On a mid June day, the Florida summer sun beat down across the open cow pastures that overlooked the Barn at Cottonwood Ranch.
The Barn wasn’t far from where Jillian and Byron called home. Just a small distance away in Hilliard, a place they had grown not only in age together, but deeper in love for one another.
In the upstairs bridal suite the sun peaked in through the corner window, bouncing off the Sequin dresses hung along the wall. It reflected across the room to where Jillian sat, patiently waiting the to see Byron for the first time.
As they stood together before the ceremony, under the tall oak tree they paused for a moment, to hold each other close and soak it all in. This was a day they had hoped, planned and prayed diligently for, and it had finally arrived!
Jillian and Byron stood hand in hand, with their closest family and friends starring back at them them, pledging their love to one another and vowing to keep God in the center of their marriage every step of the way.
A joyful celebration echoed from that barn that evening, as Jillian and Byron gathered with their guests filling the barn with dancing, cheers… and a few happy tears.
Jillian + Byron, thank you for inviting us into your lives and, most importantly your love story. Your commitment to the Lord, and putting Him first is a testimony to the world! And we are honored to know you because of it. I wish you all the best as you continue to build your home and story together, I cant wait to see all the future holds for you both! Congrats!
