Where do I even begin. Since the very beginning, Jessica and Daniel have been nothing but generous and genuine to me. These two truly live their lives for those around them, they serve their people well. Their day really reflected this, and you could just feel how everyone who came to watch them say their vows had been loved well in some way by these two. What an honor it was to document this day. They said their vows under a large beautiful tree in a field in North Carolina. They were surrounded by their closest family and friends. They took a moment alone together right before their first kiss, to walk into the field and pray together. It was their intentional first act as husband and wife, and there was not a dry eye in the crowd. Once they were announced as husband and wife, they literally skipped down the isle, with the biggest smiles on their faces. I don't think I've ever started running backwards so fast! Every moment of their day was filled to the brim with deep, teary eyed love, belly laughter, and prayer. My associate photographer and I truly felt like we were a part of the family, and I have never cried so many times during a wedding day. This is definitely a long blog post, but I promise it's worth it! I wanted to share the story of the whole day, and each moment was so special. Jessica and Daniel's love is absolutely beautiful, and it was an honor to be a part of the day they became husband and wife. Enjoy!
