I love this wedding for multiple reasons. First and foremost, the couple won me over at hello! Chad & Cori are the kindest, sweetest, friendliest, cutest, etc, etc, etc couple ever! I am thankful for couples such as these. But let’s not focus on how much I love and appreciate them, instead let me share with you some of the sweet moments from their wedding day!
Here’s some things that I LOVED… first and foremost, the location! Are you kidding me? A historic, bright yellow, ranch home overlooking the fields of Clovis. It was breathtaking and dreamy, perfectly Cori. Such an excellent backdrop.
I loved hearing Cori’s laughter with her maids. Her joy is contagious and anyone near her could feel her excitement! And Chad with his guys, priceless. They were a goofy bunch and so easy to work with! A favorite moment, when Chad sent his best man up for a photo shoot with Cori. Let me back up, the plan was for c&c to have their picture taken before the ceremony but to never see one another so they stood on either side of a pocket door. What ended up happening was the best man holding Cori’s hand, her eyes were full of joy, his were full of the thought of cooties, and then he stepped from around the door to face her. She screamed and was horrified! Everyone had a HUGE laugh. It was awesome. Don’t worry, we did have the real pocket door moment with the bride and groom. :)
Cori’s hair, makeup, and dress were absolutely beautiful! She had a fantastic team (Ali Hines did her hair, Dara perfected her makeup, and the dress came from Madeleine’s in Clovis)! I wish my hair looked as fabulous as hers on my wedding day.
I loved their candy table, the books, birds and flowers that adorned the tables, the band that played for the reception (one of Cori’s dreams and must haves for her big day), the engagement pictures that we took all over the place, and the multiple signs telling about their life and journey. It was a perfect day and we made sure to end it with a sparkler exit.
I want to also say a HUGE thank you to Rachel McNamara for assisting me on this magnificent day! Without her I don’t know how I would have been able to capture all of those lovely details and special moments.
