Right from the start they knew this was different. People say you know when its “The One”, when you’ve found your soul mate and for Reagan and Michael, this could not have been more true. In the early days of their relationship life made things a little challenging, Michael’s deployment to Korea (thank god for Skype), Reagan’s months spent studying abroad in Europe (high fives for modern air travel and romantic trips to European cities, including a stop over in Ireland, “holla to the homeland”). Through it all they remained by each others side, both physically and virtually (another shoutout to Skype) because they knew their efforts would one day pay dividends towards a long and happy future together. Finally, last Saturday, that day came.
Reagan and Michael, you are an incredible couple. I cannot begin to find the words to express how much of an honor it was to document your day. You’re both so kind and warm and deserve all of the good things that come your way. I wish you both the happily ever after of your dreams.
During their trip to Ireland Michael bought Reagan a Claddagh ring (traditional Irish ring) that she always wears on her right hand, just like me : )
The style, the details, Reagan’s dress was stunning.
This is how every bride should feel in her wedding dress.
Meanwhile, in the grooms suite.
Final touches before they head out for their First Look.
I was so excited that Reagan and Michael opted to see each other before the ceremony. That little window of time, all to themselves before the craziness of the day really begins, is absolutely priceless. Plus, it gives us the change to capture some absolutely fierce photos. Here Michael waits anxiously as Reagan nervously approaches.
Michael is blown away by Reagan’s fierceness.
Reagan’s sister and awesome maid of honor, Erica slapped on her comfy shoes and walked with us everywhere to make sure her sister looked nothing less then perfect in each shot.
Love this old truck that sits at the entrance to the Farley Plantation.
Workin it Michael.
When your the bride and groom, why should you have to walk anywhere? Reagan and Michael hitch a ride down to the ceremony site.
Reagan’s team of bridesmaids were ah-mazing. Loved these girls.
The boys give me their best serious faces.
Great looking group of people.
The groom gets into position.
Followed shortly by the bride and her dad.
I’m not gonna lie, this moment between Reagan and her dad, right before he walked her down the aisle, got me a little misty eyed.
Mother of the bride couldn’t keep it together either.
Neither could the groom. Not a dry eye in the house.
“You may kiss your bride”
Waaahoo, Mr & Mrs
So glad I captured this moment right after the ceremony.
Father daughter dance.
