Carly and Alek’s wedding day was exactly what we envisioned it would be – peaceful, serene, and celebrated with more joyful grins, laughter, hugs, and happiness than one person can handle without their cheeks hurting from smiling so big.

Carly, you were SO MUCH FUN. You radiated Christ’s joy, and your life mantra of “Run Wild” is truly the essence of you, girl. In our hearts, you are impacting us to run wild over here to – within the bounds of the work we do, to point people more and more to Jesus with every image and every word.

Alek, you are so incredible. The first time you saw Carly as she walked down the aisle was more than a perfect picture, we absolutely LOVED seeing you SEE her – fully and totally in all of her beauty, inside and out. Your reaction was FUN, and honestly, we can’t even imagine how incredibly intentional and joy-filled your lives will be, because just being with you for 8 hours on your wedding day made us want to stay longer, laugh harder, and eat more ice cream than we ever had before.

Alek and Carly, we love you. Have an AMAZING summer, you two. You deserve all the adventures of a lifetime and we pray you experience them all 🙂
