Michael and I are “moment junkies”. We feed off the moments that take your breath away, the ones that make you laugh and cry. To say we “got our fill” at this wedding is an understatement. This couple’s ability to show outrageous joy can really warm the heart. My cheeks hurt by the end of the day and my heart was so full of joy to see Rebecca marry her Robert.
I have known Rebecca since she was a child and I have known Robert since he was a teenager. I have literally watched these two grow up! I was Rebecca’s babysitter, watched her in nursery, and in church groups. I was also there on that notorious Bahamas mission trip in 2004 when the spark began between these two. Rebecca was 13 and Robert was 16. I could tell even then that they were perfect for each other! They didn’t officially start a relationship until 2 years ago and almost instantly knew they would be married.
What a blessing to get to share in a wedding where I knew both the bride and groom and both of their families so well! I knew how much it meant for Rebecca’s father to give her away and then to turn around and officiate their marriage. I felt her momma’s tears as she watched her first born wed. I knowingly laughed with Robert’s mom and dad as stories were told of Robert’s boldness and humor while growing up.
To see these two wed was one of the greatest joys of my photography career, not to mention a great reunion with many friends. Congratulations Rebecca and Robert! And as the matron of honor so eloquently put, “May your love for each other only grow so that when you look back on your wedding day you can say it was the day we loved each other the least.”
