If you looked at the forecast at any time during the week leading up to Kendyl and Daniel’s wedding, you would have seen a very high chance of rain on their wedding day. I had already prepared myself for having to do all their portraits indoors and I had a game plan in mind, but that didn’t keep me from praying that it wouldn’t rain. Their wedding day arrived and the chance of rain had dropped drastically but there was still a chance for pop-up storms. It was pretty crazy how we could see a pop-up storm heading our way and right before it would get to us, the storm would just disappear. This actually happened a few times that day and it was really cool to watch!
There were so many details of Kendyl and Daniel’s wedding that I absolutely loved. Kendyl’s bouquet was made of wooden flowers (yes…I said wood! they were gorgeous!) and she had heart shaped patches sewn into her wedding dress. One patch with her Granny’s handwriting and the other patch was her Mother’s. Kendyl’s grandmother passed away 2 years ago and her mom got her handwriting from a letter that she wrote to Kendyl. Kendyl and Daniel incorporated a lot of sentimental items into their day and I absolutely love it when couples do this. I couldn’t help but shed a few tears multiple times that day.
One of the more tearful moments of the day was when Kendyl had her “first look” with her dad. OH MY! Let me tell you! It was the most precious moment to get to witness. Kendyl cried. Her dad cried. Her mom cried. Me and my second shooter for SURE cried! What made it extra special was that the ceremony piano player was setting up his equipment at the time and just as Kendyl and her dad were finishing up their first look, the piano player decided to play her processional song for them. Kendyl’s dad took her in his arms and they just danced. Hands down one of the most perfect moments during the day.
When I say that I loved this wedding, I mean that I really really LOVED this wedding! This next thing I am going to mention about this wedding is something that I’ve been telling everybody because I think it is genius. Two Words: PIZZA BAR! A buffet of pizzas! I just loved their pizza bar so much! Number 1: Who doesn’t love pizza? There was even a veggie pizza option. Number 2: It incorporated how Kendyl and Daniel met which I love.
The other thing I just cannot shut up about: the band at their reception. HOLY SMOKES was this band fantastic. They could play anything and everything, they were amazing singers, dancers, and entertainers, AND they knew exactly how to get everyone up and dancing. I’ve never experienced a wedding band like the 12South Band. Their website boasts that they are “more than just a band…it’s a “show”!” and I couldn’t agree more.
Kendyl and Daniel, below are just a few of my favorite photos from your wedding day. I hope that you enjoy getting to relive your day through this blog post. I cannot wait for you to see the rest of your photos! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your story.
Kendyl got ready at Isabella Sophia in Clarksville where she works as a hair stylist. Her sweet friend Lindsey did her hair.
We had to get a photo of the baby bumps! Just a few weeks later, I got to take Caitlin’s baby’s newborn photos.
I just love the heart patch sewn into Kendyl’s dress. She had another heart on the other side with her mom’s handwriting.
How cute are they in their matching outfits and slippers?!?!
Kendyl’s first look with her girls was definitely emotional for all of us!
All he could say over and over again was how beautiful she looked.
I love his face when he got to see his wedding band for the first time!
Those suspenders and bowtie on their little boy were just the CUTEST!!!
Absolutely loved the green bridesmaid dresses!
That beautiful smile on Kendyl’s face is directed to her little boy being held by a family member during the ceremony. I absolutely love the emotion on her face!
This family couldn’t get any cuter!
