My observations have led me to believe that there are two kinds of confidence. One is arrogant and loud and is usually used to cover fear. The other is quiet and strong and does not cover fear because there is no fear to cover. This second type of confidence provides a glimpse into the heart of those who possess it. It reveals a sense of steady intentionality, of prayerful assurance, of unwavering commitment, and as this confidence applies to relationships, it reveals of a love that is deeply rooted in Grace, and prepared to stand the test of time. That is the type of confidence that both Matt and Katie beamed with on the morning of their wedding. The location was breathtaking, the ceremony like a fairy tale, and the reception a blast, but I could tell that for Matt and Katie, starting life together as husband and wife was infinitely more important than any detail of the day.
It was obvious that many hours of hard work had been put into the preparation for the wedding festivities, and the hard work paid off! But even more importantly, it was obvious that many more hours had been spent by Matt and Katie preparing to become husband and wife, and to truly understand and savor the joy of entering into that covenant with confidence. Matt and Katie were married at Lauxmont Farms in Wrightsville, Pennsylvania. The ceremony took place in a field on top of a hill overlooking horse pastures and the Susquehanna River. Katie and her dad were driven in elegantly in a classic horse drawn carriage. The floral arrangements and hand-crafted decorations were perfectly placed and yellow details created a bright and summery atmosphere. After a cocktail hour in the Japanese Garden, guests were free to enjoy lawn games and dance into the night.
Matt and Katie, thank you so much for allowing me to help you celebrate the start of your life together as Mr and Mrs Sol. You two are an encouragement to so many, and I wish you the best as you settle in to your new home. Hannah and I will be looking forward to seeing you soon! I hope you enjoy seeing these, and I can’t wait for you to see the rest!
Thanks for grabbing this awesome shot, Hannah!
I have to post this last one because if I don’t, my brother (3rd from left) will hound me asking me where it is.
Okay, I admit it Ben, you got some pretty serious air!
