Liz & Jared always bring a smile to our faces. From the moment we met them at their summer engagement photo session we knew we’d found friends, and the kind of friends that feel like we’ve known each other for so much longer then we actually have. Liz & Jared have this way of encouraging and welcoming people in with so much grace and kindness, making hearts feel renewed and inspired. We can hardly count on two hands the the amount of happy tears we shed on this beautiful wedding day!
Their day started with hair, make-up, and the sweet smell of coffee, a room full of lovely bridesmaids, adorable flower girls, and beautiful Liz. The getting ready room was bustling but there was not a hint of rush or worry, only the beautiful anticipation of a GREAT day ahead. Across town Hugo found Jared spending his morning praying, laughing, and getting ready to see his beautiful bride at the end of the aisle. Liz & Jared shared a quiet moment before their ceremony to pray together. Afterwards they exchanged gifts, in which Jared gave Liz a beautiful children’s book he wrote about their love story. He had the book bond and illustrated (needless to say it was AMAZING!) Soon the candles were lite, the mother’s seated, and as Liz’s father walked her down the aisle and her and Jared saw each other for the first time there was a tangible joy that filled the church, and a multitude of happy tears were shed.
There was no shortage of joy on this day as you can imagine. Jared & Liz, everything about your day was so meaningful, and we loved watching you join your lives together in marriage, and dance in celebration with friends and family. It means so much to us to have been part of your wedding day.We are so inspired by your faith. Your lives are such an amazing testimony of the beautiful work of Jesus. You continue to encourage us (and so many others) to love each other and the LORD with our all. We hope these images serve as a reminder for you both and your future generations of this sweet season in your journey together.
