ABOUT SEE THE JOURNEY

The story of Christian and Deborah begins with travel, is forged by faith, and will forever be changed by love. Those three things molded them into who they are individually. Likewise, those three things brought them together.

They each moved from their homes to the opposite sides of the earth to be with one another: Christian from the left coast and Deborah from London. They met under the Mexican summer sun, each on solo trips, before continuing on a joint American tour through Autumn and Winter. Deborah and Christian fell in love as the leaves turned brown. The two toured five American cities, visited London, met each other’s families, and were engaged within six months.

From the outside, it looks like they’ve changed everything about themselves in a short space of time. However, from the inside, it had taken a lifetime. Everything they had experienced up until they met was preparing them for just that moment, and everything fell into play exactly as it was supposed to.

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.
