I'm a lover of love who is addicted to Starbucks and goes through weekly phases of favorite foods. I'm a wifey to a firefighter and a dogmom to a grumpy Whippet. I love having lunch dates and dream of traveling the world.
Sunday was one amazing day! I’m so happy I got to spend it with Stephen and Addalyn! I knew their day would be so much fun after doing their engagement session and getting to meet some of Addalyn’s family!
I was so happy that the girls got ready at Addalyn’s house. It’s a gorgeous place with a lot of natural light and a great piece of property. Since Stephen and Addalyn planned a first look, we just did all of the portraits outside of the house and it worked out perfectly!
After they saw each other for the first time, Stephen and Addalyn did something I thought was so sweet. They read each other their vows. It was so much more intimate and personal than reading written vows to each other in front of a huge crowd of people. It was something they were able to share in private with each other and take in the commitment they were making to each other.
We had so much with bridal party portraits and some family portraits, and then it was off to the ceremony! Stephen and Addalyn made it official and then celebrated with a bubble exit!
The rest of the night was spent in a gorgeous barn venue with great food, lots of laughs, and lots of dancing. The only thing that would have made this day more perfect is if we would have gotten a spectacular golden hour! But we had some amazing views and wildflowers, so I’ll take it!!
Stephen and Addalyn, thank you both so much for having Nicole and I with you! We loved being there and hope you have such an amazing time on the beach!
And a huge thank you to all of the vendors who worked so hard to make this day amazing!
