There are beautiful weddings and then there is Javier and Kayleen's wedding! It was off the charts beauty, full of love and intentionality. From start to finish, this couple made every decision for their wedding based on how they could spend the most time celebrating with the people they care about. Their big day was no different. Tossing out the grand entrance at the last minute so that they could get more time their guests during cocktail hour, taking thirty minutes to get them to their cake to do the cake cutting because they took time to talk to everyone in their path to the cake and staying to clean up at the end to enjoy all their kind friends and family who were there to help tear down. And that's just the surface!
It was clear to see that their friends and family loved them just the same. Javier and Kayleen's wedding didn't have many of the typical traditions planned, but with a little nudging of friends mixed with so much desire to celebrate this couple, there ended up doing more traditions than what is even typical! And not to mention, they had a massive wedding party that barely fit in the pictures!
And then there is the love between Javier and Kayleen. Their love is sincere, is deep and is fun. Kayleen surprised Javier by reading her vows in Spanish- a massive gesture of her love for Javier. While it was truly beautiful, the foot washing ceremony was probably the highlight of the ceremony- taking time to symbolize their love and service to one another for life.
It was truly an honor to be a part of the wedding that was so much about a lifetime of marriage, the love between friends and family, and support for one of the sweetest couples to boot!
