Entries in Dara's Garden (2)

{adam and megan } :first look: 

I CANNOT WAIT until next week when I get to share some of my favorites from my 10 year anniversary contest!!  Until then, this post was inspired by one of the entries.  We are LOVE with these first-look photos.  I thought I'd share Adam and Megan's entry and take it a little further and share the whole first look along with a few of my favorites from their pre-wedding photos.  My clients know I'm a BIG believer in a first look making the wedding day SO much more relaxed and fun and I think this is just perfect to show how romantic and sweet having a few stolen moments at the beginning of the day can be. And, besides, aren't the best things always shared and the best days spent together?

Here's what Adam wrote and the photo they submitted: 

 Much like you, we are obsessed with the our first look photos.  We particularly love this picture because it describes us perfectly.  You can tell we are completely absorbed in the moment and each other, and nothing else seemed to matter.  Actually, in this picture we were praying and we think its a good reminder to us that, much like God created that beautiful scenery, he also created this marriage. Even being caught up in a important day like that, where you are worried about details and everything going smoothy, this picture reminds us we are each others first priority on this earth and we don't ever want to forget to stop and pray.

 

 

And here is the rest of the first look.

{jenna and bradley}

Jenna and Bradley tied the knot back on May 8 at Dara's Garden.  My favorite ladies at One Enchanted Evening were responsible for all the lovely pink and grey details...  

I am because you are.  Big grin!

 The shoes! I couldn't resist. The bridesmaids' shoes were so sweet and precious compared to Jenna's studded pumps. So many brides hide tennis shoes, flip-flops or cowboy boots under their dresses, but not Jenna.. this girl was ALL about designer bling!

Is this girl gorgeous or WHAT???  Those EYES!  And her heart is just as big as her beauty!  Bradley's one lucky groom I have to say...

Love that little touch of Robin's egg blue on the barn wall.  

 

But Bradley isn't so bad himself!!  :)

Since the bride and groom didn't want to see each other before the ceremony, I used the old "reach around the door trick". It definitely got Jenna all teared up... hehe! I love the sense of mystery and anticipation captured in this moment.

 

 

 

Jenna and her dad are super close, and had the SWEETEST moment when they first saw each other...  NO TEARS!!!

'walking back down the aisle' pics have ALWAYS been some of my favorites!  This one is  right up there.  ;)

 You know how much I love solar flare. THIS is pure magic. It looks like a movie set.

 

Notice anything different??  Jenna changed dresses for the reception - a trend I've seen more and more lately.  Jenna's second dress was handmade locally and pattered off of the gown Portia De Rossi wore when she married Ellen Degeneres.  It was so beautiful on Jenna!!

I love how the colors in the barn wall play off of his grey suit and her pink dress.

 

 

 

 

and finally... On to the good stuff!!!  Dancin', cake eatin', bouquet tossin', laughin', cryin', sparklin' and just having a grand old time!

Thanks sooooo much Jenna and Bradley for sharing it with me.  xoxoxo
