In a difficult year, Jeremy and I feel especially blessed to have had a long list of couples who have been flexible and even cheerful about the many changes and nuances this year has thrown at them. Couples have cut guest lists. They’ve had to incorporate safety into their celebrations. They’ve had to reschedule with short notice. And through everything, they’ve still stood at the altar, committed to one another through “better or worse” and left their wedding days with joy. We are so honored to have been part of each of their wedding days and it was a joy to finish off the year with Brandon and Cydney in our own home church.
The moment that Brandon turned around to see Cydney for the first time at their first look, you could see the nerves just melt away from both of them and the joy set in. You’ll see what I mean below - I had tears in my eyes just watching them! My favorite part was hearing Cydney’s mom’s giggle all the way across the parking lot as she watched them - so sweet!
Brandon and Cydney had to juggle a lot of things with COVID restrictions that came out the week of their wedding, but you wouldn’t have known it from the relaxed way that they celebrated the rest of their wedding day. They ate lunch, laughed with their families and friends and then separated before they met at the altar again to worship together and make their public commitment to one another. With a reception limited by gathering restrictions, it didn’t stop them from celebrating with close family, eating some delicious cake and smiling the evening away. It was a special joy for Jeremy and I to finish out a busy year of weddings in the church that we love with so many of the church family members that we love. Brandon and Cydney, we are so thankful that we know you and honored to see your marriage grow over the years!
