When I first began to look through the images of Kayla and Landon's wedding day, I almost had no idea how I would ever be able to just choose a handful to share. I wanted to share them all! (I can thank Alex and Sara Lucas of AL Weddings for making the decision that much more difficult! haha) Part of the reason for that is because this particular wedding was of such great importance in my life - this was the wedding of my cousin, my dance partner through the years, my fellow dreamer, and my best friend. It was my honor and privilege to be the Month-Of Coordinator and Maid of Honor to this sweet girl and these snapshots will always be a treasure.
Kayla has always been a romantic at heart (must run in the family) and her wedding day showed this to the tenth degree. She chose a color palette of white, ivory, and blush pink with pale green accents in the floral arrangements. Carol Harris of Lillie Jane's did an exceptional job on the floral creations of the day - whether it was the magnificent arbor, fireplace detailing, or bouttonieres - each detail was dripping with romance.
The bride's dress was a gorgeous and fluffy gown from Ivory & White while the bridesmaids wore shades of blush. Oh, and don't let me forget to mention the bride's cowgirl boots - a hint at her fun-loving personality!
The ceremony was delivered by the bride's uncle, a pastor from Jacksonville, Florida, and I don't believe there was a dry eye in the vicinity. The ceremony acknowledged the love that Kayla and Landon now shared and the love of their Savior, Jesus Christ. It was beautiful and thoughtful, and a blessing to be a part of.
After the ceremony, guests entered the stables to enjoy the most delicious meal catered by Jim N' Nick's, cake from Olexa's, and cupcakes from Gigi's (Notice the superhero theme? That's a special nod to Landon's love of superheroes and I LOVE it!) The evening was full of mingling, dancing, and laughter. It was simply a good night to be together and enjoy the happy couple - basically, what I call a successful day! The two lovebirds left amidst some heartily thrown rice and have been enjoying marital bliss ever since.
