Saturday evening could not have turned out more beautiful for Angela + Tom’s outdoor, bbq wedding, at N. Kingstown Assembly of God‘s beautiful grounds. Everything about this day went so perfectly and I am beyond happy for these two. All of Angela’s personal touches were everywhere. The soft colors, greenery, rustic decor, and lanterns, tied together beautifully.
The most evident part about the day was the fact that God was in everything. Angela and Tom met at church, through a mutual friend, and were both apart of the church play. When they finally set a side some time for one another, they connected immediately because of their faith and love for Jesus.
Between the words at the ceremony, the vows, the music, and the speeches; God’s word was everywhere. There was such a sweet presence all through out the evening.
At the very end of the night, Angela had the beautiful idea to honor the lives that weren’t able to be there through lighting big, floating lanterns.
Angela’s Maid of Honor gifted her with this really cute, personalized hanger.
Angela’s second dress for dancing was perfect!
Her makeup was stunning! Angela, you are so beautiful.
Her finishing touches, and boy did that dress look amazing on her!!
Tom’s mama making sure he looked right and was ready to go.
This table for the guests was such a sweet accent. So many personal touches and cute ideas to help the guests be apart.
I love seeing their pictures from their engagement session. That was such a fun time!
So many lights and beautiful details.
These cute tea lights hung in the trees as the back drop for the ceremony.
Everyone eagerly waiting for the ceremony to start.
Isn’t she one of the most adorable little flower girls!
Of course little Noah had to be the ring bearer! Angela is Noah’s caretaker during the week, and sometimes takes care of my daughter as well. She’s amazing!
They shared their own personal vows and both promised to love the way God desires them to.
Then they did the sand ceremony, as a representation of two lives, with the Holy Spirit, intertwined as one. They cannot be separated.
Everyone lifted their hands as they prayed a blessing over the couple.
“You may now, kiss the bride!”
Mr. and Mrs. Jervis!
Angela and her beautiful mama.
The beautiful couple with Tom’s parents.
I can’t even handle all of the beauty in this picture!!!
Such a beautiful bridal party.
Angela, you are stunning.
The sun was setting and it became time for the rest of the celebration!
The reception area was filled with so many beautiful touches and gorgeous flowers.
Their sweetheart table was absolutely perfect.
They wanted a BBQ style wedding, and the food was beyond delicious.
After everyone ate and settled in, the night drew dark, and it was time for the cake and desserts!
How perfect is Angela in her second dress?!?! LOVE IT.
The best man, Garrett gave such a simple, but powerful speech, as well as gifting Tom with a pocket bible.
Loreen, the Matron of Honor, did amazing as well, and she truly brought so much joy and peace throughout the whole day.
Time for their first dance!
Angela surrounded by some of her main ladies!
As the night was coming to an end, it was time for lighting and sending off the lanterns. This was such a beautiful way to close the night!
It was super sweet, watching these embrace one another as they stared off into the sky, looking at all of the pretty lanterns floating away. But I wanted to end with this picture, of a decoration that was displayed at the wedding.
I truly believe and know, that if you both keep trusting Jesus and putting Him first in your relationship, your lives and marriage will be blessed. That no matter what comes, you both will make it through.
Jesus came to give us life, and life to the fullest, and I know you both will have many laughs and adventures, but also lasting joy in the hard times.
Thank you Angela and Tom for letting me be apart of such a beautiful day! It could not have been more beautiful. It embodied who you both are perfectly and I am so happy for you two!!!
