A new year, a new decade, and a new Mr and Mrs Gibson! We celebrated 2020 with Kelly Marie and Tyler’s beautiful winter wedding at First Baptist Church in Huntsville.
There’s something a little extra special about photographing a wedding at a place that has become a Huntsville icon. The mural of the ascending Jesus is almost as famous as our Saturn V rocketship! What a treat to compose such an art piece as the backdrop for portraits.
Another surprise that delighted us was that the tree stage from the Living Christmas Tree production was still up, and it was amazing! What a setting for the ceremony!!
There’s also something a little extra special about this sweet couple! Kelly Marie and Tyler truly encompass a heartfelt joy that reflects their love for Jesus. One of the things we really connected with during their first coffee date with us was their hearts for ministry, discipleship, and missions.
Watching them on the wedding day absolutely brought joy to my heart. Their huge smiles and lit-up eyes made my heart squeeze. You’ll see what I mean when you browse through this blog post. I smile every time I see that laughter of Kelly Marie’s!
One of my favorite memories of this wedding day was the incredible reception Kelly Marie and Tyler created for their guests! First of all, there was a coffee bar. Their first date was at Rooster’s Crow, so it was so fitting. Tyson and his team not only provided a made-to-order coffee bar, but also created a special coffee blend as Kelly Marie and Tyler’s guest favors! You can imagine how happy Joel and I were to be surrounded by coffee all night.
And let me tell you, this crowd can dance with such grace! I enjoyed watching them so much! They knew the dances to songs that I didn’t even know had organized dances.
Kelly Marie and Tyler also choreographed an entire production for the grand entrance. The whole wedding party put on a show that just blew us away. So impressive!
Pies made with love by people in their lives. Such a neat idea!
Kelly Marie & Tyler, thank you so much for letting us start off the new decade by your sides! Watching the love and joy you have for each other, your families, and for God was incredible to witness. We wish you a beautiful and wonderfully rich life together as you serve him!
