What a crazy season the last nine months have been for Hubby and I! We have been in more weddings in the past 9 months, than I have any other time in my life COMBINED! I have been surprised at how beautiful and unique each of these weddings have been. When I think back to each of these weddings, I am amazed about how I can see elements of their personality shining through in each of their special days. I have been praying for these ladies and the lucky men that get to be called their husbands for a while now. I know that God has amazing things in store for their future.
Here are just a few pics of the amazing/crazy/joyous occasions:
Kristen and Trey (October 20, 2012)
Katie and Josh (November 17, 2012)
Meredith and Justin (May 18, 2013)
Laurelee and Paul (July 6, 2013)
Trish and Ryan (July 27, 2013)
After the many hours of planning, prepping, rehearsing, and partying, I can’t believe that all of these guys are married off and beginning their new lives as newlyweds. Each of them will face different challenges and trials over the next years and decades, however they will have each other to hold onto.
Waring and I have only been married for four very short years, but when I think about the meager advice I could offer these couples, a particular verse seems to come to mind. Christ doesn’t warn us that we will have trials he GUARANTEES it! However, he follows by promising: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16: 33
In the years to come, I hope and pray that these couples grow stronger in Christ and as a family. I hope that they rely on Christ and their relationship with each other as they live each and every day. Waring and I feel so blessed to have been asked to be a part of each couple’s special day. My daddy once told me that weddings are special, and that I should always take it seriously and feel honored to be asked to be a part of such a special day in a person’s life. I am truly honored, and I can’t wait to share many more memories with these beautiful couples!
LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
