Chelsea + Kyle | Westminister Presbyterian Church & Spartanburg Country Club Wedding

She said she had been nervous leading up to the day.  But with so many plans and details to coordinate, anyone would be nervous!  But thankfully, God eased her mind and gave her a peace that transcends all understanding so that when she woke up the morning of her wedding, Chelsea was calm and very excited about the day!

Kyle was surrounded by guys who grew up with him, walked through college with him, and currently work with him.  Guys who care about him and love him like a brother.  And to see he and Chelsea with these guys and her bridesmaids, it was more than obvious just how much they are loved.

These two met because of YoungLife, so Chelsea’s former boss (and my own YoungLife leader from high school!) performed their ceremony.  There were lots of happy tears from everyone, but what Steve reminded them about was to not let anything come between them and their marriage except for the cross of Jesus.  He is the reason they are together and so He is the only one that should ever stand between them, because He is the only one that can bring them closer together.

Thank you guys for letting us share your day with you!  Enjoy some of my favorites from their beautiful Christmas wedding!

These two wanted to pray together before the ceremony and it was so sweet to watch them talk and laugh and go to God before walking down the aisle.

Chelsea had her mom’s veil altered and it was just as beautiful on her as I’m sure it was on her mom when she wore it!


Gah!  Just gorgeous, Chelsea!
