The day had finally come. The snow from the week before had long since disappeared and left in its wake a beautiful fall day. The perfect weather for what was no doubt going to be a beyond perfect day. Dressed in white she walked the short distance to the west lawn with her mother just steps behind. She rounded the corner and there he was. The bride’s first protector. Her first love. Her father.
He waited patiently. His calm exterior no doubt a facade for the excitement and nerves inside. Finally, she took the last few steps to him only pausing to softly say, “Remember when…” And just like that, his calm facade melted away and a few tears began to fall as he turned to see his little girl on her wedding day.
Justin & Danica’s Central City wedding was what fall dreams are made of! Every detail so thought out, from the special engraving on his watch to the heirloom lace on her bouquet. I had so much fun seeing their love story on display. And then to top it off, they had one of the most fun bridal parties we have ever had the pleasure of working with! They had a smile on my face from the minute I walked in to long after we were finished for the night.
Justin & Danica, it has been such an honor getting to preserve these memories for you! There isn’t a day that goes by that Ethan and I aren’t eternally grateful for your trust on such a special day. Your Central City wedding isn’t one we will soon forget! We wish you nothing but many years of happiness in the future!
