married | cody & seth

It was hot.  Like, h-o-double-t hot.  When I stopped by the Rock Quarry to take pictures of the site before heading to where Cody was getting ready, a few gray clouds loomed overhead and my prayers continued to ask for no rain during the ceremony.  Well, God certainly heard that prayer!  Not only was there no rain but the sun was blazing.  As we waited outside for the ceremony to begin, Seth was glistening, not from nerves, but from the heat pouring from the sun.  But, I think he would tell you that it was worth it.  Or at least that's what the smile on his face said when he saw his bride walk into view.

Cody and Seth's laid back and natural style was seen everywhere you looked.  And it was gorgeous.  The rustic tables that held glass bottles of lemon, cucumber, and mint water were perfect with the outdoor setting (as well as for the guests, wedding party, and photographer!).  The J.Crew attire that the wedding party wore was fabulous.  The simplistic center pieces at the reception at Huguenot Loft had Cody and Seth's names written all over them.  Even the small rustic table where the couple shared their first meal as husband and wife fit perfectly with the theme.

Sharon Smith of On Top of the Table did a fantastic job, not only with coordinating the wedding, but with the flowers as well!  This woman is so talented and I loved getting to work with her.

Cody... who would have thought that a year after our venture to Peru that, instead of pouring concrete, playing with children and singing Soy Libre at the top of our lungs that we'd be standing outside at a park in Greenville as you married your best friend??  I've loved getting to see snippets of your life over the past year and how God has worked in all of it.

Cody and Seth, thank you so much for the honor of sharing your wedding day with you. A thousand blessings as you return home from Costa Rica to begin your life together as husband and wife!

Loved her J.Crew wedding dress.

Cody, you are stunning.

The wedding party looked hawt in their J.Crew ensembles.

A Sharon Smith floral creation... didn't I tell you she was great?

I just love the Rock Quarry.

Mucho thanks to my friend Holly Stoy for all of her help before, during and after the ceremony... as well as for snagging this shot!

We snuck off after the ceremony (in a white stretch lemo) and snagged some pictures of the bride and groom.

Y'all are just amazing.

I know this idea isn't original, but I love everyone's expressions in this picture!

This is the second time I've shot at the Huguenot Loft and I loved it even more the second time around as I watched Cody and Seth's first dance.

I saw this idea from another photographer who had posted some images on Facebook (and I so wish I could remember who had posted it!) and wanted to give it a try.  Cody and Seth were gracious enough to let me try it. Thanks for trusting me, you two!
