This is Beautiful

by admin on June 4, 2013 in Relationship with No Comments

I began learning the hovering feeling once we said “I Do.” It’s one of refinement without pressure to succeed. One of raw vulnerability concealed in grace.

Thought for the Week: Psalm 107:1-3

by admin on June 2, 2013 in Guest List, Thought for the Week with No Comments

Heavenly Father, You do not mess up when You bring forth circumstances, and You do not mess up when You prevent them. I can’t fully see the great plan that you are orchestrating, and I don’t always know what You hold back when You are preventing something; all I know is how I feel about what I perceive. I confess that it will be very hard for me if (name people) doesn’t/don’t show up to the wedding. Will You please gather those who are supposed to be there and help me to trust that those who can’t come are somehow in Your will for not being there? In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Designing A “Save the Date”

by admin on May 28, 2013 in Invitations, Logistics with No Comments

The best thing about Save the Dates is that they get you on the calendar of those whom you desperately want at your wedding without demanding you to have all your details figured out. Invitations get you on the calendar too, but because you normally have to wait so long to work out all the details of timing, venue, travel accommodations, etc., you might not be the first one to reserve that special date in your families’ and friends’ calendars.

Thought for the Week: Psalm 119:9

by admin on May 26, 2013 in Faith, Scripture, Thought for the Week with No Comments

Holy God, You are perfect in every way. Show me my sin, Lord, and give me the courage to face it, to confess it, and to lay it at Your feet so that You would help me repent. Heal me and restore me on a daily basis. I do not want anything to stand between You and me or between my husband and me, so bring to light anything that is currently in darkness. Show me how to use Your Word to guard myself from future sin. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

In My Father’s House: Wedding Homily

by admin on May 23, 2013 in Scripture, Sermon with No Comments

For the bride and groom, this homily was particularly perfect because they truly did not want to be the main focus at their wedding. They wanted it to point to the bigger and higher love of Jesus.

Praying Together

by admin on May 21, 2013 in Faith, Purity, Relationship with No Comments

Coming before the throne of grace together as a married couple will bring such blessing into your marriage. When both people are individually confessing their sins and soaking up the awe of God’s presence, both people will begin to conform to the image of Christ. And when both people in a marriage do that together, there is an un-replicated unity of authentic selves.

Thought for the Week: Psalm 124:8

by admin on May 19, 2013 in Faith, Thought for the Week with No Comments

Lord, Almighty Creator, You are greater than I can fathom. I can’t even understand heaven and earth, let alone create them. I take solace in that and comfort in the truth that my help comes from You; I will not be overwhelmed by sin or burden. Let me not shy away from examining my sin or accepting the trials in my life today, because I know that the greater it is, the more glory will be to Your name when You claim victory over it. Be glorified even in the dark depths of my heart today, Lord Jesus. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Thought for the Week: Psalm 16:6

Abba, my life is ultimately a gift from You.  Let me rejoice in the good that has been passed down to me and let me surrender the bad.  I desire to be a good steward of my life and to leave a goodly heritage, a legacy that would point all aspects of my life to You, the Living God Who loves us.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Weathering the Storms

by admin on May 9, 2013 in Logistics, Venue with No Comments

Do you have a weather contingency plan, be it for rain, dust storms, snow, or whatever other weather condition frequents your locale?

Ask your venue what they do in such circumstances. If you don’t like their plan, you should weigh the risk of inclement weather and decide if you want to lock in that venue.

Have Your Cake and They Can Too

by admin on May 7, 2013 in Budget, Reception Traditions with No Comments

A creative alternative to sheet cakes, however, is to use individual cakes, pies, cupcake tiers, or pastry displays at the tables. Arranged with some accenting flowers or candles, these table cakes would serve as the centerpiece as well, saving you from having to buy expensive floral arrangements for each table.
