Phil + Laura
Phil and Laura's love story began on a missions trip. They both are a part of the same church denomination (which is actually how I know them!) and every year in Wisconsin there is a missions trip to a Native American Reservation. This week long trip is spent working a Vacation Bible School at the two reservations there. They formed a strong friendship while there...but they were just friends.
Then in 2015, before Phil left for boot camp, Laura came up to Wheaton from Springfield to come to what she thought was a "going away party" for him. However, it lead to what they later called their first date. While Phil was at boot camp Laura wrote him letters and when he finally graduated, they were reunited and Phil didn't waste any time in asking Laura to be his.
"[Our] relationship has been unconventional. It has been fast. It is unexpected. But it is built on years of solid friendship and a desire to serve the Lord better together." ~ Laura Troxel
I was honored to be able to capture their wedding and witness their covenant of marriage before God. It was an absolutely gorgeous day!!
