Neil and Trisha's unique wedding ceremony was caught on camera and is now going viral. Just after Neil and Trisha Swan exchanged their wedding vows, something very unexpected happened.
As the officiant was singing 'How Great Thou Art', they started hearing sounds from the wedding guests. The bride turned around and realized that the someone had instructed local celebrities to chime in on this special song.
As you watch, you can the singers all join together for their pre-planned rendition. Trisha was overcome with emotion and you can see her joyfully crying from the sweet gesture.
I really appreciate how respectful they were with this impromptu performance being inside of a church. They clearly understood that the surprise needed to be executed very tastefully. And I think they nailed it! Well done and God bless Neil and Trisha's new marriage.
Weddings always bring out a lot of emotions. . . and tissues! As Tami Acree started her walk down the aisle, her eyes fell upon her groom's tie. And it brought back a memory from college, long before she'd met her husband-to-be. And seeing God's Hand in something as simple as a neck tie is truly powerful!
Tami wrote about the beautiful moment on Facebook, in a post that has since gone viral!
"That is a very specal tie. When I was a sophomore in college, I was challenged to purchase a tie and hang it in my room to remind me to pray for my future husband.
For 7 years, it hung on my bed or my dresser mirror and more times than I can count it led me to pray God would encourage, grow, and spiritually develop my someday husband into the man of God I desired. I always meant to give it to my husband as a momento on our wedding day.
The night before our wedding, I was with my girls and went to wrap it and we realized it was navy blue, grey, and pink. Our 3 wedding colors! (And it wasn't on purpose, I was originally thinking mint or yellow as the accent color.)
I had such a special moment with the Lord.
He knew even before I bought that tie 7 years ago that Caleb was the man I was praying for and He orchestrated it in His perfect timing! I didn't tell Caleb to wear it, I just gave it to him like I always meant to.
And as I'm walking down the aisle towards him, one of the things I will always remember is seeing Caleb and seeing he is wearing my prayer-soaked tie."
How's that for powerful?! Our God is faithful, and His signs are all around us. We just need to look for them.
"And this shall he the sign unto thee from the LORD, that the LORD will do this thing that he hath spoken:" Isaiah 38:7
