I met Sarah & Steve at The Celery Farm in Allendale, NJ, a location that I have been dying to shoot at. While I am not sure we saw any celery, it sure provided the perfect lush greenery backdrop for the gorgeous couple. Sarah, an elementary school teacher, and Steve, a Marine, met in high school. During their 7 year love story, they have spent a fair amount of time apart, especially when Steve was overseas fighting for our country. We have all heard the phrase, "Distance makes the heart grow fonder", and the collection of love letters that were written between Sarah and Steve adds fire to that phrase.
Last July, Sarah and Steve took their first vacation together (in 7 years). They visited the beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. The first morning there Steve surprised Sarah with a stunning engagement ring. The two joining bands being a perfect representation of their love that has been through distance, but still remains one.
I am sending many thanks to Sarah and Steve for bearing the unbearable heat, having such beautiful hearts and sharing your journey with me! Many thanks to Steve for all that he does for our country. XO
