Telling Your Story/Telling God’s Story

One of my favorite aspects of this book-writing process has been meeting fellow believers around the world who have, by God’s grace, done some pretty great things with their weddings. I met Alyssa Poblete through Twitter and she and her husband, Chris, agreed to let me post this video here.

The video was shown at the reception after the speeches. It was made by Lauren Myering and the first time Chris and Alyssa saw it was at the wedding.

Here are Alyssa’s comments on the purpose of the video:

“Each one of us has a story that is part of God’s bigger story and Chris and I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight that for our guests. The wedding video was a tool that Chris and I used to communicate the story of God’s absolute sovereignty in our lives and the abundant grace he has shown us. Many of our guests were loved ones that we only get to see every few years. For many of them, we are not sure if they know Jesus.”

Thanks, Alyssa and Chris, for sharing this!

  1. Great story in this post; and I love what you’ve done here on this blog site. We are Christians and wedding photographers, and when we photograph a wedding we always appreciate it when the bride and groom have carefully planned to honor God in their ceremony and celebrations, rather than simply follow traditions and trends. It certainly takes some careful thought and intentionality. Have you seen chapter 11 in Vanhoozer’s “Everyday Theology”?

    • Dale, thanks for the comment and the encouragement! I haven’t read that, but looked it up and will try to get my hands on it. Thanks for the tip.
