Today is the last day that I’ll be able to say, “Our wedding was the last one I went to!” Wedding season officially starts today as I’m helping one of our own wedding photographers shoot a wedding this evening. I’m so excited! The next two weekends are weddings for friends and I’m beyond excited.
So, in honor of wedding season beginning, I wanted to share some of our wedding photos. So many people have been incredibly patient as the last four months have been crazy busy. There are so many amazing images! So, I think sharing them in small doses is going to be my best method :-)
Jana Candler came to my house the morning of the wedding as I was getting ready with my maid and matron of honor and my mom. Kim DeLoach went to the church to photograph Ben and the guys getting ready. The coolest part about seeing all of these images together is seeing what Ben was doing as I was getting ready!
The most handsome groom ever…!
And then, before I knew it, it was time for our First Look. I’ve talked about this before, but I can not say enough about how wonderful a First Look is. We scheduled it in and scheduled all pictures to be taken before the ceremony. When I got to the spot where I was meeting Ben, I was shaking from excitement (plus, it was FREEzing). I walked over to him, put my hand on his shoulder, and he turned around to see me for the first time. We were able to hug and kiss and talk, just the two of us (and a small entourage instead of 250 guests). And the number of portraits we were able to get… WOW! I’m only sharing ones in this post from the actual first look, but I would bet that since we had 45 minutes of “just us” time, we have at least 6 pages or so worth of album pictures!! I love it.
And I know what some of you are thinking… but walking down the aisle was still just as special. I wasn’t just tearing up from the moment… tears were POURING from my eyes as I walked down the aisle. And Ben was at the end of the aisle watching me and trying to hold himself together. The pictures of him watching me walk towards him are so precious and so genuine. The look on his face is one of the sweetest memories I’ll ever have.
