Things really DO happen for a reason, and I believe there is a master plan in place for us all.... I was reminded of this when Ryan and Shamai told me about their destiny and undeniable love that they found within each other. Ryan was heading back to the Army and while he was in line at the airport, he noticed a beautiful blonde in front of him, and knew at that moment that he had to meet her...except he couldn't even open his mouth to talk to her because he was too nervous!....what he didn't know at the time is that this beautiful blonde would become his wife 6 months later. He also didn't know that she was boarding the same plane and was heading to the same exact location he was heading to: back to their Army base in Tennessee. There is no longer a need for words. The images speak so loudly yet in such a calming and safe way... Ryan's first look at Shamai as she was walking down the aisle

Here are just SOME of my favorites: Rece will surely break a few hearts along the way...
