A journey of heartbreak brought me to VOUS Church in 2018. Yet, another wave of heartache led me into an unexpected, one-on-one conversation with Jam at VOUS HQ. It all unfolded on a Sunday, right after service, back in March of this very year. While Jam and I frequently crossed paths on Sundays, that particular day marked a turning point. She chose to confide in me, share her story and pray for me that day.
Jam and Don were engaged in February and here we were in August photographing her wedding to the man of her dreams (literally and figuratively). Witnessing their union filled me with a renewed sense of hope and deepened faith. Their journey is a true testament that God orchestrates every twist and turn for a greater purpose.
Today, I’m thrilled to share a sneak peek of their wedding day at the Coral Gables Country Club. As I reflect on their love story, I can’t help but see the profound impact their marriage will have on other single people searching for love. Jam and Don’s story has already left a mark in my own life, and I’m confident it’ll touch others.
Normally I’m a fan of first looks because it gives us plenty of time to take portraits before the ceremony in case we’re running late but… give me a guy that will cry when he sees his bride walking down the aisle any day and I’ll skip the first look!
This party was like no other, the last two weddings we’ve done in 2023 have landed right in the middle of 21 days of prayer and fasting. At VOUS one of the values is to party with a purpose and let’s just say, our church family definitely knows how to party. This has probably been one of the best receptions we’ve had in a while.
