Wearing the most perfect crisp white ball gown, laced with details from her sweet momma’s wedding dress, Nicole took a deep breath, and stood before her bridesmaids. Their eyes were shut tight as they waiting for the moment when they could see their best friend for very first time as a bride. Squeals of excitement filled the room as each lady gazed upon the marvelous sight. Nicole radiated like none other. Surrounded in laugher and happy squeals, Nicole sparkled. Soon after, the whole room began to fill with a sweet song as everyone join in as one accord, singing praises to God for this most special day. Tears started falling as I gazed upon the sight and soaked it all in.
Each women understood the covenant their best friend was about to make. It was so much more than a promise of love, decorated in pretty details, and perfected by months of preparation. Today, two people would stand together and promise to never give up on each other as they chased after Christ.
Nick + Nicole live life vibrantly and intentionally. Their Wedding was such a beautiful picture of what their relationship has grown to become. Friends and family stood breathlessly as Nicole made her way down to the man of her dreams, they laughed as Nick shared his vows to Nicole, and they teared up when Nicole sang lyrics to a song that touched Nick’s heart in such a precious way. The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm made for the most perfect backdrop to their most special day. I just LOVE this Georgia Wedding Venue!
