I don't know what it was about this wedding. I don't know if it's because it was a small, sweet backyard gathering. Or if it was because the bride grew up the youngest of all sisters like I did. Or if it was because her mom reminded me of my mom. Or if it was because the family is such a welcoming and encouraging bunch. Or because there was cotton candy, and I LOVE cotton candy. Maybe it was the slew of AMAZING details designed and mostly all created by the mother of the bride herself, or perhaps how incredibly excited Laurel & Kevin were to be married. But whatever it was, this wedding was dear to me. Ryan and I have the honor of celebrating many wedding days with amazing couples, but it's not that often that I tear up at weddings anymore-- but this one got me. There was so much warmth and love in this backyard little wedding.
Check back with us soon for Part II of this wedding!
