I am so glad you're here! This is my little corner where I get to share some of my most favorite images from engagements, weddings, births, my travels and my own little family from time to time. Hang out, look around, and please reach out to say hello!
This time last week, the forecast for Ceci & Ethan’s wedding day was 70% chance of rain and thunderstorms. That percentage decreased a little as the week went on, but by Saturday, the weather was rainy and dreary. But that didn’t keep any of us from praying and hoping it would all be gone by the next day! And you know what? God must have heard the cries of all 200+ that were at the wedding because the day was beautiful! Not only that, but it felt more like a wedding in mid-May than late July. It was PERFECT!
Ceci and Ethan’s goal for their wedding day was for God’s name to be glorified as they became husband and wife in front of their family and friends. And the whole day was exactly that. From the personal message from the minister to the amazingly sweet and sincere toasts at the reception, this wedding day was all about Him. And the joy that He gave this amazing couple radiated through everyone all day long! Ceci and Ethan were all smiles no matter what was happening, the bridesmaids were full of laughter, and the groomsmen were as fun and goofy as you’d expect them to be.
Tears of happiness fell throughout the day and hugs, handshakes, and pats on the back were in abundance. Ceci’s side of the family is from Miami and Latin America so almost immediately after meeting a family member, they were hugging and kissing our cheeks as if we were long lost cousins! The best part though, is that Ethan’s side of the family was just as warm and loving! And man, did they ALL know how to make use of the dance floor! From the time the music started, they didn’t stop dancing until Ceci and Ethan left!
You guys… from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Thank you for letting us be a part of your lives and for the honor of capturing your first day as husband and wife. I hope you’re having a blast in the British Virgin Islands and soaking up some extra sun for me! Lots of love!
Her Paloma Blanca dress was to die for… and while I swooned over Pam’s floral creations, it all really came together when I saw them with the bridesmaid’s dresses!
You know you’ve found the right clients when they trust you with anything… including zipping up her dress outside!
I’m forever thankful for Ben hanging out with the guys as they get ready… especially when I find images like these two. Love them.
Girls – y’all are gorgeous!
See what I mean about the flowers?!?!
Another thing I’m loving this year are the dark grey suits. Looking good, guys!
And you know how this southern girl feels about bowties! Love them!
Jackson, the ring bearer and the groom’s younger brother, was a show stealer for sure!
Ceci and Ethan opted to not see each other before the ceremony, but they wanted to exchange notes and pray together before walking down the aisle.
It was such a sweet and intimate moment… and I really don’t think they remembered we were even there.
Oh my goodness… I seriously love these two!
The next two are pretty similar but I was SO EXCITED that I was in the right spot for the dip at the end of their first dance!!
I’m NEVER in the right spot for the dip at the end of a first dance!! So I just had to share them both!
I don’t think Ceci was the only one in tears as she danced with her grandpa…
I normally don’t post this many cake cutting photos, but if you know these two, it’s just SO them. I love it!
One of my favorite parts of the night is taking a break with the couple for a handful of night photos… it gives them a few more minutes to soak in the day… together.
So thankful for everyone that made this day as wonderful as it was!
