Pratt Place Wedding of Jordan and Travis

Hey everybody!

The story of Jordan and Travis' wedding day was super duper sweet.  Her beautiful blue accents where everywhere (hello gorgeous shoes - check the collage below!), and they also had some really sentimental pieces.  Whenever you see a ladybug in today's post, know that it's a symbol of Travis' recently passed mother.  I thought it was a lovely way to remember and honor her.

This bouquet... seriously.

I knew most of Jordan's bridesmaids before the wedding day, so getting them to be relaxed with my kookiness wasn't hard.  I love this relaxed portrait of the bride and her babes on the bed at Pratt Place Inn in Fayetteville.

Here, Jordan's mom is helping her daughter into her fabulous wedding dress. Jordan was all smiles, all day.

We did a first reveal with the bridesmaids that I was so crazy about.  We had them all turned around and Jordan snuck up behind... I gave the countdown... and then this...

Then of course we had to shoot a cutie pie pic of all these little darlings!

Then we did another first look, this time with the groom.  The maid of honor and matron of honor each pulled a door back as Jordan was waiting on the other side for Travis to look at her for the first time.  It turned out beautifully.

Then, it didn't take long for this to happen.  Such joy!

Then the boys were off to the ceremony.  In style.

This is one of my favorite moments from the wedding ceremony.  Let me tell you what happened.  The ring bearer (or, sign carrier in this case) was told by his mom "take this to Travis."  As he waited near the back, nervous, Travis walked to him and then was handed the sign.  Mission accomplished (and so cute!). Travis, going with the flow, carried the sign up his own aisle with the biggest smile on his face.

Our darling bride.

Oh, I forgot to tell you what happened. Mere got sick at the wedding and had to leave, so our talented Rachel came to the rescue.  So thankful for her!  And of course Jordan was a TOTAL SWEETHEART about it!  Crazy and scary, but thankful for the coolest clients in the world.

Ahhhh... this moment! The best!

Oh... SO MUCH MORE to share! Keep coming back!
