It’s their wedding day! 🎉 Let’s get these cuties to the chapel because they’re #GietingMarried
Driving out to this weekend’s wedding in Green Bay, WI and reminiscing about being there this same weekend last year for Brad and Susanna’s wedding! One of our favorite themes of their day was how they incorporated Marian symbols into every aspect of their wedding from the designs on their invitation suite, a custom necklace Susanna wore around her neck, the ring bearer carried up the rings tied to an image of Our Lady, they made an offering to Mary after their vows, and entrusting their relationship to Jesus through his mother. There are so many graces in the sacrament of marriage and Mary is generous with distributing those graces to those who seek her intercession. We hope you two have enjoyed every fruit of this first year together and all the many graces in store for the years to come!
Not gonna lie that it is hard being back home after two weeks in Italy, but knowing that we’re headed into a wedding weekend where we get to capture a sweet, holy couple and get to do what we love...it makes it all worth the journey home. And we wouldn’t trade our couples for all the gelato in the world!
Have you ever taken a vacation and immediately upon getting home thought to yourself, “I need a vacation!” Katzie is definitely the go-go-go type for travel, wanting to see ALL THE THINGS, but we committed to spending a few days isolated off in the northern mountains and lakes of Italy to be away from emails, to truly rest, to spend our days on the water, and to ACTUALLY take a vacation during our vacation. 😂 Self-care y’all. ⠀ ✈️ ⠀ Which team do you fall into?! A relaxation queen/king when it comes to travel or the on-the-go see all the things hustler?!
The legend says the first coin you toss into the Trevi fountain will bring you back to Rome, the second coin will bring you a new romance, and the third coin is for marriage. ✨ But it seems I got all three wishes after the FIRST coin because when I returned to Rome I was married to my new romance ❤️ Now here we are, returning again and still throwing coins for the future ahead as we place more trust than ever in Gods plan and timing for our lives.⠀ ✨⠀ What’s one wish or dream YOU hope will come true in the next year?! we will keep this in mind as we toss the next coin in for you!
Pray together as a couple. Your “daily bread” in a relationship is the daily love you have for one another in the patient, kind, never jealous way that you honor each other as St Paul describes in his letter to the Corinthians.⠀ 💕 ⠀ Years ago when we first started dating, Pope Francis encouraged couples to pray for this daily love, because as he joked, “there is no such thing as a perfect husband, a perfect wife and don’t get me started on a perfect mother in law”⠀ 😂⠀ We started a tradition shortly after hearing this and kept it ever since where the first thing we do when we see one another on any given day is to pray the Our Father and replace daily bread with daily love. The Our Father is known as the perfect prayer for it was the prayer Jesus specifically taught us. In the depths of our hearts we constantly ask for Him to give us what we need each day beyond physical nourishments but also spiritual ones to love Him, to love our spouse, and to love others.⠀ 🙏⠀ What prayer has been special in your own relationship to bring you closer to God and closer together as a couple?
