Despite the craziness in the sanctuary the afternoon of Tessa and Aaron's wedding, the Lord gave Tessa the gift of a few special moments with some of those to whom she has been close.
Here she's pictured with Emily, a friend of eight years, as Emily adjusts a curl.
Emily is a new bride herself. She and Jon were just married in January. Like Aaron and Tessa, they also courted before marrying. Their strong love, blossoming romance and sweet friendship are a joy to watch (and photograph!).
Mr. Beaver and I know that the two sets of newlyweds will be an encouragement to each other as they learn to deny self (Luke (9:23) and love sacrificially in the framework of marriage.
