“I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine…” Song of songs 6:3

There was pure joy on Matt and Stuart’s wedding day. They had been waiting for this day, excited for this day, praying for this day for a long time.  Both have served as counselors at the Fort Caswell Youth Camp, and it was so sweet to celebrate their marriage at the same camp that held so many memories for this couple! They have poured out their lives for the Lord, for the students, and in ministry. On their wedding day, they finally poured their hearts to one another.

There are so many things I loved about this day.
I love that Matt wrote two letters to Stuart – one on the night before he proposed (to his best friend) and one on the night before their wedding (to his bride).
I love that Stuart laughed and cried and laughed and cried when she opened his gift (which was a camera! Bonus points to Matt!)
I love that a dear friend preformed the ceremony.
I loved the beautiful, historic setting that Caswell provided. Their bridal party photos were so. much. fun.
I love that it felt like it was going to rain, but it never did.
I loved their cake! Their beautiful cake with all made from scratch Amish ingredients.
I love that Jesus was the center of everything.
I love that they love to dance. And so do all their friends.
I especially love that Stuart’s grandpa (whom she was named for) swept me onto the dance floor too! (See below!)

Congratulations, Matt & Stuart, on a beautiful, Christ-centered and worship filled wedding celebration. You two are so great :].
