After getting to know Taylor & Tori over the past year, their wedding was everything I envisioned and went over with them… and then some. No detail was out of place and everything flowed seamlessly… (Minus a missing boutonnière for the groom but don’t worry we got it before the ceremony)! This was one of those weddings where you could just feel all of the love and emotion in the air. You could feel God’s presence during their ceremony and with Tori being the pastor’s daughter, it was so special to see her married by her dad.

It was important for Tori to have her mother and Taylor’s mother in the getting ready room while she put her dress on. So while it downpoured outside, Tori got into her dress. Once we got her all buttoned up, she did a first look with her bridesmaids. Watching their excitement for her and their happiness when they saw her in her dress was already special and then she did a first look with her father. First looks get me every. Single. Time.

Tori also surprised her parents by asking if I could take a few photos of them together before the ceremony because Taylor and Tori got married on her parent’s wedding anniversary!! What a special tribute to them and their long lasting love for each other!!

Taylor’s face when he saw Tori coming down the aisle is just too sweet. They did a sand ceremony and included Tori’s son, Matthew, in their sand pouring. Once the ceremony ended they greeted all of their guests by dismissing them from their pews and doing a grand bubble exit!

We managed to get outdoor wedding party and bridal portraits with just a few sprinkles of rain and then we were off to the reception! The entire day flew by and this was truly one where I can say, it felt like a fairytale.
