i met with Brad & Christy last fall, and from the very beginning, i could see the connection they had with one another. Over Chipotle, they told me how they met. They both worked at Macy’s one sumer,  and their friends would tease them that they were “a match made in Macy’s” They are a perfect match. Beautiful Christy with her sweet nature, and Brad with his infectious grin and obvious adoration for the love of his life. They dated for 9 months, and then Brad asked her father for her hand at a UC game.  On June 17th, God united them in a beautiful ceremony.  What a privilege to be there for it! Congratulations to the Powers, you guys are amazing!

Brad surprised Christy with this little envelope necklace that carries a little note that says, “I love you”. He also added his own “note”.

Their first look was so touching. Brad was totally overwhelmed by his glorious bride. Tears of joy and amazement that he was this lucky.

When you are a guest at a wedding, you are invited to witness a miracle.
