So full of joy and laughter is this sweet bride! One of our absolute favorite things about her is how much she just laughs...at everything! She is so much fun to be around and her laughter is contagious. The Emerald Grande in Destin, Florida was the perfect place for her wedding. The light & the beauty of this place complimented her so well. Even in the midst of a difficult moment during the day (read on to find out more), she pressed on and continued to shine. That's how it's done, Lyssa! Way to go!
We also have a fun little announcement in the midst of this post (an announcement that AFFECTS THIS WEEKEND!!). Keep on reading! You'll see what I mean.
THE ABOVE PHOTO IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PHOTOS FROM THE DAY - NOT FOR THE PERFECT LIGHTING OR COMPOSITION, BUT FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT THIS REFLECTS WHO MY HUSBAND (AND AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY PARTNER) IS AT HIS CORE - A SERVANT! AS THE BRIDE WAS OVERHEATED & SICK, ALLEN DIGS OUT OUR HUGE REFLECTOR TO GIVE HER SOME AIR, WHICH LIGHTENED UP THE MOMENT & MADE EVEN THE BRIDE LAUGH! LOVE THIS GUY!
THE FATHER/DAUGHTER DANCES ALWAYS GET TO US. THEY ARE ALWAYS SO TENDER AND SWEET.
HERE IS THE BIG NEWS PROMISED IN THE INTRO...THE BRIDESMAID ON THE LEFT (THE MAID OF HONOR) LEFT SUCH AN IMPRESSION ON US AT THE WEDDING. SHE TOOK SUCH GREAT CARE THE BRIDE AND GAVE SO MUCH OF HERSELF. KATLYN ALSO GAVE THE SWEETEST TOAST TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM (THAT INCLUDED TEARS OF COURSE).
WELL...GUESS WHAT?? WE NOW GET TO PHOTOGRAPH HER WEDDING...THIS WEEKEND (3/19/16)!!! WE ARE SOOOOO EXCITED AND CANNOT WAIT TO CELEBRATE WITH HER AND HER GROOM, MATTHEW! SHE IS SO DESERVING OF A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING DAY, AND WE WILL DO EVERYTHING WITHIN OUR POWER TO HELP HER PULL IT OFF!
LYSSA & ADAM, MAY YOU ALWAYS BE AS JOYFUL IN YOUR MARRIAGE AS YOU WERE ON YOUR WEDDING DAY AND REMEMBER HOW MUCH YOU LOVE EACH OTHER! WE WERE SO HONORED TO BE A PART OF YOUR AMAZING DAY! THANKS FOR SHARING IT WITH US. OH, AND WE CAN'T WAIT TO HANG OUT WITH YOU AT KATLYN & MATTHEW'S WEDDING THIS WEEKEND!!
ENJOY THE JOURNEY!
