It’s our Jenna and her new (and equally as amazing) husband in their very own Boxwood Estate wedding! Need I even say more? I mean, really…their day is wedding perfection. They put so much thought and heart into it, and it all came together so beautifully. So beautifully in fact that it’s printed in the most recent edition of The Carolinas Magazine!

Saying that this day was special to us doesn’t do justice to how much it truly meant to be their photographers. She’s family now. They’re family now. They’re part of our lives. She gives so much to us and serves us so well, and we are so thankful we could show her one tiny piece of kindness in return for all she does for us. Everything she does, she does with all her heart, and she deserves nothing less from anyone, especially me. In all my years, I’ve never been as proud of a wedding as I have this one. It was my first mostly film photography wedding day, and will forever be one of my favorites, and not just because of all the prettiness.

Mainly, because of these two and their families. I have never met two people more meant to be than Jenna and Patrick. Their upbringings, relationships with God, and families intertwine so beautifully. Their families raised two beautiful souls, who found each other in high school, fell in love and put God in the center of their relationship from the very first day. He had a hand in their story and will continue to have a hand in how their marriage unfolds. I can’t wait to stand beside them and watch them grow stronger together.

Jenna and Patrick, thank you for being you. For being vulnerable in front of the camera, letting me tell your Boxwood Estate wedding story through pictures, and giving me the biggest honor of my career in documenting your day. I (we) love you two so much and are so grateful you’re in our life. Thank you for setting the standard on what marriage and dating should look like. For setting an example of a Godly relationship for my girls, that I will always point towards. And for pushing me to be better in my marriage, simply by watching yours. We are so happy you two found each other and hope every day is better than the one before!

If you didn’t see their Boone Engagement Photos, I highly recommend checking those out too!! They’re so ethereal and perfect in every way!

Oh, and all the photos, literally every single one, posted here was taken on filme!!
