Oh my word! This wedding!!! What an absolute testament to who Jesus is. Listen here:
Katie married Jack on August 29 in Helvetia, OR on the WINDIEST of days. Hair blowing everywhere, dress getting caught on blackberry brambles right and left (delaying the first look about 10 minutes while we tried to free Katie's dress while she stood about 5 feet away from Jack--no joke), sprinkles of rain...did they every complain about it? Nope. Just giggles. Lots and lots of giggles.
Before Katie and I left to go meet Jack for the first look, her and her bridesmaids prayed together. At the end of the prayer, Katie spoke up and said "Jesus, bring the rain, wind, whatever you want, we WILL receive it."
Katie, what you said should be written in every bridal guide book, every wedding planning book, basically everywhere. Your wedding day is more than weather...more than decorations...more than what you look like...it's about you and your love. Rain? BRING IT. Wind? BRING IT!
I feel like if you have an attitude of receiving -- God will bless you. Receive his plans and He will provide something even greater than what you expected. The sun peaked out the very second Katie + Jack were announced into their reception, and if that isn't the FACE of JESUS...then I don't know what else it could have been.
Thank you Katie + Jack for letting me enter into your love story and capture Jesus' blessings that were showered on you that day. Weddings like yours bring me closer to Jesus, and I thank you extra for that!
