Becklin + Frank | A Tyger Pines Arabians Wedding

So many of us had been waiting for over a year for this day to come.  I still remember meeting Becklin and her mom for the first time and falling in love with both of them.  And when we met up for their engagement session (one year and one day before the wedding!), Frank was as kind and genuine and fun as Becklin herself was!

A year felt like a long time away and I’m sure to these two, it definitely felt like an eternity some days!  But I loved seeing Becklin’s posts and countdowns to May 13.  They were SO excited and SO ready to become husband and wife and to begin their adventure together. I am so thankful for the time I was able to spend with these two and their families.

The biggest thing they wanted for their day was for God to be given all the glory, honor and praise… and that’s exactly what happened.  They had a First Look (which you guys know I love!) and during their time together celebrated communion and prayed before we did much else.  It was beautiful.  And I also love that Ben was capturing their day on video so they have that to look back on their day with too!

Their family and friends gathered outside for their early evening ceremony.  They prayed over Becklin and Frank and everyone agreed to support them, guide them and pray for them and their marriage.

We left feeling so encouraged not just by this sweet couple but by their friends and family and especially their faith.  God is going to do so much with these two and I can’t wait to see His plans unfold for them!

I’ve already written way too much, but I’ve also posted way too many photos from their day, so it all works!  Enjoy this extra long post from this really special day!

Becklin… what a stunning bride you are!

This is why I adore First Looks!  You don’t get to hug each other like this when you wait until the ceremony to see your bride/groom-to-be!

Frank’s wedding gift to Becklin was this hope chest that he built himself!  So that’s what they used to take communion off of.

For as gorgeous as Becklin is, Frank is just as dapper.

I still can’t get over how beautiful this location is!


Her daddy hadn’t seen her dress at all so she did a First Look with him too!

Between the flower girls and this precious ring bearer, my ability to handle all things cute and adorable was filled to the brim!

At one point, they played the Chicken Dance song for Becklin and all the kids she had ever babysat!  It was the sweetest thing!

Y’all.  The cuteness of these two black and white photos is almost enough to put me over the edge.  How amazing are these two ladies??

I just adore portrait time with my couples.  Yes, we’d gotten lots before the ceremony, but when the light is beautiful and glowy like this
and your is up for it, we’re able to get even MORE portraits of the two of them!

Oh I do love a good veil toss photo!!

Becklin changed before they left and we had a little more time so we snuck in a few more portraits :-)
But oh my gosh, how gorgeous is she in that dress??
