A long time ago, like… a year and a half ago long, the Big Day Blog celebrated its first birthday (and boy oh boy what a celebration it was). This girl, Casie, contacted me. She wanted to help me celebrate the blog’s birthday by giving away free wedding photography.
Yep. You read that right. Free wedding photography. To anyone in the U.S. Who does that?
An amazing person, that’s who. Since then, Casie and I became fast friends… chatting over email and Twitter, then text. Then… Casie just so happened to be in the DC area and came to Mr. Man’s and my post-wedding shin dig. I was so so thrilled to be able to finally meet Casie in person.
Anyway. Rhian won that photography package. And got married this summer… in Arizona. And the photos are breathtaking. And I’m going to share them with you. Right now.
James and Rhian got married at Mormon Lake Lodge. STUNNING location… just wait until you see the gorgeous skies Casie captured!
I absolutely love Rhian’s dress. Love, love, love it.
Can’t forget about James… looking dapper, fine sir!
They opted to do a first look…
Melting. Also: see why I love her dress? So spunky, elegant, and it seems to suit her personality to a T! Love it.
Rhian made all the bouts and bouquets herself (my kinda gal)!
(this would be that sky I mentioned earlier)
I love all of the details Rhian created…
Here Comes the Bride…
No wonder I like Rhian and James so much… They have a weenie!!!! (we have two, I’m obsessed)
The skies threatened rain, and in Casie’s words… James threatened back!
Swoon! Now, onto reception details…
Oh, the weenie!!!
James and Rhian: I’m so so so glad that I got to be a part of your Big Day, and I wish you the absolute best! Also: if you’re ever in the DC area, I expect a visit!! xo
Lastly. To Casie.
Thank you SO Much for celebrating the Blog’s birthday with me. You’re so generous, so wonderful, an amazing friend, and an exceptional photographer. Thanks for setting aside time from your crazy schedule to make it to this beautiful couple’s Big Day… and thanks for the photos. They’re gorgeous. Love to you!
It’s Monday… I’m linking up with Molly for #YOLOMONDAYS!
