One of the things Elizabeth stressed to me in preparing for her wedding was that people were very important to her and Jeff. And isn’t that the reason we have weddings? To celebrate with our people – our new spouse, our family, friends and relatives, all gathered under one roof. It’s pretty amazing to think about!
Let me tell y’all, the people at this wedding were such a wonderful group! From the moment I arrived at Elizabeth’s home to the bubble exit at the end of the night, everyone was so joyful and gracious. Her dad kept everyone laughing while also keeping us organized and on schedule, and her mom was the most calm and relaxed mother of the bride ever!
Elizabeth is the oldest of five siblings, and one of my favorite moments of the night was when she danced with all three of her brothers one by one during the daddy daughter dance. It was such a sweet touch to include them (and they are all great dancers too!)
Elizabeth and Jeff made a point to spend a little time with just each other on their wedding day. They shared a private first look before their ceremony where they got to just be together, then we were able to take almost all of their portraits before guests even arrived! This allowed them to go straight to the reception after where they had a little more time to themselves to eat before their first dances. It’s so important to make each other a priority, on a day when its easy to get swept up everything going on around you!
