As I drove away from spending time with Elizabeth as she was being prepped for getting married, I just about burst into tears. Joshua + Elizabeth’s love story is an incredible example to me of God providing exactly what He knows is best, in His time. I have watched both of them grow, change, and flourish out of hardship in the past few years, and I could not have predicted their stories would collide together so perfectly! But, this past Saturday, it did. Their individual stories were merged into one beautiful story and it was clear that there was one creative Author.
Elizabeth, you call a manhood out of Josh that wasn’t there before. You take him by the hand and encourage him towards courage and leadership. You are exactly what he needs. You wooed Elizabeth from oceans away, with creative Skype dates, vulnerability, and learning to trust, Josh. Now you are her husband and it looks real good on you! Keep wooing her and protecting her with that fierceness that has been evident since the two of you became an “us”.
Aside from the cutest bundtinis and my favorite catered wedding meal so far this summer, Josh + Elizabeth’s wedding day was filled with love, joy, and family fun! Watching the goofiness come out of all of the family members was a blast and honestly, some of my photos turned out blurry because I was laughing too hard. I may have snuck in a photo of my two favorite people, if you keep an eye out for it. 😉 May their joy bring joy to your Wednesday!
