We knew going into this day that it was going to be fun. From the very first second I spoke with Haley, I knew I HAD to photograph her wedding. She was just so bubbly and full of life! And their day didn’t disappoint! Steve and Haley are two of the easiest people we’ve ever photographed. They naturally fall into each other in a way that only two people head over heels in love do. They laugh together, snuggle, and all around make life fun. I could go on for days about these two!
Their day was perfect, but it wasn’t without some surprises. At the very end of our portraits with the guys it started to sprinkle. It was only a small chance of storms, so I wasn’t too worried…and then the downpour started. After looking at the radar, Haley & Steve decided to flip flop their cocktail hour with their ceremony so they could still have that outdoor ceremony they’d always dreamed about. It actually worked out perfectly! All the guests got to mingle and no one was late! Since they were waiting to see each other until the ceremony, Haley spent that time with her girls playing games and practicing her adorable dance with her dad. Her bridesmaids did such a good job of entertaining her, and keeping her distracted while she waited out the rain! In the end, it was all perfect! The sun came out, they had a gorgeous garden ceremony, and the most dreamy portrait session ever!
Congratulations on the start of a beautiful marriage you two! We hope you are enjoying every second of your honeymoon! Enjoy your previews : )
I was in love with their invitations!6 girls, 1 mirror…it so works!Haley asked her girls to wait until she was in her gown instead of helping her get dressed. Their reactions when they were allowed back in the room were adorable!Cloudy days, make for gorgeous portraits like this…that and having a stunning bride helps too!
I loved these girls, and their dresses!
Steve’s guys were just as fun as Haley’s girls. We didn’t get to spend a ton of time with them, since we got rained out, but the little bit we did was awesome!
Sweet moments pre-ceremony getting prayed over.Love that they took communion together during their ceremony. It was a beautiful, quite moment between them!I was one happy photographer when the sun came out for their portraits!And Haley thinks she doesn’t so serious well…HA! Look at that!I have to stop here and thank these two for walking through red clay in wedding attire to get to this field. It was so worth it though!
So many yummy cakes!And I’ve never seen so many good dancers on the floor!!!!Haley and Steve wanted a private last dance of the night. Love how sweet and intimate that was!
Congrats again you two!!!
