I don’t think I’ve made an official announcement on my blog, so here it is: my oldest daughter is getting married!
She and her fiancé have known each other for more than 6 years; they were youth together in our church, and were high school sweethearts. He left on a mission for our church, she left for college, and for a while we wondered if that would be the end of the story. But NO! He came home last fall, flew to visit her at college, and proposed! They are planning a spring wedding.
Are they young? Very. Does that concern me? Not in this case. You have to know the two of them – know their story together – to appreciate my confidence in them. But maybe now just take my word for it: they’re going to be ok (no matter how young they are!).
When they were here for winter break, my daughter asked me to take their engagement photos. I am by no means a professional, but I have a nice camera and a decent eye. We had fun together on this cold, foggy winter day, and I think the photos turned out pretty great. Here’s to young love, fun engagement photos, and my first turn at being Mother of the Bride!
