She had dubbed it “The Best Day Ever” long before it had arrived. And when we walked in the door on Saturday, Whitney was SO excited! She smiled the entire day and soaked it all in, but still looked after everyone else as though it was THEIR day and not hers. But that’s just how she is. As the day went on, I realized that those traits came straight from her family. All of them, her mom especially, were so kind and loving and appreciative of us being there.
But Jordan’s family was just the same and it was so clear – as if it hadn’t been already – why these two were such a good fit. Jordan walked through his wedding day as if he were made for it… to stand up and promise to love and cherish Whitney for the rest of their lives. But more importantly, he accepted the promise to put Christ even above her.
Whitney and Jordan, it has been SO much fun getting to know you both these past 8 months and Ben and I are so excited for the two of you and this new adventure that you’re just beginning. I hope you’re enjoying every moment in Costa Rica, but more importantly that you won’t have to say goodbye and go to separate cities at the end of the week! Much love, sabrina
An extra thanks and shout out to Kristy Koliope photographing with me since Ben and his crew were shooting video of the day!
This dress is so beautiful… but mostly because Whitney was the fourth woman in her family to wear it! It began with her grandmother, then her mom and aunt, and now her.
Everything about Whitney’s details were so classic and so very southern!
And those details included monograms, monograms and more monograms!
It was hard to believe that she was buttoning the dress she wore on her wedding day for her own daughter’s wedding. And I wonder if that’s how Whitney’s grandmother felt when Whitney’s mom got married…
Whitney’s family is from Kentucky and one of the traditions they have is to bury a bottle of bourbon, upside down, a month before the wedding to ward off bad weather. Whitney and her parents buried it a month ago and Jordan came to dig it up on August 23 so that everyone could have a drink before the ceremony. Between that and LOTS of prayers, God literally parted the storm around their wedding day site… I wish I had a video of the radar map from my phone to show you. It was amazing!
Jordan! So very dapper in your tux and bow tie!
The girls toasted to good weather and The Best Day Ever!
Oh my heavens, I love these dresses!
I just adored this wedding party… the girls and guys were all so much fun!
And not to mention beautiful!!!
Oh Whitney… You are stunning.
They wanted to write each other notes and pray together before the ceremony… and it was just as sweet as you imagine it was.
Whitney’s grandmother seeing her granddaughter in the dress before the wedding had all of us in tears.
All four beautiful women who have worn the dress!
This is by far a favorite from the day!
I love that she had photos of the dress and her family wearing it!
One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is sneaking off with a couple before sunset… especially with light like this and a backdrop like that!
So thankful for Kristy capturing this one!
I really could have photographed these two for another full day…
What a better send off than with orange and purple pom-poms the week before Clemson’s opening game of the season?!?
Congrats, you two!!
So thankful for everyone that made this the Best Day Ever for Whitney & Jordan!
