Weddings never fail to make me cry, but this wedding had my eyes watering from the get-go. The water works began for me just a few moments after Jessie’s mother and sister tenderly helped her into the bridal gown. As Jessie was putting on her shoes, her father surprised us all by entering the room! The joy in both of their eyes said it all, and mine quickly began to leak as they came together for an embrace.
The entire day was full of precious moments just like this one. Every single detail was personally tied to our bride and groom in one meaningful way or another. For instance, the beautiful floral designs were created by the Jessie’s sweet cousin (Kylie, of Kyflora) who traveled up from California for this special day. And to top it all off, Ben and Jessie were lovingly married to one another by the bride’s darling father, Rob, in the same place where her older sister was also married by him three years prior. Rob is the lead pastor of Calvary Corvallis – the church Jessie has attended all her life – and where she has now officially tied the knot.
