There are people you meet throughout life that you like, love, cherish, or some combination of the three. Then there are people who touch your heart in a huge way, people who you can truly call one in a million, people who make you better just by knowing them. Without a doubt, Wayne and Sheila belong in that second category.
I have watched them live real life together as they have been engaged. From family illnesses, to work struggles, to other big and daunting issues, these two have gone through the fire together, and came out holding hands on the other side. Their wedding day was nothing short of heartfelt and beautiful. Reading handwritten vows to each other, both Wayne and Sheila shed tears as they spoke of their past, and the hope of a new life together.
Wayne and Sheila, both Nathan and I are so grateful that we know you. Spending time with you before and during the wedding day was uplifting and inspiring. We love you both, and know that whether in a trial or in a season of joy, you two will hold hands and bring each other through it all.

Sheila made the most beautiful bride...
If it wasn't so cold, I could have photographed snowy ring shots forever!
Sheila and Wayne arrived to spend time with guests as we all headed upstairs, and immediately began their first dance as husband and wife.
As the guests danced, they left notes in a suitcase for Wayne and Sheila to open on the first anniversary.
And the night ended just as the day had begun, with laughter and joy for the newly married couple
