It took a lot of planning and a lot of dear friends that helped us to pull the wedding together. But seriously, if it wasn’t for YOU, my friends, it wouldn’t have been as wonderful as it was.
For Jean-Philippe the day started off normal. “ I am not worrying about anything”, he said,“ I just want to enjoy.” I Sarvia, the bride, had to be at the salon along with the bridesmaids and the mothers to do hair and makeup. Thankfully, I still wasn’t nervous at all.
Once I was ready we made our way to the YWAM base where I began to get ready. As soon as I got there, I went straight into one of the rooms so I wouldn’t be seen by the groom. It was around 3:30pm when I was ready to go and get married but I also started to feel butterflies on my stomach. Then we all drove to the church where my lovely now husband was waiting for me along with all our friends and family that came to celebrate with us.
I got out of the car and was ready to start walking down the ale. It was then where I got SO NERVOUS thinking- omg everyone is looking at me! what if I fall as I am walking down? – But I made it safe to the front where Jean-Philippe was with a big smile. The ceremony went well. It was a great time to thank God for bringing us together.
The ceremony was followed with the reception at the YWAM facility. Thanks to many YWAM fellows, the place looked amazing; everything was just as we wanted it to be.
The reception was so much fun. There were a lot of dear friends and family that made our big day special. People singing, dancing, reciting poems, laughing, it was just AMAZING!
We are thankful to God for giving us that special day where we could celebrate that coming together! God is good!
