Full of vigour and overlaying emotions, the amount of energy that this pair has was infectious and apparent during their wedding day. It made us laugh and tear all at the same time. We could feel a tremendous joy, gratefulness and blissfulness the pair had – from the big smiles upon seeing each other for the first time during the day, to the small weeps when exchanging thoughts. The enthusiasm when giving praise to God and the warmth to all their guests, family and friends.
We could feel the tension, the stress, the anticipation that Casey had. From the morning car ride to the way he looks at Janessa while she was striding down the aisle. It was overwhelming and beautiful all at the same time. While all eyes were on Janessa, Casey was having a moment of his own right at the front of the aisle. Guess, sometimes the spotlight does have its misses. But beyond that, we’re glad to witness all that and fully immerse in the poignant and heart-warming day.
Morning of the big day was a quiet and intimate one. We started the day off with a sincere prayer where Casey’s parents poured out their love and concern for him. As Christians, we often say that the best gift you can gift someone is the heart of prayer – to pray for their lives and to keep them in constant prayers. We could feel how much love, care and concern there was from the body language of Casey’s mom and dad. Even though we couldn’t hear what the prayers exactly were, we could see that amidst the happiness and joy, Casey’s parents felt a tinge of nostalgia and overwhelming pride for their son.
