A Bethany Beach, DE Engagement

  • Kevin + Anna Grace | Engaged

met a couple of years ago. She attended one of my workshops and not only did we have mutual friends, we also had a mutual obsession with TEAL! …. Which in my book, automatically makes us great friends! :) Anna Grace was starting her journey into the photography world while she was in college (sound familiar?!) and I loved getting to know her during The Workshop Experience! As she left after a long day of teaching, we hugged goodbye and she stopped and said “I hope you know you’re shooting my wedding one day.” Well, I’ve heard that before…. sometimes it happens and then sometimes and I never see them again. But when Anna Grace said it,

  • Tim + Mary Margaret | Engaged

there were some people that we saw everyday. My roommates, our neighbors, etc. There were also some friends that we only saw every now and then because of the age difference, class schedules and living arrangements. Michael and I have been friends with Mary Margaret and Tim since college but because I wasn’t in Young Life, I didn’t get to see them very often. We share all of the same friends and I have always thought to myself “Gosh, they’re super cute together…. I wonder when they’re getting engaged!!”. Well, the proposal happened this summer and their getting married this winter in the most adorable location!!

A Downtown Ashland Wedding

  • Brendan + Jenna

After dinner was over at the rehearsal, one by one, different friends and family members stood up and shared just how much they love Brendan and Jenna. Groomsmen shared stories and talked about how much respect and love they have for Brendan and bridesmaids stood up and thanked Jenna for being such a trustworthy, intentional friend. However, they didn’t just talk about them separately. EVERYONE shared about how amazing they are as a couple and how they have learned so much from their relationship. It’s a beautiful thing to see two friends who everyone loves and admires, start a life together!! Michael and I just love these two. Brendan was in our bridal party and has been such a loyal friend to Michael over the last 5 years. Jenna has been a part of my life since I was a junior in college and she was a freshman!
