From our very first meeting with these two, I knew there would be something so uniquely special about capturing their day. They both have two of the biggest servant hearts. So much so it makes you just want to love on them even more!! I mean, if you can talk about your mouth retainer with your groom during portraits, you know you’ve hit the lottery with the best couples ever. Also, I promise it’s not as weird as it sounds – he’s a dentist!!
It’s rare that love stories span across decades from childhood into adulthood but these two are living proof that it can happen!! From middle school sweethearts to lifetime lovers, these two have grown up with one another and grown together. Their story is one of fighting for one another, embracing seasons of change, and still continuing to choose one another all these years later. And celebrating with them this past weekend was such a treat for Ty and I.
I feel like every wedding that we shoot always has a highlight for me. And while I don’t always share them, because I care the most about sharing our couple’s story when we share their film, I just couldn’t let this one go by. Chad and Jennifer’s ceremony was probably one of the most impactful and profound ceremonies we’ve ever had the opportunity of capturing. If you’re married, you’ll understand the power in this statement. And if you’re dating or engaged, keep this in your back pocket!! I’ll never forget their Pastor Tommy saying, “if you ever look back and think, man, you’re not the man/woman that I married. You’re right. He/she isn’t the person that you married, because they are growing into the person that they are becoming.” That is so powerful and so easy to forget on the day-to-day grind of life.
Enjoy this sneak peek from their beautiful day!!
