At 14 Kody had it pegged when he told his buddy “I’m going to marry her”. Believe it or not, here we are about 9 years later and Kody is doing just that – marrying his soul mate and best friend who God laid on his heart from the beginning. Jerry and I just clicked with these two. They are our kinda people and what we love most about them is how much they love each other. Their joy together radiates through every laugh and every kiss! There’s no doubt they were meant to be together!
We decided to meet at the Outer Banks to celebrate their engagement at the Bodie Island Lighthouse. Lighthouses were special to Kody’s Mother who passed away 2 years ago and having a Lighthouse in their photos would be a beautiful way to signify her presence in their lives. As we arrived that day for our shoot Kody told us that they hadn’t even realized until their drive up that day that our session date was actually the anniversary of his Mom’s passing. We were all stunned at how perfect the timing was for documenting their love together and it was the most beautiful sign that his Mother was watching down on them that very moment!
The afternoon was perfect. And beautiful. And so full of everything joyful, just as their October wedding will be later this year! We can’t wait to celebrate with Ashli and Kody again SOON!
