Lucas stands tall and poise at the altar of the church. Yet on the inside, he anxiously awaits his bride to reveal herself from behind the sanctuary doors. The music slowly intensifies as the moment gets closer and closer. Time seems to standstill as wonderful thoughts race through his head. Suddenly the doors swing open and the song vocals cry out:
“And I am changed by you
The more I get to know you
The more I want you close to me
And I’ll take care of you
Please just say you love me
Forever be whatever you need”
He takes Emily’s hand and places his ring of promise on her finger. Looking deeply into her eyes, he recalls the amazing four years they’ve spent together. Of course they’ve had ups and downs, but when they’re together, joy overflows from within both of them and ever since, they knew this was meant to be. As the evening moves near, Lucas and Emily share smiles with each other as they celebrate with their most personal friends and family, those who have been there since the beginning, watching them both grow closer together with every passing day. Today, Lucas and Emily have committed their lives to each other and to God. As they move away to Virginia, we wish them the best of luck and pray that they never lose touch with those who love them the most.
