Johnny & Whitney | Married | Somerville, Alabama Wedding

Johnny & Whitney’s wedding in Somerville, was absolutely gorgeous! Their portraits and reception were at the Historic Somerville courthouse, the oldest standing courthouse in Alabama, and it provided a beautiful backdrop for their big day.  The two of them are some of the kindest people you will ever meet. Almost all of the speeches at the rehearsal dinner were about how kind are. Its obvious that they were made for each other.

There were so many special moments during the day. One of my favorites was when Whitney’s dad, who also performed the ceremony, saw her for the first time. In November, Pastor Lewis was diagnosed with cancer, and Whitney wasn’t sure if her dad would even be able to perform the ceremony. God answered a lot of prayers, and Pastor Lewis was able to be involved in the ceremony. So when he saw Whitney for the first time that day, there were a lot of emotions.Also during the unity ceremony, the candles had burned down so much that they had to find other candles to light theirs with. Thankfully the y had decorated the stage with lots of candles and flowers. Whitney also surprised Johnny by singing “I Choose You” after they lit the candle. I got all teary eyed during that part.

It was such an honor to be involved in Johnny and Whitney’s day and watch these two who love Jesus commit to loving each other and serving Christ together. Enjoy just a few of my favorites from their wedding day.

The groom’s table was California/beached theme since that is where Johnny is from. It was really unique and cute.

Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Rasmussen! I am so excited to see what God has in store for your lives.

    What a cool location! And I especially loved the image of the bridesmaids gathered around the bride before the ceremony.

    Thank you! The old courthouse was a dream, especially since it was air conditioned 🙂
