I’m pretty sure that our last few engagement session posts, our couples have all been together for 5+ years!! That’s insane!! I love these relationships that have longevity and have stood strong in the midst of separation. Insert Amy and Elliot. :)
So these guys have some sweet sweet history. They too are animal lovers (a cat and dog but they didn’t make the engagement session cut haha), but more than that, they are beach people! They’ve spent years making history together, experiencing adventures, getting to know they things that make them come alive. Like the beach. If that doesn’t say Maggie Nolan and her love language than I’m not sure what will. For those that don’t know, Maggie loves the beach… like flip-flops, sitting where the water hits the sand, sit out from 9am to 5pm. Just wait, you’ll see us there for a week in August… but this time with Zeke (not sure how that will work with wanting to stay out all day haha). But all that too say, the fact that Elliott proposed at a Lighthouse in Cape May at the beach is so incredible and sweet. It’s permanent. That place is sentimental for a number of reasons. The love addiction in us says Lighthouse = A guide, a constant, a place of hope and safety, a place that realigns direction. How awesome that their engagement started at a lighthouse. Amy and Elliot, Patrick and I honestly can’t wait for your wedding. We are excited to come alongside you in the months to come and share life with you and share that marriage isn’t always calm waters, but at times stressful and heavy seas. As we tell each other, “We accept each other in all our rare forms”… the oceans are no different. But together, you’ll overcome, with your eyes fixed on good light.
