A little bit country, a little bit rock n roll. That’s what the song says. After spending a good deal of time with Mary and Lawrence, I think it’s an appropriate description for these two, but not in a cheesy Osmonds kind of way. No, in a down-home, unbelievable connection to each other, I’m gonna love you forever and ever, amen kind of way.
There are so many moments throughout this wedding that I’ll carry with me. Some of the images might not mean as much to those of you who weren’t there, so I will point a few out. The mom scrubbing a stain out of a bridesmaid dress before the day started, demonstrating the sacrificial servanthood mothers show on a daily basis. The lost loved one, memorialized in a locket on her bouquet. The reassurance and steady presence of dad, when the pressure of the day becomes a reality. The church, celebrating 100 years. So many moments remembered… that’s the holy grail when I go through my weddings. If I remember them, I know they will, too, even as they share with their future grand kids. Forever and ever, amen.
