Madi + Will Stephens

Madi + Will have loved each other for 7 years. Since young kids in High School, they each knew there was something special about the other. Dating through the rest of their grade school, and throughout their time in college, these two have finally seen the day where they joined their lives to be one!! Friday, June 22nd, Madi + Will married at Broadway Church of Christ with their family and friends in attendance. The ceremony was beautiful filled with incredible arrangements by Dayspring Design. The Lord's presence was tangible and the couples JOY was contagious and beautiful to witness. It was a beautiful day all around!! The new Stephens' road off to their reception in Madi's grandfather's classic pink Victoria to join their guests at the Fraizer Alumni Pavilion. Everyone in attendance enjoyed hamburger sliders, mac & cheese, french fries, fruit, drinks, and treats & enjoyed the evening celebrating the happy couple!! When it was time for the dancing to end, the guests sent off the new Mr. & Mrs. with a fun light exit and waved goodbye as the Stephens drove off to start their first week of marriage in lovely Jamaica!! I was so honored to be involved in this precious couple's wedding day, and my heart was so full at the end of it. These two are amazing, and to have dated already for 7 years and STILL have that heart eyes, giddy love, was so good for my heart to witness. I believe love is a choice. I believe love doesn't always have those emotions or feelings; HOWEVER, I also believe we can be in control of cultivating how we see and feel about our spouses in a really positive way or negative way.  These two have had a lot of practice and they have cultivated something beautiful in their relationship. They are kind to one another, generous with their words, and honor one another by their actions. What a beautiful thing to witness, and a gentle correction and encouragement for my own marriage. Madi + Will, you guys are kingdom shakers!! Go change the world by continuing to let God's love in you fill the world around you. Congratulations, friends!! Happy Honeymooning!!!

Also, Shout out to my AMAZING second photographer - Emily Koontz. Many of her shots are featured in this blog post throughout the ceremony + reception, and I am grateful for her talent and hard work! There are many weddings where (in my opinion) second photographers are not needed; however, to get everything captured with the way this wedding day was set up, Emily was a tremendous help! :). So, thank you, Emily!! :) -
