Evan and Caitlin both went to Georgia Tech and met at BCM (Baptist Collegiate Ministry). On November the 3rd Evan romantically proposed to her on homecoming day under the Tech Tower in Harrison Square. Since then Caitlin booked her wedding at Stone Chapel, bought a dress, and booked us as her photographers. That is what I called an organized bride. =)
As we planned their engagement session Caitlin told me that they both love the outdoors, hiking, and enjoying creation together. So, Paris Mountain instantly came to my mind and it was perfect! These colder days have allowed for some of my favorite things to be incorporated into photo sessions… scarves, sweaters, boots, and of course hot chocolate. We had such a fun day together. They had me laughing about 90% of their session! I so look forward to their spring wedding!
Caitlin sent me a paragraph or 2 telling me a little bit about themselves. I loved what she wrote, “Evan completes me. He is introverted and I am extroverted, I can get more stressed at times and he is cool as a cucumber. I am blown away everyday by his unconditional love for me and how that mirrors the likeness of the groom(Jesus Christ).” I love the following quote by John Piper that furthers illustrates this truth,
“God patterned marriage purposefully after the relationship between His Son and the church, which He planned from eternity. And therefore marriage is a mystery; it contains and conceals a meaning far greater than what we see on the outside. What God has joined together in marriage is to be a reflection of the union between the Son of God and His bride the church. Those of us who are married need to ponder again and again how mysterious and wonderful it is that we are granted by God the privilege to image forth stupendous divine realities infinitely bigger and greater than ourselves.”
Wow, I want to grasp this truth daily! If truly grasped all marriages could be transformed for the glory of God!
