My eyes fill with tears as I look at these photos.
On the long road of singleness I wished so many times I was married, years before my wedding day came. I watched friend after friend get married, and often wondered, “What about me?”
It was a twisting and turning, winding road, but God was working all things together for my good and His glory behind the scenes, preparing all to come together on this most wonderful of days and most glorious of celebrations.
My day finally came on April 23, 2016. It was a celebration of Clay’s and my love as well as a grand testament to God’s faithfulness.
When planning for my wedding day, I knew I wanted some sort of nice wooden hanger for my wedding dress. I did a bit of research and discovered an Etsy shop with custom wooden hangers.
They were so cute, I decided to get one for each of my bridesmaids as well.
And that’s when I realized something… I was in a unique and rare position as a bride: Each of my seven bridesmaids were already married.
And so I got to have a custom hanger made for each of them with their own name and their own wedding date.
It was truly a special gift to give to them. I believe there is such power in remembering back on our lives, and my desire was that each of my sweet bridesmaids would reflect on their own wedding day as they helped me and Clay celebrate ours!
God is so good. He brings beauty from ashes. He brings meaningful gifts from places in our lives that once seemed meaningless. He showed up on that day in so many big and small ways, and I love getting to remember back on that day as I help others brides with ideas for their own wedding day!

“This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3:21-24
