So, this happened! It was truly one of my favorite parts of this wedding day! Sarah really wanted her daddy to see her in her wedding dress in private and share a moment or two with her mom before all the wedding day chaos started. I love how beautiful Sarah looks coming through the doors of The Barn at Bridlewood in Madison, MS. Better yet, take a look at her dad as he sees his baby girl all dressed up, ready to marry the man of her dreams! These are the moments I love about my job!
But hey! I’m getting ahead of myself! I want you to see Sarah’s dress and all her wedding day details as I saw them. Sarah’s such a tiny lil thang. We tried to take a shot of her dress on the custom hanger, but her new name “Warren” would not show because her dress was so narrow! Never had that happen 😉 I had to lay the dress and the hanger on the bed together just so I could “get the shot” for Sarah’s memories. I really try to do my very best for my brides. I put my self in their place, knowing they probably won’t remember a huge part of their wedding day. Thank goodness for photos, right!?!?!
Sarah had “the best” bridesmaids ever! They were there at every turn to help Sarah or myself all day! Thank you, thank you, thank you! They really were a fun bunch of ladies! Sarah, you are extremely blessed to have such a great network of family and friends.
By the way, take a look at Sara’s “Kate Spade” Keds! To die for! One of my many favorites of the day was that Sarah carried her grandparent’s rings on her bridal bouquet and she wore the pearl ring her parents gave her as a senior. And let’s not forget all the sparkle! When bridesmaids dresses are this gorgeous, I use them for the background of the ring shots and everything else! Love those dresses! Take a look!
We even did a mini 1st look for Sarah’s mom. Good times!
Sarah, you looked incredible! I loved the light were we able to use to really showcase how gorgeous you were. From the dress to hair and makeup, you looked beautiful!
Now it’s time to say a word or two about Zach;) From the moment he arrived at the Barn, Zach hugged me and was just the best! Anything I asked of him, he was ready with a smile! You can’t ask any more than that! Navy looks good on Zach, don’t ya think?!?!
Even though it was a wee bit warm, we had a great time with Sarah and Zach’s family and bridal party.
I just adore all this cuteness! One day this sweet little one will look back on these photos and hopefully smile as she walks down the aisle in these shoes! Sniff…
Sweet Sarah running around giving out hugs and kisses!
While everyone was taking a minute to rest and relax before the ceremony, I took a minute and got these shots of the cakes, food tables and details that everyone works so hard to make the ceremony and reception a success!
This wedding was simply stunning. As Sarah and Zach said their vows, the timing was perfect for the beautiful golden light to wrap around everyone.
I loved the look on Zach’s face as Sarah and her dad walked down the aisle. His dad patted him on the back…..precious moments!
Oh, the sand ceremony! You had to be there…..good job you two!
Looks of pure joy!
Two great families joined together!
Bride and Groom Time! Yay! My fav!
Since I met Sarah and Zach last fall for their engagement session, they already knew how I liked to work with my couples. We did these in record time. A great reason for engagement sessions, if you’re wondering why. You get to know your photographer and build a trust, so, on the wedding day, you’re much more comfortable than you would be with a stranger you just met 5 minutes ago. Just my 2 cents, ha!
These two are perfect!
It’s time for some dancing! Let the party begin!
My. All. Time. Favorite. Shot. Period. I love everything about this! Just look at this stunning bride and groom in a beautifully lit reception venue with all their loved ones surrounding them. A beautiful moment for sure.
These folks know how to have a good time. I love it!
Sarah and Zach, it was an honor to document your wedding day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to a part! Blessings on you and your marriage!
