I had the honor of capturing this special day of a dear family that was a huge part of my life and how I came to know Jesus when I was a teenager. Faith is my best friend’s little sister; the daughter of my youth pastor. I remember four years prior to this, Charity got married. Her day was calm, filled with contagious joy, and intentional moments. Faith’s day was exactly this. Her day started off spending time with her sisters, best friends, and parents. They relaxed getting ready, had some hot cinnamon rolls, and of course, coffee. Mix in a lot of laughter, tears, and hugs.
Treche, Faith’s mother, was a bit more emotional this day; Faith is the last one of her daughters to get married. Faith is their baby, their third daughter. I cannot even imagine the day that we marry off our last daughter, Joy (hopefully that will be a long time from now!) but I can relate the love we have for our children and how fast time moves, even though my oldest is only 4 years old! As Treche kept saying, “it goes by all too fast.”
Faith had a peaceful ease about her and Tim had a contagious joy and laughter about him. Two things were clear on this beautiful wedding day. Firstly, Tim loves Faith. You know that look when a guy sees a girl and it’s as if there is nothing else in the room but her? Well that’s how he looked at her half the time (that’s if he wasn’t laughing or making Faith laugh). Secondly, Faith and Tim love Jesus. Their wedding day wasn’t so much about the decorations or perfection, but it was about glorifying God on this beautiful celebration of this man and woman coming together.
Their day was perfect. But most of all, their marriage is and will be beautiful. I can see the strength of their marriage already and the perfect balance between these two beautiful souls. Congratulations and hope marriage has been everything you all imagined!! The best is yet to come!!
