Jerry & Haley wrote their own vows for the ceremony. It’s something we don’t see very often but wish we saw more! Don’t get us wrong, we love the traditional “for better or for worse” vows. But there was just something so genuine and real about hearing Jerry read to Haley words he had written himself. And the tears were flowing all through their friends and family as Haley read hers to Jerry. The words they wrote were so incredibly beautiful!
“You have seen me at my best and you have seen me at my worst. And yet, you love me just the same.” This was the heart behind much of Haley’s vows to Jerry. And it has never been more true in any couple. They have been through so much together, including the passing away of some very close loved ones very recently. Our hearts go out to them, but we know in the end, having been there for each other through some very hard times has prepared them for the future. Marriage is both extremely difficult and amazing. You see each other at your moments of triumph and your moments of deepest despair. And yet, you choose to love. That’s marriage. And Haley’s beautiful words gave us hope that, even when life gets hard, they will choose to love each other.
Jerry & Haley had a gorgeous vineyard wedding right on the border between South Carolina & Georgia. It was a very windy day, but that didn’t take away from the beautiful sunlight and perfect temperatures!
You guys, if you know us in real life, you know how much we love our couples to death. But Jerry & Haley make that job so easy. They are two of the most lovable people in the world with hearts of solid gold. Even on the wedding day, when they were nervous and felt under pressure, they were so easy to talk to and direct. It was like a normal day to them! And that’s why we love them so much!
Haley & Jerry, we can’t say enough what a joy you have been in our lives. Seeing your names on our calendar brought nothing but smiles to our faces. From the engagement session to the bridal session and ultimately to your wedding day, we can honestly say it has been our pleasure having you as one of our brides and grooms. You have become a part of our family! We hope you absolutely love these images from your most wonderful day! We can’t wait to see you two again soon!
