Haley & Jakob

Haley & Jakob are married!! Now, I ditched Twitter a while ago for my mental health, but these two are a perfect example of the good that can come from witty banter on the internet. Yes, they met on Twitter and they're perfect and I love them. Their Columbia, MO wedding was intentionally held at the church they attend together, and a local park as a sign of solidarity to the community they've built in the city. (And - I might add that Columbia, MO is a pretty sweet city to visit.) Haley and I are friends from college, along with two of her bridesmaids, which made the bridal party super special. We danced around, made her model pose in a gorgeous bright hallway while all of us squealed, and then took moody portraits of Haley and Jakob in an old school house. One of my favorite moments from the whole day was Jakob laugh-crying when Haley walked down the aisle. All of us were in tears. 

It was a sweet, sweaty, dreamy day, and I'm so thankful to have been there with you guys. Three cheers for true love and friends! 

Caleb & Amy

The intentionality and reverence found in traditional Anglican wedding ceremonies mirrors the way Caleb and Amy interact with the world. Their ability to take seriously the responsibility and jobs they have been given is only made better by the fact that they're truly able to laugh at and with each other. They're goofy and hilarious, compassionate and virtuous. And those elements of their personalities sang throughout the day. The ceremony was not your 15 minute sweet southern ceremony - but an entire service centered around celebrating the faith they hold true, and the hope they carry into their life together. I loved the challenge of both documenting the story of their ceremony, and the encouragement to step back and participate during the certain parts that they wanted to be completely reverent. As you'll be able to tell from the photos after the ceremony, the room was filled with joy, tears, and just a whole lot of really happy friends. It was an honor to step into your lives for a day and tell this wonderful story! Can't wait to share the rest with you all!
