Matthew and Hannah’s lavender and navy winter wedding was not only beautiful, but it perfectly represented them and their love for each other. The toasts that were given by the best man, maid-of-honor (Hannah’s sister), and by her father all reflected the love between the bride and groom and their devotion to the Lord. Their wedding was beautiful just like they are. Their attention to detail was so sweet, but it was their thoughtfulness towards others that clearly stood out. It was their day, but they wanted others to feel loved and cared for. Their love for the Lord is strong and their faithfulness to Him was evident to anyone who attended their wedding. And as family and friends joined their voices together, the chapel rang with the singing of “Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee” in praise to God for what He had brought together.
This amazing couple first became acquainted through an online dating site where their first meeting soon led to many other dates and countless hours spent together. While Matthew teaches music and Hannah elementary kids, they both share the same love for teaching and using their talents to serve others. And they do it well! On going over the timeline, Hannah wanted to make sure there was time to spend with their students immediately following the ceremony so they could pass out cookies and be able to greet each one personally.
If you know Hannah and Matthew, you know how sweet and kind they both are! Hannah radiated a smile the entire day that was infectious and beautiful just like she is. And Matthew can SING! I seriously thought a recording was playing when I heard him and his groomsman practicing before the ceremony. These two compliment each other in so many ways and I love how happiness just exudes from them and their love for each other. And, like Hannah’s dad said during his toast, as long as they keep Christ at the center of their marriage, that joy and love will always be there even during the tough times.
Matthew & Hannah, thank you so much for letting us be part of your day!! We have loved getting to know you both and look forward to always having this friendship with you! We love you both and wish you many years of happiness! And now, enjoy a preview of your lavender and navy winter wedding!
