On March 15, 2009, God blessed me with the best husband in the world (Yes, I have a bias). The night before our wedding, Garrett and I met and prayed in the park and we practiced the first dance we would perform as husband and wife. It was truly magical to know that I was in the arms of my soon-to-be husband. The next morning, I surprisingly woke up in peace, which I would have never anticipated after watching every wedding show imaginable leading up to our big day.
The wedding began with a friend of ours singing “Mighty to Save.” Garrett and I wanted to acknowledge the Lord as our most important guest. I can remember my maid of honor and my bridesmaids all bowing their heads with me and letting the words of the song dance in our hearts; it was a very sacred moment. After the song, Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March” played and I realized the day I had always wished for was finally here!
Garrett and I truly had a blessed day with the Lord and our loved ones.
Thank you God!
I chose to write about my experience as a newly married bride because I wanted to connect with brides out there in terms of learning and growing together. Prior to getting married, I was often told that marriage is A LOT of work. I was fearful that Garrett and I would become run down from all the extramarital pressures laid on us. We quickly learned to trust in the Bible verse, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” I pray that those who read this section are blessed and moved by God’s love. Welcome to our journey! We look forward to hearing about yours.
