It was forecasted to be 90% rain all day. I showed up with two umbrellas in tow, sincerely hoping it would brighten up but excited nonetheless. It was the day Jordan and Seth were getting married, so I knew it was going to be good! And good it was indeed!
The day was filled with the most beautiful details, from her grandmother’s gold locket containing her grandfather’s picture to glass soda bottles at the reception. Each item held weight in Jordan and Seth’s relationship, and I loved that the wedding was a reflection of them yet pointed solely to Christ!
Jordan exuded calm, beauty and grace all day. Her spirit was peaceful and she was a spectacular bride! Right before Jordan and Seth’s first look, they opened gifts and letters from each other — an Apple Watch for Jordan, boots for Seth (which he wore on the day!) and heartfelt letters. Their first look was a sweet moment, where Seth shed a few tears and Jordan was just giddy! It rained on and off throughout the day, but thankfully the rain cleared up by the time of the ceremony! Guests had a beautiful backdrop as they watched Seth wash Jordan’s feet to represent Christ serving His bride.
The sweetest time during the day was guests praying over Jordan and Seth before they made their exit. A few close friends said prayers aloud, while hands were placed on Jordan and Seth and throughout the circle. I may be a little biased since those folks are from my home church, but some of the best people in the world prayed over them! It was a captivating picture of the body of Christ coming around a newlywed couple, ready to encourage and bless as they venture into marriage.
Jordan and Seth, you are each other’s, and that is the sweetest gift. I pray that as you hang these pictures in your house, you’ll walk by them on the mundane days and remember the covenant you made at a farm in Georgia one Saturday in February.
