Whitney + Jonathan Married!

Whitney and Jonathan met at Tahkodah during the mission equipping program known as HUT…and this is also where they had their ceremony! Everything turned out beautifully. Everyone rode out into the woods where the ceremony location was–on a bluff in the forrest overlooking the valley. So unique, so intimate. It was a blessing being able to share in this adventure.

Here’s the story in pictures:

The guys…being resourceful and creative. :)

The sweet moment of teaching Whitney how to tie the knot.

Carrie + Nate Married!

Carrie and Nate met at the notorious Camp Manatawny in Douglassville, Pennsylvania, a place that is a wellspring of childhood memories to so many. The magic didn’t actually start there, but years later their paths crossed again. Now, they’re married! The Howells are some of my favorite cousins of all time and I’m happy for a new fantastic cousin. :)

Best of wishes to Carrie and Nate! I’m excited to see God work through you two as Mr. and Mrs. Howell. :) Here are the photos!

Zori + Matt Married!

Zori and Matt are married! It’s been a blessing growing up with such a kind, genuine cousin as Zori. She always had the highest of standards in guys and waited for God’s timing–which led to this day. :) I’m excited to see God continue to shine through Zori and Matt.

Stefanie & Tommy

Stefanie and Tommy are married! Their Searcy wedding was a blast! From the creativity, hand crafted (by Tommy) altar, jeweled shoes (made by the bridesmaids and Stefanie), to the masquerade ball reception, it was so personal and so uniquely Stefanie and Tommy.

Elizabeth & Paul Married!

What a great day. Elizabeth and Paul are finally married! It’s been a blessing to see bits and pieces of their relationship growth over the past few years. And now, they’re Mr. and Mrs. I need to stop before I get all sappy. :)

The Little Rock wedding was wonderful. Lots of candy, pink, desert, and of course family and friends to celebrate with. Check out the photos and leave them a comment!

Kari + Brandon Married!

Brandon and Kari are married! Their wedding fit their style so well in that it was relaxed, personal, and about what matters most: God, family, and friends in a celebration of two lives being joined together.

Brandon and Kari are both so loving and genuine and it was a blast photographing this wedding. They’re an example of what God can do with two people after His own heart.

Ryan + Caitlin

Caitlin and Ryan are now married! I’ve known these two for what seems like forever and it’s crazy to see them all gown up and married. ;) I’d like to say that I played a small part in getting them together, but realistically they probably wouldn’t have been able to stay apart either way. Caitlin and Ryan are so in love with God and so in love with each other. It’s truly great to be a part of the lives of such a loving and genuine couple.

They’re also super cute. :) Here’s the wedding at the classic Harding University Cone Chapel…

Clare + Dylan Married!

Giving someone a ride–normally a pretty normal and ordinary part of college life, but for Clare and Dylan it turned into something much more. A mutual friend needed a friend picked up, Dylan was the man, they met, and now the rest is history. Now through a common purpose and love for the Lord and each other, the future is looking bright. :)

The wedding was at Tahkodah. The style was really cool and I thought it was perfect for Clare and Dylan in reflecting their personality. From the picnic blanket seating to the outdoor reception to the rocking dance floor, it was great.

And for their honeymoon? A camping and kayaking trip! How cool is that? :) Clare and Dylan–thanks for having me be a part of your special day. Stay awesome. :) Here’s glimpse of their wedding story…

Clare and Dylan opted to do the first look–a meeting before the wedding to take a few seconds to relax and actually slow down for a bit. It’s a really special time and it happens to make for some great photos too.
