Erik & Michelle's Wedding

May 30th was one of the most memorable and special days of my life! I had the privilege, joy, and honor of marrying my little sister to such a great guy. Michelle and Erik were high school sweethearts, so even though their combined age once they married was only 41, they had dated for over 5 years.

The wedding was a family affair to say the least…I performed it, Holly coordinated it, the kids participated in it, the matron of honor was my older sister, brother-in-law was a groomsman, and parents were all smiles.

Out of everything I get to do in life nothing comes closer to touching heaven than performing a marriage--it is the foreshadowing of the marriage of the Bridegroom God, Jesus, to His bride, the Church…the first event that takes place once the Lord returns is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

"Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready. It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Then he said to me, ‘Write, blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’ And he said to me, ‘These are true words of God.’”
(Revelation 19:7-9)
