Shelbey + David are celebrating just TWO weeks of marriage since their wedding day at Sowell Farms‘ barn in Milton Florida!! Happy anniversary, you two! ;)
This wedding was number two in a double header weekend for me. AND it was another sweet couple with whom I go to church! (See Ashley + Warren’s wedding for the first wedding of this fab weekend). Shelbey had mega concerns with the rain projections early on. I mean this bride was on the verge of a baby meltdown y’all (if you’ve ever planned a wedding you know this is normal though! She just wanted her best day every!). Fortunately, she knew to listen to her hubby-to-be as well as her vendors who had everything well in hand…and she said a LOT of prayers along with the rest of us!
As you can see, the day was nothing short of perfect! Because God is AWESOME. Sunny skies all day long, and the best temperature possible to keep everyone comfortable. In all honesty the rain just a few days prior probably HELPED our weekend go so beautifully!
The happy tears started early on with Shelbey’s first look with her daddy. And once she and David got together with their wedding party for a group prayer, I was just lost in emotion! They did NOT share a first look until she walked down the aisle, so they instead stood back to back and hand in hand while they prayed over their marriage.
With a ceremony including a knot tying as well as communion, everything was oh so spiritual! And our own pastor was officiating the ceremony, so it kinda felt like a Sunday at church. :) After a fab portrait session with the new Mr + Mrs, we all got down and goofy during the reception! And ended the night with the cutest sparkler exit ever.
Daddy daughter first looks will always be my favorite. Sometimes I like them almost better than the bride and groom ones! Just something about a father giving his baby away that day…plus I have two daughters of my own, so it strikes a familiar chord!
