I have been so excited for this wedding for SO long! These two have been patiently watching all of my wedding blog posts at the Rayne Run Barn now, all year long.
Jillian and her Stepdad shared such a loving first look, while her mom and sister overlooked on the deck of the barn. After that we took a few family portraits, and got ready for the ceremony. Cody waited at the end of the aisle for Jillian, and Jeff walked her down. The flower girls and ring bearer were so dang cute! I took about a thousand pictures of them all day!
After the ceremony, we found a few great spots for portaits. My favorite part! Cody and Jillian were so sweet together. I didn’t even have to tell him to “nuzzle” or “kiss her neck” he was a pro!
Once we finished portraits of the bride and groom, it was VERY important to these two that we get a shot of them doing a burnout in the truck with the bridal party. We drove down the road a bit, to find a spot for our picture, and it was hilarious!
After that, we headed to the reception, where the bride and groom were greeted with confetti, and cheers. The reception was so much fun! They cut their cake, shared first dances, and Jillian surprised her mom with a first dance. Once again, it was one of those moments I was holding back tears!
They did the traditional bouquet toss, garter toss, and bridal dance! It’s always a blast watching the guests dance with the bride! After a few water breaks, and party dancing, we snuck outside to take a couple of shots at sunset. It was absolutely stunning with the leaves and the pink sky. Honestly guys, I didn’t edit that photo too much. It was perfect. After that, we said our goodbyes!
Cody and Jillian, I am so happy you two have found eachother. I just love the way to two look at one another. I know your love runs deep, and I am so honored to have documented your wedding day for you! Thank you so much for letting me in, and I hope you two have many, many years of happiness!
