The Clearing Wedding

Toria & Jordan

June 2022

Toria and Jordan are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet. They are both extremely thoughtful and their best traits are brought out when they are with each other. In a marriage, love and support is essential from family and friends and these two have an incredible support system surrounding them. All of the love, joy, excitement, and care for Toria and Jordan was abundantly evident throughout the whole day at The Clearing wedding!

The Clearing Wedding

To start the day, Toria and all of her wonderful sisters welcomed me into their getting ready space where they all did their own hair! They are such a talented family in so many ways – the arbor for their ceremony and the candle holder decorations at the reception were made by Toria’s brother! Both Toria and Jordan’s families came together to make so many aspects of their day so special and it was amazing to see! After getting ready, it was time for the first look with Toria and Jordan, which they chose to do down by the Mississippi River. Right now, the river is really high, so there is some flooding which resulted in some epic reflection images under the bridge! I’m absolutely in love with them and they will be favorites of mine forever!

For their ceremony, there were so many meaningful pieces including singing a song all together, their vows, and the wonderful message from their officiant. As the evening flowed into their reception, the speeches were full of emotion. Jordan’s parents were unable to travel up from South Africa to attend the wedding, so his brother read a note from his parents that was so sweet! All of the speeches were so great as is evidence by the photos – there was laughing, crying, and so much love!

The sun popped out just for these two at the end of their night just perfectly!! It was such a wonderful way to end their gorgeous day that was filled with fun and laughter all day long! Toria and Jordan, I’m so happy for you two and so grateful to have been a part of your day! I hope you are having a great start to your honeymoon!! 🤍⁠
