Nan + Stan // An Anniversary Session 57 Years in the Making Bay City, Texas


This is probably one of the sweetest post I've put together yet. This couple is near and dear to my heart. Nan is Brandon's grandmother, Bebe's best friend. And I've gotten to know Nan and her husband Stan through Bebe. 

Quick little story about Nan and me. I remember the Valentine's after Brandon and I got married I was working with Bay City Floral to arrange floral arrangements for Valentine's orders and also delivering those arrangements. And I got paired with Nan! She knows our little town like the back of her hand, so she was our designated driver, and me, well I was the go-fer and delivery girl unloading the arrangements and bouquets delivering them to their destinations! We shared story after story about how her and Stan met, how Brandon and I met, how we were raised, how she knew Bay City so well, and how we both were saved. Talk about really getting to know someone. 

Nan, we really made a great team that day!

When I was working with the Bay City Magazine to help put together their wedding issue my editor, Julie, wanted to do an anniversary piece for the magazine, and the first couple I thought to feature was Nan and Stan!! I sent Nan a text message, and she responded right away. She talked it over with Stan, and they were all for it! I love it when old people are so up with technology.  ;)
From Nan: Our foundation of marriage was and is Christ. 

I'm not too sure when the last time they had their picture taken, but I'm so glad I was able to gift them these images after our little mini session. Congratulations on 57 years of marriage, you two! We love y'all so much and so excited to be apart of your journey together. Thank you again for letting me capture these images for you!
