Tonight we had the honor of hosting a gathering for some pretty special people.
I didn’t get any pictures of the food because I was so busy all day and by the time I got to sit down I did NOT want to get up to photograph anything. I just wanted to sit down! I made raspberry chipotleque meatballs, caprese skewers and buffalo chicken dip.
The whole purpose of it all was to celebrate a proposal!
Our friends, Carey & Patty, got engaged!
I love proposals, engagements, and weddings. I think because when I look back at that time in my own life, I remember the people who loved me most doing amazing things for my husband and I because they loved us so much. I am more grateful for that time than anyone knows. My church family and friends did so much for us. From our engagement soirée after my hubby said “I love you” for the first time to our co-ed renaissance bridal shower that our amazing bridal party threw for us to our engagement photos that were a gift from a photographer friend. God really showed us what sacrificial love and what laying your life down for your friends looks like through them. I didn’t realize it then, but I have come to realize it in the past five years and I am so grateful for those times.
We are super excited for Carey and Patty, and the plans that God has for their future together. Let all the festivities begin!
Carey & Patty, we love you both so much and we pray that during your engagement you will experience God’s love in ways that you could never imagine!
