Ever wonder what one thing this Wedding Photographer loves to see more than anything on a wedding day?
They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well I say it takes a village to build a marriage. (Of course the ultimate responsibility of a marriage relies on the couple.) I believe a marriage is made better by having a strong support system.
Community is the number one thing I love to see at a wedding. Sure the decorations, and the fancy clothes are pretty, the party is fun, the food is yummy (and I love all of those things!)... The one thing I hope for all of my couples is a long and happy life together. Which is only made better from a community that encourages them to be they best spouse possible.
That is just what happened at Breanna & Justin’s wedding. This sweet couple was surrounded by friends and family on their wedding day who were not just there to party but support them on their way to a lasting marriage. From putting their paths together, to behind the scenes leading up to the wedding their community is strong.
The first part of their village came together with the groom's mom designing these beautiful wedding flowers.
The legacy of their community seen even in the little details of their wedding. Many of the rustic details were brought from the family farm. Pieces that served them for many generations now used to celebrate this beautiful marriage.
The celebration of their new life together was held at the end of summer with a woodland adventure.
The bride made her way down a tunnel of pine trees. She met her groom who’s eyes were filled with tears at the alter. To be honest there was not a dry eye in the woods as Breanna and Justin said: “I do”.
This sweet couple met in high school through their homeschool co-op. Their young love blossomed into a lifetime of love together.
The youth pastor who watched them grow up and fall in love married them under this old oak tree.
Introducing Mr. & Mrs Barret!
This close knit bridal party was made up entirely of the couple’s family.
Is there anything more romantic than a bride and groom exploring the woods together?
We all love when our grandma makes us sweet treats. Well this yummy cake was made by the bride’s grandma.
From tables and chairs, to food, decorations and golf cart taxis their church worked together all week to put together this grand celebration.
They were whisked away to their honeymoon in the groom’s pick up.
Here's to the happy couple! May your days be filled with love and laughter surrounded and supported by your strong community!
