Payton + Laramie Priest

I was so excited for Payton & Laramie’s wedding day on August 31st, 2019. The day was just as I expected. Beautiful, FUN, and full of laughter and joy from the bride and groom. The day was so smooth, easy, and full of celebration. The bright florals, and contrast of color against the elegance and timelessness of the black dresses + tuxes was absolutely perfect. It went beautifully with Payton’s timeless/modern dress (which I am OBSESSED WITH!!). Before the ceremony, I was taking photos of all the generations of marriage that contributed to this day happening for Payton and Laramie… photos of grandparents & parent’s wedding days. As I was doing this, Payton’s grandfather was sitting there and he charmingly commented about “that handsome fellow” in his wedding photo. He also talked about his late wife and how beautiful she was. I think my favorite photo of the whole evening is of him holding his wedding photo. Gosh… that alone. I just love photography. I love the power it holds, and that was a moment for me! The ceremony came and Laramie was overcome with emotion and excitement he waltzed his way down towards his bride (a bit early), but it made everyone giggle and join in his excitement. The ceremony was beautiful, heartfelt, and personal… I love it when officiants really bring in a couple’s story and tailors the ceremony to the bride and groom. It makes it so special! After the ceremony, we had the softest, most lovely light to finish out photos with! The couple was announced into their reception & kicked the night off with cake & dancing, so that they could dance ALL night long and not miss a beat. This group was a dancing crew and so so fun to photograph. Hannah with Eberely Brooks did a phenomenal job coordinating/planning the whole day, and executed the bride and grooms dreams. The whole day was wonderful & I’m so grateful to have photographed it for the new Mr. & Mrs. Priest!! Congratulations my friends. I hope you had the MOST MAGICAL week in Italy!! <3
