HANNAH + JAMES | A meaningful celebration of love and life
“We thought it would be so sad to have all of the people we love in this room and not share this story with you.” - James Craycraft
What a story James chose to tell. Each detail of his and Hannah’s wedding day was crafted with intentionality, weaving together the story of their love and the story of ultimate Love.
I watched James earnestly look into the eyes of his and Hannah’s gathered friends and family. Soon, he would look into Hannah’s eyes and vow to choose her. But first, he invited the audience to choose Jesus, maybe for the first time or the eight hundredth time. He did this because, for James, Jesus is the only reason that he could ever begin to choose Hannah. He is the one who will enable James to choose her over and over again.
In the beaming smiles of both James and Hannah, laughing from the overflowing joy and excitement in their hearts, it was obvious that their lives abound in grace and gratitude. The people who loved them looked back with pride, elated to behold such a moment. Gratitude filled the room. Gratitude for who Hannah and James are and gratitude for the community that shaped them.
Hannah and James made a decision to exchange vows to choose the other over themselves. More importantly, they vowed to love the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit with all that they have.
It was a privilege to watch Hannah and James live this out, from the beginning as they anticipated many years until the end.
It was a beautiful thing to behold.
I am so grateful.
