The best love stories are worth waiting for.
When a couple chooses God's timing for their happily ever after, there is always an extra big dose of joy.
Bradley and Jennifer couldn't have picked a more perfect June day for the beginning of the next chapter in their lives. When Jennifer told me about the historic church they were getting married in, I knew it was going to be an epic wedding. But it wasn't the location or the beautiful dress or the delicious food that made it so special. It was the people. Jennifer and Bradley are so easy to talk to and eager to share about what God has done in their lives, and their families were the same way.
When Jennifer contacted me, I had already agreed to second shoot at a wedding in Virginia the next day. I knew it was going to make for a crazy weekend, and I'm really grateful for everyone who helped make it possible. This wedding was totally worth losing some sleep over, and I'm so grateful to Bradley & Jennifer for inviting me into their day!
Girls, if you're worried that a first look will take away from the moment you walk down the aisle, that's one worry you can forget about. The first look was so joyful, but the walk down the aisle during the ceremony was even more emotional!
Jennifer told me at their engagement session that her little sister would be the most adorable flower girl. She was a pro, gleefully throwing petals and laughing as she did so! Just look at that face!
The bride and her mom and sisters sang a song during the ceremony, and it was BEAUTIFUL.
The cakes were as scrumptious as they looked! And Chipotle style meals are always yummy.
Open mike is one of my favorite times during the reception--lots of laughter, encouragement, and happy tears.
Highly recommend doing some newly married golden hour photos! Especially if there are mountains anywhere around.
The sparkler sendoff was the perfect end to a perfect day!
Bradley & Jennifer, I loved documenting your beautiful day, and wish you the best as you serve God and tackle life together.
Thanks, too, to all the family and friends who made this wedding so lovely.
