Y’all will remember Ricci Ann and Josh from their engagement session I shared a while back, that also included their two adorable doggos! Need a reminder?

Being the outdoorsy couple they are, their wedding decor DID NOT disappoint with all the beautiful greenery and bold colors.

I loved photographing all the little details from their invitation suit to Ricci Ann’s jewelry.

Ricci Ann and Josh wanted to have a first look before their ceremony – as it was going to be dark by the end of it.

The light was beautiful in the chapel, so we decided to do their first look there.

That sweet nervous wait! 🙂

I always love to be the witness to my couples “first look” reaction, full of happy tears, lots of emotions, and smiles.

After they had a moment to themselves, we continued with their couple’s portraits.

While we had the time, we also knocked the wedding party and family photos out of the way so everybody could go straight into the reception once the ceremony was over.

RK Weddings did an amazing job setting this reception space along with all the decor around the venue. In fact, everything was ready by the time I arrived and with my couple being slightly late, I was happy to get AAALLL the details in as soon as I got there! 🙂

Ceremonies after dark is kind of my favorite – it sets an entire different mood then a well lit ceremony. Yes, it is a little harder to shoot – but I love the romantic feel!

Oh and my amazing assistant Lyndsay captured this stunning birds view while Ricci Ann walked down the aisle!

Of course, I had to do at least one creative shot through the gorgeous chapel doors.

I always love to give my couples a few cool flashy photos in the chapel or around the venues – the Hidden Pines Chapel was perfect for this!

Father/daughter dances will always have a special place in my heart. I’m thankful for my waterproof make-up that can withstand hurricanes because these two made me cry. A lot.
