Josh and Amanda’s Apex Engagement Photos
Make it a quick engagement.
Make time for each other, have a date night every week, and remember that the wedding is one day but our marriage will be forever. It’s interesting that when you hear people give advice about having kids it begins with how tough having a baby is but at the end… “it’s so worth it when you hold your baby in your arms”. When we first got engaged we had quite the opposite experience.. everyone we talked to kept telling us how hard marriage is and how much work it would be, and unlike kids… no one shared how wonderful marriage is. That is, until we started our pre-marital counseling through our church. For the first time, we heard from couples that shared real life experiences they had “worked” through, they told us that marriage will rarely be “perfect” but in the end they talked about how happy marriage can be, if you take time to do it right!
