The one constant throughout any wedding day ever is that there’s always something that might not go as planned. Whether falling behind on the timeline, spilling a drink on a suit, rain, forgetting the rings, the list could go on. I love that my couples put full trust in me to handle any little road bump that might come up. I always budget extra time into the getting ready portion of the timeline so that if hair and makeup takes longer or buttoning up the dress is hard, there’s never a need to panic. Throughout the whole day, Brooke and Kyle just had their eyes on the prize- marriage and saying “I Do” at Cross Keys Barn in front of their closest friends and family.

 

Nothing could phase these two. The energy and happiness was contagious throughout the whole day! You always hear growing up, “surround yourself with good people.” This is exactly what these two have done. Their wedding party knew how to party and knew had to shower Brooke and Kyle with love! Normally the big group photo of the wedding party happens right after the ceremony but I told them that the lighting of the mountain behind Cross Keys Barn would be better before sunset if they wanted to sneak out during dinner before toasts started. I felt bad quickly sneaking them out during dinner but everyone was totally on board to do whatever it takes to get the best photos. These are my kind of people 👏

 

Highlights of the day included an emotional first look with the bridesmaid (I cried), Louie being the cutest ring bearer and with a little help this pupper walked down the aisle basically perfectly, driving around in a golf cart for AMAZING portraits, and coordinated introductions dances that set the tone for the rest of the reception.

 

I can’t wait to share these images and allow you to get to know this incredible couple!
