From “Me” to “Wehe”: Josh and Beth’s Stunning Wedding Day Complete with Paper Flowers, Their Own 5K, and a Fairy Visit!

Josh and Beth will 100% steal your heart. They did mine, let me tell you! From the moment that they booked I was excited to photograph them together, and boy, their day did NOT disappoint! More of their story and how they met is in their engagement blog which you can find here.

Walking into the venue, Lionsgate, on their wedding day brought a total paradox in the emotions there. The best way I can put it is Peaceful Excitement. These two are both very grounded individuals, and possess the ability to be present & excited at the same time. They have a host of people who love them deeply (I can see why), and the wedding day operations were running incredibly smoothly as a result. From hand made Paper flowers to the Makeup artist, this community came together to celebrate these two with both arms open wide.

In fact, with all the help and support…these two even pulled off a day before the wedding “Wehe 5k”!!!! Beth handed me race tickets along with her details and I decided at that moment that there are few things cooler. And then during the reception Josh’s mom and her sisters did a fairy godmother appearance to “Dancing Queen”. This whole day rocked, can you tell?

The best part though…is Josh and Beth. They love God, each other, and life. These were the most important threads of the wedding, and were carefully honored throughout. Josh & Beth, getting to be a part of your day was a highlight of my year…thank you for bringing  me into the beauty of your love story and the start of a new journey together!!! ❤

A huge shout out to my 2nd this day, Rebecca. She’s awesome! And you’ll see some of her images below.

Beth’s best friend, Natalie, got married the month before. (I also got to photograph her amazing day!), and so we had to get a shot of their rings and monograms.

Josh is the oldest of 4 brothers. He warned me that they were a handful. I had no idea what a crack up they would be!

2 of the brothers, they “help” each other. 😉

I found many “progressions” in the images of their day. This is another favorite. Beth here…

Josh’s brother swaggered down the aisle while giving him the funniest face. The best part is that Josh is so used to it all he just deadpanned back.

This moment…was precious. The progression before is of Beth’s dad listening very carefully. And then here looking down at the emotion of what was being honored-Josh & Beth’s Parents.
