November 8, 2012 / Engagement
Laura + Matthew - Gate City, VA
This weekend we got to enjoy an afternoon hanging out and photographing one of our favorite couples in the world, our friends Laura and Matthew. Laura has been one of my best friends since high school and was a bridesmaid in our wedding. She went above and beyond her duty as bridesmaid and did sooooo much for us, I just could not have imagined getting married without her there. She has always been there for me when I need her and has been by my side through so many phases in my life. I have also had the pleasure of witnessing a few big moments in her life as well, including when she met her soul mate, Matthew. And when I say soul mate I mean it! They are perfect for each other in every way. I have so much admiration for this girl for the way she stuck it out and waited for God to send the perfect man walking into her life. I remember one point in time when she felt like she would be single forever, but she never settled for less than what God and intended for her. All of her waiting definitely paid off because she is now engaged to an incredible guy who could not be more perfect for her.Â Seeing these two so happy together literally brings tears to my eyes, I just could not be any happier for them.
You might also recognize Laura and Matthew as being somewhat of local celebrities for recently winning the Tri-Cities Dream Wedding contest. If anyone deserves such an awesome blessing, it is definitely these two! Congrats guys! We love you and are so happy for you!
