Dublin Wedding: Roselle + Andrew

      It only took a few days after Roselle and Andrew first met for them to realize they were going to spend the rest of their lives together.  However long you have to wait, your perfect soul mate is out there, and when you find him or her, it just feels right.  And so begins the "Happily Ever After" fairy tale.  Getting to know Roselle and Andrew, and hearing about the paths they took before they found each other, makes you believe in this kind of beautiful destiny.

       An excerpt of dialogue from their storybook romance went something like this:

       "Yeah, I'm all that and a bag of chips."  Andrew joked.

       "No you're not, you're wholesome like a bag of apples."  Roselle countered, and thereon nicknamed him "Fuji Apple."  

       Andrew is from Louisiana, and courteous with good southern manners, politely asked if she was sensitive about her height, and when she said "no," he made a request.

       "In that case, can I call you "My little one?"  

       Roselle sarcastically retorted, "Am I yours?"  

       Andrew simply said, "I hope so."

      Last weekend, Andrew and Roselle were married in a beautiful church ceremony in Dublin.  Their love is the type that's meant to be: kind, courageous, and joyful.  We feel privileged to have gotten to know Andrew and Roselle and document their special day.  One can't help but feel inspired by their love.
