There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Lords hand was in favor of Josh and Ellie’s wedding day in more ways than one. How is it possible to have a forecast the night before of 5 inches of rain and flash flooding turn into a zero inch rain day and have a fall-like temperature day!? If I didn’t know better I would’ve thought it was a Saturday in October! It was amazing!!! I’m so thankful for that!

Arriving at 5:30 a.m., the whole church was quiet and only a few people walked the halls prior to the hustle and bustle of the morning. As Ellie slipped into her beautiful lace dress the sun began to peeking through the windows, giving us the prettiest natural light to work with. As time quickly passed, it was time to see Josh for the first time of the day. They shared a quick moment together and to my surprise, I turned around and saw about 15 other people outside with us that didn’t make a sound the whole time! It was incredible!! Haha! One of my favorite parts of the day was the fact Josh couldn’t keep his eyes off Ellie and kept making the sweetest remarks about how beautiful she looked. I could’ve photographed them all day!! Once the ceremony was over, we all traveled 40 minutes to the reception where they were greeted for the first time as Mr & Mrs! I loved that Josh and Ellie spent part of their reception walking around table to table greeting their guests individually with soft music playing in the background and ended their incredible day with a bubble exit (and more bride and groom portraits.. WIN!).

Josh + Ellie, I’m so thankful and honored to have served you on the greatest day of your lives! I can’t wait to see where the lord leads you both, now and in the future! If you’re reading this.. I hope you’re enjoying Aruba and that you know juuust how jealous I am that you’re there! XO! – K
