Two words come to mind when I think of this wedding: pure joy. The feeling of this wedding is something that I won’t ever forget. Each moment was meaningfully planned and thought through to make sure that their wedding day was not only about them, but about The Lord’s will for their life, which was becoming one. I love the way that Kristen could not stop saying throughout the night “Y’all, this is my husband.” They took in each moment of the day and from beginning to end, they were grinning from ear to ear. And to celebrate, they did what they know best – ate Kristen’s favorite cupcakes from The Cupcake Shoppe and danced the night away with everyone they love.

Kristen and John’s gorgeous wedding celebration was held at the new and stunning Merrimon-Wynne House in Downtown Raleigh. And let me tell you, this house was packed to the brim with people who adore Kristen and John. From the bridal party to their family, it was so evident that this couple is so dearly loved.

I have been so blessed by this couple and know that their marriage is going to do great things for the Lord.
