Bailey & Dylan’s Wedding Day was beautifully put together with every detail thought out.
We arrived and were greeted by the sounds of sweet laughter from Bailey and all of her gorgeous Bridesmaids who were getting all dolled up!
The girls of Southern Belles Beauty were hard at work making sure these girls looked amazing.
When we walked into the room Bailey’s Wedding gown was hung along with all of the Bridesmaids dresses in perfect formation with the most beautiful custom hangers ready to go!
I definitely took advantage of this and took a few pictures of them all hung perfectly, and then we gathered the remainder of Bailey’s detail items and the dress and got to work capturing all of the precious things that meant so much to her.
It wasn’t long until Bailey was ready to get into her Wedding Dress, which is always such a precious moment. Her mom helped her do this along with helping to put on her jewelry and veil, while her Bridesmaids looked on with sweet smiles. You can almost see their thoughts in moments like that…”doesn’t she look stunning…” is what I imagine their inner voice is repeating. And yes. Yes she did look absolutely stunning!
Once Bailey was all ready, we headed outside for the First Look. I instructed Dylan to close his eyes and turn the other way, and when Bailey was ready she let him know to open his eyes and turn around. The look on his face said it all. As we stayed in the background, trying to allow them a few moments of quiet to really live in the moment, we could see how much they truly loved one another. The few tears from Bailey, and Dylans grin that just wouldn’t stop told us everything we needed to know. These two grew up together, and had loved each other for many years…they were so excited that their Wedding Day had finally arrived!
The First Look provides us with the opportunity to get almost everything we need prior to the Ceremony even starting. Directly after their First Look, once they told us they were ready, we led them into Portraits of the two of them. One of my favorite times of the day! I can’t help it, I just absolutely LOVE capturing two people in love and all dolled up!
We then immediately went into Groomsmen Portraits, Wedding Party as a whole and Bridesmaids Portraits!
Whew! Seriously guys! We can get so much done and then YOU get to the party so much quicker!
Once we got all of the Portraits done, we sent the Wedding Party away to hide, get touchups and cool down (because let’s be real honest…it is July in TEXAS so it’s HOOOOTTTT) and we got to work on capturing all the beautiful details of the Ceremony space as well as the Reception space.
Bailey & Dylan’s Wedding Ceremony was held at First Baptist Church in Franklin, Tx. Bailey made it her own with the hand made arbor (WOW y’all, I mean that was some amazing craftsmanship! I was super impressed when I heard they MADE it and didn’t rent it!), and beautiful floral touches.
Bailey walked down the aisle, her eyes locked on Dylan’s. The two exchanged vows and sealed the whole thing with a kiss!
Because we got so much done prior to the Wedding Ceremony, we just had to do Family Portrait time and then headed to the Reception!
Their Wedding Reception was held at the Pridgeon Community Center in Franklin, Tx which was a quick 4min drive down the road from the church.
The detail that went into decorating the space was nothing short of amazing. Twinkle lights hung everywhere, with florals and greenery accenting the walls. The head table was set beautifully and included the most amazing geometric goblets! I was OBSESSED! I need some for myself and am currently on the hunt for them!
The whole night was an evening of dancing, eating and fun for all! The Bridesmaids had even planned a fun dance to do with Bailey! It was so fun to watch!
The night ended with a Confetti Grand Exit and they rode of in a MASERATI!
We are so very excited for Bailey and Dylan and hope that their Wedding was everything they hoped for and more!
Congrats you guys, we were truly honored to be there!
