The Barn at Reynolda Village

Andrew & Cierra’s beautiful Barn at Reynolda Village wedding was everything they prayed for and more. With a beautiful setting, perfect weather, and God’s love evident on the entire day, Andrew and Cierra wed in the setting sun. But it wasn’t always a perfect fairytale for Andrew & Cierra.

Bride & Groom’s story

Cierra writes: 

When Andrew first came into my life I was frankly not in the best place in my life. In the weeks leading up to our first communication, I had gone from my last summer in Alaska to back home on a flight that landed me within the 24-hour window in which we would bury my brother.

But God had other plans for Cierra & Andrew

“A few days following his funeral, I packed up my life once again. My mama and I moved me into a brand new school, in a brand new city full of brand new people and nothing familiar. For the first time in my life I was facing a homesickness so fierce that I couldn’t sleep at night and I dared not go home before Thanksgiving break because I knew if I went too soon, I wouldn’t come back to school. All of this to say that when the person who told Andrew and I about each other kept pushing him onto me I responded with, “Listen, I’m sure Andrew is a really nice guy, but I’m not moving to North Carolina, I’m not marrying him, and I am NOT having his babies, so stop”. Ha. And here we are. Thank God for grace and second chances for stubborn ways.  

God is gracious and kind even in the midst of our struggles

“Our story would have turned out very differently had the person on the other end been anyone other than Andrew.

I felt no need to impress this boy, so I gave him every honest truth about myself, my life, my current situation, my beliefs, my views, what makes my heart sing and what makes my heart ache. He may not have understood all of it and he may not have said much but what he did do was listen, and through it all he never saw the crazy that I so strongly felt, he only saw my heart in its true and raw form—that what pushes me through and fuels my ability to overcome is my heart for people, for doing the right thing and above all, a tested, tried and unbreakable belief that my life is riddled with purpose and promise. I invited him to see it all, but all he saw was all that mattered.”

We are so excited for Andrew & Cierra’s redemption story, and hope you’ve enjoyed this little look into their sweet lives.
