After mentally processing this gorgeous day for the last 48 hours and now that it’s time to actually put all of my feelings about it into words, I’m coming up a little short. I could go into a cliche statement about how everything was absolutely perfect but even those words wouldn’t even come close. Emotion flooded the day, from the moment they laid eyes on each other at the first look to the second they ended their walk down the aisle. Jinnae threw her arms around Shane and they both hugged, cried and whispered sweet secrets to each other. Their wedding was a dream that had been brought to life by the love of friends and family.
There are so many things I loved about the day but these are the highlights that were my absolute favorite!
-Listening to worship music Jinnae has playing with everyone was getting ready
-Seeing Jinnae for the first time with hair and make-up (so stunning, she gave me goosebumps!)
-Watching her bridesmaids help button her dress
-Her first look with her dad
-The first look with Shane, she was shaking and so nervous!
-The big balloons
-Their backyard (it was goooorgeous!)
-The twinkle lights
-The candles lit in memory of grandparents no longer with them (I cried the hardest here! And she hadn’t even walked down the aisle yet!)
-When Jinnae walked down the aisle
-The look on Shane’s face when she walked down the aisle
-When asked who gives this woman away, her dad pulled out a list and so tearfully included all her friends and family (oh, seriously, misty eyed again just typing it!)
-The shotgun her dad pulled out
-The beautiful words Pastor Dave shared with Jinnae and Shane
-The song her aunt and uncle sang for them
-The massive cupcake stand layered with the famous Sassy’s cupcakes
-The DJ’s, they were awesome!
-Their choreographed first dance (very fitting given how they met)
-Jinnae’s cowgirl boots
-The sparkler exit
-The excitement on the dance floor
This was not just a wedding, this was a celebration. A celebration of life, of love and of God fulfilling His promises just as He always does.
Congratulations Shane and Jinnae!
Thank you to all these vendors who made the day even more special!
