To Have and To Hold

5 Jan

This past weekend, my mom and I traveled to Rochester, New York to be a part of the wedding of my dear and sweet friend, Adena. It was a privilege and honor to be able to stand beside the two of them and watch them pledge their lives and love to each other and the Lord Jesus Christ in holy matrimony. What a beautiful testimony to God’s faithfulness and goodness! Adena and David followed the Lord’s leading in their relationship from the first day they met each other and wanted the Lord to be glorified in their courtship and engagement. What a blessing and encouragement to see another young couple follow the Lord and be committed to keeping themselves for each other alone! 

Here’s a few pictures of the wedding:

What a gorgeous bride!

What a blessing to have such a sweet friend! Even though she is moving away, I’m quite excited –  because once I am married and moved, traveling distance between us will be closer than it’s ever been! 🙂

The bridesmaids walked down to “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” and the bride walked down to “Trumpet Voluntary”.
