Patience is one of the strongest foundations of a marriage. Not only patience with each other, but the patience to endure the trials and tribulations that are thrown at you as a couple.
Steph and John’s road to this day was one full of overwhelming patiences and love. Unlike most people, they didn’t have the novelty of being to be married whenever they pleased. While John grew up in the United States, Steph spent her life in Ireland, which meant that they had to partake in all of the bureaucratic red tape involved in an international marriage. Three years of waiting later, they were finally granted the permissions they needed and were married this past Monday in a simple ceremony on Assateague Island, a place very special to Steph’s heart. The amount of love and patience it took to persevere through such a trying time and to not lose faith is beyond inspiring. They are both such kind hearted people and I was honored to be able to capture such an intimate, special ceremony.
