James and Bethany: wedding! :D {missouri state fairgrounds, sedalia, mo wedding photographer}

Two more friends have gotten married: James and Bethany :D.

Bethany Jennings is now...Bethany Jennings! Haha. That doesn't happen very often :D. Dan Sem was the main photographer and he asked me to second shoot for him :). It was so fun being a part of the day :D.

The crazy-awesome Rebekah Gates did the hair :D. This is her doing Evangeline's (Bethany's younger sister and maid of honor :) ). Evangeline is so wonderful :D.

And here's Bethany! She is such a sweetheart and just so adorable :).

Bethany's mom, Mrs. Terri, chatting with Bethany's good friend Jamie whose last name is now Skinner!! (as of a few weeks ago :D ).

See how precious she is?! :D

Bethany was so calm and easy-going :).

And her dress was sooo beautiful!!

and MODEST!! We were all in awe. Haha :D.

I love these sisters so much :D.

Bethany has the cutest laugh :D.

Sooo happy!! :D


Siblings asking questions. Hehe :D. (Yeah, the guy on the right is one of Bethany's younger brothers, Zachary. He's great :D ).

This picture makes me happy :D.

Bethany's dad, Bro. Bob, came to see Bethany before the ceremony :).

Guests arriving :D.

Mrs. Terri and Bethany's older brother Jared :).

James's parents :).

Bethany's youngest brother, Evan (who's great too :D ), and Evangeline :).

And here's happy happy James!! Yay :D.

Bro. Charles Leiter officiated :).

I loved that James spoke as well! It was so good :).

Bro. Bob spoke too :).

Bro. Wes and Mrs. Jill Belling sang a really sweet song he wrote for Mrs. Jill a long time ago :).

Bro. Tim Conway was the main speaker.


And this is James's best man: David Luciano :).

So thankful for the Lord allowing Bro. Bob to attend :'). (For those who don't know, Bro. Bob has had pancreatic cancer for almost 2 years now. I would encourage you to read his journal about life since then; his life is an incredible testimony to God's grace.)

Hehe :D.

Hooray! They're married!! :D.

That rooms was filled with some happy people :D (including myself :D).

People watching us outside as Dan took family pictures :D.

Bethany's family :D.

Bethany's nephew Ramond. Hehe :D.

James's family :D.

Wedding party :D.

Seestars :D.

They both looked so lovely.

Reception time! :D.

Decorating the car :).

They did what they could with the meager supplies they found. Lol :D.

Heading out!

They were so happy :D.

Praise the Lord for what He has done :).

With a smile,
