Saturday, Aaron Courter and Mallory Powell were wedded with a beautiful ceremony. I was able to get a few shots of the wedding, though I neglected to take any later during the reception. Oops.
Kevin Turley began by reading scripture and giving a message.
The flower girls.
The beautiful bride.
The two where wedding by Mr. Powell, however, he stayed behind them and I never was able to get a shot with him in it.
Aaron's brother and Mallory's brother also shared scripture with us.
Putting on the rings.
Their first kiss...truly their FIRST kiss ever.
I always wondered why "You may kiss the bride" is still such an important part of a worldly wedding ceremony, as if they need permission to kiss...for the 1000th time.
But for Aaron and Mallory, it really was their first time. This in itself is a beautiful testimony that is it possible remain pure in our culture.
I hope to see many more weddings like this, where young people have committed their lives to serving God in their marriage with purity of heart.
