I have been soo excited to photograph this wedding day.  From first meeting Hannah back in February, to sitting down with the two of them a few weeks later, to their fun engagement session, to just chatting with Hannah as the wedding day approached I knew this day was going to be a special one.  The week of the wedding I started getting nervous because the chance of rain was a HUGE possibility and this was an outside wedding and ohh gosh I was just praying that they would get the wedding they had been dreaming about and planning for!!  That entire Saturday I kept a close eye on the weather & even when I arrived at Lenora’s Legacy I kept my phone handy and my eyes on the sky & an umbrella close because I still wasn’t sure what was going to happen weather wise… but my doubts in the weather completely went away when Joe met me outside the farmhouse with a huge smile because he was so dang excited to marry his bride in just a few short hours… as much as I already knew it, his smile & the way he was talking about Hannah and that day reminded me once again that no matter what happened weather wise… the ONLY thing that mattered at the end of the day was that they would be married!!!

Hannah & Joe did an amazing job in all their little details.  Besides the yummy food, everything that happened on this day was done with love & done by the hands of family & friends… this wedding had love weaved throughout it all & it was such a precious day.  The love that overflowed from everyone was contagious… the love they have for one another, but most importantly their love for God.  This union in marriage is a sweet sweet sweet one and I was completely honored & blessed to be able to photograph it.

Joe wrote notes on anything he could find… even receipts!!!

I don’t even know where to begin with this sweet ceremony.  From how sweet Joe was at seeing his beautiful bride to the first time, to the outpouring of love that was shown, to the actual ceremony itself (y’all it was beautiful and it had me at times wishing I did video to remember every bit of it), to their first ever kiss… to being pronounced husband & wife and them being sooooo incredibly happy!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0031Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0032When I first sat down with these two I asked… are y’all getting married under the tree or somewhere else on the property… and boy was I excited when they said under the tree!! It was beautiful!!!!
