Nathan x Hilary // Glamorous Midwest Summer Stone House Wedding // St. Louis, Missouri

 A whole year later and I’ve finally gotten around to blogging this amazing wedding. I got pregnant a few weeks after this magical day, and so this whole year has been just a blur of prepping for baby # 2, hence the lack of blogs and work you’ve seen lately. Luckily, this dream job lets me take months off at a time and I get to hop back in at any time!

It probably felt like Hilary and Nathan waited an eternity for one another. Their story is one with undeniable love, and it’s inspiring. With marriages failing left and right in our society. It’s hard to pull the trigger and make a commitment, especially if you hold marriage to a high standard. I think the key in finding love is finding someone who is as equally as committed as you are. Yes, you need to be compatible, (and have the hots for each other), but if they don’t see marriage as a life-long committed relationship, no matter what happens, it’s practically impossible. 

It’s been a year since Nathan and Hilary got married, and I’m sure that they’ve already seen how difficult things can be. I believe whole-heartedly that marriage is only sustainable with the help of our God. I’m lucky to know so many couples who have not only devoted their life to serving each other in marriage, but also to knowing and serving our God. Marriage is such an amazing image of what our relationship with Christ is like. And I get to see that play out every single day in my marriage.

I’m just so thankful for the examples I have in my life who have shown me what a loving and committed relationship looks like. Growing up in a broken home, I never thought I could get married, and if I did, I knew it probably wouldn’t last. 

Praise Jesus that he redeems people and allows them to break their family patterns of sin!
