Weddings

Tonight Derek and I went to a b-e-a-u-tiful wedding for my college friends Ryan and Danielle.
It was so perfectly them. I love that. It's so great when you go to a wedding and you feel like it really represents the people who were getting married.

Our 1 year wedding anniversary is quickly approaching. It's just 8 days away! When I think back to it, I know it represented us then, even though I think now there are things (just a couple) that I would change about our wedding. Nothing big, just color scheme or the tuxes the groomsmen wear. But one thing I don't think I'd ever change is our wedding music. I loved it. It felt like us.

None of it was traditional music. The wedding party processed in to "Falling Slowly" by Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova from the Once soundtrack.


I walked down the aisle to Coldplay's "The Scientist"


"Better Than Wine" by Derek Webb was sang in our ceremony


and we walked out to Bright Eyes "First Day of My Life"


When people ask about our wedding, that's what I want to tell them. We had an awesome wedding soundtrack. Maybe I'll share more this week about our wedding. But that also might not happen. I'm not exactly consistent with this whole blog thing as you know.

If Dani Mac and Ryan are half as happy as Derek and I have been this past year, then they are lucky people. Their minister (and my former college professor) said in his homily tonight that they were really entering into one of God's great miracles and I completely agree.

Good stuff

Just as he did in this post, Jon Acuff over at Stuff Christians Like has hit another home run with his Serious Wednesday post. His posts on other days always make me laugh, but these Wednesday ones remind me of some pretty powerful things. Go check it out HERE!



And if you ever just want a good chuckle check out the rest of the website.

P.S. Things are good here on the home front. I know I haven't posted recently, but that's nothing new and I don't want to throw anyone off by posting too frequently.
