My Wedding

I got married just over 7 months ago to my very best friend. Our church was unavailable for us to get married in for over a year. My heart was broken, as I couldn't imagine NOT getting married in my church. We were living in different states in the meantime and I wanted to get going with married life and get closer to him. So in the end I had to make a choice. We ended up getting married by our pastor in a beautiful old hotel near the church. It wasn't my ideal situation, but as my pastor said that day "Christ abides in his people, not in a building".

So I thought I would share some photos from my wedding day with you. It was a very simple wedding (I am the youngest of 4 and was able to see the chaos that big weddings bring!) but it was a very happy day for us.

I'm ready!

My two sweet nephews. The older one came up to me later with tears in his eyes and said "Auntie, I am so happy for you that my heart hurts!"

I prayed for this man for so long, and now I'm so happy to marry him

  1. Beautiful! I love your dress! It's modest and gorgeous-perfect!

  2. Oh wow! It's so beautiful! Your story, the gown, the sweet comment from your nephew! You're so blessed girl. I'm very happy for you. :D Thanks for sharing the day with us. :)

    Have a wonderfully blessed day!


I love to fellowship with others and hear what they have to say. I would ask, however, that you be mindful of what you write and try to be uplifting and respectful. Thank you for sharing!
