Never in my career have I witnessed a miracle like Reece & Morgan’s story. Their wedding was originally planned for November 2022, but when Reece’s health took an unexpected and catastrophic turn last year, their plans were put on hold.
After going to the doctor for something seemingly minor, Reece was admitted and spiraled quickly. Days later, his body began to shut down, and his heart stopped. The doctors revived him and prepared Morgan and his family to say their goodbyes, because he would not make it through this. After he became somewhat stable, he was told he would need organ transplants to survive. Over the next few months, his body continually improved, and not only is he alive and well, but without the transplants! If that’s not a direct miracle from our Creator, I don’t know what is!
A few months ago they didn’t know if they would have a life together here on earth, and now Morgan and Reece are MARRIED!! They chose Francis Farms in Jacksonville, Arkansas which is now one of my favorite local venues! A few things made this wedding day EXTRA special, and at the top is Abe, their fur-child! Abe got to be a huge part of the whole day and he definitely showed out! Then, during the ceremony, they surprised everyone with a special performance by their “Flower Man!” Just wait for those pictures! Ha! And then of course they had an absolute rockstar team of vendors!
Reece and Morgan, it was an honor and a privilege to be your wedding photographer, and I feel humbled just to know you! You have been through more than most couples ever have to go through in their entire lives, and your steadfast love for each other and God is inspiring. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Pasley!!!
