As many couples across the globe, this lovely couple had been eagerly awaiting their wedding day to arrive when the COVID-19 Pandemic came along and tried to ruin their plans.
Large gatherings were forbidden, so Emily and Adam had to find creative ways to still get married and celebrate their love for one another.
The wedding took place at the family's property near Waco, Texas. It was a sunset wedding, on the gorgeous "island" in the center of a heart-shaped lake.
For being an outdoor summer wedding in Texas, we sure lucked out with amazing weather! There was a nice breeze pretty much the whole day, so it didn't even feel hot outside.
My friend Kynzie with Air Story Drone got to tag along with me on this road trip and she captured these breath-taking aerial shots of the "venue":
I was speechless as I saw how beautiful everything turned out. The ceremony processional was absolutely gorgeous as everyone walked across this bridge to the island.
There may have only been five guests at this intimate wedding, but that didn't keep anyone from having a blast. Together, we witnessed the vows that Emily and Adam promised to one another, and we celebrated their union as they both said "I do."
One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is right after the ceremony when we take husband and wife portraits for the very first time.
The couple is always so giggly and giddy with joy, as they are finally married and ready to begin their lives together as a married couple.
This is probably also the only moment throughout the whole day in which the bride and groom get some alone time together - and it's truly a very special moment to witness.
The pandemic may have gotten in the way of Emily and Adam's original wedding plans, but it sure didn't keep them from beginning their new journey as one.
The day was filled with joy, laughter, and so many new memories that'll be cherished forever. It was truly an honor to be a part of this incredible wedding, and I cannot wait to capture the couple's wedding reception next year!
