When I think about Catherine and Rafael’s wedding, the words “fun, red lipstick, true love, preciousness, and dance party” all come to mind. That should be enough to get you excited for the photos I would think!
The love that Catherine and Rafael have for one another is that kind that you can feel. It makes you want to hug your own spouse closer and cherish your own relationship. It is a testament and I loved witness it become marriage. I got to be with Catherine and her father as they waited to walk down the aisle, and it’s moments like that I feel like my privilege on a wedding day is precious. It was so touching as the prayed together moments before she was to become a wife. When Rafael saw her for the first time, the room was electric. It was truly one of wedding days filled with magic. With a wedding party of 20, we had quite the blast hanging out with all of them on the beach and they were just plain fun!Â After prayers and toasts, tears of joy and formal dances, the party continued into the night… the dance floor literally bouncing up and down from the jumping. When Katy Perry came on everybody screamed and the dance party was on. These are my kind of people!

Where do I begin? We clicked with these two. We clicked in a big way. Stephen called us up one day and let us know that he wanted to give his sweet wife a photo session for Christmas. They lived in Alabama and were headed to New England for his gift to her for Christmas, and a photo session with us would be icing on the cake. He said that he loved our work and they were believers as well, (in Jesus), and that it seemed like it would be a good fit. He was spot on. We parked the car and when we got out to get our gear situated, he walked up with his bride and said, “Are you Bethany and Dan, because I’m Stephen and this is Rebekah.” That was all it took really… we loved his big Texan style and her grace of a southern belle right then and there.
He is from Texas and She hails from Alabama, where the two live now. After a whirlwind, and I do mean whirlwind, of a romance, they were married and living life to the glory of God. It was so fulfilling to us to be with a couple, who like us, met and courted, knowing the path they were on was undoubtably marriage. Within 4 months of being engaged, (which was an EPIC engagement story by the way… involving her entire family and the 50 yard line in the stadium of “roll tide” Alabama), they were married. It’s fast and furious love stories like that which get me crazy excited, because I know what it’s like to know… to know immediately that you are in the presence of the one. The one you will love forever.
So enjoy our take on their love story. We hope these images will be a witness to you, of just how deeply they love one another.
