Mississippi Country Wedding | Mr and Mrs Sullivan

Mississippi Country Wedding

Saturday I had the honor of celebrating Hayden + Brandon with their families and friends at their Mississippi Country wedding. The celebration was held at Hayden’s family’s farm, and I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful location!

My last wedding of 2019 was filled with beautiful details and family heirlooms that made my heart sing! Hayden + Brandon honored their families and their faith with every detail of their wedding day. From the cake servers and ring bearer pillow used in Hayden’s parent’s wedding, a first look with both of their parents, and the unity tree where dirt from each of their childhood homes was added during the ceremony, each detail told the story of a rich heritage of love built on a foundation of faith.

Hayden + Brandon, I have been praying for you and your new marriage as I have edited these images. I truly sense the Lord’s joy and excitement as you have made this step in obedience to His plan for your lives. I pray that you will always seek Him for clear direction in each decision you face. I pray His protection over you both, physically and emotionally, as you serve Jesus in your jobs and your personal lives. I pray that His love with fill you to overflowing! Abundant love for one another that overflows to each person you encounter, drawing many into the Kingdom of Heaven!

It has been such an honor to pray for you throughout your engagement, and to celebrate with you at your Mississippi Country wedding! I pray our friendship will continue for many years to come!

Mr. and Mrs. Welker | A Mississippi Wedding at The Cotton Market Venue

 

What an honor it has been to not only capture Emiley & Jonathan’s engagement season and wedding day, but to truly become friends with them! Emiley and Jonathan REALLY love Jesus, and we have had some powerful and encouraging conversations about Him! They also REALLY love one another, and their love shows in every image of them together!

My Jesus connection to Emiley & Jonathan goes back over ten years when I was in a Bible study at Pinelake with Jonathan’s mom Adina. Adina has been an encouragement and prayer warrior in my life for years. When she contacted me about capturing the day her baby boy becomes one with the girl of his dreams, I was overjoyed to be able to work with them! I loved every moment of getting to know each of them through our phone conversations, drive to and from the cotton field for their engagement session, and capturing each moment of their beautiful wedding day.

Emiley & Jonathan, it has been an honor to pray over you and speak life into you during this season. I am so excited to see the journey Jesus takes you on together. I pray we have many more conversations about Jesus and the experiences we will have with Him. As I wrote in your guest book Bible, stay full of the love of Jesus and you will live out these verses well.

Spirit-Guided Relationships: Wives and Husbands

 And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.

For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself.  No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. And we are members of his body.

As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one.  So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
