Josh & Cayla’s Wedding | Cabins at Pine Haven | Beaver WV


post filed in:

I am thankful for the time that I spent with this bride and groom. It was a privilege to be a part of their big day as their wedding photographer. They were sweet and funny, with wonderful friends and family.
Cayla has enlisted and will be heading off soon. She planned this gorgeous wedding in 2 months.

Ladies I wouldn’t suggest trying this, but if you are going to try, ask Cayla how she did it.

I think she may have magic because wedding planning is a lot of work, and her wedding was amazing!

The gorgeous details…

Getting the dress on…

How perfect is the dress she chose. I love the lace and beads. Not to mention, it fits her perfectly.

The first look…

There are many benefits to sharing a first look. It’s intimate, with time for you and your groom to just appreciate one another. To be completely wrapped up in each other on the wedding day, when things are otherwise very busy and sometimes crowded.

The Bride & Groom…

A few moments with just the two of them right before the ceremony.

The ceremony…

It was bright outside. The sun showed no mercy, casting a shadow right across Cayla and Josh’s waist during the ceremony. But these two look good in any light!beckley wv wedding photographer_0198.jpg

The first kiss as husband and wife…

I told you these guy were a playful bunch. This shot was completely unprompted. They were being directed for a posed portrait and could help themselves. What can I say, sometimes you have to go with the flow. I would have missed this shot if I had stopped their goofing around.

The first dance…

Half way through the first dance mom and dad had their sweet daughter, the flower girl, join in. Such a beautiful family moment on their wedding day!
