October 1, 2011 Albertville, Alabama
It is a huge compliment and honor to shoot the wedding of a fellow wedding vendor. Needless to say, we were thrilled to be shooting Jessica and Scott's wedding. Jessica owns a photography studio,Shurden Studios, and takes great photos!
Jessica and Scott were married at The Lumpkin House in Albertville, Alabama. On the morning of their wedding, Scott gave Jessica a locket, a family Bible and a sweet note. Jessica added the locket to her bouquet, right next to the locket her father had given her mother on their wedding day. It's those things that totally melts my heart!
If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you saw us post a picture of the cutest groomsman ever. In case you didn't see it, his name is Google. He may be short but you can't miss him, because he is the cutest ever in his little shirt and tie. You also may hear him cry a little during the vows. He just wanted someone to hold him so he could see. Some people may call him a dog, but Jessica and Scott refer to him as their child.
It always makes me a teary-eyed when a parent or grandparent officiates the wedding. Jessica's dad is a pastor and pronounced then husband and wife. But before he did, he officially gave Jessica to Scott. We included a part of that in the trailer. It's hard not to get a little misty. There was also a moment during the ceremony when all of the officiants prayed over Jessica and Scott. What an awesome way to begin a marriage, having people you care about pray over you.
Jessica and Scott were giddy and all smiles. You can see it in their eyes, smiles and the way they speak to each other ... they are absolutely head-over-heels in love with each other. You get a glimpse of that in the video above. Jessica and Scott (and Google) ... we wish you much happiness as you start your adventure together in Kansas!
