The first time I met Mackenzie and Kyle was during their engagement session this past winter. We were greeted with the coldest of wind chills and snow quite a few inches high that made all our hands – well pretty much numb – but these two had smiles on their faces the entire time. I remember we chatted about how when their wedding day would come, the weather would be the exact opposite, and boy we were right!
The morning of October 5th, there were barley any clouds in the sky. The sun was shining down brightly as Mackenzie and her girls were helping her into her dress, oohing and awing about how truly radiant she looked. Later that afternoon Mackenzie and Kyle shared a private first moment under a beautiful tree. As they hugged, kissed, and teared up…the nerves all seemed to wipe away the moment they were in each others arms.
That evening, friends and family shared stories about how Mackenzie and Kyle first met, and the moment they knew their relationship was the real deal. Laughter, cheers, and a throw down dance party rounded off the night at Shadow Lake Ranch in what was truly one of the most fun evenings of the year.
Mackenzie and Kyle, I just wanted to take a second and thank you both for allowing us the opportunity to photograph your first day of marriage. I truly hope you have the best time in St. Lucia and I’m wishing you nothing but an absolutely incredible first year + many years to come! Cheers to the best day ever!
A massive shout out to the incredible vendors who helped make this day one amazing success!!!
