You know that feeling of déjà vu, where even though you are in a completely unique situation, it feels like you a reliving a day in the past. Cherie and Kyles’s wedding completely had hints of déjà vu all day for Greg and I. From the lifelong friends that were standing by their side, the fact that they were high school sweethearts (like Greg and me), and the amazing reception music that took it way back and had me singing boots with the fur all the way home (sorry Greg).
The moment I arrived to start capturing Kyle and Cherie’s day I instantly got the best vibe and knew it was going to be an amazing wedding day. There was so much love and support surrounding these two. From loving parents who were there every step of the way to a wedding party who have been friends and seen almost every moment of their 11-year relationship! These two were also high school sweethearts—which always tugs at my heartstrings too.
I just loved how well their day came together too. I instantly fell in love with the Mauve bridesmaid dresses from Bella Bridesmaid’s dresses and when I saw the gorgeous dress Cherie had picked, my photographer brain did a little happy dance. It was the perfect mix of sass and elegance—and could not have fit her any better! She was a picture of pure radiating elegance and grace.
While I loved their entire day, their ceremony completely left me with all of the mushy feelings! To the point, I am kind of tearing up just remembering it. When Kyle opened his booklet of vows and started reading, there was not a dry eye in the house! As he spoke, all around us you could hear the muffled sniffles that rang out from the crowd. As I glanced around, almost everyone was wiping away tears and beaming up at the lovely couple. It just solidified even more what I saw at the beginning of their day—that they truly have the best support system. Over their 11 years of dating, you can tell that they built a solid relation not only with each other but those they loved as well. Each person was so connected to these two and it really showed.
So, with that, I am so excited to show you their day!
