emma & bobby : engaged

Okay, engagements are supposed to be happy (none of the drama that tends to accompany weddings has reared it's ugly head yet and you're basically on cloud nine), but posting these photos kind of makes my heart ache. Emma and Bobby's love story continued on after this day into a beautiful wedding and an even more beautiful marriage, but damn I miss them. Neph and I both had the privilege of standing beside these two during their ceremony and partying with them afterwards but since that day in November, I think we've seen them twice? Three times? It stings just a little bit to remember how excited I was on this day with these two because they were just... our people. And, as much as they are still our people, life and miles have gotten in the way. Then again, life and miles have made it that much sweeter to get to look over these precious photos and relive this moment. In a triumph of love and romance, and in a testament to the reconciling power of the Gospel, Bob got down on one knee and Em joyfully accepted his request to share her life with him. It was a sacred moment, and I loved being there with them in it. Hopefully, you will too. ;)
