I love when one of my engagement sessions or weddings is featured on a blog. Not because I love knowing others appreciate my work, although I do love that! But because I believe every one of my couple's has a story worth sharing. Andrew and Rachel's story is especially touching for me, because I have known Rachel through almost every step. I remember our coffee date that ended in tears over the love she felt was lost. And I remember the pure joy I felt when I found out they were engaged.
I still get overwhelmed when I think about how, in His grace, God brought me hundreds of miles away from anyone I knew to shower me with HIS love and then give me the gift of my future husband who daily demonstrates the beauty of the Gospel to me in the way that he loves me unconditionally. Praise God for a tangible picture of His love for us through the covenant of marriage.
Those words were written by Rachel, describing the redemption she has experienced with Andrew by her side. Head over to Love Came Down to hear more about their beautiful love. I believe that marriage is a beautiful reflection of Christ's love for us, and Andrew and Rachel's story is a lovely example. Thank you so much to Love Came Down for the feature. But most of all, thank you Andrew and Rachel for being authentic and vulnerable. I cannot wait to celebrate with you this weekend!
