Of course there are a million things you could say about a wedding day. Every story is different, every couple is their own special variant of the ‘perfect couple’. But today, I’m here to tell you about the perfect wedding day for Courtney and Andrew. Planning the perfect wedding begins long before the bride walks down the aisle, and creating opportunities for magical moments to happen beforehand helps me capture all the emotion, joy and love that comes together in one day.
This day was planned perfectly, and as a result, I was able to get some beautiful images that really excite me! After an intimate first look, followed by a gorgeous sunlit ceremony, Courtney and Andrew hugged each other tightly. During their sunset photos following the ceremony, they were full of giggles, and I was swept away in the simple beauty of love. The party continued on inside, where they danced the night away at a energetic reception!
Being in the wedding industry, I get to work with some of the best in the business. The vendors that truly go above and beyond for their clients are the ones who look forward to every wedding like it’s their own. And this perfect wedding day, designed by Everson Events, was no exception.
From the first time I set foot on this property, it was clear that they had thought of every single detail and spared no expense in their quest to create a elegant, personalized oasis. Every vendor pulled out all the stops. Not a single detail was overlooked — from hair and makeup, to flowers and decor. This simple black/white color palette let all of the design skills shine through and let’s just say I was giddy with excitement to photograph it!
Courtney and Andrew, when two people share a love as pure and deep as yours it’s no wonder how you guys make it look so effortless. I mean, duh – you two were made for each other, it’s no surprise this was the easiest part! The day was just so perfect and seamless that for me to even try to pick my favorites to post is like picking between gooey chocolate chip cookies or rich fudgy brownies…I mean, what is one supposed to do?!
