JO + BRYCE | ST. CATHERINE'S AT BELL GABLE | ARKANSAS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I honestly can't properly put words together to say how incredible Jo and Bryce are. The way the love each other and center their lives around the Lord completely inspires me and warms my heart.
I met Jo at a really special time in my life. We were in a small group together for a church I had been going to my entire life. I had felt like the Lord was getting ready to move me and shortly after she had mentioned that she started going to this really cute little church down on Commercial Street. I went and visited with her and completely fell in love with the church and the people and her friendship. I wouldn't be in the church, surrounded by the people, or in the office space I am today without Jo. I've gotten to see her and Bryce's relationship grow over the last couple years and when she told me they were getting married, I couldn't be more excited!
Jo has the most beautiful heart. She invited me to spend the day with her and her bridesmaids the day before. While we were at her bridal lunch she went around the table and told everyone individually what she loved about them, including me. She spent two of the biggest days of her life surrounding her friends and family in love and it was the most beautiful thing I've ever been a part of. The morning of their wedding day, I went outside to take pictures of Jo writing her vows. She talked with me during that time about how excited she was to marry Bryce. How no matter what her past looked like or how scared or emotional she was, he would continually love and comfort her. How he represented everything the Lord was for her. And in that time I had the most beautiful representation of God's love and what I desire in a husband some day.
Throughout Jo and Bryce's wedding day, the rain, things not going right, and time crunches, I only saw joy. Every time I asked Bryce to look at Jo or to tell her why he loves her, all I saw was pure love and joy. The reason I love knowing my couples is because if I didn't, it would just be another wedding day for me. Jo and Bryce are so unique and so special and I feel so completely honored and emotional knowing that they had me be a part of the start of their lives together. I hope when you look at these images, you see the beautiful people that Jo and Bryce are.
