We had a handful of really young couples this year and I enjoyed watching and learning from them. Anna and Benjamin got married six weeks after their college graduation and they couldn't have been more in love. Some frown on marriage at such a young age but I watched these couples and confidently knew they had everything it takes to be successful in life together. They had more figured out than most of my older couples.
Truthfully, I think it's because they have less 'figured out'. They aren't tainted by the world yet. They don't know to build walls and defenses. They just grow together, plain and simple. Will they wake up at 30 and wish for their own identity? I don't know. But who cares! I got married far later than they did and I still wake up and wish for that at times. It's human nature to need companionship just as much as we long for space and identity. Having a balance is what I think these young couples are able to master like others struggle to do.
Without further a do, I give you Anna and Benjamin's gorgeous wedding with vendor credits at the bottom.
