Kelsey & Justin, your wedding day at Grace Bible Church was beautifully full of the best mix of prayer, love & joy. You were so much fun to work with, and Max and I truly enjoyed getting to be by your side as you became husband and wife!
One of my favorite things is the personal touches throughout a wedding day, and I loved how Kelsey & Justin brought in their past & their personalities into the day in various ways. Kelsey & Justin met at bible study, so their relationship began with a foundation in Christ. They started their ceremony with a moment of prayer, and it was really moving to see the two of them standing in front of family & friends to bow their heads together in a conscious moment of again grounding their lives in Christ.
As the celebration kicked off, they danced for the first time as husband and wife, surrounded by their family & friends as John Legend’s All of Me played. Justin explained to me that they had heard that song all throughout their first vacation together in Boston, so it was a natural choice for their first dance. Then after John Legend faded out, a second dance began. A much different dance…. a mash up of a wide genre of songs accompanied by some impressive dance moves! At the end, amidst the applause, Kelsey said to their guests “You all know me… The only person in the entire world that could get me to do that is Justin!” And that, y’all, is what I love about love. That when you find the right person, they push you to be whole in ways you didn’t know you needed, and they’re right there by your side while you do it.
Kelsey, you were a stunning bride!!! That dress was just perfection on you!
This is just one of the reasons why I love first looks!!
Always one of my favorite moments of the day – when the groom gets to see his bride walk down the aisle!
Kelsey & Justin, you two are just perfect together, and I pray that you have the type of marriage that is a beacon for others to come closer to those they love and closer to Christ. May you have many happy years together!!
