MOODY HISTORIC SHADY LANE WEDDING

Elizabeth and Dave’s moody historic shady lane wedding was certainly filled with their personalities and style. Elizabeth was super intuitive with good details. She wanted to make sure that they showcased details that made their guests really say “oh wow, that’s so them.” Every single corner was dripping in details, and Elizabeth and Dave kept saying how thankful they were for their day going on without a hitch.

There were so many special moments that were incorporated on Elizabeth and Dave’s wedding day. There were definitely some things that were a surprise, but also things that were planned. But every single moment fully encompassed the love of every single family member and friend.

Elizabeth’s grandfather means the world to her. I mean the whole entire world. So the moment when he first saw her was a tear jerker. I’m so thrilled that we were able to be present for this amazing moment. *Wedding tip* – if there are any special moments like this that are going to happen, try to be sure that your photographer is nearby!

This was another MAJOR special moment. Both Elizabeth and Dave both made it a priority that Elizabeth’s grandparents prayed over them before the ceremony. There was NOT a dry eye.

Guys! THIS MOMENT WAS HUGE. This is Elizabeth’s brother. And the second after the wedding ceremony, he broke down. Like 100% broke down and sobbed. I am thrilled that i was able to be present for this. These are the moments that are absolutely timeless.

We need to take a moment and focus on these florals. Splints and Daises is a magic worker and brought all of Elizabeth’s dreams to life!
