I had the wonderful privilege of photographing the 30th Anniversary Ceremony of Victor & Angie on the beach of Summerland, California. It was a beautiful sunset and absolutely magical evening with a quiet beach, their closest friends and family gathered together to celebrate the committment, love, journey and beautiful story of their relationship. As an event consultant and marriage counselor, the theme of the biblical truth of a “three cord strand is not easily broken,” is not only the name of Angie’s consultant business but also the main crux of the evening. The term stems from Christian thought which hangs on the truth that a marriage with Christ continually at the center will not be easily broken. A beautiful illustration was performed during Victor and Angie’s ceremony in which one of the officiants took ribbon, which represented the Spirit of God that bound Victor and Angie together. This ribbon was first wrapped around their hands as they held hands and then once it was secure began to wrap around their bodies, circling around them and with each circle around, a different instance was described from their lives that arose which could have destroyed not only them as individuals but as a couple and after this instance, trial, mountain was named, then the truth that because Christ is central to their relationship, they were not destroyed.
Witnessing the a glimpse into the beautiful journey that these two embarked on together 30 years ago was a privilege, joy and job that inspired deeper faith in God’s commitment to us when we allow Him in.
