Such a special post for me today… Brittany was one of the first girls I met when I first moved to Atlanta. I had just started attending a new small group when Brittany had expressed to the group that she was looking for an apartment herself, and the funny thing was that I was looking for a roommate! We decided why not live together! Having known each other for about 2 weeks, we got together for dinner… chatted about life, how we were both single gals, and all things in between. At one point or another, we talked about how I thought online dating was such a great way to meet someone at this point in our lives… focused on our careers, not really looking for the guy you’d meet at the local bar… we were in search of a strong Christian man, and wouldn’t settle until God brought them into our lives. Admittedly, I was probably more “in search” at the time, while Brittany sat back and reassured me that she was “good” and happy in her independence and focused on work (now if only I had that peace about it at that point in my life!) I knew I liked her!
After much reluctance.. weeks later one afternoon Brittany called me while I was back in NJ shooting a wedding… “I think I am going to join eHarmony…”. I may have been more excited for her that she was!! If any of your blog followers know me… I am a huge online dating advocate. I would recommend it to anyone out there…. in fact, that’s how I met my husband 🙂 Anyway… back to Brittany & Clint… just a few weeks later, “I went on a date tonight… and his name is Clint, and he is so funny!”. After she told me all about their date, I thought to myself… I already like this guy and I haven’t even met him! It only took one meeting for me to realize how great of a guy Clint is. I cannot say enough about his character, his hysterical personality, and how he is truly steadfast in following God. It is such a blessing to know that your closest friends are with exactly the person that God has picked out for them. And on top of it all… they have an absolute b.l.a.s.t together!
Brittany and Clint… I could not be more happy for you two. You are both such amazing friends and I cannot wait until you wedding in June! I had such an amazing time shooting your engagement shoot last weekend and I cannot wait to share a few of my favorites!! Love you both to pieces!!!!
