And the day was filled with an abundance of yellow which is so fun and rare for most weddings now days! Maybe that'll change :D.

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0089


And hay bales really are a brilliant seating idea :D.

I arrived at 8:00 that morning and the girls were dressed, smiling, and ready to start! It was great! Hooray for portraits in the morning light :D.

Jenny is such a sunshiney, down-to-earth person, and it reflected in every detail of the wedding: I loved it :).

When I had them walk down this road, they all just started singing and it was so precious! And they sounded so good together! They'd obviously sang together before ;D.

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0222


Ok :D. Caleb had pre-recorded an audio of him talking about the ring bearer's "mission" and how there was a plot to stop the ceremony, etc... and then they proceeded to fulfill their mission to the theme song of "Mission Impossible." It was great. Haha :D.

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0640


Then it was time for just Caleb and Jenny :).

I'm going to go ahead and share their love story with you in Jenny's words :).

"We met at college through my best friend. At first, he thought I was annoying and I thought him an apathetic Yankee. [Haha!] But after a year, we both changed. I realized he wasn't too bad (which was slightly annoying since my best friend had predicted we would get together). We texted over Christmas break getting to know each other. At college in the spring, we set aside Wednesdays after church to spend time together. He asked me to go with him to Fine Arts and-just to be a pill- I said "No" :). Then I quickly changed my answer before he changed his mind. After I graduated, he spent a week with my family in Texas where he asked my dad permission to date me. Thus began our long distance relationship based on letters, crafts, Skype, and phone conversations. That summer I worked at a Christian camp in PA, after which Caleb picked me up for a visit with his family in New York. On our way up there, we stopped by a state park where a stone path followed a river through the gorge-it was beautiful! We found a still, quiet spot and skipped stones. That fall, I taught at Bethel while he attended college. I lost my dad in October, and Caleb drove 9 hours to be with my family. I was touched by his compassion. He spent Christmas break with my family and brought joy and companionship during that dark holiday. I was preparing to spend Valentine's Day without my Valentine when February rolled around, but an accident that took my fingertips brought my man to my rescue. He told me that something as small as losing a finger couldn't change his love for me-then I knew we could get through anything together with God's strength. That summer we worked at the PA camp together. Caleb told his campers about his girlfriend who chopped off her fingers with a table saw and taught them about joy in Christ. After camp, we returned to the state park to skip stones-there Caleb asked me to marry him, and I readily agreed (with a scream)."

:D

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0641


They make me smile so much :D.

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0645


SO much :D.

Caleb and Jenny's wedding23


caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0659


I love to see how couples make each other smile and feel at ease like no one else can :).

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0668

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0671


And make each other laugh like no one else can. Hehe :D.

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0672


This daylight suited them so well :) :).

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0674


Yaaaaay :D :D

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0677


Aaaaah!! I love them so much!! Haha

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0685

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0690

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0693


I told them they could just talk and do whatever and Caleb started telling her a story.

Caleb (half way through his first sentence): "Have I ever told you this before?"
Jenny: "No."
Me (kinda to myself, don't they they heard me. Haha): "...You're telling her a story she's never heard before! And I'm right here!"

I felt so special and kinda undeserving! Haha. I know it's a little thing, but to be a witness of these little things is a priceless part of my job :D :D.

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0699

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0703

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0711

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0714


Jenny shared with me what Caleb is like and what she loves about him :).

"I love that Caleb is a Goldy man who seeks to please the Lord in every aspect of his life. He is consistent and loyal. He listens when people need to talk and genuinely cares for them. When it comes to building something or fixing things, it must be done right. so he is a bit of a perfectionist in some ways. He loves to make people laugh and finds much self-worth in encouraging others. He is loving, sweet, and thoughtful. He thinks things through and enjoys being active."

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0730

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0733

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0736


Hooray for beautiful back roads and kisses in dappled light :).

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0748

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0755


Caleb shared the same things with me about Jenny :).

He prefaced with "(Words can't express)" :).

"Jenny is beautiful. I love that she loves other people so much. She is rarely seen doing anything that is only for herself. Jenny has committed her life to serve God. She loves working with children, and has an uncanny way of understanding and communicating with them. Jenny loves fun, whether it's hammocks, random day-trips, fires, sports,...she often sets out on mini-adventures. Jenny can sing like an angel but she doesn't ever show off. She also has a compassion that exceeds most souls. When somebody she knows and loves is down, she will try to encourage them. Jenny is industrious. Fixing furniture, resurfacing furniture, driving a tractor, photo-editing,...she is a kind of Jane-of-all-trades. All of this fades, compared to her joy, it is really what makes her so beautiful. Jenny is the most joy-overflowing person I have ever met in my life. I truly believe this is her gift from God. It's a joy not found or placed in the things of this world, but in the things of the next. I've seen her go through tragedy, and her joy remain in-tact. She stands on the Rock."

Yes, yes, we can :D.

caleb&jennyweddingjune13,2015-0868


And even though sitting on the ground isn't Caleb's favorite, he complied without pause and only teased about it being his faaaavorite thing once he was down there. Lol. It was worth it :).

There was a chance of rain throughout the day, but it ONLY rained right before they got ready to leave! And it only lasted about 10 minutes; God is good :D. And look at adorable Jenny running through the rain!
