At 12 years old, would you have known it if you met the man God created for you? I know I definitely wouldn’t have. I mean I probably would have thought I did, but McKenna, she KNEW she was going to marry Jackson. She told her mom she was going to marry him one day, and she was right! Jackson was best friends with her older brother Matt, so he was always over and McKenna always had the biggest crush on him. It wasn’t until McKenna got enough courage to ask him to her sorority’s formal that his feelings started to shift to more than his friends little sister. From that night on they talked on a deeper, more meaningful and spiritual level and it clicked that the person they were both meant to be with was right in front of their faces for years.
And when Jackson asked McKenna to share his last name in December of 2019, she shouted yes, a yes that was 11 years in the making. Their family celebrated them in a big way and the planning began! And it was a beautifully planned on a perfect October day in Goshen. I loved all the natural greenery with the pop of burgundy. I am so excited to share this day with you! There’s nothing more beautiful than experiencing two people so in love that nothing else in the world matters but being next to each other.
