I met Karina through a mutual friend almost three years ago. We connected thereafter and our friendship grew almost accidentally. I say accidentally because we would run into each other all the time at local Jacksonville coffee shops. It seemed that every time I would walk in to get work done, there was Karina. It happened over and over until we finally agreed to hang out ON purpose. Best series of accidents ever. 

One thing you should know about Karina is that she has one of the biggest, sweetest hearts of anyone I've ever become friends with. She loves fiercely and she's an amazing listener who gives the best insight. Her words are so raw and REAL. 

Then, not too far after we had become great friends, Troi came into the picture. 

Karina and Troi had been friends for years before their relationship bloomed into the relationship that overflows with fun, love and meaning. They have incredibly big hearts for people, for each other and for Jesus. These things are evident simply by just being near them. Karina and Troi are also the type of couple that third wheels (like me) LOVE to be around. I could go on and on about how much I love these two but I'll let these pictures show you a small glimpse into the joy that these two bring together. 

Their smiles say everything and I knew I was going to be an absolute blubbery, sobbing mess behind my camera during the ceremony for their wedding.
