I kept pinching myself the whole day of Seth + Sophies wedding. To be known by these two or their families is to be loved by them + to love them right back. I grew up babysitting Seth + his 4 siblings. Their family became part of my own + their is a huge place in my heart for the Hovland clan. Sophie + her family also hold a dear place in my heart. We spent many many sunny days jumping on their trampoline or off the end of her dock. Not to mention that their mother + daughter annual tea party was the talk of our childhood summers.
On December 27th, 2015 the room filled with hundreds of people excited to celebrate these two. To cheer on love. And ready to promise to fight for their marriage for years to come. No detail or heart was left untouched that day.
One of my favorite moments took place in the quiet of the back room where Sophie got ready. Her bridesmaids + best friends gathered to pray for her. The presence of God was thick + the power of their prayers stuck with me. Friendships that come alongside you + push you towards Jesus are simply breathtaking. That theme rang through the day- a love so deep it caused you to pause. To breathe it in deep. To dance in celebration.
Seth + Sophie, it was the dearest honor to capture your day. But the true honor will be in watching you grow old together. Chasing the dreams God has planted in your hearts. I will forever be a cheerleader for your marriage. I love you guys!
