These two are something else.
HOW?! Every moment spent with them is just so, SO special. They are kind, GOOFY, and incredibly sweet.
Chase and I grew up next door to each other in the perfect little cul-de-sac. Who would have thought that someday I would photograph the neighbor boy’s wedding day? Gosh, I just love that.
When we met up with Chase + Jocelyn earlier this year, we all just clicked immediately. We were so honored when they asked us to take their engagement and wedding photos!
Their engagement photos were taken on one of the coldest days in January, and yet they were still full of smiles. It rained on their wedding day, but they were still full of smiles. When you’re with the right person, nothing seems to bother you… that’s Chase + Jocelyn.
They are thoughtful… Jocelyn had photos of her loved ones who passed on her bouquet that she carried close to her all day. Chase’s incredible Aunt Holly passed away a few years ago, and they had her sweet dog, Barkley, as the ring bearer.
They are goofy… Chase and three of his friends formed a band called “Denim” where they all dressed up in – you guessed it – denim and took some band photos in the morning and performed at the reception! It was a hit!
They are truly, deeply, madly in love… Their first look had me sobbing. I hope everyone can experience something as sweet and magical as like that sometime in their lives. They were both so excited and jittery before seeing each other, but when they hugged each other, all the nerves went away, and they were left with joy and happy tears.
Chase + Jocelyn, I am not great with words, so I don’t know if I can ever tell you truly how much of an honor it was to be a part of your wedding day, but WOW. Just wow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You two are medals.
Congratulations, Mr. + Mrs. Ockerse!
