Dana and Chris in Philadelphia (Engagement)

I'm not sure that I've ever had so much trouble writing a blurb for a blog.  There's so much I could say about this couple, but I am afraid that if I write it all, you'll still be reading this tomorrow morning.

Dana came into my life as a young, fiery red-headed girl in youth group when I was just getting my feet wet as a leader.  She somehow became the first student to confide in me, trust me and want to hear what I had to say because she thought I had something to offer her (even if it wasn't very much).  I can't remember how or when we clicked, but I do remember that she was "my girl" and I became hers.  Over the years I've watched her face the good stuff and bad with that same fiery spirit and trust in the Lord that she had when she first marched her way into the Upper Room, and now, seeing her prepare to be a bride, I couldn't be more proud of the vibrant, (still) fiery, comical, sincere, tender-hearted, passionate young woman that she has become. 

And we certainly can't forget about her "boothang".  He's kind, super sweet, a strong leader, devoted Christ-follower and completely in love with his woman!  I don't think it will take too long to recognize "that look" beaming right out of his eyeballs.  As they prepare to join in marriage on Valentine's Day, I can't wait to see God's plan unfold in their life as one.

Please enjoy a few of my favorite morning snuggles and silly giggles from their sunrise session on Sunday! 

"So, we should commit to tickling for five seconds too, right?!"

Dang girl.
