I learned during the ceremony that Karla has had her eye on Evan since elementary school! I don't know what took him so long but he eventually came to his senses. They are simply adorable and compliment each other so well!
The forecast suggested thunderstorms all day. And yes, they appeared but when we needed them to go away, away they went! The luck is certainly on their side!
Karla looked amazing! I looooooved her dress! Her best friend did her make up. Karla said, "I don't even need to look in the mirror."
Karla and Evan wrote notes to each other, which they read before their ceremony. Karla blatantly admitted that his was better, as she wiped away her tears. If it's true that he made her wait all that time, then she deserves it!
It was Evan's turn to wipe away the tears when he saw Karla walk down the aisle with her Dad. He's so cute. It was clear to everyone how smitten he is with Karla. The way he looks at her, holds her, dances with her. They truly have something special!
This wedding did not stop after I dragged my body home and into bed. Nope! They kept the night going hours after! So hopefully these photos will draw back some memories of this epic day!
Thank you for having me capture all the emotions! I have lots more to come and I cannot wait to share them with you! Cheers to a beautiful future together! Thunderstorms and all!

Here we go! Welcome back, weddings!
Can I just start this off by saying how much I missed this?! The thrill of capturing a wedding day never disappoints. All the preparation, the nerves in getting there, the excitement of the big moment, the spectrum of emotions - to be witness to it all is just the coolest thing and I'm so grateful!
Amanda and Keith clearly put a lot of time and effort into making their day as spectacular as they could and it showed! The venue, the flowers, the food - I could tell that they were creating a day to remember! I was noticing their choice in vendors through out the day and how excellent they were! I mean, I was literally taking notes for my brother and his fiance!
After getting ready in the bridal suite, Amanda chose to do a first look with her Dad and Stepdad. She looked stunning! Both were clearly so proud of their little girl! Speechless!
Cool as a cucumber, Keith broke into tears when he saw Amanda step into the aisle. With all eyes on her, she was locked into Keith who was trying his best to hold back his tears. It was as though it was just the two of them in that room for those split seconds.
They joined hands, said their vows, exchanged rings, and sealed it with a kiss! Quick and sweet and off to party!
After family portraits, we took the wedding party outside in the heat for a quick portrait session. After being isolated from family and friends all year, everyone was so excited to be together!
DJ Nicki Nell introduced the parents, the wedding party, and the new Mr. and Mrs. Harris! The reception had begun and the dance floor was rockin! A family tradition, everyone was given sunglasses and formed a conga line to three specific songs. Someone will have to remind me of the songs - I know one was Sunglasses at Night. Darn, what were the other two? Comment below! I just loved that tradition. It definitely got everyone on the dance floor! So fun!
My personal favorite of the night was when the DJ handed Amanda a fog blaster! Her reaction was priceless! I'm still laughing!
Sending you big hugs, Mr. and Mrs. Harris! You did it! Hold onto those sunglasses because your future is BRIGHT! ;)
