My Friend’s Wedding

As millennial women, the conversations have finally shifted to more adult-focused goals. Of course, we still plan to travel the world and be fabulous for the rest of our days, but we’ve added a bit more substance to the context of our conversations. At 28, I find myself seeking truth in the midst of the many tales being told to us throughout the media. One of those is the fact that black love is real. It is not a fairytale, it’s an actual thing and it can be experienced by ALL OF US! That is, if you’re willing to believe in love… love conquers all.

Love Conquers All.

Love is an emotion that can be felt in practically anything in life. The most valuable of them all, in my objective opinion, is the union God brings about between a man and a woman, in the form of marriage. This past weekend was simply beautiful. I witnessed my friend, Courtnie, as a bride as she said “I do,” to her groom, Jonathan. This year, I’ve been apart of their journey down the aisle and every memory led up to this past Saturday.

I am still trying to find the words to express my sincere appreciation of Courtnie & Jonathan’s love story, and how God is so ABLE! In the midst of any storm, any challenge, any relationship: love conquers all.

Friends, family, dreams, and hobbies can all channel that feeling of an everlasting love…..
