Every couple that invites me to be a part of their wedding day is so dear to my heart. But this one is even more special. I met Russell at a Christian conference about four years ago in September, and it’s been amazing to watch his continual growth in Christ, abundant love for others, and heart for a lifestyle of ministry. This last year he told us he was bringing his girlfriend to the conference.
When I met Shani, it was immediately clear that they were perfect for each other in a million ways. He’s extroverted, energetic, and passionate, she’s introverted, sincere, and had such a warm and caring heart for everyone she met. This March, I had the honor of documenting them enter into the covenant of marriage. Their wedding was perfect in so many ways, from the Christ exalting corporate worship, the rich message, the many speeches at the reception that bore testimony of the love and impact these two have made on so many. I couldn’t be happier for them, and I’m excited for all the Lord has planned to do through their marriage for their family, their community, and the Kingdom.
