This is Carrie. She is a sweet friend I’ve had for a very long time. We met at my home church when her family moved there in Middle School. She was such an encourager as I went through the student ministry and my faith grew. She means so much to me that almost 6 years ago, she sang in my wedding. I have to say that she was absolutely amazing that day. In fact, I had no trouble with my emotions that day until I heard her singing as I was waiting to walk down the aisle.
Not too long ago, I received a random call. First of all, through the course of a couple years, I had broken a couple phones and lost many numbers (don’t you hate when that happens), so I had no idea who was calling. On the other end of the line was Carrie! At first I thought this was a much-needed catch-up call, but then she told me the news. “I’m engaged…and I’m getting married in November!” I believe that was July.
Many plans had to be worked out in a short time, but her wedding was absolutely gorgeous! Because the wedding dress arrived only days before the wedding, we used a little time before the wedding to get some bridals for sentimental reasons. Here’s a few from the day. She was just stunning, beaming with joy!
By the way, aren’t her flowers just gorgeous?! The pin was her late grandmother’s. I thought that was a beautiful touch!
I love her facial in this one! She looks ecstatic to be getting married!
And this one, too, of course! This is the laugh I remember her by.
My favorite of the day…
