Ian and Che Che's Wonderful Wedding - Boca Raton Wedding Photography Calvary Chapel

Ian and Che Che's Boca Raton wedding at Calvary Chapel. 

What makes up love?  What is love's contents? What is the very substance of it?  The Bible says this: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails".  
This came to mind when thinking about Ian and Che Che.  Ian and I met several years ago when working on a project in Biloxi, Mississippi to repair damage from hurricane Katrina. He is a fiercely hard worker and has a great laugh.  Che Che is a sweet, quiet girl.  She is always more concerned about others than herself.  
Here is part of their amazing story.

Ian and Che Che were to wed in July. About two weeks before their wedding date Che Che was in a major accident. While she was driving across an intersection in her compact car, a large 18 wheeler dump truck ran through the stop sign and hit her broadside. It completely demolished the car. Initially, she seemed okay. However, in a few moments it was evident something was amiss. They rushed her to the hospital and began running tests on her. She was actually in critical condition for a few days. We were all praying for her health and healing. Ian never left her side. He was always there to comfort and console her. He was truly sacrificial in the way he served her, loved her, and adored her. It was plain to see that the accident almost crushed his heart. As is says above, his love endured. His love hoped. His love never failed.

The great news is that love and prayer prevailed.  Che Che Was determined to proceed with the wedding date as planned. Although she had daily painful regimens of rehabilitation she still continued planning and orchestrating their wedding. She was in quite a great deal of pain but you could never tell. She continually smiled and was so gracious. When Monica and I went to see them she asked what they could do to help us! Che Che Has a truly genuine and generous heart to help others. It is quite humbling to see someone with a tremendously giving nature. It is simply inspiring.

So, they went ahead with the wedding as scheduled. Although Che Che was in a tremendous amount of pain you could never tell it from the  glowing grin and contagious laughter  she shared with everyone. Her  profound love for Ian was radiating from her face. When they walked into the reception they received a standing ovation. And it was well deserved. 

Ian and Che Che you both serve as an inspiring example of true love.

Question:  What about you?  Who has shown you unconditional love?  Who has inspired you the way they loved someone? Who has been a role model of true love in your life?
