Autumn & Jake were married last spring on a beautiful plot of land just west of Jacksonville where Jake grew up. They wanted their wedding to take place somewhere that meant the world to them and bring their friends and family together in one spot that held so many memories. They knew saying their vows under the old oak tree back behind Jake’s childhood home would be the perfect place to start their lives together as husband and wife. The sun was shining and streaming through the branches as they promised to love and cherish each other for the rest of eternity. Jake led his bride under the branches to a seat where he gently bathed her feet and prayed with her. It was a beautiful symbol of their devotion to one another and I’m quite certain there wasn’t a dry eye in the entire crowd. Guests retreated to the barn where they feasted on southern cooking, danced under the stars and basked in the glow of this adorable couple. Sparklers, streamers, balloons and fireworks sent Autumn & Jake on their way to a beautiful island honeymoon and Brad and I went home with some of the tastiest apple butter and southern fixens around. In true southern style, Jake & Autumn’s mothers were insistent that we take some of the leftover food home to enjoy. We have to admit we feasted for days on the goodies they packed for us.
We went home that night having met some of the sweetest folks in all of Jacksonville. We are so blessed to do what we do for a living and working with couples who are so completely in love makes all the hard work we put into our images well worth it. Autumn & Jake, you two are amazing together. Thank you inviting us into your lives and allowing us to tell your love story. Your admiration and love for one another is inspiring.
Enjoy some of our favorites from their wedding day.
