Joy and Josh believe that at the heart of everything, there is community.
They have both spent years pouring their souls into the communities around them. Volunteering. Educating. Serving. And while they have selflessly helped countless others, they have in turn built their own community. The depth of those that love Joy and Josh is simply astounding, and is something that they take immense amounts of pride in.
At Joy and Josh’s wedding, their community came together to celebrate with smiles and laughter pouring in. The two even had a handful of their closest friends perform the ceremony. Rather than one officiant, friends from different parts of their lives took turns speaking on the values of love, friendship, and – you guessed it – community. Their ceremony was unlike anything I have ever seen..in the most incredible way.
Enjoy some of my favorites from Joy and Josh’s Lionsgate wedding!
Joy and Josh’s first look – complete with bridesmaids watching from afar!
Skype and Bear – honorary bridal party members., and two of the cutest dogs around 😉
Best groom pose ever? I think so.
Joy had a locket from her late father attached to her bouquet. So, so sweet.
Simple and elegant with just the right amount of color.
Spending a few minutes together before the ceremony started.
Each one of Josh and Joy’s “officiants” brought a new feel to the ceremony. Some serious, and some more relaxed, they showed all the sides of the couple’s relationship.
Favorite. Hands down.
Her cute little smile…
A break from the reception during sunset gave us the most beautiful, sun-soaked images.
Joy and Josh – I cannot congratulate you enough. Not only on your Lionsgate wedding, but on the influence you have had on so many people, and that I know you will continue to have. You two are gems!
