Oh y'all, this day was just the best!! I've been looking forward to capturing this day for months & was SO honored to be a part of it! Kelly & Luke are the kind of couple a photographer dream of working with - not just because their joy is contagious & they are beyond adorable together, but because they are the sweetest kind of people you'll ever meet & their heart for each other & for everyone they meet is such an inspiration. You may remember their Memphis engagement session last fall which was so much fun, & I just knew their wedding day would be such a joy to capture.
Kelly is literally one of the sweetest & most joyful brides I've ever gotten to work with! I can truly say that through this process of working with she & Luke, I have gained a friend in Kelly! She is the same person to everyone she meets, whether she's known you for 10 years or 10 minutes. I couldn't imagine a more perfect husband for Kelly than Luke. He absolutely adores her which was obvious within seconds of meeting them last fall, & together they are just so full of joy in the Lord. It is such a blessing to everyone they know, & I can truly say that getting to capture this season for them has blessed my life in more ways than they'll ever know!
Saturday was SUCH a gorgeous day for their wedding in Jackson, Tennessee!! We started the day at their reception venue & got to take all of their portraits downtown which was so much fun! Kelly did a first look with her dad & brother, her bridesmaids, & then Luke, & all three moments were the best to capture! When Luke saw Kelly for the first time in her wedding dress, the look on his face was one of complete joy & love. It was the best moment!! They then read letters that they had written to each other, & I'm pretty sure we were all crying at that point!! Their ceremony at Kelly's home church was so sweet & such a testimony of God's faithfulness in bringing them together! SO many people came to celebrate their day with them!! It's so easy to see why Kelly & Luke are so loved by so many!!
Kelly & Luke - I may be tearing up as I type this because I am just so grateful that you chose me to capture this season for you. It has been nothing but the greatest honor & privilege, & I hope y'all are able to relive your beautiful day for years & years to come. I know the Lord is going to use you both to change the lives of SO many people, & your marriage is such a light for Him. Love you both so much!!
