It could be seen in every smile, found at every corner. It didn’t matter if I was standing next to them or watching it unfold from across the room. It was joy. And it was everywhere.
I felt it within the tight spaces of the cabin where life-long friends dressed and laughed and fixed each other’s hair. Joy took over when Jessica’s mother helped her with her necklace and saw her step into her wedding dress. Kody wore it on his face (and his sleeve) from the first time he laid eyes on his bride until the last picture was taken.
Even in the most difficult of moments, when Jessica couldn’t possibly miss her Dad more, joy was there and made it’s way forward—laced between the words of a letter he’d written to her for this day. In that moment when Jessica needed him most, Kody offered his hand and showed her what life with him will be like. Steady. Cherished. And you guessed it—joyful.
Kody and Jessica, thank you so much for having me as your photographer. Your wedding was beautiful and I know your marriage will be as well. Enjoy a few of my favorites.
Ohmygoodness is right. So beautiful.
