“This is the promise you made to me
under the lilac tree
you promised that you’d marry me
and be my darling wife.
O such a promise is worth to me my life,
to share it with thee through happiness and strife.
And when some day from me you’re called away
On heaven above we’ll meet again to stay.
Where there’s no sorrow and grief,
And both our hearts will find contentment and relief
For there we’ll never more have to part
And we’ll be locked forever heart to heart.”
Carl Stahl, June 19, 1892
A hand written love letter from my Gr-Great Grandfather.
I photographed a very special engagement session two weekends ago. The gorgeous ring photo above is a preview of things to come 🙂
