Sarah & Jeff Hermeling | Wedding at One Blue House Venue, Fort Worth, TX


I met her before she met Jeff.  We nearly collided in a hallway at Gateway Church. Sarah, beautiful and joyous, is welcoming… I was new… and she made me feel at home. With her sincere love for people and Jesus, I knew it was only a matter of time before a man would win her […]
