USNA Chapel and Officer’s Club Wedding: Julie and Cole

May 3, 2018

I emailed Julie about a last minute schedule adjustment last Wednesday and everything I’ve learned about her was contained in her response. The tone of the email was warm and friendly, juse like Julie’s smile and personality. She also explained that she had been out on a training flight the previous evening and hadn’t finished until 3am!! This was 3 days before her wedding!! So that tells you the second thing you need to know about Julie – she’s a go-getter and a high achiever with an amazing work ethic. As Cole says, “Any time there is a challenge and it seems that it might be too hard, Julie excels. No one can tell Julie she can’t do something because she will give 110%.”

Everything you need to know about Cole, Julie intuitively sensed the very day she met him. In fact, she went home from that first meeting and told her mother, “Today I met the man I’m going to marry.” What makes this proclamation even more remarkable are the facts that Julie had only met him once, while visiting the Naval Academy, she still wasn’t even sure she would attend the Naval Academy, and she didn’t meet him again until a year later. Six years from that first meeting, everything Julie believed about Cole has been confirmed over and over – he too has a strong work ethic, he’s kind, caring, and simultaneously both supportive and protective of Julie.

Susie and I are always particularly honored to photograph the weddings of people we admire and appreciate as much as Julie and Cole for their hard work and sacrifices. The military life is so difficult! (I didn’t mention that Julie and Cole have also been back at work since Tuesday!) We also particularly enjoyed this wedding because of Julie and Cole’s families, who were just as warm and wonderful to us as Julie and Cole, and who support Julie and Cole so much in everything, from their marriage to the hardships of military life. What a blessing!!

Congratulations, Julie and Cole!!!!
