"In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."
The sun rose up behind her grandmother's antique lace wedding gown and illuminated "their field". The field that Stewart started loving Ruthanne on a night camping with friends in college. The field that Stewart professed his love to her in a beautifully and unashamedly romantic gesture of reenacting the scene where Mr Darcy professes his love to Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice. The field where Ruthanne said, "thank you but let's just be friends." The field where they, one day ended up getting engaged because Stewart did not give up.
And then, on a dewy August morning, I watched them walk towards each other, then run, ending a tearful and joyful embrace.
This kind of love is rare and I was so honored to document the day for them.
Their wedding day.
