Kaylee and Jamin were married on July 16, 2016 at Crossings Community Church. A reception followed at Southwest Christian University. Jamin and Kaylee had us laughing from the moment we met them. It's so obvious these two have so much fun together, all the time.
Kaylee and Jamin met at Southwest Christian University, but they really became friends on a mission trip to Guatemala. The girls on the trip needed to be accompanied into town by a guy, so when Kaylee went to the market, she took her "bartering buddy" with her, Jamin. 2 years go by and they both were working for Residence Life at Southwest Christian, so they were spending more time together. Kaylee fell in love with Jamin's loving personaility and his ability to make every situation more fun. Jamin was drawn to Kaylee because of her values and what she stood for.
Jamin proposed on October 20, 2015. It was Kaylee's parent's 26th wedding anniversary and Kaylee and her mom planned, cleaned and cooked for their "anniversary party." As it turns out, Jamin set the whole thing up to propose to Kaylee! He took Kaylee into her backyard where all her family and friends were waiting. He read her a poem he had written about wanting to spend their lives together and then popped the question. Of course, she said yes
When Kaylee started planning their wedding, she didn't want to look back in 20 years and ask wonder "What was I thinking?" with her decor and color choices. So, she wanted to choose timeless ideas. In addition to that, she wanted the whole day to be God-honoring and a whole lot of fun!
Kaylee said that she would tell a future bride to find the things that you absolutely cannot compromise on and plan those things first. Then, accommodate the other ideas (and the rest of your budget) around those things. Kaylee also said try to cherish the moments in your engagement!
So many of Jamin and Kaylee's friends and family are so musical! So look for all the special musical moments during the video- there's one in the ceremony, and then her mom sings a song to Kaylee and Jamin during the reception too!
We have loved getting to know Kaylee and Jamin, and getting to capture their big day. We hope you enjoy their video!
