matt & kadie’s wedding ~ the girls

029 bride portraits lace dressKadie was a stunning bride. In her lace dress, with her dark, loose curls covered by her lace-trimmed veil, she was the perfect picture of relaxed elegance. Honestly, I could have taken photos of her and her beautiful bridesmaids all day!

I very much appreciated the chill vibes in the girls getting ready room. It’s always fun seeing the whole process of a bridal party getting dolled up. I’m an avid fan of beauty anything {fashion mags, YouTube makeup tutorials, Pinterest hair inspiration, all of that}, so being in on this behind-the-scenes part of the wedding day is pretty cool.001 candid getting ready wedding photosKadie was a low maintenance bride who did her own hair and makeup quite beautifully. She has perfected that glamorous loose curl hair, hasn’t she?002 candid getting ready wedding photos003 candid getting ready wedding photos005 candid getting ready wedding photos006 candid getting ready wedding photos007 candid getting ready wedding photos008 candid getting ready wedding photos009 candid getting ready wedding photos010 candid getting ready wedding photos011 candid getting ready wedding photosIt was such a cute moment when Kadie, surrounded by her girls, opened her present from Matt.012 candid getting ready wedding photos013 candid getting ready wedding photos014 candid getting ready wedding photos016 candid getting ready wedding photos017 candid getting ready wedding photos018 candid getting ready wedding photos015 candid getting ready wedding photos019 candid getting ready wedding photosOnce everything and everyone was looking perfect, we headed outside for portraits.

matt & kadie’s wedding ~ the guys

014 groom outdoor portraitsI first met Matt when he came to be an intern for our youth program at my church. We hit it off immediately, as we bonded over having both been homeschool kids. :) Matt is quick to laugh and loves making others laugh as well {especially his bride, Kadie}. It was fun hanging with him and his guys on his wedding day. The groomsmen always provide lots of funny, lighthearted moments for me!

I loved this sign Kadie’s sister painted for the groom’s getting ready room.010 guys getting ready wedding004 guys getting ready wedding005 guys getting ready wedding002 guys getting ready wedding001 guys getting ready wedding006 guys getting ready weddingThe perfect gift from the bride!007 guys getting ready wedding008 guys getting ready wedding003 guys getting ready wedding009 guys getting ready wedding011 guys getting ready weddingThe guys really dug their groomsmen gifts.
