Norman & Mallory became husband & wife on the perfect fall day. And when I say it was perfect, it truly was. These two have known each other since youth but a few years ago that friendship turned into something more beautiful & God orchestrated. Their love for Christ showed in every moment of their wedding day & it was truly an honor to witness.
Arran Farm Events was the venue that stole the bride's heart. It provided the perfect place to get ready, say I Do & then dance the night away all in one spot. (Photographers everywhere rejoice!)
*Loved their reaction to seeing Mallory for the first time. Now it's time for her to see her groom!
*Cheers coming from the upstairs. So cute.
Brotherly love at it's finest!
Every relationship between father & daughter is different, but this one reminded me of mine. It was such a special moment to capture. (*Trust me it was hard to keep it together!)
Mallory & Norman's ceremony was one of the sweetest I've witnessed. The groom's father fought back tears as he charged his son with the responsibility of leading his bride. And then a dear family friend led the two in their vows - which I confess made me cry. Oh how sweet God's plan for these two is! Finally their pastor lead in the exchange of rings & announced them as husband & wife!
*Love, love, love these moments right after the ceremony. It's the "we're married - can you believe it?!" feeling of excitement. Also, the Hopkins bridal party was the best!
Now let's celebrate the newlyweds!
Mallory's sister & matron of honor rapped her toast. Yeah, that's right. Rapped it. Fresh Prince of Bel Air style. It was awesome.
*Bonus pictures of the bride & groom. You're welcome ;)

*Personal note: I met Mallory many years ago while traveling around for youth camp. (Shout out to Mud Ministry!) And when I received a message from her asking me to capture her wedding day, I was excited to say the least. I remember Facetiming her one day to discuss details for the upcoming day & giggling like little girls as she told me about her man. Oh Mallory, I am so happy that you found the one that God had for you all along. I cannot wait to see how you glorify the kingdom in your marriage. You are incredible & one stunning bride!
