A styled wedding shoot for a military couple in Fayetteville, NC
Like a lot of young military couples, Rebekah and Greg (19 and 21 at the time) decided to elope almost six years ago at their local courthouse in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Greg was home for two weeks on R&R from Iraq, and they decided they couldn't wait until Greg returned from deployment to get married. He still had another eight months to finish in Iraq, in what would end up being just his first of four tours throughout their six years of marriage. They didn’t tell their families, but finally Rebekah confessed to her mom a few weeks later that they had eloped before Greg had returned to Iraq. Fast forward six years, and they're still going strong with two beautiful children, four-year-old Christian and two-year-old Ava. It hasn't been easy with long periods of time and distance between them, so to celebrate the love and strength that has endured for six years, they decided to have a “wedding” session with Erin Costa Photography. Rebekah looks incredible in her wedding dress alongside Greg in his uniform. The session at the Cape Fear River Trail was an opportunity to have images to treasure before Greg left again for another two-month training.
