Love. It really does have a way of bringing people together. You know that old saying that "love is blind"? The saying is normally used in a negative way but the hopeless romantic in me thinks that the fact that "love is blind" is a good thing. I absolutely love the picture that 1 Corinthians 13 paints of love (If you have ever been to a wedding, chances are pretty good that you've heard this scripture reading.) The last part of this popular wedding scripture says, "Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love never fails". (NLT) I think this is a beautiful picture of "blind love". Love that chooses to remain even in the tough times. In the midst of adversity and pain...it's always there, chugging along, hoping and enduring through it all. What a wonderful way to love! This is the love we hope for all of our couples to have for a lifetime!
This wonderful couple, Kelly and Zach, were married on August 12, 2017 when the rest of the world wasn't seeing a whole lot of love. I'm so glad that I was witnessing and celebrating the love of two beautiful individuals on this day in history. To me, their love story shines as a light in the darkness that is happening and is a testament of unity and diversity. I am so, so glad that this is the memory I will have of that day.
Thank you Kelly and Zach for sharing your love story with us! Your wedding day was beautiful, as were both of you, and it was truly an honor to be there to capture it.
