On the afternoon of July 28th, Heidi’s niece Sasha was ready to walk Heidi down the aisle.
It was Heidi + Scott’s Wedding Day!
Guests were in their seats, and family members were lining up:
and Scott was standing in front of all of his loved ones, waiting for the Bride.
As the anticipation was building, Scott embraced his parents warmly,
And the sound Heidi + Scott’s friends playing music signaled the beginning of the processional:
Finally, the time had come!
Isn’t Heidi absolutely beautiful?!
After Josh led a moment of prayer,
Heidi + Scott joined together in front of their family and community, under the shady trees by the lake.
It was a peaceful, gentle moment on their Wedding Day.
Throughout the ceremony, Heidi’s smile radiated joy. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen her smile like she did that day!
As Heidi + Scott shared their vows, Scott was tearful – a reminder to everyone present of the significance and sacredness of the day:
Is there anything more meaningful than intentional, thoughtful, and steadfast people committing to love one another in sickness and in health?
Just as the tears came easily at Heidi + Scott’s Wedding, so did laughter.
When a gust of wind unexpectedly wrapped lace streamers around them, they paused and enjoyed the spontaneous interruption.
Heidi + Scott’s openness to playfulness, finding enjoyment is simple moments…
is utterly life-giving to everyone around them.
Moments later, Josh pronounced Heidi + Scott husband and wife.
And their first act in marriage?
Serving Communion to parents..
And grandparents, and friends.
And then they shared a kiss!
Before walking back down the aisle hand in hand, Scott looked at Heidi,
and gave her a giant bear hug.
This is what love looks like when it overflows.
Without hesitation, Scott and Heidi turned to Josh and gave him a hug, too -
And then exited the ceremony with applause, as Mr. and Mrs. Haskins!
Two weeks ago at church, I met an old friend of Heidi’s.
“Oh, you know Heidi + Scott?” I blurted out,
“They’re two of the best people I know!”
With a glimpse into their Wedding Day, I’m sure you’ll agree.
