Last March while Jaaz was supposed to be at school, Kaitlin was supposed to be on the other side of the world. But God (and Covid) had different plans. And what a plan it was.
Because schools were shutting down, Jaaz found himself finishing out the semester at his home in the North Carolina mountains. And because she couldn't travel like she'd hoped, Kaitlin found herself living at her home (in the North Carolina mountains...right down the road from you know who).
The circumstances of 2020 brought them together, and pretty soon, they knew this was it for them. And here we are - celebrating two lives joining together as one. It was such a sweet and beautiful day. Every detail was planned with intention and stayed true to this couple which made the day even more beautiful. And you know I can't resist a mountain wedding...or boho details. It was truly a dream.
FIRST LOOK WITH DAD + BROTHERS
The First Look
When it was time for Kaitlin's dad to give his daughter away, he grabbed the mic and shared from his heart. Cue the tears.
The ceremony was planned with such intention, and as a result, there were several moments that were extra special. At one point during the ceremony, both sets of parents surrounded the couple and prayed for them.
I always love when all the voices in the room join together to sing. It's moving. I had to join in from behind my camera.
"Behold our God, seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him.
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him."
THE BRIDAL PARTY
Sticking to what she loves, Kaitlin styled her wedding party in beautiful velvet earth tone dresses from Baltic Born. She also gifted each bridesmaid a simple gold necklace which was the perfect accessory to finish the look.
Soooo this was easily the most impressive charcuterie board I've ever seen. It was everything my late afternoon grazing dreams are made of.
Congrats, Kaitlin and Jaaz! You're an amazing couple and team. Truly thankful for your hearts for God and people. I loved getting to be a part of your day. It was beautiful in so many ways.
