Whitney and Neil’s wedding day has been a long time in the making! But in all honesty, we can’t imagine having it any other way!
How else do you plan for such a dream come true?
Our day started out at the beautiful Bella Sera Ranch, capturing Whitney’s gorgeous bridal details (we’re still awing over that playful BHLDN dress and topper!!!)
Whitney used parts of her favorite baby blanket to wrap around her bouquet. It was a tearful process, but indescribably sentimental to have to connect her past with her future!
And how many brides give out gifts on THEIR wedding days?! Whitney was so sweet when she handed a custom bridal album and heartfelt note to her Grandmother!
And before we knew it, it was time to get ready to say “I do”!!
YOWZERS, Whitney, that bridal glow!!!
And of course, after getting Whitney ready, we had to check in on one of the sweetest grooms ever, Neil! He was calm and relaxed, a total rockstar, and totally ready to roll in about 2 minutes (you guys are pretty lucky!)!
The suspense before the chapel doors opened was nearly tangible….but then it happened!
And it was soooo hard to keep your eyes from tearing up!
This was the first time we had ever seen a couple make a painting during their ceremony and we are officially OBSESSED with the idea!!!
And they were MARRIED!!!
After a champagne toast and a few photos, it was time to celebrate!
We seriously adore these fall details! Gold…pumpkins?! YES!
Even though our schedule did not allow for bride and groom portraits after the ceremony, Whitney and Neil let us sneak them away during the reception for some alone time!
And after touching toasts, loving dances, and a few wild moves, it was time to for Whitney and Neil to get away!
Congratulations to one of the sweetest and most playful couples we’ve ever had the privilege of knowing! Whitney and Neil, if your wedding was a preview of what’s to come, we have every bit of faith that it will be a heartfelt ride with the two of you cheering it on! Thank you for being way too much fun and making us feel like family!
Cheers to the newlyweds!!!!
