Emily and Gavin’s wedding day will be a Lakeside ranch wedding I won’t soon forget! From the beautiful dusty blue tones to the vibrant, fresh rain greens – you just have to see how beautiful overcast can be to believe it!
The day before Emily and Gavin’s wedding it was very rainy and that brought out the dark green colors that I love but thankfully what was forecasted to be 70% rain the day of turned into cloudy, windy and very chilly overnight, but NO rain! Grateful that even if it had rained the ceremony was completely covered so it wasn’t a big deal for one and two, it was so cold it actually probably would have snowed instead haha; and this silly Florida girl left her jacket at home – go figure.
However, even with the shivering cold temps Emily and Gavin lit each other up with love. Every time Emily saw Gavin there was a smile on her face that couldn’t be held in. The first look between bride and groom was like something out of a romantic comedy, Gavin said; “I will not turn around unless she calls me – Lord McCloskey” and he really didn’t, but it made it all the more heartwarming for them. Just look at his reaction! So sweet.
It’s rare that I show up and meet my bride and groom for the first time on their wedding day, but for Emily and Gavin it definitely didn’t feel like the first time. Emily was warm and kind hearted and so willing to do anything I asked of her. And Gavin was a goof ball who didn’t have a shy bone in his body lol. Both of them felt like old friends within minutes of meeting them and I’m so happy to have been chosen to photograph their gorgeous day! Even though we didn’t have the engagement session prep they were natural models and made it easy for me. Here’s some more beautiful photographs from their day, I especially love the images I took of their handsome little men, one of which at 5 years old gave a good little speech haha – I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks and make sure to check out the vendors listed at the bottom!
