With one wedding left in 2015 to go, I am finally able to start getting blogs finished! I am pumped to share a variety of different wedding stories in the coming months! I will also be posting wedding previews that aren't as lengthy to show you some of my favorite portraits from the year. It is going to be great so be sure to be checking back.
Today I get to share my dear friend Aimee's wedding that took place at Coyote Ranch in Morgan Hill, California back in August!
Five years ago, Aimee and I became soulmates while serving on the World Race. Our friendship has since been one of constant solidarity and trust. She is one the best people I know; showing unconditional love and mercy to all she meets.
After two incredible years serving as a missionary in Thailand, she met Adam while working with a local NGO, Free Burma Rangers (to read more about their current roles, scroll to the bottom of this post). To me, it came as no surprise that she would fall for a man who also loves sacrificially. Their relationship evolved quickly while serving God together in the jungles of Burma. Following two big moves back to the states and a fervent pursuit of Aimee’s heart, Adam proposed.
Their wedding day was extraordinary. People flew in from all over the world to share in their union. They laughed, danced and celebrated while giving thanks to the One who provided so richly for their lives. I feel so blessed to have witnessed and documented their love.
Enjoy seeing my favorite images from the day below.
Both Aimee and Adam work for a local NGO in Thailand that does outreach to Burmese refugees and IDP (internally displaced person). They focus on relief and development work, while bringing the love and hope of Christ to refugees and IDPs.
Aimee is developing an English program for staff, students, and local children involved in the ministry, doing some administrative work, and helping at relief team trainings in the field. She also helps facilitate morning devotions, puts on outreach events, and hopes to develop relationships with women in the red light district as a part of future ministry.
Adam has resumed his role as Training Coordinator for ethnic relief team trainings facilitated in the jungle, which support displaced people groups in Burma. He also teaches several training subjects and helps in logistics and supply roles in the field.
