Isaac failed in his attempt to hold back tears as his beautiful bride came down the aisle on the arm of her dad. That’s because on December 2, 2023, he had already loved her for 421 days.
If you’re wondering how I know that, it’s because one of the beautiful gifts Isaac gave Chloe on their wedding day said exactly that. Photographing them open their wedding gifts was sweet, because each of them was visibly touched by the sincerity of what their soulmate had given them. Chloe gifted Isaac a Bible with a sweet personal note inside and specific scriptures marked throughout. His reaction made us all wipe our eyes a bit. Isaac gave Chloe a darling anklet and a hand drawn photo that also showed his deep devotion to her. They will cherish these gifts in the years to come, because they are a reminder of how precious the gift of love truly is.
Chloe married Isaac on her family farm, in her dad and uncle’s newly constructed barn. It looked effortlessly beautiful, but oh man, I know the opposite was true. Chloe’s mom flocked what looked like a stunning forest of Christmas trees. Everywhere I looked, touches of Christmas and snow warmed my soul. I know that this The entire space was a carefully planned breath-taking winter wonderland, complete with a coffee bar. If you love all the beautiful aspects of winter like I do, it was an afternoon of the best atmosphere ever! And the happiness of the bride and groom and their friends and family was the perfect completion of the day. I suppose in reality, it’s the other way around. The beautiful atmosphere was the perfect completion of the Chloe and Isaac’s love.
