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!
The tears were bound to come. So many people from two different worlds had watched Kayla and Nick grow up into two of the most amazingly wonderful and godly people. And when God is at work, it’s impossible to hold the tears back!
Hurricane Matthew was coming across the coast last weekend and we weren’t sure just how it was going to affect Kayla and Nick’s wedding in the upstate of South Carolina, but everyone was game for anything. Because at the end of the day, these two were going to be husband and wife! And you know what? We had about 20 seconds of mist the day of their wedding, beautifully overcast skies before the ceremony and then, as family was gathering for photos before the reception, the sun broke through the clouds for a gorgeous evening filled with dancing and dining!
And those tears? They were all happy ones, trust me. I shed quite a few myself… and I’d like to blame it on this pregnancy, but since I bawled like a baby when Nick proposed to Kayla at the end of last year, I can’t blame the tears on the baby this time :-) And now I’m tearing up again just thinking about their wedding day! These two chose to see each other before the ceremony and when you see the photos from their First Look, you may shed a tear too. They were both so happy that this day was here, that God was bringing them together as one and they couldn’t hold back their emotions either.
But it didn’t take long for those tears of joy to turn into laughter! Kayla and Nick, you guys are amazing and I loved every minute of your day. I hope you enjoy reliving it through these photos and that your first week as husband and wife is more than you could have imagined!
Their wedding was definitely a labor of love by their families – and it was beautiful!
Nick’s dad made this box for their wedding bands and for the ring bearer to carry them down the aisle. Isn’t it amazing??
Gah! I love these!
And the florals? Kayla’s grandmother did all of them!!
Daddy/Daughter First Looks always get me too…
All of these fall colors totally had my heart! So gorgeous, you guys!
Their ceremony was at the Dutch Barn in Greer and again, their families set everything up the week before. Isn’t it beautiful??
Oh my heavens, I love this black and white one!
No, Nick wasn’t feeding Kayla one of the flowers :-) Kayla prefers Sweedish fish over cake so she took a bite of that while he tasted the cake!
I was hoping ALL week long that the sun would peek out for just a little bit during golden hour so we could get some beautiful portraits of these two… and oh my goodness was it golden!! I could have stayed out there for hours!
Many thanks to the friends, family and vendors who made Kayla and Nick’s wedding so gorgeous!
