Liliya & Roman: Crossline Community Church Wedding

It wasn’t easy for a guy from Washington to pass on her Facebook page. She was a girl from Sunny California, tall and tan, spend her afternoons at the beach, and her looks . . . gorgeous beyond words. And lucky for him, she accepted his friend request. They quickly warmed up to one another until his and her page were the only ones they checked. Roman’s cell phone bill tripled, yet in defense he pronounced he’s met the one. Months after he was strolling wit Liliya on the sandy beaches of California, wondering why it took him so long to meet her. After many more trips and FaceTime, Roman arranged for a dinner on a boat in Washington, because the sand and the water were always present in their relationship. And it was there surrounded by the deep blue, where she said yes to the man she couldn’t imagine life without.

Liliya and Roman, I’m out of words. I met you just before your engagement and I remember thinking, this guy absolutely loves this girl. I took a few photo booth photos of you at my friend’s wedding, chatted a few times on the phone and finally met you at your rehearsal dinner . . . and I’m in love with you two. Your care, passion, the sweetest love story, are all so precious. And your wedding day . . . is as close as I got to photographing a prince and a princess and their royal wedding. I’m so so happy that you two found each other, because really the world is so much better with you two together. I wish you happiness and many more smiles as you explore Riviera Maya this week. I’m thrilled to see what God has in store for your marriage and I’m absolutely honored to have been there from the beginning! Love you to pieces, Yuliya.
