He’s liked her since 8th grade. Yes, you heard that correctly. Eighth grade. Through years of friendship, persistence, heartbreak, discussions, and prayers, he finally got the girl of his dreams during their sophomore year of college. We had the privilege of photographing their wedding in Ft. Wayne, Indiana shortly after their graduation from Taylor University.
The night before their wedding, a huge storm traveled through the area, flooding their parents’ homes. Susie sent me a text that morning, informing me of the horrific night they had experienced. And unfortunately, the rain was supposed to continue throughout their wedding day.
Troy and I prepared for rain. After arriving at Brookside Church I checked the weather one last time– eighty percent chance of rain every hour throughout the day.
Guess what? It never rained. I never even felt a drop.
They had the blessing of sunshine and with the JOY that pours from Chris and Susie (as well as their parents), they smiled continuously through their wedding day. Susie’s mom even told me in reference to her flooded house, “It’s just stuff.”
We spent the day laughing with their easy-going bridal party, visiting Parkview Field, walking the streets of Ft. Wayne, and dancing our socks off at Bergstaff Place. I trust you’ll see their joy as you get a glimpse of their wedding day story.
