Baylynn and Jaz’s wedding day was one of the most emotional ones to date. It had been 7 months since they had seen each other, which made it SO much more precious! I have never been to Homestead meadows but after Sunday, i’m shocked and I want to go back again sometime!! (so beautiful! Baylynn and Jaz are both kind, gracious people with such a heart for one another! Because they were so relaxed, it made the whole wedding day seem to be a stress free day! She was the most content, quiet bride – just soaking up every second of the day she’s been waiting for, for a long long time! Jay’s emotions, including the first time he saw her, was one of the most emotional expressions i’ve seen in a while! They both couldn’t stop shedding those tears of joy, and love. That emotion is what I as a photographer LIVE to capture. Another special detail, is that Jaz was wearing his military suit, (ah! so nice) but then Baylynn had a sweet bow, and his badge to cherish and incorporate into her details. It was a perfect touch. The weather started out cloudy, and everyone started to slightly worry with the ceremony outside, but I reassured them rain is good luck  😉 Also, we may or may not have held up the reflector over the brides head for a few shots while the rain was coming down! haha we were thankful it stopped raining and the rest of the day was beautiful! 
Baylynn and Jaz, thank you for allowing me to be a part, and capture your perfect day. Also, Jaz thank you for your service. We have the freedom we have today because of men like you, for that we are ever thankful! Have fun in Michigan you two <3
