Hannah & Justin’s love story is over EIGHT years in the making. After an almost two year engagement, the most joyful couple were finally married this past weekend! Alexis and I had been anxiously awaiting their wedding day, and we cannot say enough wonderful things about this group. When we arrived at the salon where the girls were getting ready, there was an overwhelming sense of calm. This theme carried throughout the entire day as well. One of my absolute favorite parts of the day is when Hannah read a letter that Justin wrote her. Hannah was so overcome with emotion, and it was the sweetest form of pure love. And after reading the letter, Hannah was so ready to see her groom for their first look!
After putting on her great grandmothers earrings and slipping in to her stunning dress, we were off to Percy Warner Park for Hannah & Justin’s first look! There’s nothing quite like getting to witness a groom see his bride for the first time. It was a beautiful, beautiful moment. Melts my heart every single time! If you spend any time around these two, you can instantly see that they are best friends. What started in their sophomore year Spanish class has turned into a rare kind of love that everyone longs for. Hannah & Justin exude joy, and are both so servant hearted to everyone around them.
On their wedding day, they were surrounded by the most wonderful friends and family from every stage of their relationship – high school, college, and post grad. It’s rare to meet couples who are high school sweet hearts, but those are the relationships that need to be treasured. After years of planning and preparation, it was finally time for these two to soak in every single moment! Hannah’s bridesmaids wore the prettiest shades of taupe and pink, and the groomsmen rocked their navy suits. I absolutely love when bridesmaids are able to pick out their favorite dress. And all of the colors went together so perfectly! Although it might have been a little windy, we could not have had better weather. A gorgeous day from start to finish!
Thinking back to their wedding, so many different aspects of their day stand out to me. Hannah’s youngest brother, Mark, definitely stole some hearts in his tuxedo with all of the flower girls on his arm! Hannah even got to walk down the aisle to her groom at her family church. Through all of their years together, every single moment had led to this. They were finally Mr. & Mrs. Stockdale!!
Hannah & Justin, it’s hard to put into words how big of an honor it was to document your love story. The way that you love other people and love each other is such a breath of fresh air. I pray that you cherish these images and memories forever and are continuously reminded of how deeply y’all are loved. Thank you for being the best kind of people!
So much love for you both!!
One of my FAVORITES from their wedding! So much joy
Nobody could get over how precious & handsome Hannah’s little brother, Mark, was!
