Showers Call For Umbrellas

Today was the church-wide wedding shower for Meg as she gets ready to marry Alex in 33 days! Meg being my sister and Alex my future brother-in-law.

As I was editing these pictures, the phrase “the happy couple” came to mind. I’ve never referenced Meg and Alex as that, nor does that come to mind when I think of them getting married. My mind says, “it’s just Meg and Alex.” But just Meg and Alex┬áis a great thing. They dated for five years and got engaged a year ago at the beach. Alex has basically been a brother to me and Sarah for a long time. Alex is Meg’s best friend, and vise versa. So it should be!

Today was such fun to be a part of–to see women in the church pour out their love, give kind gifts and leave notes of wisdom. The marriages represented in the room were strong and foundational ones for any young couple to draw wisdom from.

I’m really excited for Meg and Alex (soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Edwards) to start this journey as a married couple. It’ll be a great day of celebration!

Here are a few shots from this afternoon…
