After weeks of pouring rain, Colten and Andrea’s wedding day was bright, green and glorious. The vibrant weather was like a kiss from above, showering blessing on two lives becoming one. The Johnson celebration had a global focus with a heartland feel at James & Shirley’s Homestead in Riley, KS.
The farmhouse bedrooms and barn loft provided the perfect backdrop for the bride and groom preparing for their big day.
Colten and Andrea were surrounded by ample amounts of love, support and prayer throughout the day.
Nothing beats the look in a daddy’s eyes when he sees his little girl as a bride for the first time.
Anticipation builds as the groom waits to behold his beloved bride!
Complete joy, wonder and awe. These two cherish each other so much.
I love the dynamic Colten and Andrea share together. They’re heartfelt companions who can laugh, cry and overcome the odds with each other by their side.
How romantic! This scene could be from right from the pages of a Jane Austen novel!
Friendship is part of the glue that binds this couple together.
The way he looks at her!!
I love capturing the authentic connection between the bride and groom and their families.
It was so important to Colten and Andrea to steal away with each other before the ceremony to share some time in prayer and take the Lord’s Supper together. These moments of quieting their hearts really fueled their ability to be fully present in the joy and celebration of the day.
These intimate moments really heightened Colten and Andrea’s sense of connection. It was incredible to capture how much they treasure each other as they relished in the beauty of their wedding day.
Finally the time had come.
That glance says it all.
Colten and Andrea spoke straight from the heart about their commitment to loving God and loving others at each other’s side. Their vows were so personal and so full of life.
Sharing wisdom and passing on a legacy.
Mr. and Mrs. Johnson!
The newly wedded couple entered the reception with a dip and a kiss!
“Cherish one another deeply from the heart.” – 1 Peter 4:8
It’s easy to see where all this love came from.
Party time! It’s so fun to see friends and family enjoy each other.
When the music cut out for a second, the crowd picked up with the KSU fight song!
YUM! Someone decided to snack on the sprinkles!
This getaway encountered some technical difficulties! But they were soon remedied and the day ended even more lovely than it began! Congrats Colten and Andrea Johnson on an incredible wedding day and a wonderful life journey ahead!
