Way back last October, I was taking pictures at @thechristopherh and @thehannahhughes wedding. Chris had all of his brothers as groomsmen and they were pretty fly. I liked them good enough.
A few months later, Chris mentions that his bro Timothy was planning on poppin the question to his girlfriend Whitney. Long story short, they done got engaged and done did reach out to me.
After a wonderful conversation over some coffee and breakfast, I got to know these two wonderful souls and hear more about their life stories. To hear about their hearts for ministry, to help the needy and broken, and to spend their lives together (which is hopefully a given when you're engaged, right?)...it was rad.
Fast forward again to today, June 23rd. Timo and Whit got hitched decently early in the AM at this quaint, adorable old church in Sanger with their closest friends and fam around. Oh and me, a mild stranger but still kinda familiar with me. I loved seeing the community of folks who have been surrounding them all this time. The fact that Tim's parents in law actively and privately welcomed him to the family. The happy tears Whitney's sister kept crying all day long (I see everything, dude). It was magical.
AND TO TOP IT OFF, Whitney told me she had always wanted to do photos in this ABANDONED. MANSION. Like, ok duh we're gonna go take photos there even though it's like 200 degrees out and we gotta walk with tons of bugs on us basically.
Today was a wonderful, laid back adventure. I am thankful for my new friends and I'm even more thankful that they now get to do life together as husband and wife.
