- Southern Charm -
Like any good Southern love story, this magical day took place on a muggy July weekend, in Quinlan, TX.
We arrived that at the White Sparrow Barn to start capturing the gorgeous day and story of Haley and Kendall. I had the opportunity to use the venue this last January for a styled shoot which helped launch my photography career in a lot of ways, so it was exciting getting to come back to capture a story here. The venue, a towering white-washed barn, leads to so many incredible photos. I was so ecstatic to be shooting a real couple in such a gorgeous place!
Another exciting moment was just getting to work alongside the incredible team of vendors!
From Poppylane Design doing florals and setting up an incredible backdrop for the ceremony, to even the fun cotton candy machine at the reception by the Cotton Smith; it was a blast working alongside so many gifted, talented, and incredible individuals making the day so beautiful!
After capturing the beautiful details of the day, Mark Boatright and I set on capturing Kendall begin to get ready with his groomsmen. It's always a blast seeing how the wedding party celebrates with the bride and groom, this group of guys kept the energy up whether it was cracking jokes or setting up a game of Nerf basketball while waiting for the ceremony.
Shortly after, Haley and her bridesmaids arrived to do the final touches of hair / make-up and put on the dress. Everyone was quick to help each other with whatever was needed and it wasn't long before we were capturing all the beautiful dresses, hair + make up, and smiles around the venue!
Kendall and Haley made portraits easy for Mark and I as we took them along for photos. Haley looked stunning in her dress and Kendall made the classic navy suit look sharp. The colors they chose and details all stood out with the clean white backdrop of the venue. Plus all that natural light! From the first look to some quick portraits after the ceremony, it was such an incredible time creating some of my favorite photos with such a beautiful couple.
The ceremony held so many special moments as the story of Kendall and Haley was shared by three ministers, one being Kendall's father. It was special in so many ways seeing how close the families were and how tight of a relationship Kendall and Haley formed over the years of growing up together. Everything from the special music to how the ceremony was held kept it extremely personalized to their story which is always something beautiful to capture!
To wrap up the gorgeous day was the reception, where the stunning couple was celebrated by friends and family. The set up was incredible and it was amazing as always see everyone come together to help party with such a sweet couple!
Thank you Kendall + Haley for letting us be there to capture your beautiful day! It was so inspiring hearing your story and seeing how many friends and family came to celebrate. Everything from hearing about early memories to seeing you create new ones made the day one to remember!
