When I arrived for Courtney and Codyâ€™s day, I was expecting the usual chaotic buzz that comes with last minute wedding preparations. Â Instead, I walked into a room filled with family and friends laughing, teasing, and smiling without any worries or concern. Â I think it comes from being women and families who have known each other long and been through a lot together: weddings and babies, victories and losses. Â There was a familiarity between them, a sense of knowing what needed to be done without having to ask.
Throughout the afternoon I noticed how attentive everyone in the bridal party was, and how humbled Courtney and Cody were to have such a loving circle with whom to share their day. Â Even with a large guest list, everything about the day felt personal – the ceremony, the speeches, and the interactions between everyone in attendance. Â When the church is filled to standing room only, there is no question of if there is love there. Â There is so much love that the building is bursting at the seams to contain it. Â It was a blessing to document your day, Courtney and Cody; cheers to many happy adventures ahead!
