Daphne + Derrick | Chesapeake, VA

Though I still don’t really know this couple in a personal way, I feel compelled to say that I am EXTREMELY overwhelmed by how Godly this family is. Derrick, after paying a humorous “dowry” to his new sister-in-law, gave one of the most humble speeches I have ever heard. And despite a few… cultural idioms that were somewhat difficult to understand, I was incredibly blessed to hear his incredibly earnest love for Christ.  Then, the toasts from family and friends carried far more meaning than I have ever heard.  Daphne’s sister took the cake [npi] with this incredible closing: “Daphne, this is for life.”  For life.  I’ve never heard such a heartfelt comment at a wedding.  And this was no isolated incidence. It was a beautiful way to spend a Saturday night, and I pray that as they go forward, this couple truly will learn what it means to be devoted to each other.

I am so happy I was able to attend.

I have no doubt that with this man as her head, Daphne will never have to worry what is going on in his heart.
