“I never dreamed of my wedding… only dreamed of a beautiful marriage.” In this wonderful creative industry that I worked in, I focus so much on providing couple hours with a day of beautiful photography. To be honest, rarely do I stop to think about the day, weeks, months or years that follow a wedding day. So today I share with you what those years after can look like when true love exists. These are my parents: married for 47 years, they have triumphed over cancer…twice. Have raised two successful daughters. They have been poor together and rich together. They have fed, sheltered, and advised countless lost souls. They love with out expectation and give freely, whatever it is they have to offer. I am SO proud to call them Mom and Dad. They are the epitome of where I strive to be in my own marriage and a constant reminder that a wedding is only a day, but a marriage is forever. If you are one of the millions in love, or maybe one of the millions of broken-hearted that need a visual reminder that love always endures, I would love for you to share this as a way of letting my mom and dad know, they are an inspiration to anyone who wants, believes, or is in love. . . . . . #imagesbyamberr #raleigh #wedding #photographer #raleighwedding #raleighphotographer #raleighweddingphotographer #anniversary #marriagegoals #marriage #blacklove #growoldtogether #growoldwithme #aarpphoto #silverfox #risingtidesociety #love #truelove #wokeweddingpros #defytheodds #southernnoirweddings #blackweddingphotographers #blackweddingphotographer #blackbride1998 #soulsreconnected #happilyeverafter #aftertheaisle #wedclique #bustld #whimsicallywed
Robinson in her post said, “So today I share with you what those years after can look like when true love exists. These are my parents: married for 47 years, they have triumphed over cancer…twice. Have raised two successful daughters. They have been poor together and rich together.” Marvin was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1973 and colon cancer in 1987. Then in 2013 he had prostate cancer and in 2014 Wanda was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.
The couple said, “”We made a vow on our wedding day, through sickness and health and have always been determined that we can and will overcome anything. On the days that one of us is down, the other one picks us up.” This couples love story is beautiful and we pray they stay in good health and continue to enjoy life together.
