Genesis & Charlie

Oh my goodness, was this wedding a day for the record books! From the moment I walked into Genesis’ hotel suite on the morning of her wedding day, I felt a sense of calm, excitement and readiness. These two have been looking forward to this day their entire lives. So much so that they were already legally married!

We all left for the courthouse after getting ready. Charlie and Genesis decided to share a first look and read each other personal letters they’d written. I’m so glad they did! Y’all, it was tears from the minute Charlie turned around! His smile reached his ears as he looked at his bride for the first time. Genesis was so beautiful, I didn’t blame him one bit!

My favorite part of their wedding day was their ceremony. The only person Genesis and Charlie love more than each other is God. Their ceremony was such an intentional dedication of their lives and their marriage to God, and it was such an honor to witness each moment. Their family and friends gathered around them promised to encourage the newlyweds in their marriage, to always seek God, and to grow their family with intention and in faith. It was such a beautiful message!

Thank you

Genesis and Charlie, you two have made my life more rich just by being in it. Thank you for asking me to capture this day for you! The honor was all mine!
