Krystal + Zak | Private Chandler Wedding


{posted by Kimberly Jarman  : Photography by Kimberly Jarman and Mary Jordan}

I met Krystal and Zak a few days before their wedding at their Rehearsal dinner. I met the entire family and all their friends and fell in love with them all instantly. I had first met with Krystal’s mom a few months earlier and she had been my primary contact through the entire wedding planning process, so it was really great to meet the entire family!

Krystal is a teacher and Zak is a firefighter and they are both completely 100% in love with each other and God. Wow, what an amazing ceremony they had. I cried during the whole thing because it was so emotional and God driven!! I love stuff like that.

The ceremony and reception were at their families houses. The ceremony at her brother’s gorgeous house and the reception at her parents gorgeous house, both just 2 houses apart from each other. I  always wonder and get a little nervous what a wedding is going to be like when it’s at a private residence, because you aren’t sure what you are going to have to work with for pictures; however, both of these houses make me so happy and were gorgeous!!

We had such a great time and I am so in love with these pictures. Thank you to Krystal and Zak for allowing me to be a part of such a gorgeous day!!!

Here are a few of our favorites pictures taken by both Kimberly Jarman and Mary Jordan.

These are some of my favorites!


After the first look we headed over to a neighbors house. I had seen so much potential in their backyard that I knocked on the door and asked if we could use their yard for pictures.. they were thrilled and we shot a ton of the pictures in their backyard!

Krystal’s dad didn’t get emotional until it was all over and then there was a ton of crying and hugging!! Love these 2 shots!


I love that there was an old firetruck parked outside the house. So fun!!!


Details of the reception! They had a great candy bar and Ladmo bags!! Zak’s grandpa is Ladmo, from Wallace and Ladmo, so how perfect was this!
