Love. Two consonants and two vowels. Put them together and they make all the difference. Julie and Scott’s love story is much the same as anyone else’s. Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Girl falls in love with boy. Except this story – their story – is different. Why? Because life is all about second chances. And opportunities to live richly.

Julie and Scott met at TGI Fridays. Scott felt it with the first hug. Julie was wooed by the heated seats of his Subaru. When Scott’s life took him to Waterloo, Julie took a leap of faith. A leap that turned into a lifetime this past Saturday, when Julie and Scott were married at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Cedar Falls.

Let me guess… you can’t help feeling like you recognize these two. Well, faithful blog readers, you should! Remember Mary and Jeff? Julie is Mary’s sister and served as her maid of honor at their May 1 wedding. Scott proposed a few weeks after. These two don’t mess around. The wedding was on the calendar for just a month and a half later. Mary recommended me to her sister, and I was SO excited to photograph another Wold wedding! Honestly, I almost feel like part of the family now – like an adopted cousin or something.
