Sometime we forget to realize that love stories are not always days full of bliss and magic. There are days that can be tough and challenging that can sometimes shake and shudder the love you share. I would like to think the storms we bear make what you have truly stronger and more meaningful. Jody and Johnathan can attest to this specifically. I would love for you to take a peek at their beautiful engagement session and at the end of this blog they share a written glimpse of their love story -thorns, roses & all.
Johnathan and I were engaged for 5 years before we got married. The journey that got us to that day was not always easy and fun. Just when we were ready to begin planning our wedding, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was during that time, we were truly able to see how much two people can face together. Despite the painful reality of our situation, we were still able to laugh, love and look forward to our future. They say that the couples that are “meant to be” are the ones who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart and come out even stronger than they were before. That is exactly what we did and that is why our wedding day was a celebration for what we accomplished together. Getting married started a new chapter in our lives and though we know our lives can sometimes get messy- we can always count on one another to get through the storm.
