Paul and Rebecca: wedding :D {southlake, tx wedding photographer}



I'm so happy to finally be sharing Paul and Rebecca's beautiful, spring wedding day from back in March!

From before the dawn 'till the bright, blazing afternoon, everyone did their part to make this day unforgettable :). The guys were hysterical, the girls were lovely, the flowers were enchanting, and the bride and groom were hopelessly in love :D.

Also! My dear, darling friend and birthday twin (just 4 years apart ;) ) Elizabeth Bristol was my second shooter for the day; I'm so thankful for her help and her photos scattered throughout this post :) <3

"Paul and I first met approximately 10 years ago. My twin sister (Joy) and I used to stay the summer at our sister's house in Rockwall and would attend church with her family and that is where Paul and I first made our acquaintance.



paul&rebeccamarch18,2017-8179


Paul had his eyes set on a different young lady, so the summers past without us ever taking any real interest in one another (I was far too shy to notice anybody who didn't introduce themselves).
My sister Jennifer and her family thought that Paul and I might make a good match, so would casually bring the other up whenever the occasion arose. In 2010 I went to Haiti on a mission trip after the earthquake...and so did Paul. Jennifer mentioned this to me and my interest piqued, so the next time I was in Texas, I made it a point to talk to him. That totally fell flat. He remembers a brief encounter with me at my brother-in-laws graduation and not a lot else. In the meantime, Joy fell in love with a different young man from the same church and got engaged while in college. This man, Ben, was paralyzed in 2013 (Feb.) before he got married to Joy. So of course after I graduated college in 2013 (May) I moved out here after landing a job.


paul&rebeccamarch18,2017-8182-2



Paul with his sweet heart of service hung around Ben quite a lot and helped in any way he could. It was at Joy and Ben's wedding, as he was helping with set-up and other wedding tasks and I was bossing him around, that Paul developed a real interest in me. The months following the wedding, Paul and I became friends and enjoyed talking in group events. We went to breakfast at John's Cafe on August 6th, 2014 with his brother and my niece. That was the kick-off of our relationship. He was drawn to how different I was (I liked diners and worked on a vessel offshore) and I was drawn to his heart of service, his love for Christ, and his easy-going nature. He was the very definition of gentleness and hipster :).

paul&rebeccamarch18,2017-8188


We started emailing and getting to know one another on a deeper level, becoming acquainted with the other's strengths, weaknesses, Biblical foundation, testimony, and desires. We became closer and closer and that's how we fell in love.
Now we are ready to start the bigger part of our lives...staying in love and serving God as a unit."

"Becca is honest and sincere. She is loving and has a discerning sensitivity. Becca is a paradox of a girl who loves exploring while being an incorrigible homebody. Becca loves learning how to make new, difficult, or ethnic foods, but her comfort comes from creamed eggs on toast. I love the way that Becca always works to be prepared for life. She loves productivity and thrives in environments that reward structure, discipline, and diligence. I love Becca's sweetness and forgiveness. She gives them to me in the sweetest and most humble of ways. If we have a hard argument, she often writes a card or sends a thoughtful email which completely disarms me. Becca truly loves the Lord and I value our opportunities to pray together and hear her lay our her heart for God. I love Becca's height. I love Becca's hazel eyes. I love holding her hand."

  "Paul is like a watermill, steady and hardworking. The words that I think best describe him are patience, steadiness, methodical, and gentle. Paul is incredibly genuine and has a sensitive heart, which pairs closely with his desires to please others and avoid confrontation/conflict. I love all these things about Paul. Not only do I love these things because they are what make up a large part of his character, but these really do shine as a heart that seeks God's face and desires to love and serve Him more. Paul also is probably the most forgiving person I have ever met, and I desperately love that about him.
One other thing about Paul is that he is SUPER silly. He often says things in hopes of getting a laugh or smile out of someone and he definitely won't let you get away with being too serious. He just wants to relax with friends and family, have fun, and build relationships. I love that about him because it really helps balance out my desire for 'productivity' and because fellowship comes so naturally to him.
One last quick thing about Paul (that I love): he is a bit of a hipster (the real, authentic kind). Not only can he grow a beard, but he lives up to it. He loves to work with his hands and can fix anything. He loves the outdoors. He is intelligent, yet enjoys and thrives with simplicity, and is a walking encyclopedia.
And he loves Bollywood :)."
