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).

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.

first look

These are always the sweetest moments!

the ceremony

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.

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.
