I was so excited yesterday to get my highlight reel! I may have had 5 women from my office gathered around my monitor watching the 5 minute delight.
The day started as we gathered at the salon – 3 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, 2 stepdaughters, 2 nieces, 1 baby, and the bride. With tears on the brink the entire day, you can see my forced calm as I get ready transformed into unparalleled excitement as I meet my handsome groom at the alter, and a humbling knowledge of our commitment as we are led through our carefully thought-out ceremony.
A few formal pictures later, and Keith whisks me into our magical reception. It was wonderful to dance with him, my dad, and all the little girls. The food was unbelievably delicious. Every single detail came together, and all the work I’d put in to coordinate every color, every font, and every sentiment, paid off.
I love this man and these girls. As Keith sits beside me and works on his coding and I on this page before work, I praise God for blessing and challenging us with the covenant of marriage.
As I swoon over the video, a bit of Song of Solomon humor…
Strengthen me with raisins,
refresh me with apples,
for I am faint with love.
-Song of Solomon 2:5
