Wow! What a wedding! You’re probably going to get sick of hearing this but it’s so special for us to be a part of such an important day for people we grew up with! Emily and Kayla have known each other since elementary school and shared a passion for dance. Growing up together and celebrating Kayla & Nate’s forever was such an honor! She looked absolutely stunning and Nate looked just dapper.
Kayla definitely had a vision for her day, and man oh man did her and her vendor team bring it to life. We remember chatting with her beforehand and she said they were looking to have a classy, elegant celebration and that’s exactly what it was! We are OBSESSED with all of details and decor. So much thought went into even the tiniest things like their custom ring box. We had so much fun photographing all of her jewelry and other details. (Brides… this is your sign to have your details photographed on your big day! 😍). Outside of their personal details their decor was breathtaking. The gold accents and greenery is right up our alley, so we were swooning when we saw it all. Not to mention, Kayla and Nate shared the sweetest moment when they walked into the room before the reception. They wanted to see it all come together and we know they loved it. Kayla even cried because she was so happy to see her vision come to life.
For anyone who knows us personally, you know that we’re those crazy dog moms who have Instagram pages for our pups. 😇 So we were excited when Kayla and Nate decided that their fur baby, Javy, had to be a part of their day. They opted for something we’ve never thought of before… a first look with their dog! They had a close friend bring him to the venue when it was time for portraits and he was SO excited to see them when he realized they were there. Kayla and Nate’s faces just light up when they talk about him so seeing their smiles during that moment was precious. He even had a mini tux with a tie to match Nates!
We were honestly in awe all day long simply just watching Kayla and Nate. Especially during their ceremony, they were feeling a rollercoaster of emotions. There were lots of laughs and tears shared, but you could tell how excited they were to be getting married. Nate kept referencing that he asked Kayla to marry him multiple times a month leading up to their wedding day because he just couldn’t wait any longer. These two are the epitome of a couple who is madly in love and meant to be. The way they looked at each other and the frequent sweet gestures like holding hands were so sweet to witness. Our hearts can’t take it.
It’s safe to say that these two had an amazing day and an even better night celebrating on the dance floor with their loved ones. The dance floor was popping and their guests came to party! It was pretty epic.
Kayla and Nate, we are so glad that all your dreams came true for your wedding day. We hope you continue to have as much fun with each other as you did on your wedding day, and we hope you never stop holding hands and loving on each other. You two are the sweetest!
