On a slightly rainy day this October, at Rock Bottom Pond, Paige and Derek said, “I do!” When my second shooter and I drove up we were greeted by the venue owner on a golf cart asking if we needed a ride. Yes please! When we walked in the beautiful house, we found the bride in the cutest robe touching up her mom’s hair. Cool as a cucumber, she offered us mimosas and we started photographing details. Across the way, we found the guys getting ready while enjoying a little football on TV.
Paige and Derek wanted to do a first look (yay!) and boy I’m glad they did! It was the cutest thing and we got some tears out of Derek. Understandably, Paige looked stunning.
Thankfully the rain held off the rest of the day and the new Mr. & Mrs. Smoak enjoyed a fabulous reception with friends and family! The attention to sweet and simple details was done with such care. From the dusty blue bridesmaid’s dresses to the lanterns on the reception tables, every little detail was perfection.
Derek & Paige – it was an honor to be there to capture your special day. Thank you for trusting us with these memories.
