I can't hold myself back from sharing the love and joy that Katie and Jordan have for each other - and that everyone who knows them has for them, as well. On a day that was destined for storms, even the sun came out to congratulate them. There was so much more happening below the surfaces of all the smiles last Saturday, but I pray that my camera was able to capture even a fraction of such a meaningful celebration.
Katie and Jordan have been together since our junior year of high school - 8 entire years ago. Together, they have achieved so much. They have earned high school, college, and grad school diplomas - together. They moved from Texas to Mississippi and back again - together. They both landed great jobs in their hometown - together. And - FINALLY! - they have taken vows of forever - together.
Katie and Jordan,
I can't begin to describe how happy I am that you two are married, and that I had the chance to be there to see it happen. I've never had the opportunity to document a wedding so many years in the making, and I am so honored. There are SO many more photos to come, but I hope the ones in this post prove how much love and joy filled your day less than one week ago. You are blessed with an incredible story and with such supportive friends and family that love you so deeply, and I hope your wedding photos will forever remind you of just that.
