Congratulations to Jake and Cora on their wedding! Mr. and Mrs. Gleason married in front of family and friends on October 7, 2023 at Highway 36 Church of Christ in Abilene, TX. Their additional celebrations were at The Grove at Denton Valley!
This wedding meant the world to me. It was incredibly special because of the families involved. The bride, Cora Kate, and her family are dear to our hearts. I have literally known Cora Kate her entire life! My husband and I grew up in the church and when we were married, Cora was our flower girl at 4 years old! Then, as time went on, I babysat her and her little brother, so I’ve watched her grow up and fall in love with the best man. The fact that she asked me to capture this sweet moment in their lives, is beyond an honor. It means the world to me, and I have cried so many tears of joy for this beautiful union!
Jake and Cora’s love story began on the same county road, in the same little town, and the same public school district, but only different years. They lived miles apart on different ranches, but they had no idea that they would one day fall in love and get to spend the rest of their lives together!
Cora shared the story and expressed that she had a major crush on Jake from the very beginning! He was that tall, dark, and handsome basketball and baseball star! She smiled as she explained that that 8th grade crush literally became a reality years later when he asked her on their first date! One date led to another which then led to the proposal!
Jake proposed in the most special way at our home church while she was preparing for a Sunday school class she was teaching. He brought his family in and got down on one knee for all to witness! His nephew and wingman, Ace, helped to make the proposal perfect! And she said YES!
From that moment on, they’ve had great adventures and beautiful glimpses of their future! Cora said that life is better with Jacob Wayne by her side!
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Gleason! May your life be filled with many blessings! Thank you for trusting me to capture these beautiful moments!
