i’ve mentioned before that i always get a little nervous when we don’t have a chance to meet the bride and groom before the wedding day; this past saturday was no exception. but the nerves that had been creeping in since my alarm that morning were immediately tossed out of the picture when i met kaney. her warm, genuine and relaxed smile assured me we had plenty of laughter and fun ahead of us… and that was my understatement of the day! their whole day was overflowing with excitement and love pouring in from everywhere! in no time at all it became clear to me that these two are surrounded by intensely loyal and loving friends and family; the excitement during the ceremony was practically tangible! …and i’m writing too much and you’re here for the pics, haha, here are a few of our faves:
this piece of lace being worked into kaney’s hair was given to her by lewis’ mom; it’s a piece from her own wedding gown. isn’t that perfect and just so stunning!?
matt’s first homemade macro shot, i’m pretty much in love with it!
lewis’ mom helping him out with his suspenders:
their beautiful ceremony was held at the dekalb history center (old decatur courthouse) and really, what an amazing venue!
kaney’s brother came to meet her to escort her down the aisle; he was so excited for her he could hardly contain himself, it was quite an emotional few minutes!
finally kaney met lewis at the front- after a few hours of not seeing each other these two were more than ready to reunite and get married!
in a very personal part of the ceremony each of their parents read a passage and poured a portion of water into this beautiful basin:
we haven’t done this before but this wedding just begged for some detail boards!
onto the reception in the grand salon and terrace at the fabulous fox theatre!
i definitely picked up from the toasts that kaney loves to dance but i wasn’t quite ready for just how awesome she is when she hits the dance floor! i wish i could have picked up some dance pointers but i was just in awe pretty much most of the evening!
beautiful white orchids adorned the ceremony and reception sites and were given as gifts at the end of the evening; love it! as we were leaving, kaney gave us our very own orchid to enjoy! if you know me you know how i love plants and how i tend to love them to death…like…literally. don’t worry, i’ve called my grandmother and she’s mailing me an orchid-care article asap. kaney, it’ll be well cared for, thank you so much!
hip hop pioneer dj red alert kept the dancing going strong all night:
here are a few of our favorite details from the reception, between keri and bold american catering everything was simply beautiful!
kaney & lewis, thank you guys for an amazing day! we are so thrilled that you chose us to capture it all! you’ve inspired matt to a. learn to dance and b. get into classic hip hop. i’m not sure yet if he’s quite a natural dancer like you. ;) you guys rock and we can’t wait to share with you even more of your beautiful images!
