It is every girls dream to one day meet and fall in love with the love of her life! And when it happens, a love story is written. One of our favorite things of being wedding photographers is leaning how our couples met and fell in love. Each story is so unique and special, and helps us serve them in the best way possible! And now it is time to share our story with you. We want to share everything, from how we met in Las Vegas, to getting married, not just once, but twice, and everything in between!!!
All the lonely days and weeks passed. And on this day. Valentine’s day. It was one of the coldest winter days in Germany. But Douglas was here. Keeping me warm. We were both holding on to something special. A little white box. In the shape of a heart. We began walking. Counting the poles. Nine. And the little wires in between. Twenty-six. And kneeled down. There it was. A little opening amongst hundreds of thousands of locks. It was the perfect place. Between generations of love stories. We carefully placed our lock around the wire. Douglas pulled me in close and gave me a kiss. Telling me how much he loves me. And together, we closed the lock and removed the keys. As we got up, we took a few steps towards the edge of the bridge. Falling into each other’s arms. Turning our backs towards the river. Facing our lock. We shared another kiss.
And tossed our keys into the Rhine river. This was it. We sealed our love. And made a commitment to each other. To never give up! Every time we go back home, we visit the Hohenzollern Love lock bridge in Cologne. Nine poles. Twenty-six wires. To find our lovelock. Remembering the date that brought us together: September 26, 2012 <3
