The day started off with some pretty solid rain in the morning... I packed my car with some cute rain boots and umbrellas in case it was going to be that kind of wedding day; but God graciously tapered the rain off and brought out his beautiful sunshine. In fact, the sun broke through the clouds just as the ceremony was beginning-- Shae was walking down the stone steps on her father's arm and towards the love of her life. It was so very special and beautiful.
I first really got to know Rene & Shae during their engagement session. As we strolled along and chatted with each other I knew we were going to hit it off just fine. And they were most definitely the same wonderful, caring, and joyful people on their wedding day. I was also blessed to rub elbows with Shae's family again- I photographed her sister's wedding two years ago and it was just so fun seeing everybody again! I have the very best job in the world and I truly do love each and every one of my beautiful clients. Lance and I left this wedding with our hearts so very full and feeling blessed to do a job that makes us feel fulfilled. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from the day!
Rene & Shae- Lance and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for welcoming us into your gorgeous wedding day. It was truly our honor to be a small part of it all! xo
Shae had a heart-shaped piece of one of her dad's old work shirts sewed into her dress... so sweet!
These girls were just so lovely in every way!
I love this sweet moment that Lance caught-
Ah! You guys were just killing it!
I just had to get a couple more of Shae in this beautiful light!! You're absolutely gorgeous, Shae!!
I can't even begin to express how magnificent this dessert table was... visually and flavorfully! Such a thing of beauty-- And the cake was completely adorable!
