One of the most precious things on a wedding day is watching friends and family come around a couple to celebrate them, and I think we all can say that the past few months have made that rather challenging with all of the COVID craziness we have experienced. That’s why Rebekah & Lucas decided back in June that even with everything going on, they were still going to get married – they didn’t want to wait any longer and were so aware that each and everyday brings a new set of challenges that they no longer wanted to tackle individually but together as a united team. This is why they chose to have an intimate ceremony -- or minimony or even microwedding depending on what you want to call it – the idea is the same for all three, celebrating two becoming one with your closest family & friends. This meant that the wedding celebration they had planned at Hope Glen Farms in Cottage Grove also got a bit delayed, but these two didn’t give up hope, which is what brings us to this beautiful wedding celebration here. (Ps – the treehouse is even cooler than it looks… and it has a secret room behind a book shelf!)
It’s safe to say that a lot of couples are in the same boat right now and are afraid that an intimate wedding might take away from the reception or wedding celebration later; and if Rebekah & Lucas’ wedding is a testament to this at all, it’s that it didn’t take away from the specialness. In fact, we’d have to ask them, but I might even say that it made it all the more special – the intimate wedding allowed them to excitedly enter into marriage whereas their wedding celebration allowed them to enjoy their friends & family celebrating their marriage all the more!
Our favorite parts of the day would be watching them experience the excitement all over again – yes, you heard that right! They were still unbelievably excited! They smiled deeply and had adorable jitter nerves as they approached the first look. Rebekah and Lucas both got teary-eyed as she walked down the aisle to him again and as they said their vows before all their friends & family. In fact, on the way into Hope Glen Farm’s ceremony location, you saw a photo of them from their intimate wedding day and the phrase “we still do” – which was definitely a beautiful testament to what they experienced that day – showing that even after a few months of marriage, they still do. They still choose each other. They still are asking their friends & family to encourage and build them up in their marriage. They still do.
Rebekah & Lucas, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking us along your journey! Wow, has it had quite a few turns, but you two kept your end goal of developing deep roots in Jesus as a couple through it all. Enjoy all that this stage has to bring!
