For months we look forward to Kimberlee and Stephen’s wedding. We’ve known Kimberlee almost all her life and being part of her wedding day was extremely special for Philip and myself. You see Kimberlee’s dad, Gregg, was our youth pastor when we were growing up and the Hauss family has always been a huge part of our lives. Gregg and his family changed our lives; we are who we are because of the Hauss family and we will forever be grateful for their involvement in shaping our character. Three years ago Gregg played the biggest role in our lives, he officiated our wedding ceremony. We specifically picked Gregg to marry us because of the huge part he played in our lives as we were growing up as youth and as we fell in love.

And on Kimberlee’s wedding day Gregg played the same role again, but this time not only as the minister but as a dad giving his little girl away to the man of her dreams. As Kimberlee got ready to walk down the aisle Gregg stood proudly by her side making her giggle and laugh so that the tears would not flow. But as soon as the doors opened the tears of happiness that we all had flowed freely. Gregg gave his daughter to Stephen and then gave one of the best homilies we have heard. Kimberlee and Stephen left the chapel happily married, ready to embrace the new that is before them.

All day we laughed and enjoyed the greatness that is involved in a wedding. But for me the best part of the day was watching a new family formed and seeing all their friends and family fully supporting them. Everyone who was a part of Stephen and Kimberlee’s wedding was their for one reason, they completely believed that these two were meant to be one.

And here is a small look at Kimberlee and Stephen’s day. We can’t wait for you guys to see the rest!

I have to give a huge thanks to Kimberlee and Stephen for enduring the craziness that is the Memphis July heat. It was over 100 degrees with 100% humidity on their wedding day and they happily endured the heat so we could create beautiful images for them. I honestly cannot remember a hotter day in Memphis! Thanks guys!!!

I love this moment between Stephen and his dad. The smile on Stephen’s face says it all:

This is one happy couple 🙂

Kimberlee and Stephen,

Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your day! It was a beautiful day and we were beyond honored to share in your love. We cannot wait to see what the future has for you, we know your lives will be amazing now that you are one!

We love you and your families more than you will ever know!

Savannah and Philip
