Mr. & Mrs. Varnado

Last January, I met Kayla and Peyton at a bridal show. I was 9-months pregnant but determined to be there that day and I'm SO thankful I was! That day, I met this wonderful couple. I remember thinking when Kayla came to my table in her neon pink sweater that these two were such a cute couple! Fast forward about 2 weeks later, and we were booking their wedding for a year and 3 months later! It would be here before they knew it!

Getting Ready

Everyone enjoyed getting ready together. The spirit between everyone was just so sweet! Mom was emotional at times understandably so but so thoroughly excited for her little girl while Peyton's mom showed she was excited and so thankful to be there and enjoy the day from her perspective as a mom of three boys.

During the ceremony, tears flowed. I believe a few may have escaped my eyes as well. It couldn't be helped but they were the best kinds of tears - happy and thankful tears. You could tell from Peyton's reaction to Kayla that he was so thankful that she chose him and vice versa. They were a beautiful picture of God's chosen love between a man and woman.

Couple portraits were amazing! Peyton and Kayla were prepared to make some magic happen and it definitely did! I mean, this photo? Ahh, perfection!


The reception was so special! Mom and Dad were present on both sides so they all danced together while Peyton and Kayla danced. It was a wonderful show of true, unconditional, agape love. It was something that I felt showed how God intended marriage to be... a safe, loving union. It literally still makes me smile thinking about their sweet day!
