…it is because of you. -Herman Hesse
I have always been a romantic at heart, believing in true love even when we live in a society that is quick to throw away love when relationships get tough. Once in a while, I will get the chance to see that true love is not just a fairy tale dream.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to capture this elusive dream. Mr. & Mrs. R have shown me that true love is something that can still be strived to achieve. After 19 years of marriage, Mr. & Mrs. R decided to take their final sacrament by renewing their vows in the eyes of God. Surrounded by family and friends, they renewed their promises to each other “to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, ’til death do us part” for the rest of their lives together. When you look at this couple, it is easy to see that the love has not fizzled out between the two of them. When they look into each other’s eyes you would think that they were just starting out in their relationship. We all know that moment, when we are in a new relationship and everything is butterflies and rainbows, and the love will never fade. They are a true example of true love lasting years.
