July 30th was a day of joy, excitement, and worship. From the very start of the day when the girls sang together as they got ready to when Hannah & Alec held their hands up to heaven in worship when they were moments away from being married, it was so apparent that the Spirit was present with this couple for their day. Hannah & Alec were surrounded by their friends and family who supported and cared for them both deeply as they wed in Charlotte, North Carolina on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
The blush pink, cream, and lush green palette that Hannah & Alec picked for their wedding was the perfect combination of tones throughout their details and bridal party attire. Each of Hannah’s nine bridesmaids wore a different dress, each finding the perfect hue to compliment the beautiful wedding theme. The groomsmen sported classic black suits that stood out perfectly against the lush green background of the trees outside of Charlotte. This wedding was beautifully planned from start to finish.
However, the most beautiful part of this wedding day was the sacred union of two sweet souls after so many years. Alec had thoughtfully and intentionally pursued Hannah since she was 14 years old. After many, many prayers from both Alec, Hannah and their families, they finally arrived to the day they would wed. Five years of waiting, years of long-distance phone calls, countless weekend trips to see one another and they were finally here; to the day they had always dreamed of. Hannah & Alec’s relationship is a true testament of God’s love, mercy and grace. While Hannah & Alec are exceptional individuals, it is so clear by anyone who is blessed to know them that they are truly better together. We are so thankful to have been a part of such a beautiful, Spirit-filled wedding and we could not be more excited for the new Mr. & Mrs. Mangum! 🙂
Take a peek at some of our favorite images from their day!
Aren’t these ladies just stunning?!
Yes, these are ALL his groomsmen. Yes, there are TWELVE of them!
Although I know it’s hard to believe, but neither of them are models; THOUGH THEY SHOULD BE!
Hannah, you are truly radiant; inside and out.
It’s almost ceremony time!
Get ready, get set…
Grab your tissues! Here she comes…
This moment, when Hannah & Alec’s parents surrounded them in prayer, was so deeply emotional. Not a dry eye in the building!
Because you can’t just walk down the aisle when you’ve waited 5 years to marry the love of your life…you RUN down that aisle!
(And nearly run down your photographer!) 😛
