You guys….I can’t even. We have never been so emotionally involved in a wedding as this one. I knew Sara and Casey were something special from the moment I first met them. We became instant pals and I deeply cherish their friendship. Heading into their day, I felt like I was simply coming to celebrate a marriage with the best of friends. But we had no way of preparing for how beautiful this day would truly be. We cried as we photographed Casey reading his letter from Sara. We cried as we watched Sara transcribing out her vows. We cried with her family as they all came together to share some gifts, hugs, love and prayer before everything of the day took place. We smiled and laughed through portraits. We teared up again as Casey and Sara shared their first moments together. We almost forgot to take pictures during the sweet exchange of their vows, family prayer, devoted communion, and powerful worship, because we were so wrapped up in the gorgeous, glorifying ceremony. As they shared their first dance we couldn’t keep the smile off our faces. And we literally were wiping tears away during the sweet father/daughter and mother/son dance.
You guys…Casey and Sara just make love look easy. It is inspiring. It is beautiful. And above all, it is God-Honoring. These two love each other with an easy, simple, perfect, abundant, unconditional love. Everyone around them just adores them. We weren’t the only ones wrapped up in their day. Listening to the conversations of their bridal party, the families and their invited guests just spoke such volumes to their character. These two love God and love each other. Please enjoy these photos. I have loved every second I have spent with these two, every second I have spent editing their images, and I truly look forward to our continued future friendship.
I love lace. This gown was perfection on Sara.
So many great details sprinkled all throughout the church. Constant reminders of the Jesus this day was meant to glorify.
Casey had to fight back tears reading his sweet letter from his beloved bride.
I kind of want to be best friends with all Sara’s girls. And be a member of their family. Can you guys adopt me?
Y’all the tears. Such sweet family devotion. I hope my family grows up to love each other as fiercely as you guys do.
Sara you are absolutely breath-taking. Your beauty is so much deeper than surface level, (1 Peter 3:4) but for now, we’re happy to show off the outward side!
Stop it. You are stunning.
First looks are always my favorite. ALWAYS.
How are you guys the cutest couple on earth?
Casey. Sweet, sweet Casey. You are such a joy to know. Your character and integrity are something all men should aspire to. Your passion and joy for life is what is always going to keep a smile on Sara’s face. Your love of Jesus is what is going to make you an incredible leader for your family. It was our pure joy to be a part of your wedding day.
Seriously, how adorable are these two?!
How are all of your girls this gorgeous?!
I love that you guys carved time out of your day to pray. I love that your friends and family were happy to do this with you!
Such a sweet moment.
So Casey painted this for Sara. How could we not use it?!
Definitely one of my favorite father/daughter dance shots ever.
You guys, we could not hold back the tears during Casey’s dance with his mom. I mean, COME ON.
Then the party got crazy fun! Such great dancers among you guys!
Casey’s faces while dancing. BEST. EVER.
Sara’s parents were celebrating their 25th year of marriage. I couldn’t think of a better photo to end this on. I love the joy on their faces. I love that they are more madly in love today than they were 25 years ago. Casey and Sara, I can only hope that 25 years from now, you’ll have the same beautiful picture from your kids’ wedding. Enjoy every second my friends. It’s the best journey God could ever take you on!
