The Barn at Shady Lane, Birmingham, AL: The Donahues

This was my last wedding of 2022, and it sure was a great one! Micah and Eric Donahue are one of the most special couples. Micah is effortlessly beautiful. Eric was complimenting her all day long saying, “Micah, you’re just dynamite!” She truly was! They just have the sweetest relationship, and I was unbelievably lucky to witness their wedding day.

I’ve loved getting to know these two and learning more about their lives. Micah is one of five girls, and has a brother! All of theme have kids besides Micah, so it was a wild family affair! I’ve truly never seen so many kids at a wedding, but they all had an absolute blast playing together, burying each other in Fall leaves, and running around the venue during the reception.

I’m not kidding when I say this was the best wedding message I’ve ever heard. Their officiant talked about God in such a rich, gentle way. He reminded Micah and Eric that they are not perfect people, but are blessed to have a perfect God who will always be there when they trip and fall. He is our perfect helper! I wept through the whole ceremony and will remember those beautiful words for a very long time.
