I’ve known Christina and Dave for a long time. In fact I think I met them just a few years after they got married in May of 1993! So when they approached me about their idea for a 25th anniversary session I was totally into it. When Christina mentioned that she was hoping to wear her wedding dress too, that made it even more fun! How awesome is that! Most brides only get the thrill of wearing their dress on their wedding day, and I remember not wanting to take my dress off, I loved it so much. So this was special to Christina and, oh my gosh, you can see she looked absolutely beautiful!
Marriage is a blessing. And being married to your best friend is such a gift. On that beautiful wedding day the journey together begins and if you’ve been married for even one week, you know that it isn’t always easy. There are days of absolute joy and days of deep sorrow, and everything in between. The commitment made and the vows shared on that wedding day will be tested over time but choosing to love the other person more than yourself, is what builds a healthy, sustaining marriage.
Christina and Dave have worked together to build a beautiful, healthy relationship for 25 years! That’s something to celebrate! They’re raising two boys, (young men, really!) and their family is not only loved by me and my family, but by so many others who they have each touched and blessed in some way.
I loved watching them laugh together, walk hand in hand together and share sweet moments during their anniversary session up at Arbor Hills. Christina’s dress was still so gorgeous after all these years and her shoes!! They were so much fun! Congratulations, guys! I am SO happy for you and maybe, just maybe – we’ll do this again in another 25 years! XOXO
