Tennessee River Place | Abner & Edely

I think it's pretty accurate to say that Abner was a bright spot in my college career. Saw him around and they showed a video of him being a student missionary on the island of Palau (it actually had a bit of an influence in ME going out as an SM on the island of Majuro). I always knew he was hilarious, but I don't think I truly understood until I sat next to him for a semester in Chemistry my last year there. Both equally lost, we got together with a few others to form THE best study-group. EVER.


It was in the middle of a study session where he showed us a picture of the ring...naturally, me and the other girl in the group pounced on it and vibed that he dispel all details of his plan. Enter miss Edely.


It didn't take long...just a couple hours sitting and chatting with them about anything, everything and nothing, and I found out how equally cool she was =) They are crazy about missions, summer camp, and God...(they're the first couple to pray with me at the consultation meeting). Hearts of gold, both of 'em. They had such an appreciation for photography--something I LOVED and appreciated so much. How could I refuse? ;-)


K, I'll get to the pictures...just gotta say though, IT WAS A BLAST. Perfect blend of humor, cuteness, gorgeous views, and fun. Love you guys!

Edely had teamed up with a friend to try to get shells from Palau for their Unity ceremony -- they literally got there that morning I believe. Suuuuch an awesome idea.

A bit into the ceremony, I noticed a few guys adjusting their ties. At first it was sporadic, but then there was no way it could've been coincidence. Haha, that's when I realized that they adjusted their ties every time they said the word "love."

And maybe I'm just a happy little islander at heart, but just imagine the bubble pictures with "I'm Yours/Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Straight No Chaser playing. Magical.

Saw this throughout the ceremony--finally figured out that they were Live-streaming it for a couple of our friends that couldn't make it because they were in Korea.
