Philip grew up in Barbados while his family was doing mission work there and it has given him a free-spirited, compassionate and honest outlook in life that is so refreshing.
He disarms people instantly and loves to be outside – especially on a bike.
Even in the beauty of the celebration of their commitment was pure joy. You might also remember this wedding’s contemporary venue, CAM Raleigh, from our feature on Kelly & John’s creative architectural wedding (photo’d by Carolyn Scott) and it turns out that Liz and Philip were actually the first couple ever to get married there! That truly is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about us!
I was overwhelmed hearing the words pour forth from the mouths of their loved ones, “Oh!
precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow; No other fount I know, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.” It doesn’t happen very often, but in that moment tears welled up in my eyes as my understanding of who Christ really is, reached a new depth.
I am an extreme extrovert who loves a good coffee shop, conversation, art museum or book.
Growing up in the mountains of Salt Lake City, I have an obsession with exploring as many cities as I can with Philip – and now I shakily attempt to bike around Raleigh (where we live) and I’m loving the learning process 🙂 A non-profit called Step Up is where I spend 40 hours of my week helping ex-convicts or marginalized individuals obtain employment and change their life.
