Just a few moments before, he had stood with his back to her. And he had turned around, eyes filled with excitement and a smile on his face, to see his bride for the first time that day. Now they stood in a long embrace, together at last, as she whispered words into his ear that only the two of them could hear. It was a first look full of every bit as much excitement as the first time they had laid eyes on each other, only with years of love and experience behind it. And it was obvious to everyone in attendance that day that they would spend the rest of their lives looking at each other with the same excitement and love, as if it was the first time, every time . . . .

Allie and Andy are married! They had the sweetest wedding day at Heritage Springs Country Club that we absolutely loved being a part of, not only because these two are some of the kindest souls on the planet, but because the day was such an amazing celebration of love. Allie wore the most beautiful, off-shoulder dress that had sleeves so perfect they even had Ben fan-girling a little bit, and she looked so stunning that we were over-flowing with excitement when we finally got to the first look! Andy looked ever so dapper in a bow tie, and lit up when he finally got to see his bride in a way that may have made a few photographer’s eyes a little teary.
These two included TONS of portrait time in their wedding day timeline, which allowed us to explore the grounds of the club and get so many perfect shots. We couldn’t have felt more spoiled by the fantastic light, plentiful time or sweet subjects any more. Every bit of this day from the heartfelt ceremony to the navy and burgundy palette to the Kiss the Girl cake topper (yes, Sarah TOTALLY busted out some Little Mermaid singing) was just amazing and we felt so lucky to document every minute.
Allie and Andy, we couldn’t have loved this day with you guys any more! Thank you so much for inviting us into this time in your lives, and for making us feel like such an important part of your wedding process. Love you guys, and hope you’re eating something DELISH and carb filled in Italy today!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
