Abbie & Isaac started their wedding day getting ready with their family and friends. Both suites were full of laughter as everyone enjoyed this calm start to the day. Abbie had thought one of her 3 bridesmaids weren’t going to be able to attend, but while finishing her hair, she got the wonderful news that magic had happened. While running a little late, her friend would be able to arrive just in time! After Isaac and Abbie finished getting ready, we snuck off to the chapel where they could share their first look and exchange letters. This sweet moment was just the beginning of a beautiful day.
They had decided that they didn’t want a cocktail hour. They wanted to be able to go straight from their ceremony into mingling with their guests. So after the first look it was time to get some portraits done. We laughed and smiled our way thru their portraits. We were just finishing up portraits with their wedding party, when Abbie’s 3rd bridesmaid pulled up, in her dress and ready to go. She literally walked out of her car and straight into a portrait without complaining for a second! You could tell that their friends just wanted to be there to celebrate the happy couple! After finishing those final few photos with the wedding party it was time for family portraits. Sometimes this can be one of the hardest parts of the whole day but everyone was in high spirits and we knocked out these important photos with ease.
The ceremony was up next and it was absolutely perfect. Abbie’s brother officiated and told their story with so much love. I found myself tearing up multiple times. I can imagine that it was even more emotional for all of their family & friends who have watched them grow together as a couple. After sharing their story, the couple exchanged their vows, rings, and sealed it with a kiss!
Then it was the time they had been waiting for! From the moment we met at their engagement session, Abbie & Isaac talked about their dream wedding day. They wanted a relaxing & low-key day surrounded by all of their favorite people and filled with love. They wanted pizza and yard games. Their reception wasn’t going to be about dancing. They wanted the patio & courtyard at the venue filled with their loved ones, playing games and building memories – just as they had built their relationship over game nights. The evening was everything they had dreamed of. We may have headed inside briefly for dinner and speeches, but shortly everyone headed right back outside. The weather could not have been more perfect for the day they dreamed of. Guests enjoyed bouncing between the mobile bar and the many games scattered outside. They were playing all night right down until the very end when we did a quick run thru some sparklers. It was just perfect!!
Abbie & Isaac, Thank You so much for choosing to share your day with us. Spending the day with you and your favorite people was absolutely amazing. I am so blessed to know you both! Congratulations again and Best Wishes in beginning this next chapter of your story.
Lots of Love,
