Maggie and Caleb were head over heels in love and knew that the moment had come for them to tie the knot. They had spent months planning the special event and had meticulously considered every aspect. They wanted everything to be perfect on their wedding day. But, little did they know, they were in for a shock that would cause Maggie to pass out at the altar. They had been through a lot together, but nothing prepared them for this!!!
They had known each other since attending the same high school in Asheville, North Carolina. They had mutual friends as well, so the two ending up together seemed to be the work of fate. The thought of dating Caleb had crossed Maggie’s mind before, but she never thought that it would ever happen. On the day of their wedding, however, Maggie found something out about Caleb that she didn’t quite know how to deal with.
When Maggie and Caleb had completed high school, however, the pair began to see each other differently. Maturity had changed their priorities and something had changed, but neither of the pair could pinpoint exactly what or where. But both Caleb and Maggie knew that they wanted more.
After deciding to date, they knew that it was worth the wait – and it was what they both had wanted all along. Maggie and Caleb had both been diligent students at school, and they were both working towards their own goals. They supported each other, encouraging the other to reach the goals that they had set for themselves.
Caleb was dead set on becoming a Marine, and nothing was going to stop him. But what the unwitting duo didn’t realize was that, over time, they would become much more than pals. They’d be famous on the internet in no time. However, it wasn’t until 2013 that the couple finally gave in to their increasing affections for one another. Their families were unsurprised when they announced their relationship. Caleb and Maggie were pleased as their relationship became stronger and stronger.
And it wouldn’t be long before they decided to take the relationship to the next level. Caleb had no doubt in his mind that he wanted to spend his life with Maggie. He knew that she was the love of his life. So, the only thing left to do was to tell her how he felt. He visited a jewelry store and picked out the perfect engagement ring.
Even though they were young, Caleb knew that Maggie was the only woman for him. But did Maggie feel the same way? After asking Maggie’s parents for permission, all he needed to do now was pop the big question. When the day arrived, he felt his heart race as he asked Maggie to be his bride and took the ring out from his pocket.
She answered yes after what felt like an eternity of waiting. Caleb and Maggie were only 22 years old at the time. They knew, however, that their love would be enough to conquer any hurdles they faced. Maggie was normally unflappable, but the stress of wedding planning began to wear her down. Caleb began to be concerned as well. All of the preparations were far more extensive than they had anticipated and took far longer than they had anticipated.
They found that they were spending less time together, and it put a strain on their relationship. But would it all be worth it? The couple was struggling to manage their time, juggling their busy careers and the wedding preparations. Nevertheless, the pair was determined to make it work. And the fact that Caleb and Maggie shared the same religious views eased some of the burdens.
They both had faith that God would guide them through this difficult time in their lives. But they had no idea exactly what He had planned for them. Luckily, the pair was accustomed to difficult times. So, they remained steadfast in their decision. In Caleb’s eyes, he finally had the love of an incredible woman and he was prepared to do anything to keep her.
He often expressed gratitude to his lucky stars for Maggie’s presence in his life. He pledged to support, protect, and encourage her for the rest of his life, just as he had done in high school. Caleb and Maggie were unusually sophisticated for their age. Maggie relates this to the fact that she was responsible for holding down the fort while Caleb was away. He was frequently serving his country, having realized his ambition of joining a Marine.
However, as honorable as his occupation was, it put a lot of strain on both of them. Maggie often didn’t know where Caleb was, or when he was coming home. Caleb had achieved his goal of becoming a marine at the age of 19, three years before their marriage. This was not only an impressive achievement but it also let the couple get a very good idea of what their life together would be like.
The question, however, was how would this affect them once they were married two of them didn’t go overboard with their wedding plans as they preferred to keep it small and more focused on their beliefs. They did face a problem, however. All the photographers they contacted were already booked. The wedding day was drawing closer and closer. The photographer was still something that seemed unattainable. Then a miracle happened. One of their friends suggested a popular photographer called Dwayne Schmidt.
Because of his competence and talent, the couple knew he was in high demand. They decided to contact him in the hopes of finding out whether he was accessible. They were not optimistic, however, given the short notice. Schmidt met with Caleb and Maggie a few weeks before the wedding. When he showed them his portfolio, they were blown away by his work. They decided to contact him to photograph their wedding right away because he was definitely the best option. They brought up the dreaded subject of his availability.
To their great delight, he was available on their special day. They never thought that this perfect photographer would change their lives forever. Finally, everything had fallen into place. The happy couple could not imagine the possibility of anything going wrong. About a week before their wedding they received a phone call that shattered their world.
The devastating news sent the couple scurrying to find a solution. Their entire wedding seemed like it was about to fall apart after that phone call. The couple had no idea how to handle the twist that life had just thrown at them. Dwayne called the couple with news that threatened to derail everything. Their perfect photographer required an emergency surgical procedure. He had to have kidney stones removed. Although his surgery was a week before the wedding, it would be quite a serious operation and there was no assurance that he would be well enough to take the photos of their special day.
Maggie and Caleb decided that they would just stay the course and let nothing derail their wedding. The couple refused to stop having faith. They had faced greater hardships before, such as whenever Caleb was away. This was just one more obstacle that they knew their faith could help them overcome. Whether it was the power of prayer, or the progress if modern medicine, the couple was ecstatic to hear the news that Dwayne’s surgery had been a success and that he was recuperating.
There was still about a week before the wedding for him to heal so the couple tried to find something to distract themselves. They focused on everything which was still going well and put their problems into perspective.A few days before the wedding, Caleb called the photographer. He was anxious and worried when he called, but he wasn’t prepared for what he told Caleb. Dwayne had completely healed in time for their wedding.
As stressful as it had been, everything was back on track for their big day. The couple’s prayers seemed to have given them their own miracle. Caleb had a reputation for upholding tradition in all aspects of his life, but on his big wedding day, he wanted things to be a bit different. He had something particular in mind for their photographer, and when he told him his idea he was thrilled about it. Caleb reached out to the photographer and he requested that they do some very special photos of the couple before the ceremony.
When the big day finally came, Dwayne was happily snapping away, capturing all the special moments at the wedding. He was taking all kinds of photos for the couple and their family, documenting them as they got ready for the most important day of their lives. And just like Caleb requested, the photographer knew that he would be entering the same room that Maggie was in at some point.
He was well-prepared for this moment, but he still wasn’t sure what would happen. Nevertheless, he was curious and excited to witness the outcome of all the photos.
Breaking TraditionMaggie was around the corner, completely unaware that Caleb was even there. The rest of the women in the room saw Caleb enter, and then there was an air of excitement and anticipation in the room as they all waited with bated breath. Caleb, with his eyes down, was becoming more and more nervous as he walked closer and closer to Maggie.
They had both waited for this moment for such a long time, and now it was finally upon him. He could only imagine what his beautiful soon-to-be wife looked like behind the wall. It was a moment he will never forget. The couple was emotional, but they wanted to make sure that they said everything they wanted to say at this moment. Tears rolled down Caleb and Maggie’s cheeks as they decided to say a prayer. With trembling voices, hands firmly locked together, they asked God to bless their marriage. It was an overwhelming moment for everyone who witnessed it.
Both Caleb and Maggie asked for the support and guidance they were seeking, and they asked that God go with them into their marriage until the end. They wanted to share their lives together according to the will of God. Everyone in the room was totally silent, on tenterhooks. They wanted to make sure that Maggie had heard every word that Caleb said. Right before the ceremony began, and with teary eyes, Caleb spoke. With shaking hands, Caleb asked God to bless his beautiful bride-to-be and to also bless his amazing future family.
Caleb believed that it was right to ask for this before they were married, and Maggie was completely touched by all of this. She covered her face with her hands and knew that she had made the right decision. The couple never suspected that the moment would be shared by so many. The beautiful moment had been documented, and family and friends who had not seen the moment in person were able to witness the whole thing. It was a great way for the couple to be able to share their moment with everyone who hadn’t been able to make it to their wedding. Most of all, they were thankful for Dwayne being there to capture the moment.
Suddenly, more and more people started to ask them if they could see the touching photograph after they had heard about it. Of course, Maggie and Caleb were happy to share it with all of their guests. At the end of the big day, the couple couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out. Although it was totally overwhelming at times, all they could think about was the fact that they were now together forever. With that in mind, Caleb and Maggie were very thankful to their guests, and to Dwayne in particular.
Their day would not have been nearly as amazing without being able to share it with these special people. And when they look at the moment that Dwayne captured so beautifully, they know that they will never forget the promises they made that day.
