Oh well, I am writing today to let you know that Megan is enjoying her new life in Nashville, TN with her husband, Nathan Johnson. Yes, in case you haven't heard, after a year of courtship, Megan married her new best friend, Nathan Johnson on Saturday, October 29, 2011, in Nashville, TN.
Megan is not a traditionalist and did not want the traditional wedding. So an outside wedding in the backyard of my sister and brother-in-love's place in Nashville, TN was planned for October 29th. My biggest fear was that weather at the end of October was very unpredictable. As October rolled on we had one beautiful day and Saturday after another. Could these good days last one more week. Megan believed that if God could give her a heart, He could give her a beautiful wedding day. I believed that, but wasn't sure if God thought the weather was as important as a life that needed a new heart.
Wednesday before the wedding, the weather began to change. By Thursday the temp was dropping and rain was falling. The outside rehearsal was held inside because it was pouring outside and the temp was nearing 40 degrees. The weather forecast was good for Saturday, but it wasn't looking too promising. We did what we could to prepare for the wedding, went to bed around mid-night, and trusted God for a beautiful wedding day.
Saturday morning, Kathie and I woke at 6am to begin decorating the tables. I went outside first and found that besides a very heavy frost, all the rain that had fallen the day before, had frozen and all the tables were covered in ice. For two and half hours I used kitchen tools and a blow dryer to break the ice and dry the tables so friends and family could help us get the table clothes on and prepared for a 12 noon wedding. At 8:30 is was still only 35 degrees, but the tables were getting decorated and we decided we could deal with the cold. The sun was up and shinning through a misting fog which made for some beautiful early morning pictures. By 11am temperatures were rising, everything was looking beautiful. God was giving us that perfect day.
At 12 noon, the wedding party began the procession and then Megan and I appeared from behind to hand held antique doors and walked down the grass isles. The sun was shining brightly, the temp was a very comfortable 60 some degrees and Megan's wedding day was in her words, "This is more beautiful than I even imagined it to be." (picture link below)
God came through again for our precious Megan.
