Today’s Featured Friday post is on Stephen and Bronwyn’s whose wedding took place last June 7th in Scottsdale, AZ. Their wedding was held at Stephen’s family church and their reception took place in his family’s backyard–making for such a sweet, relaxed and beautiful venue! Jordan and I remember how loved we felt as we shot their wedding and got to know their wedding party and family. Joy. Total joy emitted from everyone celebrating the joining of Mr. and Mrs. Siebert.
And today, a new kind of joy is experienced by these two as they just announced the expecting of their first little one! Talk about a complete joy and blessing! They will make such sweet parents!
I always love when I receive the answers to these questions, because I can either relate (like Jordan looking just like Stephen when he’s around wood working stuff) or be encouraged (like their reminder of what the Bible tells us marriage is a reflection of). So happy Friday as you’re encouraged by a former couple of ours!
Mr. and Mrs. Siebert
What is your favorite memory from your wedding day?
-Stephen: Walking back down the aisle together after the ceremony because it meant we were married!
-Bronwyn: During our ceremony, everyone sang the hymn “ My hope is built on nothing Less”. There was something so beautiful about Stephen and I, along with everyone we love, singing about how Christ is where our hope lies.
What one piece of advice would you give to a bride & groom planning their wedding right now?
Make it what you want and focus on what is important to you. You don’t have to do things for the sake of tradition or because you are worried other people won’t understand your choice.
Describe one of your favorite dates since you’ve been married? In your home or out on the town?
Our favorite date nights are usually ones where we get to make dinner together and sit at the table talking about real life, our dreams, the future, etc.
What is your favorite meal your spouse makes?
Stephen- Caprese (Mozzarella, Basil, Tomatoes, Vinegar Reduction) Sandwiches
Bronwyn- Red Chili Sauce- great over eggs or a burrito
Tell me what makes marriage worth fighting for?
The Bible tells us that marriage is a reflection of how Christ loves the Church. Marriage is worth fighting for because we have promised to love each other and be a reflection of the gospel to the world.
What has been the best piece of advice you’ve received since being married?
Communicate well, don’t assume your spouse knows what you are needing in a particular situation.
What makes you giggle about your spouse?
Stephen- The way she is dorkier around me than anyone else
Bronwyn- The way he acts around woodworking tools- like a kid at Christmas
What piece of advice would you share with a future husband and wife?
Go on adventures together, laugh a lot, and surround yourself with a good community.
