Sitting on the steps of the beautiful Lemp Mansion with Sarah’s mom, we discussed the habits of men. Even though she had been married 10 times as long as I have, we laughed as we told stories of how similar our husbands are. Laughing over the silly things they do, we began talking about her daughter, Sarah. Sarah and her mom are the spitting image of one another. With all the tornado warnings and rain in the forecast all week for their outdoor wedding, Sarah said to her mom “I don’t deserve to be upset about the weather when so many people lost their homes from the tornados.” This, in a nutshell, is Sarah…kind, thoughtful and as sweet as they come. Jeff is no different. They are truly an amazing couple that I feel so lucky to have met! They have a beautiful relationship and I am grateful to have witnessed their testiment to one another on their wedding day.
Sarah designed the perfect wedding! Everything was beautiful and had their style written all over every detail.
Sarah and Jeff had a very small wedding party so Sarah asked all her best friends to join her as she got ready at the Lemp. I loved this idea! There was so much love and adoration in the room…it was the perfect scene to get ready. The girls all sat on the bed oooh-ing and aahh-ing as she prepared to see her groom for the first time.
Love these next two shots:
And the boys…
Another reason this wedding was so special to me, was that I had my sister, Kimm, 2nd shooting with me. I had been training her for some time and this wedding was her first and we had SO much fun together. I could get used to having her shoot with me! She did an amazing job!
Their first look…
Love this shot Kimm got of the girls peeking in on the guys while I was taking the photo above.
Here are all of Sarah’s best friends all glammed up for photos! Love these!
(And how much does the girl to Sarah’s right look like Zooey Deschanel??)
One of my favorites from the day…
How gorgeous is Sarah???
Now it is time to get married!
Sarah’s dad gave the speech that every girl wants to hear. It was funny, heartfelt and full of emotion and love for his daughter! My eyes were full of tears throughout his entire speech. I have to say it was my favorite part of the day!
Another great shot by Kimm! This ringbearer was adorable!!
Milk & Cookie favors!
