I have been friends with Rachel since middle school when we went to Sunday school together, and my cute little tidbit is that when Rachel and my best friend Kate would play house, they would always fight over me to be their husband. Of course I was flattered, but I KNEW there was a better man in store for Rachel, maybe a guy with a little hair on his chest who wasn't just 10 years old - someone who could come along and sweep her off her feet. Sure enough, Aria did come along, and his boyish looks and knockout smile were added benefits to his stellar heart for Jesus.
I was stoked to have met Aria back in high school, and it's been so cool growing up with them. I wouldn't have guessed them getting together, ever, but when I heard the news that they were dating, then engaged, all I could do was smile at God's plan in bringing them together.
So excited for you both to keep serving the Lord and loving people, you both shine so freaking bright for Jesus, it's blinding. Love you guys, stay epic.
Super fun shooting with my awesome accomplice Josh Thoreson, and so easy and entertaining shooting alongside Keely Nelson who was so fun to collab with! Checkout her gorgeous shots! (keelyjoyphotography.com/post/aria-rachel)
