Grant and Courtney were married on a beautiful day in April. The sun was shining brilliantly, chasing away the nip of chilliness in the air. As Courtney prepared for that beautiful moment when she would walk down the aisle to meet her groom, she paced the room where she had been getting ready. Yep, she was nervous (who wouldn’t be?)!
Jaime is my sister, Alexis’, best friend, so I had to post this picture of them hugging. :)
After everyone had been through the greeting line, I got to take Grant and Courtney away for some bride & groom pictures before the reception. I love when the bride and groom set aside time just for pictures of the two of them together! It’s one of my favorite parts of the wedding day!
Love all of these!!
Just-married couples hardly ever stop smiling. :)
Beautiful couple, right here. :)
After about 15-20 min. of bride & groom pictures, the couple was introduced to the guests at the reception as Mr. and Mrs. Grant Hayes!!!
Courtney and Grant then proceeded to have their first dance together, as a married couple, and it was precious, to say the least.
I was so excited that Grant and Courtney had a “first dance”. Courtney wasn’t sure she wanted to at first, but I’m so glad she did…I think the first dance is one of the best parts of the wedding day! The last few weddings I’ve been to/photographed didn’t have a first dance and I missed them. :)
I couldn’t narrow down my favorites from their first dance…I liked too many of them!
After the first dance, everyone proceeded to grab some of the food that had been prepared! It was all delicious!
What a cute little guy!!
This punch was absolutely delicious!! (I’m a huge punch fan. :)
There were tables and chairs, as well as picnic blankets, for the guests.
It was such a beautiful day!!
The food after the damage had been done. :)
After everyone had eaten their full, the best man gave a toast.
The whole toast was about how Keenan never would’ve guessed that showing Grant something (a game) on the internet would lead to meeting a special someone (Courtney), which would then lead to their marriage. :)
Love how all of their hands are similar. :)
After the toast, the cake was cut!
All-time favorite cake topper right here. :)
The cake was extremely delicious!!
A little while after the cake, it was time for Grant and Courtney to leave for their honeymoon. While they were getting changed into some comfier clothes, I took some pictures of their rings.
Once I finished taking ring photos, I went to find where everyone had disappeared to. I soon found some of them decorating the newlywed’s honeymoon car!
Everyone was then given some colored bags of rice to throw at the newlyweds as they made their way to the car. :)
Here they come! Ready set….
…pelt them! :)
Yes, they made it safely to their car. :)
And off they went to live happily ever after!
