1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us.
Rachel and Zach have known each other since birth. Born three days apart, the two grew up attending the same church, went to school together Kindergarten through twelfth grade, and have been inseparable their whole life long. Zach kissed Rachel for the first time when they were four, but it took him until they were thirteen to hold her hand.
It was so wonderful to photograph Rachel and Zach’s wedding and to witness not only the love they have for each other, but the love that is shared between their families. During the lighting of the unity candle, Zach’s mother and siblings sang the hymn, “O Perfect Love.” It was beautiful.
The weather wasn’t the norm for Memorial Day weekend; in the forties with a near constant cold drizzle. Certainly not ideal for a wedding, but at the end of the evening, I overheard a guest tell Rachel & Zach something I hope they always remember: “Pay no mind to the weather; you’ll have plenty of sunny days ahead!”
Congratulations again, Rachel & Zach!
