Jackson and Courtney’s wedding day was everything they could have ever imagined and more. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, they promised to choose and love each other each and every day, to support one another always, and to do it all with God by their side. Their love story is such a beautiful testament to the redemption and freedom that Jesus brings…and I still can’t believe I got to be the lucky one to photograph their day!
It’s not often that I meet a couple for the very first time on their wedding day, but since Courtney and Jackson live far away, we had done all of our communication over the phone or email leading up to Saturday. Needless to say, I was so excited to meet them in person and celebrate! Courtney’s family has a way of immediately making you feel like one of their own. Her mom actually has a term for friends who are more like family: framily! Almost every person involved in their day fit under that label. They pulled together a gorgeous wedding venue in their own backyard in a matter of months, and it was perfect in every single way!
To keep this from getting too long, I thought I’d share some moments I’ll always remember bullet-point style below:
Overall, their wedding was a beautiful celebration of family and marriage and love. I am so excited to share Courtney and Jackson’s day with you today! Enjoy some of my favorites!
Love these ones of Courtney seeing her bouquet!!!
The sweetest first look! I love all the joy these images hold…and, if you zoom in close enough, you can see some happy tears, too!
Love, love, love!!!
As I mentioned above, their entire wedding party was family. Love all of these fun images with flower girls, junior bridesmaids, in-laws, and more!
Courtney and her grandpa….such a beautiful moment.
And then it was time for the ceremony to begin! Love the image on the right Lauren caught of both grandpas shaking hands!
A favorite, for sure! :) I love the relationship these two have!!
As I mentioned above, Courtney’s entire family put in so much work to make their home the perfect wedding venue for their day. Isn’t it simply stunning?!
My favorite part of the day was how it was just one big celebration! Love all these candid family moments so much!
Congratulations, Courtney and Jackson!!!
