Noah & Hannah’s Luxe Tropical Wedding at Benvenuto and The Brazilian Court Hotel, Florida
"All of this was for us! God is so good! He is so huge!"
Noah kept repeating these words all day long. He was so excited for this day. Over the last 6 months, they have been faced with more pain and challenges than many couples have had to face after years of marriage. But the grace of God and the prayers of the righteous brought them, alive and joyful, to their wedding.
"Blessings in the rain" has been Hannah's mom's motto through her horrible battle with a rare form of cancer over the last 6 months. Noah even wore a shirt that morning with the phrase on it. So it was only fitting for a rain storm to blow in off the ocean at the exact moment when Hannah was about to walk down the aisle! The wonderful staff at Benvenuto transported the whole ceremony inside within minutes, and they had both an air-conditioned ceremony and beautiful portraits in the courtyard after the storm blew over.
Some of our favorite moments are below. Getting ready at one of the finest historic hotels in the world; their First Look, when he surprised her with a journal that God told him to start writing for her a month after they started dating; a dance with Hannah, her mom, her dad, and Noah that had us weeping; an INSANE dance party; and a grand finale all alone in the courtyard under the string lights and the stars.
Hannah and Noah, we've truly been honored to be along for your journey. We wish you guys all the riches of shalom on your marriage and incredible blessings for the decades to come. And that no matter the rain - literal, figurative, or spiritual - that is to come, we pray that through it all you are able to say once again, "All of this is for us! God is so good! He is so huge!" On the days when it’s hard to see the blessing, may these images be a testimony to how big and good our God truly is.
