When I first met Corby and Ben a year ago (or should I say re-met) to do their engagement photos, they were pretty carefree and willing to do whatever crazy ideas…except Ben wouldn’t drive fast down a dirt road in his fancy car….so that was kind of annoying…. ahha.
I spent the morning at the venue grabbing shots of the DIY decor Corby created, and as usual was so amazed at the thought and work that goes into a wedding day.
I arrived at Matt’s house where the guys were supposed to be getting ready, but instead, they were mowing down pizza and making fun of bens nose, and all those other things that go on at weddings. But there was still this vibe in the house- that everyone was ready to celebrate, and it was about damn time!
I glanced over to Ben “nervous?” He didn’t even stop for a split second to say “Nope, not at all.” This man knows. He knows who the love of his life is. He knows that every day he will be there for her, love her, protect her and guide her. This is what makes Ben a really great man.
I scattered around grabbing shots of all the guys getting ready, and watching youtube videos on bow ties as they were trying put them on (of course, right?) and grabbed a few shots of them celebrating on the front deck before I scooted over to Ben and Corbys house, where Corby would be already celebrating with her sisters and friends.
I arrived to the fresh scent of flowers, and giggling girls- you could see the excitement in Corbys eyes as she sat in front of the mirror to get her final hair piece set in place. Her bridesmaids were scattering around getting ready for the amazing day they were going to be a part of, and I was trying my best to stay a fly on the wall.
I walked around the house and found little things to snap pictures of, and followed corby outside for some fresh air to express how stunning she looked. She was ready to be Mrs. Sovie, and I was so happy for her!
Back in the house, the girls transformed and were out the door in a flash with me just moments ahead of them to check out the ceremony now that the guests had arrived.
The girls lined up at the side of the barn, Corby accompanied by her father…the bridal party started coming in towards the front of the ceremony. The music played beautifully as Corby made her way up the aisle with all eyes on her, of course. Stunning is not even the best word to describe how beautiful Corby looked. Her soul poured out of her eyes that day, and she was in her element, with her best friend at her side.
The ceremony was short, and sweet, and full of laughs and tears, and was everything these two wanted on their perfect day.
Pictures took place shortly before dinner in an overgrown apple orchard, and the rain broke long enough to grab hundreds of beautiful shots. I was so happy! Life, and love is GOOD.
Thank you so much for having me B & C.
I wouldn’t of wanted to be anywhere else, on such a beautiful day.
