When Hayley first emailed me I was so excited to find out that I was one of her first vendors that she was booking. She said ‘she knew she needed me as their photographer’. That is itself is the biggest compliment I think anyone can ever tell a photographer. I officially didn’t meet Hayley until her bridal session a few weeks before her wedding! However, I felt like I knew her my whole life & couldn’t wait for the wedding after her bridal session!
During her bridal session, we were talking about her wedding venue that she worked at & come to find out that it was a famous house from the ’70s because of its history! Me being the person I am & loving crime stories/shows I had to learn more about this house. Well, it was Cullen Davis house – he is famous for 2 murders & other crimes that he was completely acquitted for. I found this so interesting & honestly just wanted to explore the whole house. Stonegate mansion has since turned into one of the coolest/beautiful venues I have ever seen. There are so many amazing places for portraits & the ceremony/reception hall lighting is everything to me. So much natural light beams through the floor to ceiling windows.
Hayley & Ryan’s wedding was one for the books. Her attention to detail really killed the game. From her floral centerpieces to her wedding dress. Their day was filled with so much love to last a lifetime. I have never seen such a full ceremony/reception, I don’t think there was an empty chair in sight. Hayley really wanted to have a clean style with the bridal party so the bridesmaids wore black & the men wore all black tuxes, can you say ELEGANT. That’s exactly how I would describe their whole day, elegant. Their reception was popping all night & no one wanted to leave at the end of the wedding. That is what I call a wedding for the books! Congratulations, again you two! I hope you two are enjoying married life to its fullest!
