Dallas was referred to me by a mutual friend through my church to shoot her rustic, but elegant wedding at Oak Hollow in Arcadia, Florida. We chatted multiple times & when she was finally ready to book, it seemed like the wedding day was fast approaching. We scheduled a dinner date with me third wheeling alongside her & David. That evening was filled with wedding talk & getting to know each other. They told me all about their sweet love story!
Turns out, on their wedding date, March 2nd, her & David hadn’t even been together for a year! I asked David to tell me about how he knew. He said that from the moment he met her, he just felt it. He knew it was right from the very beginning. Basically, he told me, if I know it’s right, why wait?! I mean, c’mon people, how stinkin’ sweet is that! Watching David talk to me about his fiancé reminded me why I love this career so much. Seeing the passionate love between an engaged or newly married couple makes my heart so happy & makes me feel so lucky to do what I do!
I was more than ready! Even though they booked only about a month out from their date, it felt like we had all been waiting on this day for so long! From the moment I pulled up the venue that afternoon, to late that night when I left, everything was perfect. Every single detail that Dallas carefully planned came together seamlessly & their day was beautiful. Hair & Makeup turned out gorgeous. The groomsmen and bridesmaids had the best time. Their first touch had me crying (legit #allthefeels). Their ceremony was the sweetest. Both families were so kind & excited. The reception was just as they envisioned. Seriously, it was all a dream!
David & Dallas, I feel like I’ve already expressed this to you a million times now, but seriously, I am so blessed. I am so blessed & thankful that you two trusted me to capture the most special day of your life. You two seriously feel like good friends now rather than clients & I cannot wait to see your love & marriage blossom over the years.
