No one can quite understand this except for christian brides so I wanted to share this with you ladies….
We went to see our Venue to finalize all the details and its just PERFECT! I LOVE it! Its not advertised for AT ALL so people always ask me how i found it. – the answer is honestly – God showed me.
About a year ago I was searching aimlessly for a rustic barn or someplace like it to hold our June 2013 wedding. Everything was just outrageously expensive or already booked. Its rediculous how early these places book up. We don’t have a lot of money and we were about to spend 4k on a barn we were just OK with and we were not at all pleased with the lady who owned it. But we had no choice – everything was that much and everything else was booked. So about a day before sending in the deposit – i did a last ditch google search for idk what- but somehow I found Millikan Farms – It was absolutely GORGEOUS! and a quarter of the price AND it was available on our date! I’d done that search a million times every day for 4 months straight – i didn’t just miss it- that was an answer to my prayers right there – My frantic self freaking out that we can’t afford this – pleading with God for help. BUT there was one BIG problem. There was NO Air conditioned and its a loft – in JUNE in North Carolina. Everyone told me to spend extra for the AC and its worth the money and all that. Then the church sermon that sunday was on Trusting God in everything. And then we were talking about the same thing in Small Group the next day… THEN I got a random “bible verse of the day” pop up on my phone about it. I was just like in shock. It hit me that the one thing “wrong” with this place is something that I have ZERO control over anyway – the weather. I’ve never really heard Gods voice so clear before but I remember standing in my front yard and it was as clear as day. God just said something along the lines of “Trust Me – I’ve got this under control”. So i did and a huge wave of relief came over me and we booked it.
Now get this- they installed Air Conditioning in the Barn LAST WEEK. And I booked at the lower price so I got the lowest new pre AC price. Granted I have no Idea what the weather will be like on our wedding day but I just know its gonna be gorgeous and sunny because God’s handling it – and HE NEVER disapoints!
Not only that but this place is a dream come true – its EXACTLY what I wanted and thought I’d never find! Its our rustic Barn wedding and we’re getting married overlooking the pond with the gorgeous big red barn right behind us – he’s even going to bring over one of his horses for pictures after the ceremony. he’s the most down to earth, laid back, easy to work with, vendor EVER. Our Caterer is his cousin and is equally awesome to work with.
I just had to share because non brides don’t understand how amazing this is – and non christians just say “that was lucky” no – it was 100% Jesus through and through. I don’t get that lucky. I couldn’t make this up if i tried.

Congrats on the location! A true blessing in deed! We were blessed in our endeavour as well. Two months before the wedding day and we had to cancel with our original location due to racist issues and petty complications with the caterer. While all of this was going on I just kept praying God would make everything work out and sure enough it did, the same week everything happened our pastor mentioned the church being available for the wedding in case it rained (he didn’t know our issues) and we went with that. Not only that but it saved TONS of money since the church had almost everything already and the money saved we were able to use for me to go to the neurologist to have my health issues looked at, which I was praying for as well.
Trust in God and you will have no reason to fear or doubt.

Awww, I 100% understand what you’re talking about. God has been bringing our wedding together as well. He single-handedly worked out all my fear and concerns regarding who we would get to officiate (I was worried we would have to have a civil ceremony but I really REALLY wanted to say Christian vows administered by a proper Christian minister and God worked it right out). There’s nothing like hearing the voice of God, obeying it, easing your mind and watching the Holy Spirit work. Sounds like you literally experienced the text of Phillipians 4:6,7.

I know this feeling too. God has provided so many miraculous things for our wedding! He is so good.

So I was going through looking over the board today and there are many threads about God and whether or not people believe and why some do not and I put in my 2 cents worth (just adding the scripture 2 Cor 5:7 which speaks of Faith) and then I clicked on the Christian button above and came across this and wow…I feel so much better. Sometimes it is pretty tough being a Christian surrounded by non-believers. I just wanted you guys to know that you made me smile today 🙂 God Bless you all!

That is so awesome & I am so happy for you!
I have definitely had very sobering and tear-filled moments of seeing God’s grace in my life. I am so undeserving, but he loves me enough to bless my life in so many immeasurable ways.
Trusting in the Lord can be so difficult sometimes, but realizing that all things work for the good of his plan makes it easier to handle life when it doesn’t go our way. For instance, if it does rain on your day, you will take it in stride because it is God’s will, just like finding your venue.

That is amazing! I always feel like God is in the details and in aspects that may seem insignificant but are so important to us!
I found my venue yesterday and honestly, its just perfect for us, in so many ways and the way I came accross it was similar to you! It just reminds you that He is in every detail .

So happy for you! I believe that God works things out for us when we put our trust in Him! I am just at the beginning of the planning process and occasionally get that “stressed out” feeling… but then I remember that God will help me all along the road. It’s great reading testimonies like yours that help remind me that He’ll be there for us no matter what.
