Today I want to introduce an amazing couple: Ben and Anna. These two are probably some of the biggest hearted, people-loving, prayer-loving authentic hearts I know. I can't think of a couple who love justice, prayer and mercy quite the way they do. When I took their story on, I decided to embark on a journey of capturing their story outside my regular means where I chronicle their lives leading up to their marriage. I believe that all people have a story that deserves to be told and theirs was just one of the many that I get the honor of highlighting. In just 18 days they will be tying the knot because they believe in marriage. In just 18 days they will each be covenanting to one another because they've decided each is worth spending the rest of their life with.
Their story: It was a fine summer evening last July 4th at the Pasadena Rosebowl with the typical July 4th firework display and all. Little did the two know that when they met, they'd be united as one just one year later. What started with a friendly introduction became an in-N-Out date, which grew as they saw their paths converge. Just 8 months after their first meeting, their love relationship finally blossomed into a surprise proposal in Kona just 7 months later after their first meeting. Naturally being a lover of family, Ben bought tickets home just to propose in a place where family was thoughtfully interwoven into the proposal process. One year later and Ben and Anna will be tying the knot this July 5th!
