It was very special to have one of our favorite artists, Matt Wertz, and my cousin, Joelle May, sing at our ceremony.It was breathtaking, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the chapel.Walking down the aisle, we had Matt Wertz singing “I Will Not Take My Love Away.” It is such a beautiful song about unconditional love, and it reminds me of the love of Christ that made our relationship possible.
He laid out a blanket on the cliff and we were enjoying the views when he pulled out a book. He read the entire story to me, and at the end, he read, “On November 23rd, Taylor proposed to Farris.” I remember thinking, “When is November 23rd?? I get nervous easily and Taylor can always calm my nerves, so we decided to see each other and pray together alone before the ceremony. We started writing our vows when we happened to come across my parents’ vows and realized that they promised everything we wanted to promise to each other.
” but before I could finish my thought, he pulled me on my feet, got on one knee, and asked me to be his wife! We changed some wording in their vows and made it our own.
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? Our venue was also quite Southern, as it was a gorgeous barn on a local Nashville farm.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? God had to teach me that the wedding was not the part we needed to be most prepared for…it was the marriage.
