Confession: last year, a few of us girl friends gathered weekly for an Esther Bible study. Buuuuut typically for the first part of “Bible study” we talked about men. Or our unique yard-sale purchases, books we were reading, and our love for Target’s clearance holiday candy. But mostly men, let’s be honest. I specifically remember the "Bible study" that began with Rachel telling us about a kind, down-to-earth guy in her small group at church. Queue Alex : ) They were just friends and nothing more, although she admitted he certainly caught her eye! She tried to stay casual about her description of Alex, but due to her words of endearment, I could tell he must be a wonderful man.
Before I knew it, Rachel and Alex were dating, and I was absolutely giddy. Rachel has been my dear friend for several years, and she has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. I knew it was only a matter of time before an amazing guy realized what a catch she is!
In June, these two will be tying the knot at their rustic wedding, surrounded by people who will walk through life with them. And I get to be the lucky one to capture it!
