Courtney & Jake // Abilena Plantation, New Bern, NC // Intimate Wedding

Word from these amazing humans when I asked them to describe why they love each other:

"The reasons I love Jake are pretty simple. Sometimes I have more rough and bad days than I do the good days. Even on those bad days he reassures me that he loves me, he's never leaving, and that it will get better. Those dark days take a toll on me and Jake is the one who pulls me out of it. He's the light at the end of the tunnel. The Jake that I see and live with, and that not many other people get to experience, the future father of my children, the sensitive Jake. The way he is gentle with his words and holds me super tight when those dark days seep in on me. When he wants a kiss in the middle of Walmart and he sings "Why don't you just meet me in the middle" and I turn around and there he is already kissing me! He says "wow babe, that so wasn't the middle." We can be so mean to each other at times and in the middle of those mean, playful moments he always pauses and says "We are still playing around right?" then proceeds to be mean and smiles. He has a gentle heart, a loving mind, and passion for not only me but in everything he does. He works sooo incredibly hard for our little family and I will be forever grateful for that. It is crazy how much I love him!!!

I love Courtney for many reasons. She is a wonderful person to be with, she supports me in everything I do. She is gorgeous , especially her eyes and freckles. She is my best friend and theres nobody else I would want to spend for ever with on this journey called life."
