Weddings were a big part of my 2015. There were lots of weddings that I attended last year and one of the highlight is easily to witnessed one of my sisters marries the love of her life. To be honest, as the eldest, you can't help but to worry about your siblings, right? Well, at least I'm that kind of person anyway. There were millions of questions and worries that went through my mind since they started dating, really, and even more so the closer it gets to their wedding day. Plus, since all of us lived in different cities at different times in our lives, I didn't really get to see the two of them interact as a couple very often, except for special occasions when we are all in the same city at the same time. (This situation didn't help either)
But this past year—especially these past couple of months—having been involved in the wedding preparation process, I think I actually get to know a lot more about Timmy and about them as a couple, even more so than the last 6 years when they were dating. I saw them interact with each other, handling various situations during the wedding preparation, and get to know more about them as a person and also as a couple through their close friends, who were a big part of their wedding day. I think I understand why God has brought the two of them together because even though they are sometimes a complete opposite of each other, but—as cliché as it sounds—they are very compatible with each other.
With that, I'm never good with words, but here it goes:
To Jenni, my beloved sister and my best friend, I couldn't be happier for you that you've met the man that God has made for you. I'm so beyond grateful that I could be a part of your big day(s). I'm sure that you have heard millions of marriage advices from others, but the one thing I hope that'll always stick with you is to keep Christ as the center of your marriage. I can only wish you a lifetime of happiness, a blessed & fruitful marriage, and so you may grow old together with Timmy.
And to Timmy, I'm so happy to welcome you to be a part of the family and to be my brother (as you know, I never had one so I think this is exciting :P). Couldn't imagined a better man to be Jenni's life partner and I wish you'll follow after Christ to be the head of the family with Him as the center. And congratulations on finally ending the whole LDR thing :) Now you get to spend the rest of your life together with her. Yeay!
Anyways, I think I'm better at expressing my feelings through the lens instead of words. So here's the last post for Timothy & Jennifer's engagement session. Congratulations on your wedding guys! Love you tons! :)
Here's another video that I made with their friends, sharing about who Timmy & Jenni are to them and their messages for the happy couple on their on big day:
