LYNETTE + MATT
FIVE EVENT CENTER
Before we even arrived we knew it was going to be a special day for us. I mean, it wasn’t even OUR wedding and it was a special day for US. Ha! Many of you know Al and I were the directors at Luther Dell Bible Camp for 9 years before we started shooting weddings full time. Over those years we met thousands of people at the camp! Lynette (and both her sisters) was one of those folks, she came as a young camper and had a super memorable experience there. Camp had made an impact, as it tends to do. She then did what we all do and she went and grew up… but she opted to work for a camp and that is where the paths of these two cross. Camp love is the best. I’ll let them tell you about it!
From Lynette: Matt and I met in August of 2016 at a camp down in Texas to work side by side for a year long fellowship with 12 other people. It took us until about the middle of winter to realize and recognize we had feelings for one another. This is when our late night talks and walks around camp began. We loved spending time together, even when our work already required us to be around each other for 14+ hour days . Our community of friends that were working alongside us supported and kept our relationship accountable. It has always been important that the Lord is first in our relationship and we are so grateful for God’s grace in allowing us to find each other.
How did the proposal happen?
