I met Madi and Josiah separately at Josiah’s sisters wedding at Union Pine, and together for their Horse Heaven Hills engagement session. For their wedding, Madi and Josiah wanted to do things a little differently. Rather than having a traditional ceremony, they decided on a Rattlesnake Ridge elopement with their closest family and friends.
August 14th, the day of their elopement, was a smoky yet serene morning at Rattlesnake Lake. As their closest friends placed a hand over them and prayed for their marriage, everything in the world seemed so still, almost as if nature itself realized the gravity of the moment at hand. Shortly after friends and family congratulated the happy couple before they departed on a 4.3 mile trek up Rattlesnake Ridge.
Madi and Josiah – your Rattlesnake Ridge elopement is a day I’ll never forget. The deep love you have for not only one another but your faith is truly inspiring. While the hike we all climbed that day presented many challenges along the way, your metaphor for the climb was something I pray you always remember and cling to on your marriage journey. Thank you for allowing me to take part in this day.
