Where do you even start with a rockstar couple like Mallory and Kelly?
I guess where it all started. Kelly (boy) and Mallory both went to high school with John and I. They are one of the very few high school sweethearts we know who have been together longer than we have. Kelly was in the band (and he RULED, can I say that?) and Mallory was a color guard. Their sweet love story makes me want to write a song. I had a Spanish class with Kelly with one of my all time favorite teachers, Mr. Afan. Since there were two Kelly’s in that class, Mr. Afan made me pick a Spanish name. I was Veronica and Kelly got to be Kelly. We got to do a lot of group work, and I remember Kelly was SO smart. Sweet Mallory (who I am absolutely obsessed with) was in every one of my homeroom classes. In high school, I remember thinking of her as intelligent, pretty, and shy. I was probably talking obnoxiously loud, and she never would have got a word in anyways.
Mallory and I are SO similar in so many ways. Even our dresses reminded me of each other. She loves Taylor Swift as freakishly much as I do, and she too is an entrepreneur. Mallory is one crafty lady. Aside from making the cutest pastries you ever did she, she also sells the cutest monogramed/personalized items. Mallory has been SUPER supportive of our little business since the day it opened. I was secretly wishing she’d ask us to capture her big day, and luckily she did.
Fun fact: Kelly is actually a twin, and so is Mallory’s mom. I’m already placing bets on how ADORABLE these Lovelace twins will be. In high school, I could never tell Kelly apart from his twin Kevin. I’d walk down the hall as we changed classes and go, “Are you Kelly?” and Kevin would just yell “NOOOOOO!” and keep walking. Hahaha, I’m sure twins get sick of being mistaken for the other, but I’ve always adored Kelly AND Kevin.
Mallory and Kelly, we feel so incredibly honored to have been a part of your story. You guys are truly an example of love prevailing, and we’re SO thankful we got to witness page 1 of your love story!
A special thanks to Jimmy and Toni of VMWeddings Studio for rockin’ and rollin’ all day with us, and letting us use one of your lights for the AWESOME dramatic black and white image towards the end of this post!
You guys enjoy!
Let me back up a bit. Emarie and Daniel got married at Spring Creek Ranch last October. (Yes, I realize I am blogging their wedding over six months later, what can I say?)
I remember when Emarie inquired with me, I told her that her wedding was on my birthday, and expressed how happy John and I would be to celebrate with her on her special day. Never in a million years would I have expected her to remember that, or go out of her way entirely to make me feel special. (BUT OH DID SHE, just wait, you’ll see!)
Emarie, Daniel, and both of their families are incredible people. Both Emarie and Daniel have GIANT, beautiful families. So beautiful, you almost question how such attractive folks can all be related. On top of being “poster families,” each and every one of them love the Lord, and it’s clearly evident for all to see. Like most of our couples, Emarie and Daniel have servant’s hearts. They truly are some of the most wonderful people we’ve ever met, and we feel so blessed that they allowed us to be a part of their day.
Emarie and Daniel hit the jackpot in terms of weather on their special day. The day went on without a hitch thanks to Toni from Spring Creek. She truly is the best piece of mind for a bride/bride’s family on a wedding day. I wish I would have known about her when we got married. One of the first things John and I noticed about Emarie and Daniel’s wedding day was the stunning florals done by the Flower Girls. I was so overwhelmed (in the best way possible) by the textures, colors, and thoughtfulness, The Flower Girl’s incorporated into E+D’s wedding. Emarie’s gorgeous gown from Maggie Louise Bridal couldn’t have been more perfect for an early fall wedding. Emarie was simply glowing all day.
Emarie and Daniel, one thing John and I love the most about you both is how although you love each other so passionately, you still love the Lord more. (It’s so blatantly obvious for all to see!) You’ve taught us more than you could imagine! Thank you for giving us the complete honor of capturing your special day. We adore you both so much.
Let me paint the scene for you:
Jamie is a nurse, and Spenser is a flight paramedic. So on top of both of them being extremely good looking, (hello, I can’t wait to see their offspring) they are both wildly intelligent, and both clearly have servant’s hearts.
Let’s back up for just a second. John and I went to high school with Jamie. Jamie and I cheered together through high school, and I feel I speak for most when I say Jamie is a true leader. She worked hard, was always focused, and seemed to take on new tasks as if she were wired knowing how to do them. Jamie’s sweet disposition, and her heart of pure gold has to be just a few reasons why anyone who’s anyone adores Jamie.
Although I’ve now only met Spenser twice, I can totally see how perfect he is for Jamie. In fact, John and I believe Jamie has met her match with Spenser. They are both so intelligent, it’s good that they have each other to challenge one another, in a friendly, healthy way of course.
You would think it would be absolutely impossible to be attractive, intelligent, AND hilarious, but this power couple truly has it all. When we arrived to meet up with Jamie and Spenser for their engagement session, Spenser mentioned he had just gotten his front tooth fixed. Me being the absolute teeth obsessed person I am, (I swear, teeth problems are the worst problems to have) I asked Spenser to elaborate. Hilariously, he informed us that things got a little silly at his bachelor party, and he accidentally hit a counter and his front tooth chipped. Luckily, the dentist did an amazing job, and even my obsessive self couldn’t tell.
Jamie and Spenser are getting married at the end of this month, and we cannot wait to be a part of it!
You guys enjoy!
Hailee and Keith, or as we like to refer to as Michael Cera and Miranda Lambert, are pretty freakin’ boss.
To be completely honest, we are so blessed to be able to work with the most amazing individuals in existence. Obviously, Hailee and Keith are no exception. They are adorable, high energy, stylish, and dog lovers. Basically, our soulmates.
These two sweet kids are one HECK of a couple. They both have full time jobs, they are both in school getting their masters, AND planning a wedding at the stunning, Spring Creek Ranch.
We happened to get lucky and scored one of the most gorgeous days I’ve seen so far in 2015. Sweet Hailee and Keith were seriously dressed to impress, with complimenting colors and all.
Hailee loves J.Crew like I love San Francisco. Her J.Crew loving heart beamed throughout the entire session. These two are so genuine which made working with them so easy and natural.
We absolutely cannot wait for your big day this coming September, Hailee and Keith! You guys make us so happy!
