Meet MacKenzie and Zach! They have been married for ten months and live in Macon, GA where MacKenzie is a wedding and portrait photographer, and Zach is an Environmental Specialist for Triple Point Engineering.
When I asked MacKenzie what three words she'd use to describe Zach she said: servant-hearted, energetic, and kind. Zach said: creative, patient, faithful.
On any given Saturday you could find these two at the pool soaking up some rays, then watching a movie, ending the day with some grilling ("Zach can grill like a boss" - MacKenzie) and having a fun dessert!
What do you love about your marriage most?
MacKenzie: I love that we compromise so well. We both feel called to go to Africa. We are so in step with one another. We are focused on the same goals.
Zach: We are focused on our relationship with Christ. I like how we can learn from one another. She teaches me something new everyday.
What advice would you give to someone who just got engaged?
MacKenzie: I would advise them to go to premarital counseling. A lot of people getting married today take a lot of time planning for their wedding day and not enough time planning for their marriage. Marriage is hard and what a transition it is. It really takes effort and hard work. People don't talk about it and you can talk it through and get wisdom on that.
Zach: I would also advise it. I would tell them to also read You and Me Forever by Francis Chan. It is everything marriage should be. Even if you're married you should read it.
How do you honor your spouse in conflict?
MacKenzie: I need time to think through it. We try to realize this about one another. If I get quiet Zach will leave me alone for a few minutes to let me think through.
Zach: I want to talk it through right then. And she'll try to think through it quickly to help me get through it.
Tell us something goofy about your relationship.
MacKenzie: We love snapchat. We love just doing weird things on SnapChat. One time, Zach did a dating show and used all the different filters and had a different voice for each one.
Zach: We just do weird things no matter who is around. We are pretty goofy in general.
MacKenzie and Zach really are such a joyous couple, I loved talking to them!
