KARLY + PARKER

SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 2017 // THE OLD JEFFERSON COTTON MILL

These images light up my heart. I am moved by them and I feel so incredibly honored to have captured Karly + Parker's love for one another. Yesterday was right out of a dream and it couldn't have been a more perfect day. One of my most favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is that I'm able to share beautiful love stories and capture moments that will last forever. Moments that they'll be able to look back on when they're old and gray and more in love than ever. I found myself almost in tears yesterday because my heart was so happy doing what I love- it is a blessing from God to work with such kind hearted clients and friends.

Parker and Karly's wedding was filled with so much love and it was so apparent that God had carefully and purposefully molded their hearts for one another. Parker's father told me the sweetest story about their first date. Parker had come home from dinner with Karly and he sat down next to his dad, looking very serious and he said, "Dad, I'm in trouble." His father asked what he meant. He said "I've met the most incredible girl." Soon after, Parker brought Karly home to meet his family and his dad said that he knew right away exactly what Parker had meant. They both knew immediately that she was the woman that he would spend his life with. 

I LOVE the sweet prayer they shared before the ceremony with their pastor. It was so genuine and intimate. It gave them a chance to be together and calm their nerves before walking down the aisle. These images show how at home they are together. Parker's Best Man, Lee, spoke about 1 Timonthy 4:12 that states: " Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity." He spoke about how important it is to set an example for others of what marriage is meant to be, devoted to one another the way Christ is devoted to us. Karly and Parker exemplify all of these things and it was truly the greatest honor to capture these timeless moments!
