I’m going to keep the writing short for this post since it’s a LONG one :) Matt and Elyssa’s wedding launched off the Spring wedding season for me. April can be so touch and go with the weather but it turned out to be a beautiful day! It had been so long since I had seen them at their engagement session, I was so glad to meet up with them again! There are so many qualities that I love about this couple. They are so enamored with one another, their pictures just seem to have that “little something” extra. Elyssa literally was smiling ALL day! You’ll see below :) She just walks into a room and it lights up! This was my first time shooting at Baylor Chapel and it is quickly rising up on my list of favorite venues. Their reception at Miller Plaza was CRRAZZY fun! It felt like a multi-celebration as Elyssa and Matt were just matched for residency in Texas . . . TOGETHER! Elyssa will be specializing in pediatrics while Matt will continue his study of head and neck surgery. Eeek! Talk about a power couple! Anyhow, without further adieu, I present to you the WONDERFUL Dr. and Dr. Yantis:
We began the morning at Chattanooga’s historic Read House.Then, we made our way over to Elea Blake for make-up.Elyssa’s mom was even there to lend a hug :)Soon after, we made our way over to Baylor Chapel where Elyssa got dressed. Seriously, Elyssa is so adorable! She couldn’t stop smiling!Over yonder, Matt also was getting ready.
