As I sit here writing this, I can’t help but be overwhelmed with… gratitude. I’m grateful for every minute that we get to spend doing what we love. I love that I get to spend one of the happiest days with people that are so in love each other and want to join their lives together. I’m grateful for my Father’s love. I’m grateful for for the ability to document love as I see it.
Brett and Ashley met the summer after their sophomore year while attending the University of Alabama in Huntsville. One night after seeing “Across the Universe” together, Brett asked Ashley if he could kiss her, and she said “No”. Luckily, Brett kept pursuing Ashley, and after winning a bet a few months later, he finally got that kiss he had been after. After they had been dating for a little over a year, God called Ashley to the World Race- an incredible, but long journey around the world. Ashley wasn’t quite sure if Brett was “the one”, but Brett and Ashley both knew that God had something incredible in store for them. In August 2009, Ashley left, and Brett waited. Soon, Jesus brought Ashley home and they decided that they had been brought together to serve Him in a loving and wonderful life together.
Thank you, Brett & Ashley, for letting us be with you in this first part of your story together. We love you both!
