Michael & Christina
Michael & Christina are two very special people to me, as in they were friends turned clients!
Christina is a youth pastor in Boston, and also was at North Park around the same time Andrew & I were. The first time we really ‘hung out’ was one rainy April night when Andrew and I got a flat tire in Cambridge on our way home from vacation. Sitting on Harvards campus, I was racking my brain for people I knew in Boston that we could possibly shack up with for the night so our car could go to the shop in the morning (figures that on a rainy Sunday night there are no tire shops open!). Andrew texted Christina, got her address and after we got the spare on we zoomed to her cute little studio where we ended the night on her futon. Seriously – it felt like the best of college sleepovers! Right before we went to sleep, she was telling us about this guy she had gone on a date with – Michael. We chit chatted about him before falling asleep – and 6 months later we saw on Facebook she was in a relationship…with Michael!
We met up in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston where both of them live and love their neighborhood – on the last of the warm evenings in October we grabbed an early dinner (at seriously one of the places I dream about eating almost daily – Ula Cafe) and headed to the park to capture a few moments of these two together a month before the big day.
