On October 10th, atop a tree-covered mountain in a quaint town in North Carolina, Anna Grace and Ben said their vows, and became husband and wife. While Anna Grace was having her hair done and “becoming a bride,” I stopped snapping photos for long enough to learn a little bit more about her and her groom-to-be. She told me that they met through church while she was in Middle School, but since Ben was older, a dating relationship wasn’t anything she ever considered.
“I used to say that I wanted to marry someone just like Ben,” she said. Little did she know, that in time, God would reveal that he in fact planned for her to marry not just someone like Ben, but Ben himself. Their paths continued to cross, and when Anna Grace went to college, their relationship grew, and soon enough they found themselves head over heels in love.
They planned this wedding in eight weeks (with lots of support from the bride’s mom and other family members), and it could not have been more beautiful. Thomas and I had a wonderful time at the wedding. We were warmly welcomed by the whole family, and when the day was over, we felt like we were part of the family.
Ben and Anna Grace, thank you for allowing us to be there to capture your wedding day. We were blessed by meeting you, and we’re grateful we got to be there as you began your life together. Mr. and Mrs. Talmadge, we wish you a lifetime full of happiness.
