Selena + Justin
Well the wedding craziness has finally slowed down! But not until Selena + Justin said their I Do’s! We met Selena and Justin last year during summer. My first ever wedding was Selena’s good friend Judy, who stood up as her maid of honour this past Saturday. You were both amazing and beautiful brides!! I am so fortunate to have such wonderful brides as the both of you were!
My new assistant in training, Tina, and I arrived at the brides location late Saturday morning. The girls were getting their hair and makeup done while sharing memories and laughs! As Selena was getting her makeup down she was contemplating whether or not she should cover up the small freckle at the tip of her nose. She had mentioned that Justin loved this feature of hers. So of course us girls convinced her that she should own her little trademark freckle and she did just that!
When I seen Justin’s reaction to his bride, my heart was overflowed with joy! He couldn’t contain his emotions and it was a beautiful expression of his love for Selena! It is only a fraction of how God feels when we come to Him.
“We love because he first loved us.” – 1 John 4:19
Selena and Justin, my only marriage advice is to lean on God and His Word. My marriage isn’t perfect, we have trials and we have troubles. I don’t feel as though I am even one capable of giving advice, but in the times of feeling like I am failing, the only thing that uplifts my spirit and my marriage is Christ. It involves a lot of humility and putting our own needs and hurts aside, but it also comes with great joy. Remember that a marriage is made up of two sinners, so there will be hurt. But marriage is also a great testimony of unconditional love, forgiveness and Grace.
Thank you again for sharing your day with me, I can see how much you truly love each other and how much you truly love Christ. And I just want to thank my assistant, Tina Unger! Some of the images below, she captured! So give her a round of applause for learning so quickly!
