Esther and Elijah met at work. Sounds cliche, right? Not so much. You see, they work at Cal Farley's Boys Ranch where they work with kids every day. After Elijah moved here from Portland, Oregon, he and Esther got to know each other by seeing each others' daily selfless service for the kids at Boys Ranch. And you can definitely tell that this selflessness carries over into their relationship, and now their marriage. These two serve one another, respect one another, and love one another. 

Their Lake Tanglewood wedding was perfect. Esther got ready with her "army" of bridesmaids (all 8 of them!) in a beautiful, quaint cabin on the lake. The ceremony was right next to the lake on the lawn. They had details of baby's breath, sunflowers, and Chaco sandals (proof below). And to reiterate how amazing these two are, you should have heard the best man's speech about Elijah. Esther will be well taken care of for the rest of her life :)

Congrats you two! I'm so glad that I got to photograph your wedding day!

Esther opted to wear Chaco sandals down the aisle. Perfect. 

Esther and her girls know how to party and the ring bearer needed a hair cut before his march down the aisle.

Esther's bridesmaids gave her a special gift before the ceremony: a frame with each of their lipstick prints on it.

As you can see, the guys got a little wild.

Esther and Elijah had some of their mentors pray over them during the ceremony. After they had their first kiss, the married couple literally bounded down the aisle!

We were able to sneak away for a few minutes to get some photo time in the oh-so-beautiful golden hour.
