Palm Event Center Wedding
Stephanie and Dawud had an awesome wedding a few weeks ago at the beautiful Palm Event Center. It was SUCH a pretty day! Mild weather, great people, so much love and LOADS of fun! We had a WONDERFUL time celebrating the marriage of this fantastic pair. We laughed, we cried, we danced and made some beautiful images. All in all, a great wedding!
I LOVE the purple dresses and the stunning flowers the gals carried. The soft palate was perfect for this summer wedding. Of course, while I was photographing the ladies, Dustin hung out with the guys as they got ready for the day.
Then it was First Look time! I ADORED Dawud’s reaction to seeing his bride – tears, hugs and then shaking it off! Perfection.
We grabbed some bridal party pics and then got these two married! The wedding was in the beautiful barrel room, and officiated by the grooms uncle. There were lots of tears and lots of laughter and SO much love. It was fantastic!
After a quick champagne toast with the bridal party, we jumped into family pictures and then grabbed some pictures of our wonderful couple. The light was lovely! It made me SO happy.
Then it was party time! And party they did! Dancing, games, heartfelt toasts, parent dances that had EVERYONE crying, and then SO. MUCH. DANCING! It was a blast!
Stephanie wrote me the lovliest email when I delivered their images last week. Here’s what she had to say,
I don’t even know where to begin. I became so overwhelmed going through the photos yesterday. You and Dustin captured so much emotion in our wedding photos. We can go back and look at our photos and relive that day and we are deeply grateful for that. We are so in love with the pictures and can’t stop looking at them. Our family and friends who have viewed the photos feel the same way. We got so many compliments about our photographers at the wedding and even days later. You guys are amazing — your work and your personalities! Dawud and I loved spending time with you and Dustin. Shoot — anyone that can share in Dawud’s humor when he gets to drinking is special in my book. lol. I do have one gripe though…how did Dawud and Kira (bridesmaid) sneak in a photo with you and Dustin and I didn’t manage to? I was probably in my own little world at that point — too much champagne I am guessing. 🙂
Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for the priceless photos and for the opportunity to get to know you and your hubby. I am sure we’ll be seeing you guys again — no sense in ever looking for another photographer!
