I did a venue walk-through with Caroline on the Monday before her Saturday wedding and it was drizzling as we walked around the property. We both spoke about the weather and our hopes for a cloudy and cool day for their wedding and that’s exactly what the Lord blessed us with!! He’s so so good!!

Saturday morning was filled with many gorgeous details and a room packed full of ladies.. 12 to be exact. We listened as they talked and laughed with each other all morning. I knew that Zach + Caroline’s wedding was going to be such a fun and special day – but their wedding exceed all my expectations!

From their incredible friendships (some lasting through high school and college!), to their prayer with each other before the ceremony, their ceremony vows, their choice to share communion with each other and the incredible heart-felt speeches during the reception – it was all so encouraging. It was very obvious that Zach + Caroline have an amazing support team of friends and family that came to share in their celebration and it was so humbling to be a part of it. Zach + Caroline have such welcoming, down-to-earth personalities with a pinch of entertainment. You’ll see for yourself! ;)

Zach + Caroline – Your days of long distance are OVER FOR GOOD and I really just couldn’t be more excited for you two!! So excited to have reconnected since High school, Caroline, and the incredible honor to document and truly life giving wedding day! Thank you for being such an inspiring couple and a Godly example to follow!! LOVE YOU GUYS! Enjoy so many of my favorites from your day! – XO!
