Stephen and Dinae’s wedding was truly precious. I knew these two people before they were a couple. I got to see them take their first steps toward falling in love. It was a privilege then to return later, and be the one to document the day when they tied the knot and made their promises of forever.
What captivated me most about Dinae as a bride was her innocence. She and Stephen were fairly young when they got married, but so solid and committed to each other. The day was about them, but also about their families. I also found a piece of their story in the details they added, like the beaded flowers Dinae made for herself and Stephen, as well as for her bride’s maids and the groom’s men.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
