I’m so, so excited to share this special day. Alex is my cousin and I’ve seen her grow into such a beautiful woman over the years. It’s hard to believe that my baby cousin is now married and a mama to a sweet and OH SO squishy, one year old ( see baby with headphones down below). Cutie, right?!
Alex met Austin when she least expected it. Sound familiar? I feel like we always hear this story and as cliche’ as it may sound, there must be truth to it. However, that truth should be credited to one thing : God’s plan.
Austin pursued Alex and knew from the second he laid eyes on her, she was the one. That simple; the rest is history.
Their day was filled with many tears but even more laughs. My pop-pop stole the dance floor and I had to be careful when putting together their album because he could of easily taken up 75% of the pictures! Also, look closely and you will see that the family dog made it to the reception and our sunset portraits. That was a first 🙂
Over the years I’ve learned a lot about what Gods plan really means. It’s not our expectations of how life should be and that we can’t “mess up” His plan. He is so much bigger than us and I know I forget that ALL the time. So, what is God’s plan? It’s a journey and for us to be faithful to Him in everything we do so that we can better know ourselves and know Him. I will admit, there are days where I’m falling a part and not sure what the heck I’m doing in this life but then God shows me a glimmer of hope and I’ve reminded of His love and that is enough.
This will look so different for all of us but if we put our trust in Jesus, all things will be worked together for good. Alex and Austin’s story is a true testament.
