Sarah Jane & Josh | Married

IMG-144Sarah Jane and Josh were married March 7, 2015 at Reid Chapel on the campus of Samford University in Birmingham. These two are such genuine people with beautiful souls and very, very, very much in love with each other. Everything about their day was a celebration of God bringing the two of them together.  You could just tell that every single guest truly enjoyed celebrating these two.  And, I myself, enjoyed celebrating these two….I have a sweet relationship with the bride that I cherish so much, so to be with her on one of the most special days of her life was a gift!

God has placed so many beautiful, loving college girls in my life to disciple during their time in Troy, and Sarah Jane is one of those!  I am forever encouraged by these girls and they all have a very special place in my heart!   Sarah Jane has the sweetest smile and joyful personality that is guaranteed to brighten anyone’s day.  Really and truly, she is one of my most favorite people to be around because she just brings happiness wherever she goes. She has a servant’s heart and is burdened for the lost, which is just amazing to see someone of this age living life so selflessly.  During her time at Troy, she was constantly developing friendships with international students, shining her light for Jesus into their lives. She is one who has trusted God and His plan for her life, through the good times and bad, and that is a strong testament to her faith and the woman she has become!  Due to her trusting God’s plan… Josh comes into her life while at Beach Project the summer after college!  He is the perfect guy for SJ and shares the same love for Jesus, family and friends as she does!  I had already witnessed the sweet love he had for Sarah Jane and then on their wedding day, I was in awe of the love he had for his mom, ahhhh it was so sweet……hoping my boys have the same kind of love for me as they grow older.  Josh is on staff with Campus Outreach at Berry College in Rome, Ga and will be such a blessing to everyone he ministers to there and SJ will be the perfect compliment to that ministry!

Now the biggest opposite of these two is the families they come from, it’s crazy!  Josh is an ONLY child. Sarah Jane on the other hand, has ELEVEN siblings (see family photos below for proof!)

I will be forever grateful for the love these two have shared with my family!  Congrats, Sarah Jane and Josh, you guys have such a beautiful life ahead.

Anna Leigh and Clint were married 2.21.15 at First Presbyterian Church in Troy, Al.  Their day was absolutely perfect!  We began the day at The Chapman House where the bride and bridesmaids got the day started…this new addition to The Emporium is stunning, you must check it out for yourself!  After the ceremony, the reception was held at The Emporium where friends and family danced the night away and celebrated the marriage of Anna Leigh and Clint!

Anna Leigh was an absolutely stunning bride. And my buddy, Clint, looked very handsome himself! (Clint and I graduated high school together and share many fun memories!)  I’m so happy we were able to be a part of this gorgeous wedding and to witness the celebration of God bringing their family together as one. Enjoy some of my favorites from their wedding!  To see more in a sweet little video, click here.
