Megan + David get hitched!

What can we say? We love Megan + David and couldn't be happier that they are enjoying marital bliss together now. They have an awesome love story, and out of all the Fab 5 couples they've been together the longest (approaching six years now! Yeah, I know.) And the Clays have a special place in our heart because the Lord used David to inspire Kyle to become a physical therapist. Kyle is now almost finished with his first semester at the Medical College of Georgia, all thanks to a divinely-appointed conversation with David four years ago. So thanks guys!

As alluded to earlier, Megan + David have been together since our junior year of high school, and I’ve had the privilege of watching them grow into a beautiful and godly couple. I’ve been so encouraged by their love and commitment to each other. So to say they were ecstatic on July 17 when they finally became husband and wife would be an understatement. And just to further ingrain the longevity of their relationship, here’s a throwback pic to Youth Camp 2006 [Megan on the far left and David in the black tee]:

Now on to the loverly-ness of their wedding weekend!

For Megan's last night out, let's just say we went on a tour-de-downtown Athens.

The next day, we bridesmaid luncheoned-it-up at the Magnolia Cottage and Gardens in Stone Mountain.

What was on the menu you ask? Well I'm so glad you did. Only delicious goodness with a little side of perfection I say! Actually, it was a choice between chicken crepes with portabella mushrooms and something else less awesome, with chocolate mousse and a Mimosa to top it off. Mmm mmm we were spoiled!

As if that wasn't good enough already, for our bridesmaid gifts we got the most DARLING skirt aprons with our initials embroidered on one of the pockets, all made with love by Megan's mom. Get outta town.

And, by the way, we're sexy.

We kicked it southern style with some BBQ for the rehearsal dinner. Obviously you never get too old for the spoon-on-the-nose picture.

Only hours away from being Mr. and Mrs. Clay!

I am so blessed to have four such wonderful women of God as my best friends.

And all of a sudden it was wedding day! They held their ceremony at the church we grew up in, First Baptist Church of Loganville, and the reception took place at the gorgeous and elegant Vines Mansion. Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the day:

Jayne Sinclair of I Do Flowers did a fabulous job on the flowers. Megan's bouquet looks so yummy!

This is my favorite shot from Megan's photog, Kendall Hudgins Photography. Check out Megan + David's blog post for some more of their wedding eye candy! (P.S. Their getaway car was a Stingray Convertible. Totes jel.)

And they lived happily ever after! :)

He has withheld no good thing

God has taught me so much this summer, especially how to see Him in everything, even in the small things. These are some of my favorite pictures from the past month, and I think they perfectly capture how the Lord wants to demonstrate His beautiful presence in every part of our life.

This was taken at Kyle's childhood best friend's wedding on June 19. I just love the joy that is evident on their faces! (Even though, I'm always interested to know what the couple is talking about during their first dance. For Kyle + me, we were slightly caught off guard by our DJ playing the acoustic version of our song, and we had to figure out how to adjust to the pretty much nonexistent beat. And I know for the Mintons, Julie was sweetly whispering "I'm going to kill you!" because seconds earlier Doug accidentally stepped on her dress and ripped part of the bustle off. So I wonder what Andy + Kallie's story will be!)

Mom and I hosted a bridal shower for Megan just two weeks before her and David's big day, and it was such a blessing to catch up with old friends.

Kyle surprised me with a stay at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead for my birthday, and we had so much fun! It was very very nice to have some "just us" time, and just know the importance God places on rest and how it sustains us (Psalm 91:1).

We spent the Fourth at Lake Oconee, and the Homrichs were able to join us! The weekend went by way too fast, but we were so glad to hang out with Andy + Jami and my family.

And of course I can't leave out the Brodster. He gets cuter and cuter every time we see him. Puppies are such a blessing from the Lord, it's impossible to be unhappy around them!

My next post will be all things Megan + David's wedding, so get ready for some vibrant summer colors and a stunning bride!
