Jamie and Steven’s Wedding Day at Wisteria Cottage & Barn| Dana Arnold Photography

The Bride Jamie and The Groom Steven finish their first dance as husband and wife and walk there way to their sweetheart table. The seated guest hush as the father of the bride grabs the microphone and begins to talk. A tissue in hand, he talks about how at the wedding, he didn’t lose a daughter, be he gained a son and from the first moment he met Steven, he became a part of the family. Jamie is next to her husband, wiping away tears along with several guests as he continues on his speech and provides encouraging words of wisdom to the new married couple. He finishes with a hug to both Steven and Jamie and seats next to his wife, Tammy, both who are gazing at their daughter and now, their son-in-law as well.

Wedding Days are the days where my emotions run wild because, in one day, you will find me laughing and crying at the same time. Jamie and Steven’s Wedding Day was the first of my 2019 season and kicked off my season perfectly. Some of my favorite memories from this day…

  1. Both the bridal party and groomsman nailed the Confetti Shots and were troopers even though the confetti was sticking to us like glue. I am STILL finding pieces in my hair and camera bag!
  2. The first look between Jamie and her dad, Pat. There is no sweeter love than between a daughter and father and at that moment when he saw her dressed up, time stood still.
  3. Teaching some adults how to do the “Soulja Boy”: dance moves inside the barn while most of the guest hung out outside. Doing that dance with a camera on your is hard but having 11 adults laugh and join along with you to learn how the dance goes was indeed a funny moment I will never forget!
  4. The ceremony itself. Prayer is a powerful tool and when the guest raised their hands to bring in the love of God during a blessing was a moment that gave me goosebumps all over my body. The lord was with us at that moment and I have never felt more empowered.

Jamie and Steven hosted a wedding that was fun throughout the whole day. The bridal parties were goals because they are the people that will help you when times get tough, be there for you through the good and bad, and of course party with you like there is no tomorrow! The ladies were so sweet and Briana, the MOH was by far the best assistant I didn’t know I needed, and thanks to her, I got some killer shots! The groomsman were such gentlemen, eager and excited to get their photos taken, and even made my second shooter, Maddy, feel so comfortable at her first ever full wedding. As for the guest, they were friendly, easy to get along with, and full of joy and love!

Jamie and Steven…

Thank you for allowing me to capture your special day! You two are one of the kindest, outgoing, and joyful people I have ever met. You both were radiating with love from the moment we met at Brown’s for your engagement all the way to the end of your wedding day, and of course far beyond that. I loved serving you both and I hope you enjoy some of my favorite sneak peeks from this day <3
