This is definitely a hiking couple! When I pointed to a rock and asked if they could get up there in their engagement outfits, they didn’t hesitate. Hannah was almost up there before I could blink! What a wonderful couple with adventurous spirits.
Hannah and Josh met at church. It was a small community so it was easy to get to know each other and each other‘s families. Then they developed a strong friendship when they started working together at a local Chick-fil-A. (So many good things come from Chick-fil-A!) For a while they even managed a shift together for 17 hours every single Saturday!
Their friendship blossomed as they started to hang out more together. This included multiple hiking dates as this was one of their favorite things to do. She was enamored by the strong anchor of his faith. She loved how intentional he was and how perfectly he fit in with her family. He was attracted to the fact that she loved his goofiness and was super intelligent.
Friendship blossomed into love which grew to something even more. He had planned everything perfectly for a very special occasion. Her mom was hiding in wait on a designated mountain spot, ready to take pictures. They hiked up the mountain; then at the perfect time, he popped the question. And of course she said yes!!
Now they are going to be married and I can’t wait! What a beautiful and wonderful relationship that started on a foundation of faith, progressed through a beautiful friendship and has now grown into love and marriage. Now Hannah and Josh will be forever-partners as they navigate through the all the ups, downs, curves and discoveries on the hiking trails of life. Congratulations Josh and Hannah!! I know the very best is yet to come I’m so happy for you both!!
