These two have been great friends and a part of each other’s lives for a long time, and so when I first met them at their engagement session – it was easy to see almost immediately that they were obviously best friends, and had the BEST time (sooo much laughter!) doing life together. So on their wedding day it was beautiful to see another layer of their relationship unfold in front of us – and that was the deep emotional connection they have and how much they truly truly love and adore one another. There were so many happy tears and so many emotions that took me a bit by surprise because what I had come to know of Clark & J.R. was a very laid back, joyful, goofy and fun couple! So when I saw this other side to them – it brought me to tears too! These two truly have everything they need together and I can only imagine the beautiful, joyful life they will build together!!
Clark & J.R. ~ Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having us come along for this journey with you and for opening up to us so we could capture you two as you truly are together. It was an honor to be a part of it all and we hope these photos do your beautiful day justice! All our love ~ Christy & James XOXO (p.s. Everyone VOTE!! I wanted to make sure to mention that since Clark mentioned it about 20 times on their wedding day!! Vote! Vote! Vote!)
Such a beautiful, joy-filled day!! Congratulations again, you two!!!
And cheers to the amazing vendors who safely pulled off this gorgeous wedding!
