Anna Claire & Brett’s Fondren engagement session was a BLAST!! When the weather forecast showed rain, we began brainstorming indoor location. Once we talked about having their session at Brent’s Drugs, the location was set rain or shine!
I first met Anna Claire almost 10 years ago when her cousin was my roommate at We Will Go Ministries. Anna Claire’s mom and aunt were instrumental in helping our ministry start a children’s program, and Anna Claire was the sweetest young teen girl I ever met!
Fast forward to today, and I can’t believe she is old enough to be getting married!! We love Anna Claire and her family and I am so blessed to work with her and Brett during this special season of their lives!
How they met…
I asked Anna Claire how they met. “We actually met when we were kids! We went to the same home church and reconnected once we got older! It was very random but definitely the Lord’s set up!”
How he popped the question…
“We were planning to go out to eat for our two year anniversary, but he took me to the visitor’s center in Clinton instead. He told me that he wanted to show me something. Once we got there, he had a sweet sign and sunflowers everywhere! He had me read the board, which had scriptures verses, and when I turned around, he was on one knee. He told me he had another surprise for me and took me back to my house where all of our families were waiting for us! It was soooo sweet.”
Anna Claire & Brett, I have prayed for you as I edited the images from your Fondren engagement session. As I see the genuine joy in your beautiful smiles, the verse that keeps coming to mind is “the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Jesus said that in this world we will have trouble, but we can take heart! He has overcome the world! In life and in marriage you will face hard times. Always remember that you are a team. Jesus brought you together, and He will see you through each and every trial. Keep your eyes on Him, and always remember that the JOY of the LORD is your strength!!
I can’t wait to see you again in December as we celebrate you two becoming ONE!
