Dear, Sweet, Abby and Tom…
I was first touched by your quiet dispositions.
Tender. Sweet. Genuine.
And then I caught a hint of laughter in Abby’s eyes… and thought to myself,”Yep, there’s a fun (maybe even a little ornery?) girl that’s also behind that sweet smile!” And you know what? I was right! Abby, you are both sweet and fun, and I trust you and Tom will share many years of joy and laughter together.
We first met at a local Bridal Show at Notre Dame last winter…the WSBT Bridal Extravaganza. And wow, what a day! I met so many excited young (and some less young-but equally excited) brides to be that day. But in all the crowds of people, the two of you were a pair that lingered in my thoughts. And I was so excited to get the call to meet for your bridal photo consultation! That’s when I truly learned your story… a story of faith and patience… and the path that led you together into this lifelong commitment to one another. It is a beautiful story. And you are a beautiful couple.
Since then we have gotten to know each other more and more. And after your engagement photo session in Mishawaka, fitly set in both the 20 acre woods behind Abby’s childhood home and finishing up in the exact spot of their official engagement, I feel more like we are old friends rather than photographer and client. I can’t wait for July 7th!! It is going to be such a delight photographing your sweet (and certainly fun!) wedding! I wish you both every happiness as you continue down the path of life that is set before you. May you discover to the fullest all that God has for you, and fulfill it with all grace.
