I’ll never forget the first time I met Macy. I ran into her at the Forsythia Festival right after she got engaged. She was so excited about getting married to her high school sweetheart, Will. And she was so excited to use me as her wedding photographer. I knew right then that we would have so much fun together! And we did. She and Will finally tied the knot on a gorgeous June day at Pineola Farms. Haley did Macy’s hair, which was really special because she used to do Macy’s hair for pageants.
Macy’s gorgeous gown.
Loved Macy’s beautiful Badgley Mischka shoes.
Macy’s got such a cute and classic Southern vibe. She looked gorgeous in her satin Badgley Mischka heels and her cowboy boots.
Macy’s “something borrowed” was this fabulous jewelry from Bashinski’s where she used to work….nice to have some personal ties to fab jewelry!
Macy and Will’s bling!
Stacy was a great MOH helping her into the dress and the all the girls made sure she was hidden well when Will arrived!
The beautiful bride
We had fun with some parasols!
Kicking it in the cowboy boots.
Macy’s fab flowers were by Cindy Sauls.
Macy’s headpeice was by Twigs and Honey
Macy’s bouquet had some really sweet and sentimental touches. Her bouquet was wrapped in lace from her mom’s wedding dress, and she attached a locket with her dad’s picture in it. Even though he passed away many years ago, Macy still carried sweet memories and his picture with her on her special day.
All the girls carried bouquets of lavender to match their lavender dresses.
Pineola’s sunflower patch was in full bloom!
The flower girl also carried lavender!
What a handsome groom!
Had to have a fire truck for Fireman Will. How cool is this vintage truck?? Delise and Paul Knight of Pineola Farms always find the coolest vehicles, and this is one of my favs!
This is one of my favorite parts of Macy and Will’s story. Remember Macy and Will’s engagement session post? Macy explained that she picked Will out of the yearbook in 6th grade and wrote “My Future Husband” on his picture. And what do you know? She was right!!
Will and his guys
This is another one of those crazy wedding day things that happened….when Will was a senior in high school his teacher had him write a letter to himself that would be sent to him 5 years later and this letter arrived the morning of his wedding day! Isn’t that crazy! I would say from reading the letter that he is right where he planned to be, and God has truly blessed him. He had taped a penny from the year he was born into the letter and Macy ended up using it as her “sixpence in her shoe!”
He definitely found “someone to love.”
I love this shot of Macy right before she went down the aisle…taking it all in!
Macy and Will chose some really cute details for their ceremony. Instead of programs, they listed the wedding party on chalkboards. They also had candles in Mason jars displayed on this gorgeous carved birch log.
This little ring bearer was too cute!
Macy’s step daddy, giving her away on this gorgeous sunshiny day.
I loved this little rainbow flair…since she walked down the aisle to somewhere over the rainbow!
Macy and Will decided to have a sand ceremony to represent blending their 2 lives. The white sand is from their favorite vacation spot in Florida and the black sand is from the mission trip to El Salvador they went on together over this past Christmas.
Their cousins sang during the sand ceremony.
Sweet kiss to say “I do!”
The ring bearer was really excited about this!
Mr. and Mrs. Will Davis
A few more kisses for the newlyweds.
I love a thumbprint guest book, custom cozies and when brides use their engagement photos to decorate!
Had to take a group shot with the firetruck!
Macy and Will had such a cute reception. Macy loves A Midsummer’s Dream. So she wanted to include some touches from the play. Macy did a lot of DIY briding and made all the lovely table decorations. The butterfly centerpieces were cut from pages of the play, and the bouquets of lavender were inspired by the play as well. Alexa Hunt did all the yummy food. Don’t those shrimp cocktail shooters look delish?
Lisa Shepley of Lisa Mae Cakes did a great job of recreating the birch tree with Macy and Will’s initials carved in it. How cute is that?
Since Will is a fireman, of course Lisa created a fab fire helmet for his groom’s cake….it looked soooo real.
and sweet daddy/daughter dance.
After the sweet first dances, the whole crowd danced the night away.
After a trip through the sparklers and some sweet goodbyes, Macy and Will headed off on the firetruck.
Macy and Will, it was an honor to be a part of your special day. Can’t wait to show you more!
