I met Zane and Brittany last October for a fall portrait session. It was easy to see Zane and Brittany were in love. I awaited the day I heard they were engaged and secretly hoped Brittany would contact me. I sent her a congratulations message and it wasn't long before we were discussing wedding plans and meeting up to talk details. I asked her to right a little bit about their love story and share how they met. This is the sweetest testament to Gods plan for us. Sometimes it just takes some time... I fee incredibly honored they trusted me to capture their big day , broken leg and all! They were the most understanding and trusting couple! Thank you guys for a wonderful day on the farm!!

From Brittany + Zane:
We met 10 years ago while we both worked at Kroger. I had just started and was bent down stocking shelves when Zane walked by with a co-worker. When he saw me, he asked the coworker who I was and stated his interest in me. I was a single mom of a one-year-old, not looking for a relationship. Instead, we became best friends. He had a key to my apartment and would come visit me daily to share about his day and support me in mine. Then one day, he showed up to my apartment and said he was moving back to Las Vegas that day. We lost contact and life happened. I married and had another son. Zane missed Springfield and moved back. Then 9 years later on one fateful day in October, my house was struck by lightning, and I needed Comcast to come install their services. I was going through a divorce and raising two boys on my own. A rude technician showed up and when I heard someone else pull up in the driveway, I ran outside hoping for someone who was more helpful. It was Zane.
See Zane knew where my house was located, and when he heard the rude technician was on my road, he came to the rescue hoping it was me. We reminisced and shared laughs while he worked. On his way out the door, he said he would call me later. I laughed and reminded him he didn’t have my phone number. He put it in his phone and texted me before making it to the stop sign. We made plans to go to a haunted house that weekend, each of us not knowing if it was a “date”. When I climbed into his lifted truck, it didn’t take long for us to both realize this would be forever. It was a God thing.
I can't very well write a blog about this wedding with out mentioning three very important people who helped me capture this coupled beautiful day. Jamie Marie Photography was a gem! Not only did she spend the whole day being my hands and feet , she spent another afternoon with this gorgeous bride filling in foe me and shooting her bridals when I broke my leg and was laid up. Hope Welch , my mom, is an outstanding lady and never batted an eye when I needed extra hands and she did an amazing job getting all those great detail shots. Lastly , my husband who was so patient and encouraging getting me to and from all the photo spots. He helped me do what I love! Instead of telling me I couldn't do it , he helped make it happen. I feel like this is a true testament to love and marriage. For better or worse. Sickness and Health. Thanks for allowing that to shine through on your wedding day , Brittany + Zane!!
Congratulations to The Wintson's!!
