It was a warm, hot Friday as we parked our car in the shade of Oxbow Country Estate. We were excited and looking forward to be able to capture Tommy + Venessa’s wedding story. Heading up to the bride’s room, we could already hear the chatter and there was much laughter, final arrangements and stories shared as the ladies were getting their last bit of makeup done, between getting dressed and making sure their hair was just perfect. Venessa was so excited and could not wait to meet Tommy standing on the other end of the aisle. We have never seen a bride walk down the aisle so quickly, one thing was sure, she was ready, she was excited and she did not want to waste any time saying “I do” to her best friend who will now be forever hers. Tommy + Venessa what really stood out for us was the love that you have for one another, it is one of fun, laughter, and sincerity. May there always be much laughter in your home and when times get tough, may you never forget the words of love, encouragement and support expressed by your family, who had so many wise words to offer on your wedding. If we can echo some of the words spoken to you on your wedding day, may your eyes always be ‘soft’ towards each other, so that you see the beauty of the person you married on your wedding day and learn to love them for who they are.
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:12-14
