I went back and forth on if I wanted to do first look photos on the wedding day. I decided since our wedding was right at sunset that we needed to take some before. As I hurriedly finished getting dressed with several people around me, ” Someone said ITs time he’s waiting for you outside. ” Don’t get me wrong Mr. Hall gives me butterflies all the time but this time It was different. I walk out the back door of the cabin with the DJ playing some generic wedding music with no words. I instantly start crying. I have dreamed, waited for this day my whole life. There was a lot going on but everything just went quiet In my head and it was just Dalton and I by the pond. I walked up behind him. Pinched his butt and grabbed his hand. We exchanged our letters and read them back to back. His letter was the sweetest most thoughtful thing I have ever read. Then we turned around and I seen my future right there in front of me. All that I ever wanted. Here our some of my favorites from our first look. ( A BIG THANK YOU TO SYDNEE AND MAL FOR CAPTURING THIS FOR US).
It took a couple of weeks to write this blog but I wanted to share our special day with everyone. As a little girl you dream of your wedding day. I never knew what kind of stress or time it meant to plan a wedding but after the end result I am so happy we done it. That day we woke up to wonderful weather! The forecast all week had predicted rain. We went and visited Daltons family before we headed to the cabin to finish up the décor at the cabin. Just driving dirt roads that morning with the windows down with my soon to be husband was amazing. I will always remember just looking over at him smiling at how excited I was.
The morning of ❤
Gorgeous drive to the cabin
Get to the cabin still had tons to do :(. My MOH bestie got there that morning and helped with getting the décor just right . Then the girls headed to take showers and go to the hair salon. Of course we had mimosas while we were getting ready. Its been a long time since Me and Sav got to just hang out by ourselves. I cherished that on such a special day. I am very blessed with a dear dear friend. Then we listened to old school rap and drove back out to the cabin.
Got back to the cabin then began the chaos. We did pictures before. Going to write a separate post for our first look photos. The ceremony went off without a hitch. My friend Steve Brogdon performed our ceremony for us. He did such a wonderful job. It was very special to hear his speech he prepared because he is such a good friend with such a big heart. Our wedding party included:
Daltons Best Man: Ryan Adkins Groomsmen : Josh Summers.
My Maid of Honor : Savannah Pyle
Flower Girls: Reese Waldrop & Addleigh Pickett
Ring Bearers: Logan Bonzo & Gabriel Bonzo
Friends and Family that some I haven’t seen in years came to celebrate with us. We are so very blessed to start this amazing journey with so many wonderful people around us.
Thank you for reading … Stay tuned for more wedding pictures 🙂
Tomorrow is the big day!! So many emotions that I am experiencing.. Life is a rollercoaster… Highs & Lows… Dips & Turns…. Years after years I watched all my friends find their husbands have their babies and start their beautiful lives. There for a few years I had accepted singlehood and was living a full life surrounded by amazing people. I dreamed of a happily ever after. Ive experienced heartbreak and pain that I never thought I could live through. Friend after friend saying ,”dont worry Kane it will happen.” As I sit here writing this even though Im stressed I have never been more in love in my life. All those cliches are true. I have never had someone love me like Dalton does: The good, the bad and the ugly. He has my back 100%. He makes me laugh every single day. So very thankful that we get to vow tomorrow in front of all our friends & family to love each other forever. Its the easiest decision I have ever made. So I just wanted to say thank you to all the people that are making our wedding possible. This girl is finally getting her happily ever after…
Whats a blog without a random post….Weekends are always my favorite. Didn’t do a whole lot of anything this weekend but thought I would post about it. 🙂 Watched a few movies.. Yes I said a few… Did a photo shoot with one of my dearest friends and her beautiful daughters…. Hung out with the fiancee. Now watching the Emmy’s listening to rain on our tin roof… Here are my random thoughts…
We went with Dalton’s parents to watch this movie this weekend. Let me tell you I always tend to go toward movies that can happen in real life. This movie kept my attention the entire time.( Didn’t get on my phone once). It has the 3 m’s I require in a movie. Murder, Mystery & Men.. 5 stars from me….
One word for this movie: Pointless. The plot was never explained and then it just ended. Do not waste your time on this one. 0 stars…..
Our friends recommended this movie to us. It was hilarious!! And it is not just a chick flick Dalton liked it too. Such a funny movie watch it!
Watching the Emmy’s and I am so in LOVE with Jessica Biel’s dress.
Here are a couple of pictures from my photo shoot this weekend.
Reese Waldrop …Love her little expressions
My longtime friend Kendra. She is a supermom and mom to 3 little girls; the third due this December. Is she not gorgeous….
My friend Sydnee had her bachelorette this weekend. Although I didnt get to go I know she had a blast and enjoyed all pictures. Her wedding date is Sept 30th and Mine is Oct 7th……
That is life., Random AF.. Thank you for reading…
Yesterday was like a dream. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be this in love and this blessed with the amount of love that was shown this weekend. My hosts were Savannah, Kay & Kendra. These 3 friends mean so much to me. They outdid their selves with the food, cookies, cake & decor. I love you girls. Also a special thanks to Sydnee for taking pics for me. I am one of the last ones of my friends to get married and they have been there through it all. They all encouraged me to never settle and wait for the right one. Man it was worth the wait. I have never been in love like this before. Hes my very best friend. Hes turning me to into a love loving mushy girl. Anywho here our some pics from our shower. We love all of you that got to come 💜💙
