Fayetteville Wedding Details and Story of Lydia and Caul

Hey everybody!

Lydia and her wedding designer/coordinator, Jessica from Finishing Touch Event Design, have been planning this wedding and reception for about 18 months, and it shows! Every detail was so meticulous and perfect... from the custom lined envelopes that invited guests to the wedding to the unbelievable getaway car that took them away from the ceremony (and everything in between). 

Jessica will be doing a blog on these fab pieces on her blog soon - you'll want to see that!

Oh, our gorgeous bride... and that dress!

Meanwhile, Caul had his own way of enjoying the getting ready process.

As far as first meetings/first looks go... this is a perfect as it gets.  Lydia's eyes say it all.

Lydia had an amazing bridal party. They were silly pretty, and pretty silly.

Lydia has so many priceless expressions.  I felt it was my duty to capture each and every one of them throughout the wedding day.

And then they were off! I shot this image in a way that made the sun burst... a cool little trick of the trade as we zoomed off in our fancy vintage car.

Okay... I know you're excited to see the reception. Tomorrow, the wait is over! In the meantime, head to the Finishing Touch Event Design blog for more!

Talk to you soon,
