The sun was high and bright, not a cloud in sight, and a warm breeze swept through the air. Minutes before, she was standing in a room full of girls, her best ones, pink sparkling everything and giggles everywhere, fluffing the tule of her dress and fawning over the rest. She was a real-life princess. Now, she stood behind a yellow wall at the end of a long path, the one that’d lead to her real-life prince. Her rock. Her solid center and compass constant. The man whose dad would’ve been so proud of who he’d become, because of the way he loves Christ and his bride like the church. It’d been nine years since the Lord called his Dad home, but he was there. He always is. Made manifest in his son’s kindness and gentleness to everyone, but especially her, his bride and almost wife. And as he looked down at the wristwatch he wore in memoriam to his dad, she took her first steps toward him and their moment together. He turned. She looked up. The expressions on their faces said more than words could. Her tears, his happiness, and every ounce of their story mixed together in a moment that made it a magical one. Only a few people in the world got to be there for it, and we’re so honored that we were some of them.
Lauren and Spencer, kindness runs through your veins and threads itself in and around every fiber of your being. Thank you, from the bottom of our heart, for trusting us with the biggest day of your life together. You two have so much to offer the world and we can’t wait to see where life’s road takes you. Wherever it does, we know you’ll bring goodness along for the ride. We know that you’re floating with a drink in your hand to the sound of ocean waves crashing somewhere in the Caribbean, but when you get back to your room and have some time, we hope these highlights from your wedding will help you take yourself back to (just for a few minutes) to the place and time when you became Mr. and Mrs. Crawford. We love you both!
