Kasey sat down to read Nick’s letter. The room was empty, except for us. Her bridesmaids were waiting patiently outside the room at The Tutwiler to see her as a bride for the first time. She was stunning. Her lace gown was trailing down the white sofa and onto the floor alongside her cathedral veil. Nick was downstairs in his gray suit, tucked away in a room off the lobby, Kasey’s letter in hand. Those were the last words they would get from one another before they saw each other on their big day. She fought back the tears, and I tried not to disturb the moment too much with the clicks of my shutter. It was almost time for their first look, a whirlwind of pictures, then they were to become husband and wife before dancing the night away with their best friends and family at Haven.
Kasey and Nick are kind. Over the course of the day, Nick must have told me thank you at least a dozen times. With a wedding party of 32, and standing room only at the ceremony, they were surrounded by people who love them all day and into the night. No one has that many friends without great character, and it showed all day. Kasey was a dream bride. She placed her trust in my expertise when it came to all her pictures. She carefully selected a simple yet stunning pallet of gray and white with hints of greenery. Their smiles and their love for one another lit up the room along with their candles and custom lighting.
Kasey and Nick, it was an honor to get to know you over the last year and to serve you on this memorable day. I can’t thank you enough for your gratitude, your easy going attitudes, and the way you guys love big and laugh hard. Your beauty shone from the inside out, and you were a picturesque couple all day long. I can see why all your people love you! I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
Here are some of my favorites from your big day!
