Over the past four years, Esther and I have shared many moments together over photography, college, and our respective significant others. So not only was I excited to be a witness to her and Ben’s marriage last month, but I was also absolutely ecstatic to photograph it for them!

Ben and Esther together just makes sense. Their personalities complement each other and I’ve always been astounded by the dedication and service they give to one another. It was also fun to have a buddy following a similar timeline with dating and marriage – we both began dating sophomore year, celebrated engagements last summer, and both got married this summer!

Their wedding was simply perfection. The venue was stunning, the weather was cooperative, and the guests were amazing. Congratulations to both of you, Ben and Esther! I’m so very excited to see where God will lead the both of you as husband and wife!

Enjoy the pictures!

When Ben got to the front, he kept his eyes down, waiting for his bride to appear.

Then he saw her. I’ve never seen him smile so big 🙂

They performed a foot-washing ceremony. It was a wonderful display of love and tenderness.

After their send off, we snuck away to a beautiful field and pond to take bridal party photos! It was so nice to have as much time as we wanted to explore and take photos with no pressure to get back to the reception. Their bridal party was A+, filled with energetic and enthusiastic personalities!
