Emily's Wedding Weekend

On December 20th, I was honored to stand by my dear friend of fourteen years, sweet Emily Kyle.  In most ways it doesn't feel like it's been fourteen years since I first met her in our chapter room for a slumber party on Bid Day.  In other ways, it feels like a lifetime.  Emily is one of the craziest, most hysterical people I know but she also has such a strong heart for the Lord.  Emily and I lived together after college when most of our friends were married and we often wondered if our singleness was a season or not.  She was the one who so often encouraged me with her opera style of Great is Thy Faithfulness reminding me that God would be faithful to me, married or single.  She has such a way of turning tears into laughter.  I chose that song to walk down the aisle to as a testament to His faithfulness in my life.  Emily's season of singleness lasted a little longer, but the Lord has used her greatly during that time and I know He has big plans to continue to use her.  I'm so thankful I was able to be a part of her big day and that the Lord led her to such a wonderful, godly man.  He was worth the wait, Em!  We started off the weekend with their rehearsal and after rehearsal dinner at a beautiful lodge.

The next morning we had a Bridesmaid's Brunch at an adorable Bed & Breakfast.  Emily was glowing!
 All of the bridesmaids!

The big day!!!  Emily looked absolutely stunning and it was a beautiful ceremony.

Emily, thank you for being such a faithful friend, encourager, accountability partner, and comedian.  I can't wait to see how the Lord uses you and Hayden!  Thank you for letting me be a part of such a special time!  Love you friend!
