Sarah + Joe: Wedding Day

I have been looking forward to Sarah & Joe's wedding day ever since they got engaged in August of last year. These two are the absolute SWEETEST and the love that they share is so deep. I first met them at Sarah's twin sister Rachael's wedding last year, and was SO excited when they reached out to have me document their wedding day as well. Sarah and Rachael have the nicest family and I loved being able to see them all again. I started the day off by meeting Sarah and her bride tribe at the Parlour On The Avenue. This was such a cute little place and was perfect for getting ready on a wedding day! After finishing up with hair and makeup here, we all headed back to Sarah's parents' house to capture a few important wedding details & to give everyone time to get dressed. Sarah's mom helped Sarah get into her dress before having her first look with her dad and bridesmaids. It was so sweet to see how excited everyone was to celebrate this day and and I'm so glad it turned out as beautiful as it did. Even though it was predicted to rain throughout the day, the weather held off and we had an absolutely gorgeous afternoon and evening!

After everyone finished up with getting ready, we headed to the church! This was actually my first time photographing a wedding in this church since I got married here this past January. It's so incredibly beautiful and means even more to me to capture weddings here now that I've been a bride here as well. These photos are absolutely gorgeous and I'm in love with the way they turned out. While I was hanging out with Sarah and her girls in one of the front rooms, my incredible second shooter Sam was busy hanging out with Joe and his guys as they finished getting ready. She also took a few photos of Joe alone in the empty church and I love that it's so easy to see his confidence and excitement to be married in them. Joe's reaction to Sarah walking down the aisle absolutely MELTS me and it's so precious to see the happiness radiate off of both of them after their first kiss. Sarah and Joe share such a special bond and I love that it shows through in these photos.
