Dylan + Kacie | engaged

This post has been sitting in my drafts folder for about a month and a half because every time I sit down to write, I feel like I can't quite find words to explain how awesome these two are. When I first met Dylan and Kacie, I thought to myself what everyone else likely thinks to themselves, "Um, these two should be models." And in a very real sense - they are, except from the inside out. They model a love that radiates all kinds of things, like humility, tenderness, patience, grace, and a genuine feeling of ease when they're together. 

What was most special to me about our time together was being able to share in some of the places that held meaning and memory to them on the campus where they met - like where they graduated, the dorm where they first met, the bench that overlooks the baseball field... What a treasure it is for me to be invited into these spaces - it fills my heart like few other things do. 

And I just have to say - Dylan and Kacie have some seriously big hearts and it's one of the reasons that I couldn't be more thrilled to know them AND to be there when they join those hearts together in marriage. A few weeks ago, my grandmother passed away and I shared a little bit about her in a post on Instagram. Shortly after, I received an email from Kacie that was filled with heartfelt words of encouragement and compassion from her and Dylan - it was exactly what I needed in that moment. Yet another reminder of why I'm thankful to do what I do - and a challenge to follow through when I feel led to reach out to someone in kindness.  

Enough of the rambling... enjoy some sweet and sunny images of these super wonderful humans. :)
