How do I put in to words how special this wedding was for me? Kate E's family + mine grew up together at the same church in a small town, and Cody's family lived literally a few miles away but because they went to different schools they didn't really get to know each other until a few years ago. I babysat for Cody's cousins when I was a teenager. It's all such a small world, especially in Charlotte county ;) Growing up in such a small town (seriously, we only have 1 blinking light in the whole COUNTY! And that's our big claim to fame and I think it's becoming a stop light soon, ha!) it's probably funny that they didn't really know each other, but I think they met at the right time because that led to their wedding :)
The wedding day was threatened with rain, but it actually turned out to be the most gorgeous overcast day with just a few sprinkles here and there. They decided to do a first look (which I LOVE but never push my couples to do!) and she also did a first look with her bridesmaid as only her mom helped her get dressed, isn't that so sweet? I loved being in the room for that!
Kate E + Cody, THANK YOU SO MUCH for having me as your photographer. I am so happy I got to spend the day with you and I am very much looking forward to following your journey as a married couple and seeing all that life is going to give you!
