the wachtels.

For each of us that were able to be a part of this weekend, I know that we have truly been blessed by the time we spent together celebrating the marriage of Seth and Jill and the goodness found in Christ alone. On Friday night at the rehearsal dinner, Seth shared a verse from Psalm 103 that said, "For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him." Thank you to the two of y'all for presenting to us a pure picture of Christ and His love for His bride, the Church. Praise the Lord! (and enjoy the pictures!)

Mr. and (soon to be) Mrs. Seth Wachtel

We finally found a time when I could take some shots of Jill and Seth before they got married. 6 days left until the big day...I can't believe it's so close. These are all taken in the downtown Raleigh area. Here is one of my favorites from the day:

And a slideshow of some of the others. Can't wait until this weekend! :)

does anyone have a lightbulb?

When we got to Elizabeth's apartment, we noticed that her room was SO dark with no natural light, and only one little lamp in the corner. So we went on an adventure to find her a lightbulb for her 2nd lamp...not knowing how to say it in Spanish or anything. We were successful. :) I finally put together a slideshow of pictures from our time there. Jules and I had so much fun getting to see her and can't wait until she comes home in November!

2 1/2 weeks and counting...

Jill and Seth are getting married in less than three weeks! I met Seth in Wilmington when he moved there in the 2nd grade and then met Jill in college at NC State and it has been a blessing to watch them together! After their engagement in September, I took some pictures of them at Lake Johnson in Raleigh. Here is a little tribute to them as they prepare to commit their lives to each other. :) Oh, and they want to take more pics before they get married because they both have about 4 more inches of hair now, so we'll see if we can fit that in sometime soon!

smokin' hot argentina!

Jules and I ventured to Argentina for 10 days this month to visit Elizabeth and gain a glimpse of what life is like for her there. We had a great time! Summer Project was there at the same time and Daniel and Mikel Bass were a part of that team. Little Madi learned how to dance with her arms up while we were there and decided to take a moment to impress the people on the streets with her moves. It was precious! Hopefully more pics to come if I get a chance to load them. Oh, and the title to this post goes along with the moment when Jules tried to tell an Argentine what "smokin' hot" means in English. Hilarious. Chao for now!
