After knowing Stella & Andrew for the past couple years, this photo captures for me the essence of why their relationship is so endearing. Everyone knows those moments where an unabashed, unashamed Andrew is just being himself, and Stella reacting either by laughing at/with him or face-palming herself in embarrassment.
Leading up to their wedding there were, as with so many other weddings, there were last minute changes and arguments. And when you are in the thick of the stress of wedding planning it feels like everything is just about that one day and nothing else.
But during their ceremony, these words were read aloud to Stella and Andrew:
Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness Lord, unto me
The reasons that deepened their love into vows and united them, can't ever be fully explained or quantified, nor should it be. Because there are graces and mercies that are provided for us and all we can do is try our best to live humbly and gratefully as we receive those blessings.
I see this true in both Stella and Andrew's life, and it was an honor to capture that for them on their wedding day.
