Monticello, AR Wedding: Chris+Tabitha

If there were ever two people meant for each other, it’s these two. No, I’m not saying that to be cliche’. I’m saying it because it’s the truth. They really are meant for each other. I can tell from the outside looking in that they make the other a better person. They both love Jesus and they love the other’s children as their own. It’s a rare quality you find in a couple. I can tell they put each other first.
Their wedding was so laid back with no stress! That, also, is a rare quality on a wedding day. Tabitha even talked about how she just felt so relaxed. I’d work with them again in a heartbeat!

Can we just talk about the tears in Tabitha’s dad’s eye here??

When a wedding ceremony has a worship song, and the bride and groom ask the congregation to join them in worship…I have no words. It was probably my favorite part of the whole day.

Chris and Tabitha, keep Jesus as the center of your marriage. Love each other unconditionally and be each other’s best friend.

Til next time

Warren, AR Wedding: Steed+Kenna

Another warning!!! Long Post!!!
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, I can continue. I don’t even know where to begin with this post. I’ve known Kenna since the day she was born. Literally. I was a part of her family’s life before she was born. I think I may have spent just as much if not more time with her family as I did my own. She has two older sisters and I fall right in the middle of them age wise. So it wasn’t uncommon to see me at their house on any given day.

When I found out she was engaged, I was very excited for her and Steed. And then when they messaged and asked me to shoot the wedding, I teared up. There was no way I wasn’t doing this wedding. But this post isn’t only about Kenna.

Steed is a great guy! He loves Kenna so much that you can see it on his face when he looks at her. And she looks at him in the same exact way. He loves her children like his own and treats all of them like they were always family. It’s a fantastic love story!

Little girls always love days like this. The get to feel grown up and wear make up and get their hair fixed.

And they’re always watching! I love these two images. Kylee watched mom touch up her mascara and then decided to try it for herself.

As we all know, there is a lot of emotion from a lot of people. Capturing that is always nice!

Nothing like a dad seeing his daughter for the first time.

I had such a good time shooting this wedding. It didn’t feel like work because it was family. I love my job, but getting to work with family, for me, always makes it better. Kenna and Steed, I can’t say thank you enough for letting me capture the beginning of your life journey together. Love you guys!

Til next time,

Do Well and Do Good
