Texas Wedding by Jen Dillender


Jillian and Hayden met in high school and began to get to know each other during Chemistry class study dates. In the words of Jillian, "There was more chemistry than just molecules during these study sessions, and that is how our relationship began!"

Their beautiful waterfront wedding took place in Tyler, Texas. When we asked Jillian and Hayden what their favorite memory from their wedding was they said, "At the end of the ceremony, our officiant told us to turn around and look into the crowd before we walked back down the aisle. That was a special time to see all these people who gathered to celebrate our lives together, and being able to soak that moment in was a great memory."

I love that thoughtful detail. During the ceremony it seems you only have eyes for each other (as it should be!) but taking a moment to look at all of your family and friends who love you and will be supporting your marriage is such a sweet gesture. 

Jillian and Hayden's sweet love for each other is so evident in their wedding photos. Jillian told us, "As young as we were when we started dating, I could always tell there was something different about Hayden. His kind heart and loyalty were so evident even as teenagers, but even more, he radiated Jesus in everything he did, something hard to come by in high school."  Hayden and Jillian's relationship has a strong foundation and that was reflected on their wedding day. Their thoughtful wedding details centered around their faith and full of joy and blissful happiness created the perfect environment to celebrate their love and marriage. I'm sure this was a wedding that every guest was honored to attend!
