These two lucked out with the only non-rainy day in the entire month of May! I loved Meg’s Dad’s reaction when he first saw her. It wasn’t planned at all, he just found her right after she got dressed and had the sweetest reaction. Their ceremony was filled with lots of laughter as well. Meg surprised everyone at the reception with a dress change to allow for more dancing! It’s very obvious how sweetly Thomas makes Meg feel safe, and how in love they are.
David met Emily the first week of their freshman year. They soon found out that they shared a political science class and he just so happened to save a left handed seat for her every day. They reunited at a tailgate the following fall and continued to grow fond of one another. Emily’s sister said that one evening they were all hanging out and “after a lot of chocolate milk…(right dad?) David said he would one day make her his wife.” And he did at the beautiful Four Seasons Las Colinas.
I am so thankful to share the day with Emily and David. I got to know their families a little better and they are truly top notch families. You could feel the love they all share for one another. When did I really know Emily was the perfect bride for me to capture? Obviously in our first meeting, but the deal was sealed when her and all her bridesmaids danced their hearts out to *Nsync at the reception with as much enthusiasm as I did when I went to their no strings attached world tour. #nsync4life
Other than that I just loved and appreciated Emily and David’s perspective on their wedding day. They rolled with the punches when the wedding got moved indoor last minute because of rain, and maintained a happy outlook throughout the day. When I asked them what they were most excited about when it came to their wedding day, they said they were most excited to be in the same room and share the night with all of their most loved and favorite people.
When Amy called me to inquire about wedding photography for her courthouse wedding, I couldn’t get to the phone right away, but called her right back. When I called her back, I said “Hi Amy! Did I catch you at a good time?” She said “Yes, I’m just teaching 5th period English right now. Say Hi everybody!” And from her middle school English class I heard an enthusiastic “HHIIII!!!!!” It made my day, and gave me a perma-grin. She said “I told my students you’d be calling, and it was important and I had to take the call…they’re working on assignments right now.” It was a great start to getting to know Amy and Chris.
I loved everything about Amy and Chris’s courthouse wedding. I love it because when it boils down to it, making the commitment and love you share official is what really matters, which is exactly what was highlighted on their wedding day. Everyone who they love the most was able to be there, and it was such a great afternoon. It was extra special having their kids there to witness their union. The cherry on top of the day was going back to the restaurant where they had their first date and re-create a photo taken on their first date. Talk about full circle am I right!?
