Mary-Charles and Brad are such a precious couple. It was an honor to photograph their Yew Dell Botanical Gardens wedding in Louisville, KY.
Here is their love story written by Mary-Charles!
Brad and I met when I was 17 and he was 21 while working as camp counselors at Camp HiHo. We were both assigned to work at the slip in slide in the afternoons. We had a great time working together. I know we probably both had a little bit of a camp crush on each other, but it didn’t become anything more at the time.
At the end of the summer Brad went back to school at SMU and I finished high school here in Louisville. He then went on to law school and I went away to school at ole miss. Years later Brad came back home to Louisville and was working as an attorney and noticed I had graduated from Ole Miss and was home teaching elementary school in Louisville.
I’ll never forget seeing a Facebook message pop up on my phone and wondering why a guy I used to work the slip and slide with years ago was messaging me now. I quickly called my friend before opening the message and letting him see I had read it but later found out he was asking me on a date. He claims I liked a picture of him at the UK game in the SEC tournament and that gave him the confidence to reach out.
Two and a half years after that first date, Brad took me back to Camp HiHo for what I thought was going to be a fundraiser. When we arrived at the camp I realized no one was there for a fundraiser and Brad asked me to be his wife.
We now have a 2.5 year old golden retriever, Hayes. Brad and I are very thankful for each others love of UK sports, Facebook, Instagram likes and Camp HiHo.
Precious story, right?! I wish them many many more years of love and happiness!
