malia moved to Denver, CO and for the first time (in two years of knowing each other) were in the same city indefinitely.
December 26, 2009, while spending Christmas in California with James’ family, he took her to Del Mar Beach where good friends had carved words six feet tall in the sand, “Marry Me.” Malia said yes.
The long term relationship has begun.
