There is so much beauty in a lasting love. Beauty in the journey through easy flowing rivers, peaceful breezes, and even the climb of difficult mountains. Yet each season is so beautiful because you are hand in hand and side by side doing it together with the one you love. One of the most beautiful displays of love is through our children. We pour all we have into them daily, teaching them how to love, and then one day, they find their own true love.
In this photo shoot, my hope was to showcase both stories; the new journey of love and the steadfast one that has endured generations. From the day of their wedding, the parents had written love letters, pouring out their hearts on paper, which was such a big part of their story. They were so excited that their son-to-be had a love for the written word. Through faith and perseverance, they had arrived upon this day which was such a cause for celebration! They were even able to gift their daughter with a reminder of their story with heirloom pearls and a prayer of blessing as she started her own journey of love. They are even more in love now, 40 years later, and it is so so beautiful.
In every wedding ahead, let’s take time to look around at the beauty all around us through the view of the people that have already made the lasting journey.
