Morgan + Cj: The View Event Center Wedding Day // Williamstown, Kentucky
I was lucky enough to start this month off by capturing Morgan & Cj’s wedding day and I am SO excited to share a few of my favorite photos from their big day with you!
I started my morning off by meeting Morgan & her girls at her house to capture the final moments of them getting ready. I always think that it’s so sweet to get ready for such a special day at home, and Morgan & Cj’s house was PERFECT for photos! What a dream! After hair and makeup, Morgan got into her dress and read a sweet note from Cj. But before you see any of those photos, you need to take a moment to appreciate these GORGEOUS details! Morgan really put so much time and effort into the little touches and it went so far throughout the day! So so so perfect!
While I was with Morgan and the girls, my awesome second shooter, Akayla, was with Cj & his groomsmen. It looks like they spent the morning opening gifts and getting ready before taking a few group photos and heading over to meet us at Morgan & Cj’s house!
Once Cj arrived, it was time for his first look with Morgan. This was the absolute sweetest moment and he had the BEST reaction to seeing his soon-to-be wife for the first time! Since we had their first look right in their backyard, we were able to bring their pups, Rhett & Nelli, out for photos, too! I absolutely love it when couples incorporate their fur babies into their wedding photos!
After finishing up with photos in the backyard, we headed to the venue! I’ve been SO lucky this fall season to be able to photograph so many wedding days at so many new venues and The View Event Center in Williamstown, Kentucky was a new venue for me! We took bridal party portraits (this bridal party was SO much fun!!) before taking couples portraits of Morgan & Cj and it was awesome to be able to explore new photo spots around the venue!
After photos, it was time for the ceremony! Instead of lighting a unity candle or pouring colored sand into a new container, Morgan & Cj decided to take a different direction and do a unity shot with a shotski! This was so much fun and their guests LOVED it!
After the ceremony we took a few family photos (but those are for Morgan & Cj to share!) before soaking up the last of the sunshine and taking golden hour portraits of the new Mr. & Mrs. Robinson! Sooooo dreamy!
After finishing up with photos, it was time for the reception! I know I mentioned it earlier, but Morgan did a GREAT job with all of these details! Everything came together so perfectly and the space was BEAUTIFUL! From the florals & candles on the head table to the incredible donut bar, this space was truly amazing! Once the bridal party entered we had a delicious dinner, listened to the sweetest speeches (cue the tears!), Morgan & Cj cut their cake, they shared their first dance together, Cj danced with his mom, and then Morgan danced with her mom & sister and invited parents and children to join them on the dance floor. This was such a sweet moment and one of my favorites from the entire day! After that, we took a big group photo before the party started! This was such a fun ending to an incredible day and I’m so happy that Morgan & Cj are finally MARRIED! Congratulations, you two!!
