There is a piece of my heart saved for just this family. Immediately upon meeting, they engulfed me with kindness. They care for each other so purely, and so fiercely, that I truly hope to embody a love like theirs one day. Genuine, kind and overflowing with light, I am truly honored to know them!
I strongly believe that we are meant to meet certain people at certain times in our lives for a reason. Whether they stay for a moment, or a thousand memories, they are meant to be there.
Alex + Jarrod define my belief to a tee. Falling in love with different parts of life, to eventually meet & find each other. It’s something that makes you realize why it never worked out with anyone else. Something that all those love stories, old romance novels, & fleeting moments can’t even touch. They were just meant for each other, and after witnessing this wedding, my beliefs couldn’t be stronger.
So, at an exquisite farm venue, under Kentucky’s sky, they tied the knot. Alex had a beautiful dress with so many flowing layers. Jarrod had red Budweiser suspenders, just like Alex’s dad wore on his wedding day. The special moment with Jarrod’s daughter, Paisley, during the ceremony didn’t only have me in tears but also every single guest. They then popped open the wine + whiskey to dance the night away!
It was a beautiful day, but don’t just take my word for it! Enjoy some of my favorites below! // xo Mariss
