Oh me . . . I’ve been so excited to post Ben and Emily’s June wedding on the blog!!! It was a gorgeous day all around and the day’s events left me feeling very satisfied at the end of it all. There was giddy excitement, laughter, sentimental moments, and even a few tears. This mix of emotion ALWAYS makes my day. Ben and Emily’s love is absolutely magnetic as you will see in their pictures. Both come from similar backgrounds as their immediate families are HUGE and both very kind. I couldn’t have imagined a better day for this couple! Best wishes as they begin their new journey together in North Carolina :) Anyway, let’s move on to the pictures shall we. Although I posted quite a few favorites, more can be found HERE upon their release.
Emily began her day at Kaleidoscope Salon.
Loved her hairstyle!!! Nothing like I’ve ever seen :)
Gosh, I just love attentive moms!
Next, we headed over to the Chattanoogan Hotel where Emily’s bridesmaids were awaiting her return. HOW CUTE ARE THEY?! P.S. Love when brides give something to their bridesmaids to match while getting ready. Oooo . . . which reminds me . . . check out this SITE!
Loved Emily’s dress from Atlanta’s Say Yes to the Dress Store!
Emily with her two best friends Kayla and Lacy.
A fun moment with her sister Katie . . .
Getting Emily into her dress became a community effort :)
Outstanding make-up job by Candace Hernandez . . .
Beautiful bouquet by Humphrey’s!
STUNNING! WOW WOW WOW!
Katie, Angie, and Camille with the bride . . . ALL SISTERS! What a lucky dad! This was taken at the Choo Choo.
Loved that there was a limo :)
Next and final stop was the Chattanooga Golf and Country Club.
Waiting patiently there was the handsome groom, who is also HILARIOUS!
Sound Force, Showtime Event Rentals, The White Table, Rent-All Store, and Soirees made a spectacular presentation for the ceremony and reception. The big reveal . . . Married! I call this next sequence of pictures “Made for Each Other.” LOL! Gorgeous settings . . . Perhaps my fav!
Oh my goodness . . . the details at this reception!!! Cake by the Cake Boutique . . . so so pretty! MAGICAL . . .
A sweet toast given by Emily’s sister . . . Of course, here is where I could fall into a puddle of tears at my desk seeing this fun yet sentimental dance with dad . . . Mother-son dance :) Somehow this group of girls rocked the long and dramatic song It’s All Coming Back to Me Now by Celine Dion on the dance floor. Obviously I was quite entertained and fell in love with them instantly as this was the first CD I ever saved up for! Honestly, how did they know?! ;) And they’re off to happily ever after!!!! A million HUGS!!!!
