I felt FULL after leaving this wedding…and not the I-ate-so-much-oh-my-word kind of full, but the smiling-heart-happy full! :) Kirsten and David celebrated with a room full of love on a Sunday afternoon in August! :) They are the kind of people everyone NEEDS to know…they are joyful, they are happy, they are generous and they are full of love and life. These two oozed all day as they hugged and smiled and cried and laughed their way through their big day! :)
One of my favorite moments is when their friends and family sang them up the isle to Phil Wickham’s “Divine Romance” just after being pronounced husband and wife. The high-ceiling, urban building filled with a joyful tune that had me nearly in tears! :) They beamed as they made eye contact with many of them singing as they walked back up the isle! :) It was a perfect ending to a meaningful ceremony!
With touches of purple and navy, and silver, gold and pink….it married PERFECTLY with the urban, loft of the Aria (and awesome new venue in Minneapolis! :) And of course, because Kirsten works for TOMS, everyone HAD to be wearing some. I mean, stylish, right?! :) With lace and ribbon and wood cuts and colored bottles and beautiful textures all around, it was AMAZING! :) Her vision came to life and was a perfect backdrop for a Sunday night party of a lifetime! :)
YAY for the new Mr and Mrs Gebel! :)
“The fullness of, your grace is here with me.
The richness of, your beauty is all I see.
The brightness of, your glory has arrived.
In your presence God, I’m completely satisfied.
For you, I sing, I dance.
Rejoice in this divine romance.
Lift my heart and my hands to show my love…”
Divine Romance, by Phil Wickham! :)
