Alright, are you seated for this? I couldn’t narrow the sneak peek down anymore than this and there are a ton of photos in this post. Believe it not, this is just the beginning. I guess that’s what happens when you have 10 hours with a bridal party of 24 and a really fun bride and groom. Tons of great photos are bound to be the outcome.
There are so many things I loved about Courtney and Taylor’s wedding day, but I’ll begin with some of the details. Again, with those beautiful shoes! Courtney’s bouquet by Allison Welch at The Elegant Petal was amazing and it weighed a ton!
Courtney’s gift to her bridesmaid’s were a pair of gold glittery Tom’s. They were so cute and looked great with their purple dresses!
The next photo of one of Courtney’s bridesmaids watching her get her dress laced up may be my favorite of the WHOLE day.
Courtney and Taylor did a first look and I’m SO glad they did. We got all their portrait done before the ceremony and it gave them a chance to exchange their gifts to each other, which were pretty fabulous by the way.
If you want to know what Taylor’s gift was from Courtney you’ll have to ask him. I think he was PRETTY HAPPY about it.
This wedding was one I have especially been looking forward to because of the military aspect of it. Taylor is a pilot in the Navy and most of the groomsmen and ushers were also in either the Navy or Marines. Since, my brother is in the Navy and Saylor is a former Marine this was a special wedding for us to shoot. I have to admit there is just something about the uniforms that makes this photo even better! This group was so fun and they are really like one big family. It was awesome to see just how happy and supportive of the bride and groom they were.
The groom and his sisters and the bride and her sister. Love sibling photos!
Another favorite (from the ceremony).
Then we snuck out before the reception and got a few more of the bride and groom right as the sun was setting.
The groom’s parents watching their first dance.
Okay, so you know those movies you watch over and over and over again. Well, Top Gun was one of those movies for me. My favorite part was when they sang “You’ve lost that loving feeling.” That’s EVERYONE’s favorite part. Well, the guys serenaded Courtney with the same song at the reception. It was awesome!
P.S. Courtney’s sister Andi caught the bouquet. wink. wink.
Dear future brides, two words: GIANT SPARKLERS. Thanks.
And they lived happily ever after……………….
Congratulations to you both. Love you guys!
