Yacht Starship Wedding in Tampa Bay | Emily and Nick

The sea brushed against the yacht as it meandered through the bay. Chatter of family and friends filled the air. The music began. Without a word, the crowd hushed. All eyes turned towards the sun-soaked stairs. The gentle back and forth of the waves went almost unnoticed. Everyone eagerly waited for Emily and Nick’s Yacht Starship Wedding to begin.

 

Below deck, Emily stood among her wedding party. As each of her friends walked up the stairs, she grew more and more excited. She was about to marry the man of her dreams. The one she had prayed for. The one she would spend the rest of her life with. She tightened her grip on her father’s arm. He looked endearingly at her. It was time. They would be the next ones to walk down the aisle. She smiled. Marrying Nick would be one of the greatest joys of her life. And, she couldn’t wait. She took a deep breath. With one hand on her dress, she took the first step up the stairs.

 

“Marrying Nick would be one of the greatest joys of her life.”

 

Emily and Nick,

You two are something special. Period. Your excitement to spend your lives together has been so apparent from the day I met you! And your love for people is a shining light to those around you. And, for those reasons, I am so thankful for you two!

 

Because you are one of the most encouraging couples I have ever met. Your joy is contagious. Really, it is! Others cannot help but to smile when with you! Which makes it a true joy to spend time with you. So, my prayer for you two is that you only grow in that trait. You grow together and in loving people even more than you already do. I am so happy for you Mr. and Mrs. Katz! And I pray the Lord bless your marriage!
