Jeremy + Carolyn...Engaged!
I've gotten to know Carolyn over the past two years as we've been in the same weekly small group and attended church together. A fellow east-coaster, we bonded quickly over soft pretzels and a deep affinity for cheese.
She has a remarkable story: she taught at a school in China for six years and came back to the States in 2013 and joined our church's Fellowship program, knowing only a handful of people in Colorado. Her heart for the city and for children is so evident. She is incredibly kind, patient, and a wonderful friend.
One day last fall, we were in the car and she just seemed extraordinarily giddy. And she was very insistent that we were home by a certain time that day. Finally I asked, "Do you have a date?" And she tried to hide a smile and said, "Yes!" But she couldn't tell me who it was, just in case it wasn't actually a real date.
But it was, and he's the one in these photos. I don't know Jeremy well, but what I do know is that he loves Carolyn dearly. And for her to fall so fast for him, he must be a very special man.
We had so much fun at their engagement session, which was really one of the first times I hung out with Jeremy. We started at Little Man Ice Cream and then walked around the Highlands for an hour. They laughed the whole time and were just so excited to be doing something in preparation for their wedding.
This session made me feel so at ease and even more excited for their June wedding. I think their big day will be nothing but fun and I can't wait!
