These two have been a couple that I've treasured since day one when I met them. They have been nothing short of amazing to me and I'm so thankful to work with people like them. I know that Haley + John are going to live out amazing lives because they seem to shine brighter every time I see them together. Meeting in college, a South Floridian and a North Alabamian fall in love. You can see their fun engagement session on the Auburn University school grounds here. This wedding day fell together perfectly and will definitely go down as one of my favorites because every part about it and every family member/friend/person made it so much fun. Congratulations to Mr. + Mrs. Stanley! Glad to call you guys friends!

This blog post is dedicated to John's grandfather, Herbert Edwin Stanley, who passed away just days after the wedding. Haley + John were very blessed to be able to share this special day with him + the rest of their family.
"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever." Psalms 23:1-6
Makayla Drake and Zach Wilson. Met on October 28th, 2012. Engaged on October 28th, 2016. Scheduled to marry on October 28th, 2017. If this isn't fate, I don't know what is. What an amazing coincidence that's too perfect to pass by as random. These two were meant to be + I can't wait to be a part of their fall wedding!
