This is truly a love story.
Get this…Sarah and Jason were ADOLESCENT sweethearts! They go all the way back to a middle school in their romance together. As all tumultuous, hormonal, pre-teen relationships go….they broke up. Fast forward 14 years. Fate brought them back together about seven months ago at the ripe old age of 26. It was instant love but this time with the maturity and commitment that adulthood brings.
Jason is a Staff Sergeant in the Air Force stationed in Maryland and Sarah is working here in Lynchburg. Orders were looking like Jason was shipping off to Italy in early summer and they decided this time they weren’t going to let one another slip away, they were in it to win it!
Cue Kellan Studios. We got an email about eight weeks ago asking if we were game for a quick trip up to National Harbor, MD for an extremely intimate wedding. Ten of their closest family and friends were going to gather around Sarah and Jason to watch them commit their lives to one another. Under a tent, overlooking the water, we witnessed Jason and Sarah become one. It was short and it was SWEET. We then meandered around the harbor for a two hour private session before we headed back home. So enjoy an atypical post from us of an awesome Saturday afternoon ceremony and private session of two incredible people!

I feel like theme music should have come on as we walked in slow motion through the crowd, me leading the pack.
Sarah and her father.
Her son, Caine, was there to love on mama as well.
Love this moment with Sarah and her dad praying before he walks her down. So raw and real.

So shy…but I broke him, I broke him like a wild stallion!
On to the private session.
We headed over to the PEEPS store for some fun shots. I’m glad our kids weren’t with us, their heads would have exploded!
We headed over to the Gaylord National Resort. This place is MASSIVE and stunning inside!
A few beauty shots of Ms. Sarah.
So I saw this huge mural and loved all the tones. It wasn’t until I loaded the photos did I notice I had positioned them under some, ahem, well-endowed ladies. Haha….oh well…still love the shots!
Jason and Sarah, how blessed and relaxed your day was. I LOVE the intimacy of the gathering and the incredibly hospitable spirits you had with Ryan and me. The weather was perfect, the view was perfect and your love for one another was perfect. Blessings as you begin your journey as man and wife together.
