alyssa and shelby | brentwood wedding photographer

he smiled, rubbed his sweaty palms, and laughed excitedly as he waited for the moment.  he knew she was right behind him, but he couldn’t turn around until she touched his shoulder and signaled it was time.  time to gaze into her eyes.  time to admire the face that he’d be waking up next to for the remainder of his days.

from the moment he turned to see her, all the nervous jitters that were present in the morning hours immediately disappeared.  they were right where they belonged…together.  the day was a fairytale.

what started as an awkward high five has blossomed into something truly beautiful between alyssa and shelby.  and anyone that knows these two, knows that they are perfect for each other.  their wedding day was a beautiful testimony of their love for their Savior, and for each other.

alyssa and shelby, i can’t thank you enough for inviting me to share in your special day.  i pray God’s blessing on your marriage and wish you a lifetime of love!

alyssa’s gorgeous dress – looked like it was custom designed just for her!

alyssa and shelby decided to do a first look – for which i was so thankful!  it gave them the perfect opportunity to spend some time together before they became the center of attention, and gave us time to get some great photos before the ceremony began.

they were both excited, but i have never seen a groom so giddy. :)

aren’t these two the cutest couple?!

we’ve had such a blast getting to know alyssa and shelby that, of course, we’d enjoy their friends just as much.  we were right!

amazingly gorgeous arrangements by jory’s flowers

golden hills community church provided the perfect venue for their exchange of vows.

they had one of the cutest cake toppers i’ve seen to date – atop a delicious creation from mike’s pastry shop

we invited a third photographer to join us for the day, and she was absolutely fabulous!  she backed me up when reece was working elsewhere, and did a fantastic job capturing details.  i could definitely get used to a three-person team…thank you, jana!!
