I soo feel like a broken record when I talk about the weather and wedding days… but this spring has been crazy. I’ve actually stopped looking at the weather all together until 24 hours out because there’s no reason to get worked up about it!! And y’all May 11th was the same!! The morning of the 11th I knew we’d be in rain “ALL” day!! There was a crazy storm system heading straight for the upstate and the chances of rain were 100% all over so I was already working through where I’d do photos and how everything was going to go.
I arrived at Green Valley Country Club and other than a stray shower on my drive there it was overcast and honestly I love overcast so win win!! I walked into the bridal suite and said hi to Jordan & then hello to Ryan and y’all I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more calm and at ease bride & groom on their wedding day… especially when the weather forecast is looking so bad and their ceremony was outside!! All I know is that their at ease made me more at ease and I stopped going through rain plans in my head and I am sooo soo thankful that I did… BECAUSE IT DIDN’T RAIN!!! The only rain I think we had was during the reception!! It turned out to be the most beautiful Saturday afternoon and these two couldn’t have been happier!!
Jordan & Ryan are one of those couples that within seconds of meeting them… you know they were meant for one another. The way they balance each other out. The way they bring out joy in each other. The way they light up when they see one another!! You’ll see it in the images but as soon as Ryan saw Jordan as she walked down the aisle his entire face lit up!! I’m pretty sure he smiled 99.9% of the ceremony and it was the sweetest thing ever!! These two stayed by each other the entire night and to see them take it all in… be loved on by their family and friends… well it made me smile!! Soo soo excited for Jordan & Ryan!! here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding day!!
PS for those of you who I get to have in front of my camera… if you’re in front of it for a wedding you can blame Jordan for the crazy/fun stuff I’ve started doing with the FULL bridal party!!! She told me that she wanted to do some “fun shots” like right after the shot above and in my head I’m like “fun…. what can I do that’s fun” and y’all I completely pulled something out of my hat and ran with a few different things and it turned out that I LOVED it and now I’m going to keep doing it!!!!!!
Jordan & Ryan, thank y’all soo much for wanting me to photograph your wedding day. It has been such a joy and honor to get to know y’all and work with you two for the last year!! Soo excited for y’all!! Love you guys so much!!
