Haley and Clinton met with us over some local beer and we hit it off immediately. Haley has a dream of becoming a wedding coordinator/planner and so we knew there would be a TON of gorgeous details! And of course, she did not disappoint! Creating a stunning modern take on a Great Gatsby theme. There was gold everywhere! (ALL the heart eyes!!!) We were so honored to shoot this special day and so happy with how everything turned out. Here are a few of our favorite images! Enjoy!
What do you love most about each other?
Haley - "I love his work ethic, he is one of the most dedicated and hardest workers I know! He loves to provide for us and takes a lot of pride in doing so! I also love that he is able to put up with me!"
Clint - "I love her smile, it lights up every room and can instantly change your mood."
Why did you choose the date and/or time of year of your wedding?
We knew we wanted an outdoor ceremony, so it being cool outside was a must. February tends to be much cooler with beautiful weather. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day on our wedding day!
What was the most memorable part of the wedding day for each of you?
Haley - "This one is hard, I feel like every moment was so special in it's own way. However, one of my favorite moments was during our "Last Dance" to Chris Stapleton's version of Tennessee Whiskey. Everyone had been cleared from the venue and it was just us on the dance floor after such an amazing evening!"
Clint - "The most memorable part for me was watching my then, soon to be wife, walk down the aisle to me and accept me as her husband."
One of our personal favorite parts was having the GrandMothers be the Flower Girls! Seriously the best trend of the last few seasons we have seen!
What song did you walk down the aisle to? At Last by Etta James
What was your first dance song? Leather and Lace by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley
Do you have any advice for couples currently planning a wedding?
Remember to enjoy the process and that it is all about you! Who cares if someone else just had a wedding with the same colors or song as you want. Don't plan a wedding that isn't true to you just because it may be popular or over used!
Anything else you want to mention?
