Sometimes, life gives you lemons, and you’re supposed to make lemonade. But what happens when life hands you a beautiful couple with a wedding that is only a month away, and a team full of amazing vendors? Swoon, that’s what.
I talked to Brittney very briefly one morning, but our conversation was stalled due to my morning of school drop off, and activities with the babies. I followed up with an email later in the day, but didn’t hear back from her right away. I had only spoken to her for a few minutes, but had already learned that she thought she had booked another photographer for her wedding, but had just found out that there was a miscommunication and so her photographer was no longer available. She was heartbroken and now also frantic. I could tell immediately that she was incredibly sweet, charming, and genuine. And I wanted to shoot her wedding. So I was a bit sad not to hear back from her right away. The next day my cell phone rang. It was a number that I wasn’t familiar with, but when the area code indicated Arkansas I picked up the call. It was Mike on the other end. Brittney’s fiancé. What happened next still makes my heart skip a beat. Mike and I chatted about details very briefly, but then he said… Can you just go ahead and send me the contract? I just can’t handle hearing Brittney cry for another minute. With that, a contract was sent, and he won a place in my heart… which made me see (even from over the phone) why Brittney was so in love with this man.
By the time the wedding was set to commence a month later, I felt like Ihad been a part of Brittney and Mike’s story from the beginning. They are a blessing to my life, and I can not believe that I was the one they chose to document their wedding day.
Brittney and Mike chose to get ready in separate hotels, and to only see each other when she walked up the aisle to become his wife. The day was planned perfectly by Scheme Events, and Layers of Lovely created spectacular florals to welcome the new Spring wedding season!
Navy and coral were the perfect colors for a beautiful Spring day!!
The image on the left, below, was captured by Janelle. And I gasped when I saw it.
Brittney’s entire dress was covered with soft white sequins. It sparkled with every move she made.
Retro Bakery created the perfect cake!!
The wedding was held at Springs Preserve, and it was the perfect location to host such a beautiful ceremony!
I love love love love love this photo below… so freaking much.
LED Unplugged was on hand to sparkle-up the reception with twinkling bistro lights and vintage marquee letters!
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Daple!! xo.
