All things white, bright and beautiful

Joanna & Jonah Clem
March 15, 2019


After a month of texting, Jonah and I finally decided to meet up for dinner at Panera. When we unintentionally ordered the same thing – chipotle chicken avocado melt and broccoli and cheese soup – I knew there was something special about him. The rest of our Panera love story is history.


We went down to Jacksonville State University to watch a football game. I knew something was up because Jonah was very concerned with the time of the sunset and our outfits. After the game was over, we headed up to one of my favorite places in the world, Chimney Peek. He got down on one knee, with the sunset happening behind us. It was a dream come true! 


My favorite moment of our big day was when Jonah presented me a Bible with my new name engraved on the front. He wrote the sweetest note that I will cherish forever. Another sweet and unforgettable moment from that day was my first look with my Papa. He had fallen sick a few weeks before the wedding, and we had to break him out of rehab to attend our big day. It meant so much to him, me and our entire family that he was able to be there.
