I am beyond proud and excited to introduce Mr. & Mrs. Jackson! On January 15th, I had the pleasure of capturing Claudia & Isaiah's beautiful wedding at the Cathedral of St. Mary in Fargo, North Dakota.
The backdrop for this couple was just as stunning as they were - the church, which Claudia has attended her entire life, was absolutely gorgeous and truly spoke to the things these two stand for as a couple.
Although it was a bitterly cold day, we managed to sneak outside in the fresh snow and capture some photos. I don't think these two had more than a few seconds without smiles on their faces throughout the entire day. We always tell our clients that genuine smiles make for the best photos, and with these lovebirds, there was no shortage! Even the emotion during their first look left their friends and family with happy tears in their eyes.
It is clear that faith is extremely important to Isaiah and Claudia. To hear the Bishop talk about watching through the rectory window as a young Claudia trudged through Fargo snowstorms to attend mass each week, and then to be able to watch her stand on that same alter in her wedding dress as a beautiful young woman, was truly heartwarming and something that we rarely see! Feeling the true love and celebration between these two, in the faith that supported Claudia her whole life, was so incredibly special and genuine, and that feeling echoed throughout the entire day.
It was also so fun to watch the Jacksons' true personalities show through! Isaiah is SUCH a goofball and one of the cool things to watch throughout the day was how his funny, sometimes ridiculous nature so perfectly balances his new wife. Even in his silliest moments, it is clear in everything he says and does that he geniunely adores Claudia. It is truly a blessing when I am able to work with such fun, genuine, and down-to-earth people!
Mr. & Mrs. Jackson came to us through an online wedding website, and up until their big day, we were communicating strictly via email and phone as we worked through their timeline and final details. Sometimes this can make my job harder, but with these two, I honestly just felt so lucky. From our first conversation, they were so sweet and helpful, and by the time I was heading to Fargo, I was so excited for their big day. Their families and friends didn't disappoint, either!
Mr. & Mrs. Jackson, I am so thankful that we connected, and that you chose and trusted me to capture such a special day for the two of you. As I look through the rest of the photos, there is no question in mind that God truly chose the two of you for each other, and that you are a perfect match. I can't wait to watch where life takes you from here, and I am so luck to have had you both as clients! Cheers to many years of love, happiness, and celebrations as you move forward as husband and wife!
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Jackson! 1-15-19 Fargo, ND
