From the bride….”Jake and I have been waiting for each other for over 8 years now. We’ve been longing for our wedding day since we’ve met each other. Our vision for this wedding is a joyful celebration of all the ways the Lord has blessed us in our past relationship and a day of thankfulness for finally allowing us to be married. Neither one of us truly believed that our wedding would ever come; the day itself will be an accumulation of 8 years of anticipation! I can’t even imagine how happy we’ll be after we say “I do!”
And she was right — from the beginning to the end of their wedding day, Jake and Emily were overjoyed, and it showed! I’ve never seen such an emotional groom – it was so obvious that he loves Emily with his whole heart and soul, and he couldn’t help but cry when he saw her for the first time, and said his vows to her because his heart was overflowing. It was an absolutely beautiful thing to witness, and I was wiping away tears at many points throughout their day! Also, I’m convinced that Emily is a real-life Disney princess because animals followed her around ALL day! I kept waiting for the birds to start chirping a song to her and landing on her shoulder. It honestly wouldn’t have surprised me! So be on the look out for some animal friends throughout these images ;) Jake and Emily, thank you for allowing us to capture these intimate, authentic images of your wedding day. You two have a once in a lifetime kind of love, and it’s incredibly inspiring to all those who know you. Love you both and wish you only the best!
As I was shooting these bridal portraits of Emily, I happened to glance over and catch this look on Jake’s face. Total admiration and love for his new wife. You’d better believe I was crying behind the camera for this one!!
Thank you to the amazing vendors that made this day possible:
