When this beautiful friend of mine asked me to photograph her wedding, I cannot begin to tell you how honored I felt.
This family is just so exceptional. I met Lauren through her mom, Robin. I've had the pleasure of getting to know Robin in the last several years, through occasionally attending a women's Bible study she leads. My first impression of this special lady was that she was authentic, sincere, and loving. In getting to know her better, she has only consistently proven my first impression to be spot on. :) My husband and I got to know Lauren as we were leading a sweet group of single folks at our church. It didn't take me long to discover that the apple didn't fall far from the tree. :) Lauren was just as beautiful and rare as her sweet mother.
Lauren met Aaron.
And the rest is history. :)
What a beautiful testimony this couple shares... showing that their faith and patience to wait for that very "special someone"... the "someone" they were confident God had created specifically for them, would eventually enter their lives in His timing. On their own individually, they remained steadfast in conviction that they would not settle for less than their values would allow. God rewarded their patience, and allowed them to find one another. I can't help but think they appreciate one another even more because of it.
What a blessing to participate in the happiness of their very special day. This bride exuded joy and energy like no other.
So... enough of my gabbing, and onto what everyone wants to see... the first batch of previews. ENJOY!!!
