They met in first grade and he invited her to his birthday party.
The beginnings of a beautiful love story, a love story between a boy and a girl but a love story so much more than that.
Caroline and Landon grew up in the mountains of Roanoke, Virginia and developed a friendship through years of school together and then Young Life. They both fell in love and began their own stories with Him along the way. When they were both students at JMU and Young Life volunteers they fell in love.
I had the honor to meet Caroline for coffee to talk about their wedding day and photography. She knew many good friends of mine, including another Bride. It was wonderful to hear the plans she and Landon were making as well as see the joy in the journey as she talked.
On the most pleasant July summer day these two promised to love and serve together on top of a hill overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a beautiful day from Caroline’s smile to Landon’s laugh and goofing off with his future (my former) boss. I loved watching Caroline’s dad hug her and quietly take the day in and Landon’s father blow up their first grade photo and show it off at the reception. It was in many ways a culmination of so much and the beginning of so much more.
I am so excited for what is ahead for them in Roanoke and the community there. Details and vendor information below.
