Before their intimate micro wedding in Jonesborough at Storybrook Farms, we first met Deborah and Jacob in Washington, D.C.!

This was our first time traveling to D.C., and it was definitely an awesome trip! We took engagement pictures right in the heart of America’s capital, seen sites and monuments we’ve only seen in books and movies, and of course made wayyyyy too many “on your left” quotes from Captain America as we walked in front of the Lincoln Memorial!

Fast forward to the days leading up to Deborah and Jacob’s wedding day, we knew it was going to be amazing. There’s something special in our hearts about micro weddings and elopements. We love the intimacy and love you can feel as the bride and groom’s closest family and friends gather to celebrate with them as God mends their hearts together.

On their wedding day, the love surrounding this awesome couple was definitely what we felt. Being surrounded by, and meeting all of Deborah and Jacob’s family was a joy. Everyone was so nice and treated us super well! Some of Deborah’s family, including her parents, even traveled all the way from Taiwan!

As we captured the excitement and joy that flowed through the atmosphere on this amazing day, we laughed and joked with Jacob and his brother, listened as both Deborah and Jacob exclaimed their love for each other in their Time Capsule video, and maybe the highlight of it all was their first look…

This was it. The moment they had been waiting for. Both of them. Seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day. Something they have dreamed of for months leading up to this. This moment.

As Deborah made her way up the beautiful path where Jacob stand waiting, her excitement only rose as she saw a doppelganger of her very own beloved cat, Stanley, keeping Jacob company as he waited. This was, of course, the very friendly farm cat who lived here.

As Jacob turned around, you could definitely feel the love and emotion they both had felt for so long explode as they made eye contact. This was it. They were getting married.

As the day went on, we celebrated with them during their ceremony, which they live streamed to all their family and friends unable to attend. Deborah’s sister sang a few songs to celebrate, the officiant threw in some clever song lyrics during their vows that we all pieced together afterwards, and then it happened. They sealed their vows with a kiss. They were officially husband and wife!

The only thing to do after such wonderful events such as these is to celebrate. And celebrate we did! We all enjoyed delicious food and listened as some of the bride and groom’s closest friends and family gave speeches. Perhaps one of the most exciting parts, though, was the abundance of Auntie Ruth’s Doughnuts! Or maybe I’m just biased…

All these events can be summed up in this, Deborah and Jacob were finally one. God has mended their two hearts together. All they have been through has lead to this. They are married.

Congratulations Deborah and Jacob! We are praying for an amazing marriage and that God will show you Himself in every step of the way!

We hope you enjoy this beautiful intimate micro wedding in Jonesborough, Tennessee.

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
