Kristen & Jerrod | Romantic Farm Wedding

So before I even start talking about this sweet couple, I have to tell how I know this Bride. My Dad and Kristen's Dad have been friends their whole lives therefor I have known Kristen her whole life and remember helping change her diapers when she was born. So when she asked me a year ago if I would photograph her wedding I immediately agreed and felt 10 grey hairs pop up on my head.

These two kiddos have been dating since their Freshman year of High School....Let that sink in. Kristen even had a framed note that she wrote to Jerrod (before texting!) in Elementary school that basically summed up George Strait's song, "Check Yes or No." It was adorable! They have a sweet and pure love that is very rare now a days and I am so glad I was able to be there to capture it.

They were married at Mountain View Farms of Ashville. There was a threat of severe storms that were predicted to come through just as their ceremony was about to start--they called all 250 guests to tell them they were moving the wedding up to 12:00 so they could still have a beautiful outdoor ceremony. I arrived bright and early and was greeted with warm welcomes from her precious Bridesmaids and family. They chose to do a first look which of course made us all cry and Jerrod's reaction was what all Brides dream of from their Groom. The rain held off and we were able to enjoy a beautiful afternoon of celebration for these two. My husband, Dad and Step Mom were also present which made this wedding even more special for me :)

Kristen and Jerrod, you have such a special relationship and I am blessed to have been a small part of your day. Not only was I your photographer, I was another guest that loves you and was there to delight in your union. Thank you again and Happy Honeymooning!!!
