Do you see the rainbow? This was such a unique and sweet moment. Quinten's father passed away a few years ago, so many people were missing him and thinking about him on the wedding day. When we took this picture, none of us even noticed the rainbow behind them. But when we saw it on the back of the camera and saw the rainbow, Quinten and Kaelan felt so much comfort and peace knowing that his father was with them on their big day after all. Kaelan said, "It was just like George was looking down from heaven and gave his sign of approval. We knew he was there when the rain barely sprinkled over all of us during our ceremony, after when it poured, and the rainbow at the end…that was it. ❤ If all of that doesn't make you feel some kind of emotion, I don't know what will. Shew lol!" You can be sure tears were definitely in my eyes.

Chase Stinnett and Sara Hamilton were filled with SO much joy on their wedding day and it was such an honor to be able to capture it all on camera! They were married on May 28th, 2017, at the Estes Chapel in Wilmore, surrounded by so many loving friends and family. It is impossible to look at these two and not see their radiant love for both Christ and each other.
Chase and Sara met on a "blind date" through mutual friends. At first, she was “SO not interested,” as she puts it… but they eventually met for breakfast at Cracker Barrel, where she ordered extra butter and stole his heart. They ended up talking for three hours talking about their faith and what they wanted out of a relationship, and they met for another date that very night. They fell hard and fast, and the rest is history! When I asked Sara what her favorite thing about Chase is, she answered that he is “the most kind-hearted man, the best listener, a sweet servant, and the most humble leader I have ever met.”
Sara says that her one of her favorite parts of the wedding was, "Everything honored God that day. It was exactly what I wanted and nothing I could plan for. So many things went wrong before that day, but when I walked down the aisle to Chase, the man that God MADE for me, it was my most favorite walk.” The Stinnetts look forward to their future together. They want to travel together and have babies to love. More than anything, they aim to be an example of the beautiful gifts that God gives and the love between Christ and the church. Show this couple some love and enjoy these highlights from their special day!

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I am sharing about Brian and Sarah's wedding. They were married on March 11th, 2017. I was 35 weeks pregnant at this wedding, so it was the last wedding I shot before Anna's arrival. It was an absolute joy to photograph this sweet couple’s wedding. Their love for each other echoed throughout each part of their day, as you can hopefully see from their pictures.
Brian and Sarah met in high school when a mutual friend (the MOH) introduced them. Brian texted their friend and asked, “Who’s that girl you’re always with?” She gave him Sarah's number, and the rest was history. Brian proposed to Sarah on the beach with their family present to share in the excitement.
I asked Sarah what her favorite thing about Brian was and she said, “I love his commitment to family. He is endlessly caring for those around him. I also love his sense of humor. He can make the entire room burst into laughter and who doesn’t love that?!” Their entire day was a complete fairytale. However, the couple’s favorite part would be watching their families and friends celebrate together. People of all ages were on the dance floor!
Hello friends (this is a long intro, sorry)! If you are new here or returning to my website once again, welcome and thank you! I’m so glad you’re here. I have been neglecting my blog and that is about to change. I invite you to join me in celebrating the wonderful clients, couples, and families for which I have the pleasure of capturing memories.
2017 was a busy but beautiful year filled to the brim with the Lord’s blessings. As many of you know, Austin and I brought our sweet Anna into the world and have soaked up every moment of loving her since (I may do a separate blog post all about our sweet girl one day)! My photography business continued to grow and evolve, and I was honored to capture so many precious moments for many amazing people. The plan during this "down season" of winter is to feature the engagement sessions and weddings from this past year once a week on the blog, and I would love more than anything for you to follow along with each post. I am so grateful for your support of Becky Willard Photography and look forward to documenting the sweetest moments in your lives!
Up first on the blog is the Wesley Wedding. Photographing this wedding was a wonderful start to the year. Kristen Asmus and Tyler Wesley were such a sweet couple. They attended Centre College together, where the two were also involved in Campus Outreach. Kristen and Tyler became husband and wife on January 28th, 2017, and their love for one another and their love for Jesus radiated throughout the entire day. They chose the rustic simplicity and natural beauty of Riverside Farm for their location to get ready, have their first look, and take bridal party pictures. Kristen got ready alongside her bridesmaids, mom, and aunts… and let me tell you, it was so sweet to watch her with her girls! They had so much fun laughing, dancing, and even listening to old rap songs as they curled their hair and applied their makeup. The bride beamed as she read a love letter from her groom and as her mom helped her slip into her simple yet stunning lace dress and classic pearl earrings.
Kristen and Tyler chose to do a “first look” on the front porch of the beautiful white farmhouse prior to the ceremony, and their nerves were immediately replaced with joy and excitement the moment Tyler turned around to see his bride. The ceremony was at Kristen and Tyler's church, Grace Presbyterian in Danville. Following their ceremony, they hosted friends and family for a reception at the Showroom in Danville. The reception was filled with barbeque, cake, dancing, sparklers, and smiles! Although the wedding took place during a colder winter month, it was a gorgeous day and warmed up enough to take several outdoor photos. The wedding party was so patient and laidback, even out in the chilly weather. We were blessed with lots of sunshine and a gorgeous landscape that highlighted the couple’s style perfectly. Not only was Kristen and Tyler’s adoration for each other evident, but it was easy to see the love and support of their bridesmaids, groomsmen, family, and friends as well. Thank you to the Wesleys for choosing Becky Willard Photography for your day!
