The sun’s reflection glimmered off the lake. Small ripples sparkling as they moved. The leaves rustled in the same breeze as they swayed over Sarah and Mike’s wedding at The Sterling Castle. Mike smiled down at Sarah. She held his hand a little tighter. She smiled back.
They had just finished their vows. And they knew what was next. The kiss. Sarah’s smile widened. She leaned into Mike. She kissed his cheek. The crowd giggled. She wasn’t suppose to kiss him yet. But, she didn’t care. He was her husband now. And she couldn’t, no wouldn’t, contain her joy.
From this moment forward, she would get to spend her life with her best friend. And she could think of no greater gift. The minister looked at them. He had just uttered those sought after words. “You may now kiss the bride.” Mike leaned in. He wrapped his arms around Sarah and pulled her in for a kiss. She kissed him back. What a perfect beginning to the rest of their lives.
Sarah and Mike,
The emotion that I witnessed on your wedding day is indescribable. Excitement, joy, and thankfulness were on your faces the entire day, but especially during your ceremony. Your hearts poured out to one another while you said your vows. And, I am so thankful I was able to witness it.
I pray that the Lord strengthen and bless your relationship as your marriage begins. And, my number one piece of marriage advice? Make sure you stay best friends. <3
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Brooks! Here’s to the next 50 years!
