G + L got hitched!

August 9, 2011 § 1 Comment

This past weekend, we had the privilege of watching two dear friends get married. Lee Adams played the keys at our wedding and has been a dear friend since meeting at the City Church. We’ve had memories with Lee of cooking Rachael Ray recipes together, carpooling to Portland for the YP getaway, and many after-church pho lunches! We knew when he kept talking about this “Gretchen-girl” from Mars Hill that she was something special. At the wedding, they had guests from both Mars Hill and the City Church which was awesome to see friends from both places!


Gretchen put a tremendous amount of effort into making their wedding very special for their guests. Upon arrival, we were to put our prints (fingerprints) on the tree. Such a unique idea for their guest book!

A favor table presented matchboxes and birdseed feeders to hang in a tree

 As Gretchen walked down the aisle, the guests spontaneously started singing “How Great Thou Art” to the music, serenading her and worshiping God. It was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever seen at a wedding.

 The wedding party surprised the happy couple with a semi-coordinated dance. It was definitely fun and G+L loved it!

    Wow, wonderful pictures. You really captured the night. I said this already, but thank you so much for being apart of our day. We loved having you there, even if we couldn’t spend a lot of time with you (or anyone for that matter!). To God be the glory : )
