There is a lot of story here. I tear up each time I think of their love story and am reminded of the journey that led them to this moment.
I won’t share details, but I can share…that I am overwhelmed 1) at the invite to capture this wedding, 2) at the gracious redemption the Lord bestows upon his people, and 3) two lives that have been weaved together to begin one fantastic life long journey…together.
Just trust me. A wedding is always a great and beautiful event. But a wedding becomes an epic story when those two people and the community who surrounds them come together to celebrate and witness the promising of two lives to each other.
That community packed up its cars and bags and planes and traveled to Bend, Oregon to spend a weekend rejoicing over John and Vanessa. It was a privilege, my friends, to be there with you. (I didn’t cry too hard during the ceremony…)
