Joe and Hannah

Wow, I can't say enough about how much I adore this amazing couple!! Back in the spring we spent a few months working at a church in Shreveport, Louisiana where we met this lovely couple who at the time were not a couple. But they were both absolutely the sweetest most welcoming people you've ever met. The kind of people that go out of their way to show love and kindness to even a stranger and the kind of people that just radiate joy. 

Hannah was born in Okinawa, Japan and Joe was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia... and yet somehow they crossed paths in Shreveport, Louisiana and fell in love. Here's is a little snippet of their beautiful story. 

Joe and Hannah met 12 years ago while playing a competitive game of hide and seek with their families in Shreveport, Louisiana and while Hannah had her sights on Joe for the better part of 12 years as they connected in homeschooling programs in middle school and high school. Joe, however didn't pursue Hannah until after college when they ended up in the same church ministry together.... The most amazing thing about their relationship is that they spent 8 months apart, broken up between dating and that fateful day in April when Joe proposed to Hannah. All throughout the time if you asked anyone if they would end up together everyone knew it would happen but no one quite expected it happen the way it so beautifully did. 

Here are some of the highlights from their wedding day!
