There were so many moments during Casey & Christopher's engagement session ,where I thought to myself , "Their wedding is going to be so special. "
This past weekend I had the pleasure of capturing Casey and Christopher's engagement session and let me tell you something, they are truly amazing people! Casey and Christopher looked beautiful with the most beautiful light and perfect backdrop! Bok Towers , their sweet home , and glowing sunlight served as their backdrop and we are totally here for it!!
We are so grateful to have learned more about Casey and Christopher! I even got a chance to meet their fur babies and we're going to have to share at least one of their fur babies with you today! Lucy, Finn, and Alice expressed how much they admire their mom and dad. That to me says a lot about how caring they are and how big their heart is! You guys the more time I spent with Casey and Christopher, the more I wanted to spend the day the day with them! In the middle of enjoying our time together, I looked at Casey's hand and I was in pure awe because, her ring was just STUNNING! Casey told me her engagement ring was actually designed by her hubby to be,Christopher. Is that not the cutest and most romantic gesture!? Her ring is just a single testament of how caring and thoughtful they are to each other. I can go on and on about who they are and how adorable they were, but you should see for yourself! Look at the photos, I'm convinced they would of spent their entire day loving each other with or without me shooting their engagement session!
Shaun watched his bride come down the aisle on the arm of her grandfather, Peepaw. Two of the most important men in her life stood next to her and right in front of her. He gave his granddaughter away to her husband to be , with so much approval and love. The church was filled with not only their love and support for each other but the love and support of their family and friends. It wasn't until Nakiah's family sung "All of Me", that I began to tear up. My heart was so full because once again I had the opportunity to witness something so special happen right in front of me. I was in pure awe when they began to sing "Perfect" and "Why I love you". Nakiah Began to walk down the aisle, and I couldn't believe the sincere joy that filled the church's atmosphere. I felt at home!
"I now pronounce you husband and wife." The room roared with excitement and even more excitement as we got ready to celebrate at the reception. The reception displayed their true love , and that's their love for the Florida Gators. The Tables were set up with beautiful blue, orange, and with hints of Gold throughout. Don't tell my husband, but this Georgia girl almost became a Gators fan!
We all admired the attention to detail as we was danced and ate some of the town's most delicious dinner!
I could even feel my little foot tapping as they danced and shared laughs with the guests and bridal party. The tapping and dancing stopped briefly as Nakiah and Shaun shared announced they had a surprise announcement. Believe me we were all at the edge of our seats! All of the sudden there was a gasp of excitement heard across the room! Nakiah and Shaun shared with us that on this day they were actually celebrating their one year anniversary. The faces were of shock, laughter , and excitement. It truly was a celebration.
Watch out Brunswick, Georgia Nakiah and Shaun may be the new couple goals! Their story will continue to inspire others, I'm sure!
