Sometimes there is no better description of two people being perfect for one another than simply stating that it seems as if their souls were woven together by the hands of their Divine Father. Samuel and Rachel are a beautiful example of this. Their ease, peacefulness, and natural joy that manifests from them for each other is such a wonder to behold. Their friendship, companionship, and love for each other are undoubtedly and inspiring.
Their wedding day, one that could cause much chaos and stress, was one of laughter, tears of happiness, and calmness. In her gorgeous dress and her handmade long laced veil, Rachel truly shined. Samuel’s face during their first look, said it all. Sweet sincerity embraced them as they embraced each other. Their ceremony was one of reverence toward the Lord and toward the holy covenant that they knew they were making. Rachel’s father walked them through their vows and declared a beautiful benediction over their marriage.
The celebration was filled with sweet details and the excitement of cake, outdoor games, and light dancing. No better grand exit than that of Samuel sweeping Rachel off her feet and carrying her through showers of rose petals and bubbles. They waved goodbye from an old fashioned antique car and off they were into the new chapter of marriage.
Samuel and Rachel were married on June 8, 2019, at First Baptist Church of Jackson in downtown Jackson, Mississippi.
