Mandy and Taylor


Mandy and Taylor are two of the most goofy and sweet people I know. When Taylor asked me a few weeks ago what I was doing on homecoming weekend, I had a feeling it was going to be something perfect, and it was.

This was no normal picnic in the park either. Mandy and Taylor began having an annual strawberry picnic as an intentional way of growing their friendship long before they began dating. This morning, when the two alumni came back for homecoming at Harding Univeristy in Searcy, they returned to Berryhill Park for another strawberry picnic.

The moment they got to the park, Taylor could not wait any longer. He immediately got down on one knee. It is rare to find two people so happy just because they are going to spend the rest of their lives together. Shortly after saying, “It’s so shiny,” Mandy said, “We get to be best friends forever!” And that is what it is all about you guys.

Taylor and Mandy, Congratulations! I love you both and wish you the best! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of capturing your special moment. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for the two of you!
