Shelby and Nate are two people you want to meet. They are seriously such kind and thoughtful souls. It was such an honor to document their love. Which, they made it so easy to do. Their smiles radiated all.day.long.
I LOVE the colors that they chose. The emerald greens and different greens that they incorporated went so perfectly together and made such a statement!
The details they had were phenomenal. They had written all the guest names for a seating chart on different pieces of glass, and they hand wrote every guest name on beautiful agate slices!
While their day was so perfect – I have to acknowledge a small part of their day that was stressful but ended exactly how it was supposed to! : Their dj was coming from a few hours away and had car troubles and hit traffic. Truly a series of unfortunate events. This meant he wasn’t going to be there in time for the ceremony. They considered swapping the cocktail hour and ceremony, but ultimately chose to go through with the ceremony close to normal time and have Shelby’s sister in law and brother sing during it.
And this was one of my favorite parts of their entire day. It made their ceremony THAT more special. And I believe the entire room was moved and impressed by the emotion that they brought in with their voices. You would have never known that this was impromptu and not part of the original plan.
And what’s so amazing – is that even though it was stressful while trying to figure out how to change their timeline to not delay the celebration – they did this with smiles on their faces. They did not let this ruin their day or even a moment of their day! And everything ended up working out exactly how it was meant to.
But, anyway – Just look at how amazing their day was!
Enjoy all of these sneaks!!
