Todd and Laci’s Wedding

This past weekend I was honored to stand up in Todd and Laci’s wedding. Todd and I have been friends now for almost 20 years.

Rehearsal

Normally rehearsals are at the wedding venue but because the Bridal Barn had another wedding Friday night, they needed a different place for rehearsal. Todd and Laci decided to have the rehearsal dinner at the Mariner’s Inn and Betty Lou Cruise. What seemed like a decision they were forced into making turned out to be one of the best rehearsal evenings I’ve been a part of.

Wedding

I simply don’t have the pics to fully explain how beautiful the Bridal Barn is for a wedding. We are so thankful that the weather cooperated for us. I always throughly enjoy dressing up but this event took the cake because we had no jackets or ties and instead classy suspenders.

As I said before, it’s an honor to stand up in a wedding. I take marriage very seriously. The relationship between a man and a woman takes a lot of hard work and serious love and grace. Todd and I have talked about marriage a lot over the years and his patience to find Laci has been fun to watch. This weekend was too short. I didn’t have enough time to hang with his friends from Indiana, Nashville and LA. But the time I did get was wonderful. He has great friend and their willingness to travel from literally all over the country is a testimony to his personality and friendship.

Friendship (visiting Nashville)

Katie and I are looking forward to visiting Todd and Laci in Nashville sooner than later. Life is rich when friendships are thriving. I look forward to the next years of Todd and Laci’s relationship.

Those are my thoughts. What are yours?
