This couple, Halley and Ryan, is one of my favorites. They are a truly genuine couple. What you see is what you get. They are honest and raw, but there is no denying their love for eachother. Ryan reminisce about early in their relationship when they met. Apparently Halley has some pretty awesome dance moves (how did I miss this!) that caught Ryan’s eye. Ryan had a bit of a naughty boy charm that intrigued Halley. Little did Halley know, she caught a gem, in that Ryan was a true gentleman. They do not take marriage lightly, and they acknowledge that marriage takes work. But, they go back to the basics and that is love and family. Family is so important to the both of them.
The day began at Lux Salon in Rogers. This is where the bride and her bridesmaids gathered to get ready the morning of the wedding. Capturing a moment like this between a Bride and her mom is very special. Amidst the chaos, it is important to take just a moment and feel the love and pride a mom has for her daughter.
This was a priceless moment. This beautiful cherub face seen in the corner admiring her mom as she has final touches done to her hair and beautiful cathedral veil.I met the men and women separately at Veteran’s Memorial Park. Halley and Ryan wanted their first look to be as she walked down the aisle, so this was very carefully choreographed to ensure their wishes.
A special moment between a Bride and her older sister. There was so much love at this wedding!Ryan’s Grandmother was very excited about the upcoming nuptials of he and Halley. Sadly, she passed the week before the wedding. It was obvious she was present in the hearts and minds of everyone. Knowing marriage will need nurturing, Halley and Ryan had a wine ceremony within their wedding. They each wrote the other a letter about their love for eachother. They hope to open it on their 15th Wedding Anniversary, to sit and share a glass of wine and remember what brought them together.A little stroll after tying The Knot…Everyone loves a little humor and fun……!
