When a couple gets engaged, there are a few different possible reactions. If the family and friends like the significant other, everyone is happy and celebrating! If not, and you might get a less enthusiastic response when you share your big news. But no matter the situation, the wedding day itself is a magical affair, something that everyone in attendance will never forget if everything goes right.
Weddings are more than just a celebration though. They are the dedication of your love for one other person for the rest of your days. When that love is truly beautiful, it’s obvious to everyone in the room.
When Lexi and CJ were to be married, their circle of friends and loved ones couldn’t have been more excited. These two are truly in love in a way that you rarely hear about these days.
Their wedding was an emotional affair, filled with love, tears, and joy all around. It was recorded on video and turned into a heartfelt video as well, and soon you’ll have tears welling up in your eyes too!
Most people aren’t lucky enough to find their soulmate at a young age. Some never find theirs at all. But everyone should be filled with happiness when they see this beautiful couple finally tying the knot after years spent in each other’s arms.
The video went viral almost immediately and everyone couldn’t stop commenting on how beautiful the married couple is. Beyond that, the message behind the video is a powerful one that you don’t want to miss!
“Experiencing love and understanding love are two different entities,” CJ says to the crowd. “Along the journey we all go through of wanting and hoping for the right one, God transformed my heart. As scripture tells us, it’s not about waiting for the right one, it’s about being the right one.”
In a world of instant gratification, no patience, and selfish desires this sort of self-reflection is rare. But anyone who knows CJ knows that he is a deep, emotional man who is very much in touch with himself.
“As I put down the pen for the following two years and let God write the next two chapters of my life, he has blessed me with a gift from heaven far greater than I could ever fathom – you,” he continued.
No matter your current romantic struggles or successes, everyone should celebrate true love like these two have found. There is someone out there who is perfect for everybody, some just need to have a little (or a lot!) more patience than others. It can be difficult to wait, but there’s no point in trying to force the issue.
When the right person comes into your life, you’ll know it. If it’s the right time for them, chances are it will work out. If not, it simply wasn’t meant to be – no matter how difficult that truth can be to accept.
