I am so excited to finally share this blog post with the world because it’s highlighting my favorite wedding photos & our wedding video from our special spring day back in March.
Adson & I feel so blessed to have been able to have our wedding day before the world went crazy due to COVID-19. Literally the day we got back from our “minimoon” at the Margaritaville Resort in Orlando, the government was suggesting no more large group gatherings, meaning our wedding of 350 people definitely wouldn’t have happened! We know God was on our side the entire time & we’ll never forget how blessed we were in this situtation!
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, every single detail. We were blessed with the most amazing spring day, with the weather in the high 60’s, it was so gorgeous! We spent the entire day before working with our incredible rental company, Premiere Parties, transforming our venue, the Hardee County Civic Center, into our dream space. My whole life I’ve grown up being creative & my mom is the best at seeing a vision & making it reality, so planning & actually decorating our wedding day exactly the way we planned it was so fun!
The girls spent the morning at the Madison Salon & Spa getting pampered & beautiful! The guys hung out together at my parent’s home until our first look. Rachel Laxton Photography captured every moment of our wedding day from start to finish so perfectly & felt like our best friend by the end of the day! Isaac Leimeister also created the most amazing wedding video for us that we are seriously so obsessed with!
Once Adson & I finally saw each other at our first look, everything finally started to sink in. WE WERE GETTING MARRIED! He looked so incredibly handsome in his custom suit from Jos. A. Bank & I felt like a real-life princess in my Maggie Sottero gown with customizations from The Dressing Room St. Pete.
My Uncle officiated our ceremony & it was so sentimental & beautiful! My dad shared some words of advice at the beginning & prayed over us which led to the most emotional, beautiful moment! I’ll never forget that. We were finally announced “HUSBAND & WIFE” with confetti poppers cueing the exciting, once-in-a-lifetime moment. It felt like a dream!!
It was so dreamy! We had the most delicious food (cooked by both of our mothers) and the coolest donut truck from Little Blue Donut Co. which was definitely the guest favorite!! Another one of my favorite parts from our wedding reception was our live painter, Kaytee Esser, who painted our first dance. Having this painting hanging on our walls has been such a fun keepsake to look back on each day! DJ AT was our DJ at our reception & he kept the night going with some awesome music & dancing! He was a blast!
Seriously, our spring wedding day was so perfect & one we will never forget! We look back on these pictures & our video way too often & I can’t wait to share these with our kids for years to come! Being married is such a gift. Enjoy a look into our special day & thanks for sticking around for this entire book of a blog post 🙂
