Chris told us the week of the wedding that he is an AMAZING dancer – like seriously good. Well it turns out that Olivia is no slouch either. And when you have family and friends who are equally pumped about celebrating Chris and Olivia’s wedding, it becomes a night to remember!
Heartwood Hall was the perfect backdrop for their wedding. There were stunning views on the lake, and an beautiful ambiance. The feel of the scene fit Olivia and Chris wonderfully! Kacie Cooper did an amazing job bringing the setting to life with her floral arrangements. And even though family came in from all over the country, there was no better place for these two to tie the knot. And to top it off, right after their ceremony, the sky blessed them with unforgettable clouds and light. It was such a magical time – Chris holding on tight to Olivia, both beaming!
These two really enjoy one another and feed off of each other’s energy! Chris describes Olivia as his rock. Her support is unwavering, her care a blessing. And throughout the whole day you could see Olivia smile big as she caught Chris’ eye. Because there is adoration in those eyes – he is her biggest fan. As wedding photographers, we have seen a lot of marriages begin and this one was truly amazing to see because of these moments that they both cherish.
And to think this all began on a softball field! Olivia noticed this quiet, strong guy and had to work on him a while to open up. But once he did, she found someone that she knew was special. His selflessness and calming nature was a welcomed addition to her life. She found out that she always wanted him around – and thats a beautiful feeling, isn’t it?!
Olivia and Chris, we had such a great time with you and your family! It was an honor to join you at Heartwood Hall and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for you!
These girls were all smiles all day! They were so excited for Olivia and were looking out for her to the very end.
Nothing better than having your best friends around for your big day!
