The thing I think I enjoy most about my job is the wonderful couples that I get to become friends with. By the time of Valerie + Rome's wedding, I felt like I was watching two very dear and close friends get married. I felt like we had already known each other for a long time, even though we only got to meet in person 2 weeks prior to the wedding. I just loved hearing about their long distance relationship, since I can totally identify. In their case, Rome was stationed in Japan, while Valerie was living in Germany. Their story is one that could only have been made possible by God's hand, that's for sure. The emotion on their beautiful day was so raw, so joyous, God's presence was so evident as He blessed their union.
I am so happy I got to be a part of your amazing day, Valerie + Rome. Fred and I miss you guys already as you are in Japan! But at least you guys now don't have to fly to one another anymore! May God continue to bless you two! Here's the slideshow and some of my faves below ;)
