Kaitlyn+Josh Pettitte | Ashton Gardens Wedding

This past Saturday the heavens cheered. Kaitlyn Breanne Vinson and Joshua Blake Pettitte vowed their lives to one another, promising to die to their own self in order to love, serve, and give their lives to each other and to the Lord’s purposes for the rest of their lives. The couple married at West Houston’s newest wedding venue, Ashton Gardens. All of the details were clean, timeless, romantic, and heavenly. The Chapel was filled with beautiful natural light, the song “Holy Spirit” played as family and friends walked down the isle, the Lord’s presence filled the room, and the anticipation grew for the groom to lay his eyes on his bride for the first time that day. When the doors opened, and as Kaitlyn walked toward her groom, they both caught a glimpse of their prize…each other. When Josh saw Kaitlyn the overwhelming joy that overtook him blessed all of our hearts to witness. His genuine reaction to Kaitlyn was so vulnerable and unashamed. It moved me so deeply, and showed me an earthly example of the Glory that’s to be experienced when Christ receives His bride. I can’t even.. The whole moment was a beautiful picture, a precious moment, and something I will never forget.

After the ceremony, the guests exited to the beautiful ballroom as we finished up pictures and caught the rest of golden hour’s yummy light! The JOY that poured out of both Kaitlyn and Josh throughout the day was so contagious and made the whole day a celebration… no stress, mud on dresses, little glitches in the day.. nothing was going to stand in the way of the Joy that filled their hearts. The wedding party, family and friends enjoyed a delicious meal provided by Ashton Gardens, and then danced the night away celebrating a new marriage that will move mountains for the Lord’s kingdom.

I am so grateful to have known Kaitlyn personally throughout the years, and I am truly honored to have captured such a special couple’s wedding day. I don’t think (correction, I know I couldn’t) have personally hand picked someone more fitting for Kaitlyn than what the Lord has provided in Josh to be her husband. I am so excited for these two and the journey the Lord has set before them. To the newlyweds, my encouragement to you is to always make it your mission to out serve the other without seeking anything in return. When you are both doing it, your love and life will be so rich. When only one of you are doing it, I pray it shows the other the heart of Jesus and draws you both closer to him. Pursue the Lord daily.. he is your lifeline! Dream big together, and refrain from planning out how you think life should look. Allow yourself to give the Lord BIG YES’ and let him create your life together — it will make your journey and your marriage rich with purpose and always an adventure ;). Much love for you both, and thank you a million times over for choosing me to be your wedding photographer. Team Pettitte Forever!!

All my love — Al.
