“I am feeling a bit awkward at the moment”. Dain said as I got him in place for the first look and gave him a short bit in instruction. “So I stand here?” I replied “Yes, your beautiful bride is on her way”. As I saw Aubrey walk out of the double doors and make her way to tap Dain on the shoulder, I could see that Dain’s smile got bigger and bigger…it made it tough for me not to smile right along with him. That brief moment of feeling a bit awkward is understandable. He has a camera pointed at him while anticipating seeing his bride for the first time and that can feel a bit intimidating, but boy does that fade quickly and the emotions that follow are really pretty awesome. Dain stepped back and took a look at Aubrey and said “WOW!” There is no better response than that!
Going back to the start of the day, I was in the bridal suite with the bridesmaids and just had to ask if they had planned their getting ready outfits because they all looked great. Several girls laughed and they all said “No..that’s what is funny about it. We just all ended up wearing the exact same thing!” One of the girls said “I didn’t get the memo”. LOL!!! Yep, this was a picture perfect moment. Speaking of picture perfect, the fall colors outside were on fire and simply gorgeous. Since we did the first look we were able to take advantage of these beautiful colors in a few different locations. So well worth it!
Everything about Aubrey & Dain’s wedding day was so much fun and filled with such great energy. The entire reception was filled with dancing and laughing and I could tell they were surrounded by many that are excited to see them start their journey together. I wish you both so much happiness. Thank you for having me capture such an important day in your lives…it’s an honor. And a BIG thank you to Katie Turner for all your hard work, creativity and laughs.
Thank you for stopping by!
