A Prayerful Marriage
Where does a great marriage even begin? Does anyone truly know? Well, in our complete unprofessional opinion you can tell a lot about a marriage by the way a couple chooses to pray.
When asking Meredith and Caleb the question of how we, here at The Emerson, can be praying for them as a couple, they responded with “that we would continue to grow in a Christ centered marriage.” Pondering this answer, it might come off as a quick and simple response, but this is the solid ground that any marriage can be built from. And Meredith and Caleb are doing just that.
Meredith and Caleb’s wedding began and ended with prayer, a reflection on how God has so beautifully weaved their stories together and how they will forever rejoice in his goodness and serenity. Ironic enough, Caleb and Meredith actually met at church. Yes, people, God provides at Church. Actually meeting on a day that Meredith says “was not her best day.” She states she was actually very rude to him within their first encounter. Telling herself to this day that she made it up to him though being a great friends, which eventually turned into a great spouse. God provides people! Which side note, Caleb asked Meredith out in the most Texas way possible, in front of the Fletchers Corn Dog Stand at the Texas State Fair, then naturally Meredith falling head over heels in love with him. (Corn Dog In Hand).
Describing their relationship with a passionate, quirky, and loving type of romance. The easiest way to fall in love with Caleb is through his laugh. Meredith’s words not mine. They say they fell in love with the Emerson because of the beautiful blank canvas it provided. It gave them the ability to share their love in whatever way they wanted to, and they were overjoyed by that.
A wedding is only as good as the wedding party, and my friends who decided to read this. These groomsmen and bridesmaids, were a party. They love on Meredith and Caleb so well, truly showcasing the couple’s ability to constantly run to this group of people and know they will always push the newlyweds back to each other, no matter the circumstance.
Love abundantly. That is what we learned from Meredith and Caleb. Love like God does. Meredith and Caleb, we were so lucky to showcase your love at our venue. We hope to see you in ten years with two kiddos in a house somewhere. Or at least that’s what you said your dreams were, and we will always walk alongside you there. Thankyou for all you taught us through your love story and your “best day ever.”
Go get yourselves a Fletchers Corn Dog and enjoy the life you carve out together.
