Can we talk about a dream outdoor sunset engagement session?! These two are truly beautiful people both inside and out, and if you know them, you know that is a big understatement. Their story began on September 8th, 2015, at Gateway Church in Grand Prairie, Texas—Preston laid eyes on someone who would forever change his life. After a short conversation in the church parking lot with this beautiful girl named Macy, he knew that he had to get to know her better. Through a mutual friend the two began talking and it wasn’t long before Preston asked Macy out on a date. Though Macy knew Preston would soon be leaving the country to complete his commitment at a missions base 7,000 miles away with an 8-hour time difference between them—she couldn’t help but open her heart to the possibility of something more.
The famous saying, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder,” was certainly proven true in those 6 months of long distance. They grew stronger as individuals and as a couple during this season, and in the Spring of 2016 Macy was able to go visit Preston. During that time they felt more confirmation than ever before that God was bringing them together. Macy returned home and graduated from college, while Preston stayed and completed his commitment through the summer. After Preston arrived back in Texas, he knew what he had to do. Unbeknownst to Macy, he began working and saving money for their future together. Then, on January 20th, 2017, Macy said a big YES to forever with the man of her dreams. Now they are excited and more ready than ever to leap into the next chapter of their lives together!
