tabor’s parent’s watched . . .
their son stand under the same tree they had been married under 24 years before.
Courtney, the soon-to-be Mrs. Belcher, got ready with her ladies in an upstairs studio of her aunt’s house. Sunlight spilled in as finishing touches were put on her bridal look. In just a few moments, she would be walking down the aisle to her high school sweetheart.
Tabor’s cousin fastened pearls on Courtney- the pearls belonged to their grandmother (pictured on the right).
the whole crew
These groomsmen photos were something else! I knew most of the guys from high school, so they had no problem being crazy & fun even in front of the camera.
The bridesmaids photos were not as wild, but lovely instead. I loved capturing all the girls and their excitement.
These are always the sweetest moments!
Smaller, intimate weddings are always so special. The laid-back feeling is my favorite. Courtney walked through two white doors and down the aisle to her soon to be husband. There were songs, prayers, laughter & tears. They tied a large rope hanging from the tree for their unity ceremony which was such a neat idea.
mr. and mrs. belcher
toasts to the newly weds
can we talk about the fact that these two cut their cake with a sword?
The mother-son dance
turned into a groomsmen-flashmob
the father-daughter dance
sweet as could be
Tabor and Courtney’s dance was next level. I seriously felt like we were watching a dancing with the stars performance.
we snuck away for a moment after the ceremony
to capture the joy between these two. As the sun set, friend and family danced and celebrated the start of forever for Tabor and Courtney.
