The bride wanted a top bun in her Vera Wang, then, red lips for the reception. The groom sported his great grandfather’s cufflinks and tie clip. The whole wedding had close attention to what mattered the most – family. Two brothers and a sister made up the wedding party, the mother’s signed the marriage license, and this 63 person wedding event was everything sweet, lovely, and perfect.
Lizzey was a giddy bride, laughing and savoring every moment. She told me she couldn’t wait to see the pictures before I even started taking them. Her family was everything that cotton candy is made of. Trevor, incredibly laid back, full of joy and smiles was eager to see his bride. Together Lizzey and Trevor are a happy, enthusiastic pair. I’m convinced that through life, with their optimistic outlook, nothing can ever rain on their parade .
Trevor adores Lizzey. You can see it in the way he holds her and pulls her chair out. She is his princess. Lizzy giggles a lot when Trevor is around, you can tell he’s her best friend. Whenever I switch lenses I tell my couples they can rest. “Oh, we’ll just kiss,” giggled Lizzey. They are my affectionate, kissy couple. Since our Biltmore engagement session last fall, I had looked so much forward to seeing them again, that even after eight hours, neither Amy or I wanted to leave. When you find yourself smiling on the other side of the camera and sighing when you edit, you know you captured a lovely event. This was most definitely the hardest end of the night goodbye.
