“From every wound there is a scar, and every scar tells a story. A story that says, “I survived”.”

I imagine for Beth & Ryan, the words “In sickness and in health” mean a lot more to them than most couples reciting their vows, because it was during Beth’s grueling battle with Sarcoma (an aggressive and rare form of cancer) that Ryan decided that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. They stuck together through their lowest moments, and they came out stronger and more in love with each other than before.

Beth is truly one of the most upbeat person I’ve ever met in my life. Her positive, cheery outlook on everything throughout the day was contagious, and it was truly an honor for the Hoffer team to document this day. Special thanks for Jim for tag-teaming this wedding!
