Elizabeth Serven and Jonathan Ten Dolle Wedding ~ (today!)


Notifying the civil authorities of their covenant

Watch their wedding at:

We were blessed to meet Rebecca, Elizabeth's older sister last August at WCWC. Rebecca is one of the most genuine godly young women I've ever met.

Later, we met Beth and Jon at the Film Festival in January.

I watched this wedding with tears rolling down my face. It was simple, very Serven. This family is reaping what they have sowed and the fruit is good.
~Regina Serven Siblings:
Rebecca, Nathan, Elizabeth, Peter,
Benjamin, Sarah, Lydia, Andrew, Joel
Elizabeth with her parents

"...prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." Rev. 21:2

Some exhortation from Mr. Serven at the wedding:

A husband is the PROVIDER, PROTECTOR, PRIEST Lead your family in seeking the Lord, spiritually washing her in the word daily, AND PATRIARCH.

A man leaves and cleves for the purpose of establishing a new household as a new covenant head, not a dominator giving fear. One flesh includes friendship and learning to think like one another. Sacrifice yourself daily for your wife. See in this marriage a picture of Christ and His church.

Speak the truth in love.

Children are a blessing and a reward.

"very Serven". Indeed. VERY Serven. One of the "richest" weddings I've ever witnessed, and I used to be a professional wedding photographer...... so I've seen a few. Yes, Mr. Loomis, if that was your hand on any of the cameras, thanks for making this possible, and for the excellent work.
