Celia and James had an absolutely beautiful wedding in Decatur last week. We had tons of time with them to take photos, and Celia had scouted out the best routes to walk from place to place to make sure we would pass by her favorite magnolia tree from when she was a girl and the idyllic columned houses with beautiful gardens.
I loved her dad escorting her from the hotel to the church for her first look, the bridesmaids in short black dresses they felt beautiful wearing, the stunning purple bouquet and lavender details, and the way James would kiss Celia’s forehead and she would relax into his arms.
In the service, the pastor read a message from Celia describing her relationship with James as a daily experience of grace and of her hope for that in their marriage. . .it was wonderful reminder as we walk into the busyness of wedding season. Welcome to their wedding day. . .
