One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to hear so many amazing love stories. From the moment Debbie shared their love story with me, I was so giddy to get to know this couple and document their love! God was at work writing their love story from the moment they met at their church's young adult small group four years ago. From the first time they met, Eddie knew Debbie was going to be the woman he would marry, and he began his journey to become a man of God that Debbie would want to marry. No one tells it better than the bride herself:
To God be the glory! To say I'm stoked to document their wedding day in a few months would be a huge understatement! Between the breathtaking scenery, beautiful couple, and behind-the-scenes giggles, this has been one of my favorite engagement sessions to date. The way Eddie makes Debbie smile is so adorable. I am so inspired by their firm foundation in Christ & their readiness to display that they are not living for this world, but all for Jesus! In their two years of dating, they have rooted themselves in the things they find most important - God & community. They have been back to Mexico at least five times since that first trip, served as church interns & volunteers, and lead children's ministry & 12-step programs.
Eddie proposed on New Year's Eve, and while Debbie had to ask herself if she was ready to leave her parents and step into marriage, she knew that with all of the things her and Eddie have been able to accomplish side-by-side already, God will certainly be able to do so much more through them as a married couple. She knelt down with him and said "yes!"
Congratulations on your engagement, Debbie & Eddie! I cannot wait to celebrate your marriage this summer!
