Where do I start? This wedding was incredible. Justin and Rachel changed their plans for their wedding SO many times in the past few months, but it was all worth it! July 4th was the most beautifully hot, but love-filled day, and I am SO thankful I got to play a small part.
Rachel, you were such a stunning bride, but your kindness and love for others shone through just as radiantly. Justin, you can tell how much you love your family and friends. How much you love all your nieces and nephews, and how deeply you care for your parents. Hearing all of your speeches and toasts that were sincere and genuine was such a pleasure.
If I could describe your wedding day in one word, I would use the word “joy”.
Joy in the midst of chaos and uncertainty. Joy in the midst of change and turmoil. Ultimately, JOY. Because God is the centre of your marriage, both of you can trust that whatever He brings your way, He will use for good.
Thank you both for such an amazing day!
Here’s to forever, Mr. and Mrs. Olthof!
