It was such a joy and privilege to spend a beautiful spring day in Birmingham celebrating with this family. They are truly the sweetest people and it was obvious by their wedding party and guests that Callie and Gil are loved and adored. Callie’s Mom is always smiling and I wish everyone reading this blog could have heard her Dad’s precious welcome speech and prayer at the reception. It brought tears to my eyes. And so did their “Daddy’s Girl” relationship. I mean, how cute is it that the First Look with Callie’s Dad included a father-daughter chest bump that ended in a special hive five, fist bump move…a long tradition of theirs for big life moments. You’ll see…it’s priceless!! And, Gil’s reaction seeing Callie at their First Look and their gift exchange on the hilltop are two of my favorite moments from this wedding.
Callie and Gil, I wish you all the blessings and happiness in the world that stems from a marriage with Jesus at the center. You are loved.
