Mandy + Joey: A BGP Highlight Film from Destin, Florida

"Be careful not to complain about anything, even the weather, since I am the Author of your circumstances. The best way to handle unwanted situations is to thank Me for them."

-taken from the opening paragraph of Mandy's daily devotional on her wedding day

The beaches along Highway 30A in Florida are known for their amazing beauty; clear water and white sand as far as the eye can see. It's the perfect backdrop for a wedding, and Mandy and Joey traveled from Northern California to celebrate their love together with friends and family.

As with any outdoor wedding weather has to be a considered. As the morning turned to afternoon dark clouds loomed. The wind picked up and the decision was made to start the ceremony a little earlier than planned. Everyone gathered at the beach and witnessed the wedding ceremony as the clouds rolled in from the west. There wasn't a dry eye on the beach during their emotional, personal vows. Within 10 minutes of the ceremony ending the rain started coming down. It was a pretty close call, but after about 45 minutes of light rain everything dried up and the celebration continued.

It's amazing when everything just works out on a wedding day. Despite a few changes to the timeline Mandy and Joey's wedding was an amazing success. We can't help thinking that daily devotional passage definitely had something to do with it.
