I had known Aby pretty much my entire life, but we only got close near the end of our senior year of high school – the decision of choosing a place of higher learning started conversation. We both attended the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, were roommates starting our sophomore year, had the same group of friends, served in ministry together – pretty much watched each other grow up. And it was great to hear that he had found the love of his life in Shaina, friends from the same home church. And I know say it every time, but I love hearing about relationships that grew out of a friendship – those are the best!
They are going to be having a formal engagement ceremony in June, so they wanted to take a couple quick pictures for their save the date cards – at least that was the story Shaina heard. Little did she know that, while they were ‘waiting for me to show up’, Aby would pop the big question!
Their wedding will be in the summer of 2010, so we’ll be having a ‘fuller’ e-session later this summer, so definitely keep an eye out for that!
