Jimi + Bubba

This lovely little backyard wedding was full of love, full of hope, full of a bright future. A small gathering came together on a sunny Saturday afternoon to celebrate the love these two have for each other.

Jimi’s grandmother officiated the wedding and her daughter was the flower girl. Her great-grandfather played a song on the guitar that he wrote for his wife. Bubba’s nephew was the ring bearer. And people from all over the country came to witness this union. It was so lovely.

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”


Every wedding I have photographed is the same. Everyone seems a little hectic before the main event. Trying to finish up last minute details. Trying to make everything as perfect as possible. And then when the ceremony starts, there’s this calm. Finally, the moment these people have been waiting for has arrived and all those little details that felt like they needed to get done aren’t important anymore.

It’s a beautiful thing to witness. They declare their love for one another. You can feel their joy as it spills through everyone. Those little details that seemed so important at the beginning aren’t even a thought anymore. Only joy. Only hope. Only a new future joined together.
