Gosh, Kristen & Jacobs’s wedding had me a little teary while photographing their day, editing their beautiful images, and typing their blog.
The day started in the cabins on the Haue Valley property where hair and make-up was done. Kristen was surrounded with so much love from her girls, her mother, and her mother-in-law to be. Kristen gifted her mother and mother-in-law to be a beautiful scripted plate. Kristen got her dress on and everyone got emotional when she came out. She was jaw-dropping and her positivity was more radiant than ever.
The groomsmen & groomswoman got all suited up in navy blue & grey attire. Jacob got his son Wyatt ready and Wyatt looked so sharp in his grey suit! You could tell Wyatt was so excited and happy to for his daddy to marry his best friend.
The ceremony was beautiful. They had an arbor with white flowers. Jacob seeing Kristen for the first time brought tears to his eyes and the biggest smile across his face. Their person handwriting vows to one another had everyone in tears. Their words were real and from the heart.
After the ceremony, we took wedding party photos and went inside to take family portraits since it was very warm. We waited till 7 PM to take bride and groom portraits since the heat was just too much after the ceremony. The wedding party had the best entrances and the dance floor was hopping all night.
All in all, it was truly a perfect day and the threat of rain held off until literally the last minute of the reception! Together, Kristen and Jacob completely compliment one another. They are always smiling and they both love one another deeply, and quietly. They are, indeed, a perfect match, and I am just bursting with joy that I get to document their love.
Kristen and Jacob, no one deserves this amazing day more than the two of you. I am so beyond happy that I got to be there to witness the beginning of your next big adventure. Thank you a million times over for being so incredible. I hope this new adventure together gets better each and every day. Your joy is contagious and I absolutely loved being surrounded by it on your wedding day. Cheers to many more decades of love and happiness!
