I met Jake & Arianna for the first time just a few weeks ago, when we met up for their engagement session.
Since that day, I have gathered the following facts and inspirations from this pair....
#1 - their love for their Creator is their driving force, and it will stir in you something you have never felt before
#2 - their love story should be translated into a romantic comedy -- STAT.
#3 - their chemistry is otherworldly, and I thought my camera was going to catch fire from the sparks flying everywhere
#4 - any bride that allows my baby to stare in awe at her bouquet and pick flowers right out of it is A-OK in my book
#5 - Jake's expression when he saw Arianna for the first time, walking down that aisle, had me in stitches -- never before have I seen a man go into shock and not be able to move a muscle (not even in his face).
#6 - I hope we get to stay friends forever and ever, amen.
I cannot tell you how important it is to have a REALLY GOOD first wedding of the year.
That first wedding is what catapults you into a full season of documenting the BEST DAY of people's lives.
Robert & Brianna's wedding was colorful, sun-soaked, and went flawlessly.
I love witnessing all the little details of a couple's wedding day - the small things that make that day THEIRS and no one else's. One of my favorite pieces from this day was the story behind the bride's shoes: Bri's grandmother unexpectedly passed away this year, but not before she had a chance to pick out a pair of glittery pink sandals to wear to the wedding. Those sandals still made it to the wedding, only on Bri's feet instead. What a sweet and memorable way to keep your grandmother close on your wedding.
I think it's safe to say my 2016 is going to be AMAZING.
