There are many days when I think to myself how honored I am to be a part of such precious memories. When a groom turns and catches a glimpse of his bride for the first time or when I’m in the presence of a newborn, whose proud parents- despite sleepless nights are completely smitten with their tiny bundle of joy. The emotion and the sensitivity of those times are overwhelming to me. They grasp my heart and more times than not send tears streaming down my own face. This morning, was one such moment.
Standing against a backdrop that clearly speaks of our Creator, Mandy and Matthew renewed their vows. They shared their love, adoration for one another, mutual respect and desire to please Christ in their marriage day in and day out. A couple, so fresh and so young, understanding the depths of a covenant they made 36 months ago- inspiring. Love in it’s purest form. With Matthew’s dad leading the service, their parents and sweet baby girl watching on, they challeneged themselves to be better, to love deeper, to serve greater and to always stay focused on The One who joined their hearts together.
A morning overflowing with love- love that will stand the test of time. Love that will overcome. Love that flows purely out of a greater love for Him.
Thank you McNeal family for again, allowing me into your lives, into your tender moments. My heart spills over for your beautiful family.
After the ceremony, Mandy and Matthew slipped into something a little more casual, so we could capture their sweet family on this day. Madison may have been tired, but her sweet little cheeks, sparkly eyes and adorable gazes were absolutely perfect! She is one loved and blessed little girl!
