You could say she was just a girl. Just a girl that was the daughter of a friend of the family. They passed each other in the lobby of the church on Sunday mornings as their families stopped occasionally to chat. But to Nick, she stood out. Her contagious laugh and energy captured his attention. He knew that even though she might say no, he had to give it a shot. He knew that she could be the girl of his dreams, so he planned a day of picnics and adventure. They spent the whole day together and suddenly Karlie and Nick became partners with a wonderful, inseparable bond.
They’ll be married this November with their families and church friends that brought them together in the first place. As we explored the small lake town of Winona, it was so easy to tell the love that Karlie and Nick had for each other, and I can’t wait to see them become husband + wife. Karlie and Nick, thank you so much for making the drive and exploring Winona Lake with me, it was so worth it! Counting the days until the wedding – xx, M. P.S. Dear Nick, thank you for not getting mad at me when I called you by your brothers name 😉
He remembered being tucked into his bed covers as his parents sat on the edge of the little twin bed, kissing him goodnight. Every night, his father’s deep and comforting voice would start talking to God, thanking Him for blessings, asking for a good night’s sleep, and most curiously, prayed for the little girl somewhere in the world that his son would marry. Caleb always wondered who this girl might be, and tried to picture her occasionally. Maybe she was in his school, at his church, or in a small Indiana town hundreds of miles away.
And then, all of a sudden, a sweet, smiling girl entered into his life. She had moved hundreds of miles to work at an organization in North Carolina, right where Caleb happened to be. They slowly became friends, and as much as they wanted to become something more, God told them the timing wasn’t right. So patiently, they waited. It was on a trip to Rome, underneath the historic cathedrals, lights, and romantic air of Italy, that they finally spent an evening hand in hand on their first date. The adventure of their relationship didn’t stop there- just a little while later, there Keisha was, underneath a waterfall staring at the man she adored, who was down on one knee asking her to be his wife.
Caleb and Keisha were married at Winona Heritage Room next to the shimmering waters of Winona Lake, Indiana. The day was calm, cloudy, and relaxed. They opted to see each other before the ceremony, which led to having lots of time for photos and to enjoy the entire day together. And just as they stood hand in hand with each other at the altar, promising to be husband and wife, the sun broke out of the clouds. Gods love and blessing shone down on them as they stood, surrounded by family, praying that He blesses their life together. As they exited the reception on a tandem bike, guests excitedly tossed paper airplanes and blessings for a life full of love and adventure their way. Keisha and Caleb, it was such a joy being a part of your day and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you two! xx- Morgan
