Standing in the perfect white bridal suite at
Riverdale Manor, her mom zipped up the last little bit of her dress and gave the train one final fluff. As she took a step back, Kayla slowly turned toward her. There she was. Standing in her white, stunning wedding dress. A moment a mom thinks about all her life. The day has finally arrived.
All her mom could say was “beautiful!”
Kayla had her bridesmaids outside the room, so she could do a big reveal with them. These are some of my favorite moments on a wedding day. We lined each girl up, eyes closed, waiting for Kayla to tell them to open them. She took a final breath, and then let them know. Emotions instantly flooded each of their faces.
Tears. Smiles. Shock.
Kayla was the most beautiful bride! These girls have loved her for years. Grown up with her. Learned from her. Laughed with her. And so much more. They couldn’t believe the day she had been dreaming of for so long was finally here. With the man she couldn’t live with out. Each bridesmaid was so happy for her and what was about to come!
This was just the first of many first looks.
Kayla did one with her dad and also did one with Steven. Each one so special and so unique. Complete happiness on each of their faces. It just showed how much love there was on that day.
I have loved every moment with Kayla and Steven.
From their absolutely stunning engagement session at Overlook Park, to this beautiful wedding day at
Riverdale Manor, each moment was one to remember. Kayla and I instantly connected at the engagement session, and the friendship just grew from there. It was a little slower with Steven, but the friendship easily grew, and we were constantly cracking jokes at each other all throughout the entire wedding day!
These are the relationships I hope to have with each of my #hmpcouples. I could honestly talk forever about how incredible these two and their entire day was, but I think I’m going to let their photos do all the talking! It only seems right because that’s just how amazing their day was. I hope you see all the joy and celebration in these memories like I do!
