A love story a decade in the making, Kaitlyn & Chance finally became husband and wife at their J&D Farms wedding! I don’t think I’ll ever have the words to articulate how thankful I am to have been a part of this day. Every once in a while, we’re lucky enough to meet people who make everything around them more beautiful because of their relationship. The relationship you see and instantly your heart gets all warm and fuzzy and you just know. That is without a doubt, Kaitlyn & Chance.
I first met Kaitlyn when I was a sophomore and she was a freshman at Auburn. I was instantly drawn to her joy and warm smile that lights up her whole face. She is such a light, and I am so grateful for her friendship! Before every wedding, I always send my couples a questionnaire. It includes simple questions about wedding vendors and other details, but also includes some deeper questions. How they met, their proposal story, and what they love most about one another. I include these questions because I believe it’s so important to know how my couples see each other. To capture their love in a way that means the most to them. And let me tell y’all, I was sitting behind my computer with tears rolling down my face as I read Kaitlyn & Chance’s responses.
What started as two 9th graders meeting grew into the most sincere and beautiful love story. From Auburn Jr. High School, Auburn University, and now Nashville to start their careers. What a blessing to be placed in the others lives at such an early point and to be able to grow up together. And after a decade, friends and family came from all over to celebrate these two incredible people!
Their entire wedding day, I was pretty sure that my heart was going to BURST from all of the joy. One of the most beautiful things to witness was how deeply Chance adores Kaitlyn. From the moment they saw one another at their first look, I knew it was going to be a wonderful, heartfelt day. Kaitlyn and Chance privately read their vows to one another and I couldn’t keep the tears back. It’s times like this that I am reminded and HUMBLED by this “job”. To be invited in to such sacred moments and entrusted to capture them. What an honor it was to be a part of these moments.
I could go on for pages and pages about this day. Both of these families are unlike any other and Lex and I are so grateful for the outpouring of love that we received. Kaitlyn & Chance, thank you for being a light of the love of the Father and loving everyone around you. We will forever cherish these memories!
WE ADORE YOU MR. & MRS. OVERSTREET!!
