If there was ever a real life fairytale (in addition to our fairy tale of course!) it would be this one. Zoe and Glen are a for-real-no-joke Prince and Princess… at Disney World, that is! Zoe plays Jasmine and Belle and Glen plays Gaston. They make dreams come true for people every single day doing what they do and you can imagine our delight when this beautiful couple asked US to play a role in documenting their very own fairytale dream come true!
Jerry and I haven’t been able to stop talking about how this love that they share is seriously unlike any other. They have grown closer to Christ together as a couple and have kept God at the center of their relationship and in every moment of solidifying their marriage together with him.
They planned their wedding in Canton OH, near where Zoe grew up. The fall color was at it’s peak vibrancy all through the rolling hills of Canton and especially, it seemed, at Gervasi Vineyard. Even through the cold raindrops that paid us a visit on their day, the landscape proved to be almost as beautiful as Zoe herself :)
Now let’s talk about Zoe and beautiful, shall we? This girl is the epitome of classy and beautiful. Her outward beauty is what you see first but as soon as you know her you realize her beauty goes deep, deep within. She truly carries the beauty of Christ in her heart which shines unceasingly from her every pore! And Glen is the perfectly handsome compliment to her gorgeous soul.
We didn’t actually meet Zoe and Glen in person (aside from a Facetime Chat!) until the day of their wedding but throughout the months that we got to know each other long distance, we knew every moment that there was something incredibly profound about this couple. They are old souls who steep themselves in the things most important in this life and in faith.
I think you’ll agree after viewing their photos that this Christ-like love that they share for one another and exemplify to the world is so very alive and shines vibrantly through them! I know our lives are blessed because we were gifted the experience of knowing Mr. & Mrs. Nelson! I hope your day is a little brighter after seeing their love, too :)
Happy married life, Mr. & Mrs. Nelson!!
