Micah & Ashley's beautiful, Christ-Centered Wedding in East Texas

Micah and Ashley's Wedding in Texas Photographer by Sarah Noel Photography

What a special day filled with so many sweet moments and emotions. It was like the closing of one book in a series and yet the beginning of another. In order to see the amazing beauty that God brought out of the pain, I need to tell you a little back story. Ashley has such a heart to serve the Lord wherever He leads. Several years ago, she and her husband, Luke, were serving on the mission field with their three girls when Luke went to be with his Savior in a plane crash. As Luke’s sister and Ashley’s sister-in-law, it was so hard to watch Ashley go through that season. But I also got to see how God faithfully carried them and lead them through the pain to His loving arms.

Two years after Luke’s passing, the Lord brought Micah into Ashley’s life through a mutual friend. They grew closer together, and it became clear to them that they were meant for each other. On a beautiful humid day in Texas on August 21st, they were joined together to serve and love one another as Christ has loved them. A filled with tears and so much joy!

Through getting to be a part of their day as their photographer, I got to see their heart for serving the Lord and each other so beautifully. My favorite moment of the whole day was during the ceremony when Micah and Ashley were washing each other feet as a symbol of their desire to sacrificially serve one another just as Christ has served us. As Micah was finishing washing Ashley’s feet, unexpectedly, their little girls tiptoed up there. Then Micah displayed the action of servanthood as he washed each of their feet too. All who were watching were holding back tears at the beautiful picture of the gospel.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “He has made everything beautiful in its time”. God beautifully turned a painful story into one of beauty. It was beautiful to see Micah and Ashley serve one another as they entered into marriage. And may the Lord keep adding beauty to each day.

Love Sarah Noel
