I have a confession. I have been hoarding this wedding like a new celebrity mom hoards their new babies from the paparazzi. (How’s that for drama and being descriptive?)
Why? Because these two are just so precious, and I feel like I’m exposing how perfect they are. 100% a ridiculous concept, but it’s the truth.
Remember Abby and Clay’s engagement session? I think it’s still one of our very favorites. Their energy as a couple, their natural connection, how content they are just being together, all of the above made for an amazing engagement session.
These love birds tied the knot in May at Mallard’s Croft. Mallard’s Croft provided the perfect backdrop of rolling hills, sunflower fields, and a classic farm style twang that Clay and Abby desired.
Abby got her dress from the wonderful Barefoot Bride, and I nearly fainted when I saw it. The delicate lace folded over Abby’s shoulders so romantically, and it photographed beautifully. Abby and Clay’s florals were done by the talented Holly and Ivy.
As cliche as it sounds, my favorite moment of the day was Clay’s face when he saw Abby walking up the hill from the barn. They didn’t see each other before the ceremony, and I’m sure they would both agree, that moment was one they will always remember. A close second to Clay’s reaction seeing Abby, were Clay’s vows to Abby. Rarely do I get emotional anymore during ceremonies (simply because I am too focused to do so) but I remember hearing Clay’s vows thinking “well, damn. He’s killing it right now.”
“”I promise to hike every trail, stand under every waterfall, and sleep under every constellation with you under God’s creation, as often as we are able. I promise to always be physically, emotionally, and spiritually available to you as we enjoy and endure this life together…..”
Just a few words from Clay’s vows ^^^ I mean………..
I’ll stop with the chattiness so you can get to the goods.
Clay and Abby, a giant thank you and plenty of hugs for letting us capture these memories for you. Enjoy.
