This was to be my first wedding at First Baptist of Jackson. Unfortunately the enemy tried to take my family out in a bad car wreck the day before. I am so thankful to Amelia Catherine & Co for her willingness to cover this beautiful wedding for me and love my couple well.
Rachel and Samuel’s love for one another shins brightly every time their eyes meet. Their joy is contagious and I have loved praying over them as I have edited these images. I see the love of Jesus these two share in every detail of their day.
As I have prayed, the Holy Spirit led me to this poem by M. S. Lowndes:
God has brought you here together
To be united in His love,
Joined in Holy Matrimony
With faith in God above
Let your faith guide your lives
With a measure of God’s grace,
For this is what keeps love strong
Through whatever you may face
Keep building your marriage on
The foundation of Christ,
It will not crumble or give way
Through the daily pressures of life
But it will stand the test of time,
Growing stronger day by day
Just keep your hearts truly united,
Joined as one when you pray
The cord that binds your hearts
Will not fray, or break in two
When you build your lives on God,
He will walk with you.
