Kyleigh & Thomas have such a beautiful love story.
They met on a missions trip in Ireland in high school, but with Kyleigh living in the U.S. and Thomas in Northern Ireland, they didn’t get the chance to embark on any sort of relationship. That is until Kyleigh began feeling called to pour her heart out to the people in Northern Ireland post-college and move there as a missionary. I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet couple while in Ireland last year in one of the most amazing landscapes I’ve ever seen!
Kyleigh had contacted my friend, and local artist, Melody McMunn, who created for her a crest with imagery that symbolized the current phase of life she was in, transitioning into so many new things, while still remaining constant to character traits The Lord had instilled in her over the years. It was such a beautiful piece that seemed to perfectly tie into the history of families in this part of Europe that almost always seemed to have a crest for their family line. Melody also recreated in calligraphy, a love note Thomas had written to Kyleigh.
Now these two are engaged and the major parts of their story are only just about to be written!
It was a gloomy, sterotypical Ireland evening at the base of these amazing cliffs and black, hexagonal shape rocks that make up Giant’s Causeway, much like the feel of this cozy, late fall evening! 🙂
