All too often the ceremony at a wedding is an afterthought anymore. The day becomes more about the details, the pictures, the video: is this right, is that right. As a creative in the industry I am probably partly to blame for that. But thankfully, this was not one of those weddings.
I've known Nick since college. We played golf together and I played all four years with his older brother and best man, Brett. They were really good friends of mine in school and two of the best guys I know. I love seeing how much each of them has grown as Brett has started a family and Nick was making a lifelong commitment to Lauren. It quickly became clear that this day was going to be about Jesus more than anything else. Lauren and Nick's heart for each other is only outdone by their heart for God.
I loved Brett's encouragement (and classic Nick stories) in his speech and the message at the ceremony was incredible. Scroll down to see some frames from the day and be sure to watch the video to experience their love for each other!
Nick's letter to Lauren had everybody crying!
Nick was only slightly embarrassed as Brett shared a few stories from their high school days.
Kari and I loved the message that was delivered. It was some of the best teaching on marriage we had ever heard!
Congrats to Nick and Lauren!
