"A True Love Story"

I wanted to post my thoughts and feelings from Jordan's wedding before my brain forgets.   I want to always remember and cherish her wedding day and never forget ALL God did on such an incredible day.   I always thought planning a wedding for your daughter would be very stressful and never could imagine how the "big" day would go.  Would I have peace, anxiety or be extremely emotional?
The only way I can describe the actual day we experienced would be to say..., "it was a fairy tale wedding".

We began the day early at Horton Farms.  Hair and makeup began at 7 am.  By 10 am Jordan was completely transformed into the most amazing beautiful bride I have ever seen.  I walked her to the door of the "barn" that leads outside.  On the other side of the door, her groom was waiting to see her for the very first time.  The tears began to fall as I told her how much I loved her and how proud I was of her and knowing I was letting her go see the man of her dreams and the young man I had prayed for her for 24 years.   I knew at that point that this was reality and I had to let her go and a new chapter of my life was beginning.

As the door closed behind her, I could only imagine the emotions she and David were experiencing seeing each other as a bride and groom for the very first time.  I am thankful to know Bryan was there to capture that incredible moment.  I know their emotions ran away with them and many tears were shed.

The first time they saw each other.  A true love story!!!!

We arrived at the church by 12 noon and had some wonderful friends provide lunch for the bridal party and family.  Jordan stayed in the bridal suite to relax and prepare herself for the upcoming ceremony after family pictures were taken.  It's amazing how fast the day progressed as 2 pm came closer.  We heard the music begin and knew this was the time we had long been waiting for.  I remember walking in and seeing lots of people but it was hard to look around and actually see any faces.  Once I was seated, Hutch walked out with David and the 2 best men following.  When I saw David's face for the very first time, my heart melted.  I could tell he had been crying.  As the groomsmen and bridesmaids walked down the aisles, David's tears began to flow and you could tell that nothing was going to stop them for falling.  Seeing how emotional he was, caused me to become more emotional.  The doors closed at the end of the aisle and it was time for me to stand and watch my beautiful daughter be escorted down the aisle by her dad, "Tony".  Here is the song that was sung, and the doors opened when the words "Holy Bride" were sung. 

Wash Me In Water :
Wash me in the water of the Word, I lay me on the alter of Your will, Present me blameless,Without blemish, Holy Bride, White, Lord, purify Your Bride 
(Ephesians 5:26-27)
As Jordan started down the aisle to David, the tears were falling from both of their eyes.  After Tony gave her away they proceeded up to the stage with Hutch, and the ceremony continued.  Hutch did a phenomenal job with sharing how Christ will someday come back to get His church and how the picture of what God had done in David's and Jordan's life was what God intended for our lives to be at the marriage alter.

David has truly loved and respected Jordan and courted her in a way that I truly believe has honored the Lord.  Jordan's hands were the first David ever held.  He guarded their hearts, souls, body and mind by never allowing themselves to be alone in a home, at church or in a building.  I have loved watching their lives together and knowing it was as pure as God had intended.  I think David must have read the Song of Solomon  many times.  My study bible says the purpose of this book is; "to tell of the love between a bridegroom and his bride, to affirm the sanctity of marriage, and to picture God's love for his people."

The ceremony came to an end with the long awaited "first kiss".  What a shout of joy and celebration to witness such an amazing thing between a young pure couple.  I believe the angels in heaven were celebrating with all of us that day.  Hutch announced them to the crowd as Mr. & Mrs. David Street.  They walked off the stage and danced down the aisle to "Baby, You've Got What It Takes" by Michael Buble.

The bridal party pictures were taken after the ceremony, but we had to find the bride and groom first.  They had disappeared somewhere in the church.  Once they were found, the kissing carried on for almost every picture and you could tell they were loving every minute of it.  

We preceded back to Horton Farms for the reception.  Jordan was able to have her dream wedding with it ending with dancing with her groom and dad.  I couldn't have asked for a better day and more precious memories than what I experienced on that day.  I will always cherish that day in my heart and so thankful God allowed me such wonderful health to enjoy every minute. 

Bryan has a few weddings to edit before we get to see all of Jordan and David's pictures, but below are a few he posted on Facebook:

Oh how I love this girl!!!!

So proud of this little guy!!! Our Huddy!!!

"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."


  1. Wow! I am so blessed by the purity of this relationship! I am saving this post to read to my son's at the appropriate age. I want them to respect their future wife in the same way David respected Jordan! How blessed their marriage will be!! Y'all are a special family.

  2. Oh, my goodness, I'm sitting here with tears streaming down my face after reading this. Just makes my heart smile knowing there are still couples out there that "do it as God intended."

    So happy that you felt well and enjoyed every minute of the day.

    I look forward to seeing more pics.

    Blessings abundant to Jordan and David!
