Do you see the way these two look at each other? It warms my heart every time I see their pictures.
Courtney and Luke's venue was spectacular, decorations on point, DJ rocked it, food absolutely delicious. But the way they look at each other was the reason this wedding was a dream to photograph.
These two chose to do a first look so they could spend lots of time together on their wedding day. Luke stood under beautiful greenery excitedly waiting to Courtney to arrive. I watched as Courtney was all smiles as she approached her groom-to-be. She read him a letter as his back was still turned and then finally Luke got to turn around. That moment is one of my favorites of the whole wedding day! Emotions flood across a bride and groom's face as they realize that THIS IS IT! The day they have been waiting for!
The day went flawlessly from then on from my perspective! The hot August weather decided to take a bit of a break, giving us big fluffy clouds and a slight breeze. Family members and friends teared up during the ceremony and had constant smiles through the reception. And I got to eat really fantastic tacos! Which is always a plus in my book.
Luke and Courtney, you are both dear to my heart. May your life together be filled with adventure, trust, and unconditional love. I am excited for you to see these peeks of your wedding!
