I met Courtney at the Lexington Bridal Expo back in March and fell in LOVE with her. She is a sweet, southern belle with a beautiful smile and a heart of gold!

I’ve been DYING to share these images with you guys! Her wedding was absolutely stunning. I was in awe of the greenery at the church, and then the reception at Kevin Lear on Main…this girl has serious style! Their ceremony had me in tears‚ÄĒevery song was perfectly selected and each word spoken was so meaningful. They even did a candle lighting ceremony, which I thought was the COOLEST, most unique thing ever. The symbolism gave me goose bumps!

Brian + Courtney, I am so happy for you guys and am SO thankful you guys chose me to photograph such a special day in your life. It was such a sweet celebration. I wish you both so much happiness for the rest of forever.

Enjoy some of my favorites.

OH! If you missed Courtney’s beautiful bridal portraits, you should DEFINITELY check those out here. (LOVE these two images from that session.)
