Tyler had been tearing up since the rehearsal the night before, watching Julia walk down the aisle on her father’s arm. He must have smoothed and re-tucked his shirt a thousand times. He wanted everything to be perfect for her, right down to the lack of wrinkles on his white dress shirt.
The forecast that day called for thunderstorms. But when Julia arrived at the church, protected from the sprinkling rain by an umbrella, she was smiling. Because as much as she wanted outdoor photos, all that really mattered was marrying Tyler. And when the rain cleared up, and the sun came out, and the warm church building got even warmer, she sat serenely on a pew. The heat didn’t matter either. In a few minutes she would see her groom and then they would promise their lives to each other.
And promise they did. Promises to respect and cherish each other. Promises to fill their home with love and joy. Promises of constant support for each other. Promises to build each other up instead of tearing down. Promises of love and faithfulness in good times and bad. Promises to make Christ the center of their marriage and to love and serve after His example.
