From the moment we sat down with Cyndee and Karl over coffee, we were captivated by their story and in love with how much they were in love. As they cuddled up together in that coffee shop on a cool January morning and told us their love story, we knew we were witnessing something special, something inspirational, something that would take people’s breaths away and fill them back up with hope, the kind that only comes around every so often, when you see someone, something, or, in this case, some couple, that absolutely shines and stands out for all the right reasons. Cyndee and Karl are as crazy about each other as two high school sweethearts. They’re playful and light-hearted. Often silly, rarely serious, and almost always affectionate. They’re devoted to their faith, committed to each other, and intentional about making sure their family and friends know just how important they are.

Cyndee and Karl, in the short time we’ve known you, you’ve inspired us to slow down and soak in more tender moments in each other’s arms, to just be, and to be content. Thank you for who you are and what your relationship does for everyone who gets to hear you talk about each other or see you together in person, because it reminds us all that, truly, the greatest of all things is love…

Here’s a little look at Karl and Cyndee’s Valentine’s weekend wedding!

Karl rocked his very own tuxedo on the wedding day, but spiced it up with a pop of red that would’ve made James Bond jealous.

Cyndee was beaming all day and looked absolutely radiant from head to toe.

Their first look was the sweetest! Have you EVER seen a groom so happy to see his bride!?

There’s NOTHING like seeing a man’s reaction when his bride walks down the aisle to join him at the altar. Karl’s face in this image says it all!

The ceremony was sweet, sentimental, and scripture-filled, but it also had loads of laughs throughout!

Cyndee’s mom was a DOLL during the ceremony! We couldn’t keep our lenses off her! She’s so proud of her little girl in every way, and it showed all over her sweet face.

If you remember Cyndee and Karl’s engagement story, you know that See’s Candies is very special to them, so they decided to treat all of their guests to white chocolate hearts as party favors. YUM!

The Best Man’s toast was more of an affectionate roast. Karl was the target and Cyndee clearly didn’t mind hearing a few stories and jokes about her new husband!

The rest of the night was a huge celebration. The dance floor was hopping’ and the energy was tangible. It was the perfect way to end a perfect day.
