A wedding fit for a modern-day princess is the best way I can describe Chris and Cassie’s wedding day. From the gorgeous gown (and tiara of course) down to the hot pink chucks, Cassie put together the most gorgeous day! The details weren’t the only fun part of the day, their family and friends made sure these two were properly celebrated.

I like to do my blog posts in chronological order. Today I’m making an exception and starting with my favorite photo just cause I love it so damn much.

The day started at Cassie’s parent’s house where she got ready with her bridesmaids. Love, love, love her dress!

After the ladies got dressed, we headed over to check in  with the guys. These groomsmen were fun!

I stay at the front of the church during the processional and my second shooter stays in back. Gotta give credit where credit is due. Liz, you captured this moment perfectly!

Just a little side note here on what these two are signing. This church has a book that they have every couple sign their names in after they get married. It’s over 100 years old!

Well this was one hell of a first dance. They had a perfectly choregraphed dance to Dan + Shay’s From the Ground Up

Favorite/Most Memorable Moment of the day?

Funniest moment of the day?

When the best man and grooms men did the Titanic lift. 

Any advice for couples currently planning their wedding?

Take time for the two of you! And your guests are there for you don’t sweat the little details. Be sure to go on a honey moon right after!! 

Honeymoon plans?
