There are moments that just stop us in our tracks. The ones that sneak up on us during a ceremony–the ones that make us cry and smile at the same time. When Katelynn said the words “I sat in this chapel, wondering where God was going to lead me, only to find he was leading me to you”, it took us back to the day we were married, and how wonderful and blessed our life has been because of our marriage.
Katelynn and Chad had a small wedding ceremony in November of 2017 when they learned about his impending deployment with the US Army. They spent the first 9 months of their marriage apart as Chad was stationed overseas. Katelynn and Chad fought through the challenges of living on separate continents, and came out stronger, steadfast in their love for each other. As Chad said, “we can do anything.” The love they share for not just each other, but everyone in their lives, was an inspiration and joy to be around and capture.
UVA Chapel was the perfect backdrop for this beautiful day! When we arrived on the UVA campus, the sun was shining, and we were in awe of all the amazing architecture and greenery (in the middle of winter!!). The pillars and marble in the Rotunda made for the most elegant background! University of Virginia is really a photographers dream!
Katelynn and Chad, you two are amazing! We loved spending the day with you both, and our faces still hurt from smiling so much! Thank you for sharing such a special day with us! We are truly honored! We hope these photos will serve as a reminder of just how much you both have overcome already, and how special you both are!
