It’s not often I hear that a bride and groom were first set up to meet each other by their fathers. Sometimes you hear about friends setting couples up or even siblings or moms, but I’ve never heard about dads doing the matchmaking. Well, that’s exactly what happened with Lynnea and Jake.
Lynnea’s dad saw Jake at church one Sunday and thought he looked like a nice guy. He decided to approach Jake’s dad with the fun idea of getting their two kiddos together. They both agreed that it had to be done. Even though Lynnea was living in South Carolina, introductions were made as soon as she was home for the summer. Jake and Lynnea hit it off and their love grew over long distance. It didn’t take them too long to realize that they were meant for each other. Before they knew it, an engagement was set and wedding plans were in motion. Who knew that dads could be such good matchmakers!
Jake and Lynnea were married on December 31st. It was such a beautiful winter day! Snow had fallen and was still lightly falling. We had such picturesque weather for that time of year. I was so impressed with Jake and Lynnea and their willingness to go out in the cold for some of the pictures. I knew they were uncomfortable, but those images were some of my favorite winter wedding images yet. Their bridal party and family were even willing to go outside for a few! It was such a great group to work with! We were able to get such beautiful images in the snow. You’ll see when you scroll through below.
Lynnea and Jake’s wedding was full of love for the Lord and love from their families. It was such a privilege to be a part of such a beautiful celebration.
Congratulations, Lynnea and Jake! I’m beyond happy for you……………and your dads! 🙂
