I hadn't had the opportunity to photograph a wedding in a while, so I was very excited when Kevin and Cassidy asked me to document their special day!
Cassidy's dress and flowers were just beautiful. She picked a deep, rich red as her accent color, so classic red roses were a perfect choice in her bouquet.
Cassidy and her bridesmaids got ready in her home. They had a great time together doing hair and makeup to prepare for the main event.
Cassidy's bridesmaids each wore a quintessential "little black dress" which is always a great choice to flatter the ladies in the wedding party and make them feel beautiful, too!
Even though the wedding was held in January, we had a rare beautiful day. Although it rained the whole week beforehand and we still had cloudy skies, the sun peeked through here and there and the temperature made it feel more like early spring.
Kevin made such a handsome groom, and his and Cassidy's son was an equally handsome ring bearer!
One of my favorite moments is always catching the look on a groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time on their wedding day. Kevin's smile did not disappoint!
There were so many special moments during their ceremony, I was so honored to be there to capture them all.
And of course, the kiss and the introduction of the newly married couple are also favorite moments for me, as well! It's easy to see the joy in Cassidy's big smile!
Cassidy was able to take a few minutes with her mother and sister after the wedding. All the ladies in the family looked gorgeous for this special event.
These are my favorite photos from the day. I just love Cassidy's soft smile and stunning brown eyes! She was a truly beautiful bride!
Of course we had to get some group shots of the wonderful friends and family who shared this special day with the couple. I love the expressions in the photo of Cassidy with her dad.
Next it was time for a photo of the new family and a few fun shots with the wedding party.
Then we cleared out the church to make time for a few private moments with the newlyweds. While they enjoyed a little bit of quiet time after the hectic day, I got some close-up shots of their gorgeous rings. Cassidy rings were so tiny that her wedding band completely fit inside of Kevin's!
No wedding is complete without a gorgeous cake! I loved how the black swirls on the cake coordinated with Cassidy's black and white reception color theme.
Cassidy couldn't pass up her once in a lifetime opportunity to "cake" her groom! Kevin was a good sport, although it's probably pretty lucky that he had already very nicely given Cassidy her piece of cake beforehand.
Then it was time for the toast. Best wishes for many years of happiness for this wonderful couple!
As the reception wound down, it was time for the bouquet and garter tosses. Kevin surprised the men with a little slingshot-style garter throw!
Kevin and Cassidy must have some great friends, because both of their vehicles were very nicely decorated for their departure and no one went overboard with anything crazy, as far as I could tell.
Congratulations, Kevin & Cassidy! Thank you so much for letting me document your special day!
