I Do: Part 2 {The Video}

Before I go into today’s post I want to share something with you.

Our friend and mentor, Harold, emailed us and said: “Did you have the Vow Renewal at a Horse barn on PURPOSE?” 

  Then he attached this:

  2 very valuable, broken horses in the field next to the horse barn we renewed our vows in. 

Our jaws hit the floor. 

NO, we hadn’t planned it that way. 

We simply wanted a more casual venue then a church, and a vintage barn style renewal appealed to me.

  Do you remember why “broke” and horses mean so much to us?

Go read The Dream, then you’ll see why! 

   Only God could orchestrate something this cool.  To HIM be all praise and glory and honor!  For what we see as just strings, He sees as a beautiful tapestry.

  On to the post:  The video!  YAY!

  I specifically hired a professional videographer, rather than having someone run my home video camera, for you. 

  And for me.  But you were a lot of it.  :)

  I thought it only fair since I shared my ashes with you, that you get to share in the Beauty part, too.

  Deanna and her husband, from Today for Tomorrow Productions did an AMAAAAZING job!  They were so kind, and went the extra mile.  They were very good about answering emails and communicating with us before our big day. I highly recommend them!  {You will see why in a second!}


  So today, I am sharing first a Highlights clip, then the full video, divided into several videos since youtube only allows 20 minutes at a time. I understand the full video may not appeal to you, but watch as little or as much as you desire, and praise the Lord with us, for what He has done.

  1. love it! God is good! Praying that the Lord rebuilds your marriage into a thing more beautiful than it was before! into something you could never imagine! Work in their marriage and family Lord! Forgiveness is such a beautiful thing that we rarely get to see glimpses of anymore and you forgive with such grace and love. Truly a move of God for restoration. God bless you all!

  2. Oh Tonya, this was beautiful. I watched all three!! It’s the final touch of your story of beauty from ashes. Thank you for sharing. I think all married couples should renew their vows!! To remember why they chose each other in the beginning and to also remember everything their spouse has done right for we tend to narrow our perspective when things don’t go according to our expectations. Only Christ can do the transformation and it’s clear that He is present in both of your hearts today!!

    Love to you and Dale. Blessings!!

  3. COULD.NOT.HAVE.BEEN.SWEETER! It’s a whole kleenex box worth of joy & tears watching this elaborately beautiful ceremony. Loved seeing your expressions…hearing your voices (Kasey’s too!=). I know God is going to shower you with His greatest and best because you put your trust in Him and His Word. Thank you SO much for letting us have a peek into this very special time of your lives. LOVE YOU ALL TRULY! XO

  4. That was just beautiful. Every little detail was just beautiful. It is just amazing what the Lord has done in both of you in a years time. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful example of fighting for your marriage. So many people just give up so quick. But you show that there really is “Beauty from ashes”! You are in my constant prayers! ((Hugs))

  5. Tonya! You are so special. Thank you for posting your special day so we could enjoy it too. Sorry we couldn’t be there to celebrate with you. This was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! You and your faith as well as Dales inspires me! Thank you for being a great example of what a marriage covenant REALLY means and choosing to stay and forgive.

  6. Thank you so much for sharing these videos. I loved them! I especially loved hearing all of your family’s voices (except sweet Avery!). Your ceremony was such a blessing on your marriage and your family. Loved it!
    I have two boys and I hope that God blesses them with a wife like you! You embody what God wants a wife to be. Thank you!

  7. Once I viewed the highlights while at work and bawled at its beauty, I had to come home tonight to watch the whole thing! I am like your mentor…I don’t think I have seen anything more beautiful! Really! You know how much I love and admire you and your faith, Tonya. But what a man Dale is!!! I cannot imagine what God will do thru you guys! Praise His Name!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. That was beautiful! Thank you so much for letting us into your life. I wish nothing but blessings to you and your family.
    The girl that sang during the vow renewal is amazing! She has the most beautiful voice.

  9. Tonya, this is a beautiful wedding! and I’m SOO happy you shared your wonderful day with everyone! Blessings to you and your family! your husband and you are true examples of what a relationship that never gives up is truely like! God bless, love reading your blogs!

  10. We serve a mighty and merciful God…Praise His holy name! What a beautiful ceremony and an even more beautiful picture of God’s grace, love and forgiveness. Holding you both up in prayer!

  11. Just Beautiful Was so nice to get to watch it for real since I was so busy taking “Friend” pictures that I really did not see much of the Ceremony that I remembered!!! :) So Happy that you are still a couple and that you are such an example for so many others to boot!!! Love you guys!

  12. cried. through. the. whole. video. Thank you so much for sharing this and thank you LORD for bringing these two wonderful people together and keeping them! XOXO

  13. Tonya. I just read through several of your posts, because my kids are napping and I am pregnant and all kinds of hormonally crazy. I could only watch one minute of your vow renewal because I am crying too much. I am so thankful for your sharing of this time in your life. How humble. Jesus shines so brightly through you two. Thank you. I am now much more committed to praying for my marriage and truly allowing God to rule our lives, not us. You {both} inspire me. Thanks again.

I adore hearing from you, comment away! :)
