I love when couples discuss the different tests they were able to overcome in their relationship it speaks to how well they may be able to handle different tests that come in a marriage. Whether it be long distance or losing a job, surviving through hard times makes the good times even better. Read on how bride, LeTeydra discuses those tests she and Kyle had and how it lead them to their engagement. Many thanks to Elle Danielle Photography for sending this one over!
From the Bride:
Early in our courtship, we went to grab a bite to eat and we talked for hours, sharing our thoughts about life. We later realized that this could be a friendship and a relationship built to last forever. Over the next few years, we were blessed with an amazing gift, our daughter, Kyla. She brings so much joy, love, and laughter into our lives, as well as our families and friends, and pretty much anyone she meets. We are so happy that WE were chosen for her. But, not long after the birth of our daughter, our relationship was put to the test of managing it long distance, due to our career paths. There were multiple cities, states, and experiences, but this time apart helped prepare us for the biggest test to date. We managed just fine, and once we were reunited back in Birmingham, the plan for our future together was in full force. We announced our engagement to our family and friends on September 16th, 2014. Through the years that we’ve been together, and all that we’ve learned from our experiences of living far apart from each other, we began to understand that love is not an open hole you just trip and fall into by chance. Love is a mountain you must climb; an ocean you must cross; a storm you must withstand; true love doesn’t just happen by chance. True Love happens by choice, and WE chose to LOVE each other. You must choose to love each other…and then exhibit the grit and fortitude, each day, to earn your way a little higher up that mountain, hand-in-hand, together.”
