It's amazing how some people just catch you, something deep inside of you recognizes something deep inside of them and you're hooked. That's how it is with Pieter. From the time that I was a little kid playing basketball with him, I knew the same thing that every other little boy on that team knew... Pieter was special. He's one of those guys that you meet and never forget. There's something about him, something in his gentle and peaceful demeanor that makes you feel at ease, but doesn't quite keep you from detecting that what lies beneath is the heart of a warrior. I moved away when solid friendships were being formed back in middle school and have always slightly regretted not having him in my life more. He's one of those guys that makes you believe in yourself. And in humanity.

His story with Monica is one for the books. Monica and Pieter's families were friends, so they grew up together: vacationing, adventuring, etc. I guess it's just one of those Providence things... proof that God knows what he's doing. There's really no better way to do it than to marry your best friend, and that is exactly what these 2 did.
As long as I've known the 2 of them, I don't think there was ever a question in anyone's mind that they were meant for each other. They have such a natural relationship that wether they're staring into each other's eyes or standing on completely opposite ends of a room from each other, you can feel the connection, almost as if their 2 hearts beat as one.

Monica is the perfect girl for Pieter. Every bit as real and human as Pieter, you can tell that an adventurer's soul lies beneath her gentle smile. There's a quite confidence in her face that comes with loving and being loved with whole heart and full abandon.

Pieter and Monica have been an inspiration and a model of purity and love to countless people who know them, myself included. I was so honored to be a part of their day, and I hope that as you watch this video, the transformative power of love, more specifically their love, brings a little bit of a glimmer to your life and to your day.

Pieter and Monica, thanks for being you. I can't wait to see what grand adventures are in store for you.
