2017 provided a lot of growth for my business. And to say I am thankful for every Bride that wholeheartedly believed in me is an understatement. I have been saving this blog for a couple of months, only because I didn't want it to get lost in the hustle and bustle of busy season.
Christy and Mikey are two people that I have grown to love like I've known them since day one. I can't say I have met anyone quite like them. I remember walking to my car the night of their wedding feeling some kind of way. Their day was absolutely, positively perfect, I will tell you more about it shortly, but I knew that I wouldn't see them nearly as often as I had the months leading up to their wedding. It was only a couple of days later I got a message from Christy saying that she too was sad it was all over and that she just wanted to have do more photoshoots with me. Here we are, less than a month or so after their wedding day and we are already starting to plan their first anniversary session - eleven plus months in advance! To me, if Southern Weddings contacted me and said they wanted to put my face on the front of their magazine, I would feel the exact same way as I did whenever my Brides say they want to work with me again and again. The ULTIMATE compliment. This is the empire I always hoped to build. One that has my Bride's happily sharing my name and looking for ways to continue to work together.
And then she says, "let's get together for lunch soon." Not only did I gain a client, but also a friend!
The morning of the Chubb wedding the weather suddenly decided, I think I will take it easy today. It was a cool 70 degrees all day. And for it being in September, that is very Heaven-like to me. Christy woke up with a gift from her Groom waiting for her. Inside was a card and a note from Mikey saying that he had a limo on it's way to get her and the girl's. That they were going to ride to the wedding venue in style today. HOW STINKING SWEET?! It get's better though (keep reading)!
Christy literally looked like a Boho Goddess. Her braided wavy hair - THE DRESS - and every other detail in between. There is absolutely no wonder Mikey had tears rolling when she walked down the aisle. Men, take note. He told me, as he was getting himself ready, that he wore his heart on his sleeve. And does he ever.
I am all about emotion, especially if it comes from a guy!
This was my first wedding at Castle Farms in Snow Hill and I'm not sure that one will ever top this one. Ever. Walking into that tent was breath-taking. Flower's filled the air and the tables. Wreaths were hung on the string lights that criss crossed over the dance floor. Wooden farm tables and cross-back chairs. Should I continue? Because I feel like that right there is enough. To see Christy's vision come to real life was a feast for the eyes.
What I have to say the most about these two is that they really, really, really, REALLY enjoyed their day. Christy danced the entire night, Mikey sang with a microphone in hand, they both crowd-surfed and everyone was fed hot fresh donuts before they left. It was great.
Mr & Mrs Chubb, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!!
