KARISSA + GRANT | SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH | MISSOURI WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Karissa and Grant's Love Story
Karissa and Grant met in a small group, and one email later from Karissa about potentially dating led to a cup of coffee and a walk in June for their first date! Pre-engagement counseling only made the two fall in love even deeper, and Grant was reassured that she was the one for him. After asking Karissa's dad for his permission to marry her, he custom designed a ring that he would later propose with on December 21st at Pythia Castle with posters and a violin player. He got on one knee with a super extra light up ring box, and all she could focus on was him.
Karissa and Grant got married at Second Baptist Church, which is right where I grew up with her! (Fun fact: I'm photographing her brother's wedding this year as well! How cool?!) This couple truly loves the Lord and their desire for their friends and family to experience Him on their wedding day was evident from beginning to end. They are most excited about following the Lord together, and have a stronger bond to Him together than apart. They wanted to fully center their wedding around worshipping the Lord as opposed to the day being about themselves.
