How to describe Kristyn and Alex’s wedding day? A day filled with tranquility and adoration I would think. Wedding days can often be pretty hectic and crazy. From the moment I pulled onto the property at Bowing Oaks Plantation I felt a calmness that can be unfamiliar on such a busy day. Perhaps it was the Spanish Moss gently blowing in the breeze or the guys chilling by the corn hole games. It could have been the quietness in the reception room or fun tunes dancing in from the bride’s room. Whatever it was, it was perfect and set such a sweet stage for Kristyn and Alex to say I Do.
The bride’s room was filled with laughter of both Kristyn and her mother’s best friends. The excitement was palpable but met with a calming current of adoration. These friends, new and old, loved each other deeply. I could sense they’d seen each other through hard times and celebrated the good. They were bonded deeply.
The groom’s hang out was filled with great camaraderie – friends from long ago and friends more recent. They were boys being boys – playing pool and having a good laugh but also they shared the strength of standing by a friend on his big day. True men, I would say.
As the new Mr. and Mrs. began their day together, the peace and adoration they share with one another out shown all the love and joy the day had already possessed. There’s something that your mate can offer that no one else on earth ever could. The touch of the his hand that calms the madness around or the look in her eyes that holds the deepest love – these simple acts reassure that they’ll always be by your side. It was like I could see ahead into their marriage – easily choosing the other daily, being the rock for one another, and making fun memories forever. Marriage is a relationship like no other I’ve known. I know they will be a source of tranquility and adoration for one another and are going to make marriage look even more amazing!
Alex and Kristyn, Thank you is not enough to say for welcoming me into your beautiful wedding day and life. You both are such a joy to know and to witness your love is a blessing. I pray your life together is filled with joy unspeakable and that the love you share changes a world. Love you guys!
