We love when a wedding day is all about the marriage. Not the flowers, the food, or the big party at the end. But the opening page of a love story, one that will last a lifetime. This wedding was one of those. When Erica turned a tearful face to Travis and promised to be as patient, kind, and loving as he has been to her, we knew she meant every word. And when he vowed to keep her safe, to support her, and to always love her, there was no doubt that he spoke the truth. This day was only a formality, because they had already devoted their hearts to each other long ago. They understood that the party at the end was really only the beginning, and that made it so much more than a celebration!

When we first met with Emily and Trey, they told us that they didn't want a traditional wedding. With that, we loved them right away! Then Emily said what she really wanted was an intimate, laid-back dinner, where a wedding just happens to take place in the middle of it. We loved them even more! The best part? They got exactly what they wanted.

I can't believe it's taken me six years to write this post! The First Look is something I feel strongly about, and I should have written about it long ago. I'm making up for that with today's Wedding Tips photography installment. The First Look is an amazing part of the wedding day! If you aren’t sure about this new tradition, this post will explain why it is a romantic addition to your wedding day celebration that not only adds to the experience but also reduces stress.

They met in college, and it was almost love at first sight. Bobby knew they were being set up by mutual friends, and that the first few dates were a test, but Ellen had no clue. She was simply her charming, adorable self. But even having no prior knowledge, Ellen passed all the tests with flying colors. It didn't take long for Bobby to know that she was the one he wanted to spend forever with.

Addie and Matt had a gorgeous, romantic wedding this weekend, with lots of vintage details and tons of lace! Their early morning ceremony was perfect timing, as it started pouring an hour after they left for their honeymoon. I loved every second of the morning...
