This.wedding.rocks! In case you haven't taken a seen Part 1, you can check that out here!
I loved this wedding for so many reasons! Not only are Shayna and Cody the sweetest and just plain fun, but their wedding was SO laid back! Shayna wanted to only concentrate on her and Cody pre-ceremony! Having the bridal party and pictures right after the ceremony let us have PLENTY of time for the first look and bride and groom portraits. I almost want to suggest this to all of my couples! :)

And all the kiddos at the wedding were so cute!!! And Mr. Turtle...was totally the additional guest that didn't RSVP but just showed up! 




They're married!!!!! 
These next two images are two of my FAVORITE!!! There's something magical about black and white...it makes me crazy happy! 








These may be the most emotional parent dance photos I've taken in a while! I just sat there crying behind my camera with everyone else!








Loved my second shooter Liz with Elizabeth Nord Photography!!! She was so amazing and a few of these images are her eye! :D



They're awesome impromptu sunflower seed exit!! Seriously, how cute are they!?
Shayna and Cody!!! You know how much I just love you two and your wedding day!!! It was the perfect brunch wedding and everything you wanted!!! So happy you asked me to share it with you and your amazing friends and family!

shayna & cody {the day} part 1

Monday, July 15, 2013

Yes, you read that correctly! This is PART 1 of Shayna & Cody's amazing wedding day! I was getting hand cramps from choosing all of the photos for their post that I decided why not break this loveliness up into two parts?!? And since I'm my own boss...I said sure! :D

I am beyond excited to bring you this uber detailed wedding. Not only were Shayna & Cody so amazing on their wedding day...but they are the darn tootinest cutest couple!!! Shayna may be half as tall as Cody, but seriously, they were so meant for each other! Shayna might have squeeled as much on her wedding day as I did on mine...and that ladies and gentlemen is a lot!

Shayna is a photographer as well and we met while she was interning for Jennie Andrews Photography. We hit it off fantastically, but when she asked me to be her wedding day photographer I was shocked!!! Me?? Ahhhh! Ok! I remember when she said to me during our first consult, "As long as you continue to do what you are doing, we will be happy!" and I think I might have shed a tear.
So, enough talky talk...I want to share some super adorableness with you!

Shayna and her girls got ready at Cody's mom's salon EmaLisa's Salon.



 I adored Shayna's tea length, polka dot dress!!! It was PERFECT for her!




Love me some Ijams Nature Center!!

LOVED the bridesmaid dresses from American Eagle! Are those not adorable!?!?!








Yes, this happened. I full on piggy back carried Shayna to the first look. :) All in a days work ladies and gentlemen!
 Shayna and Cody's first look was perfect! Remember how I said Shayna squeeled??? Well, she squeeled and jumped up and down when she saw Cody! Absolutely priceless!!!

 I love the picture my second shooter, Liz with Elizabeth Nord Photography got of Shayna!!! Adorable to boot!!!








 Loved having Liz with me at this wedding! While I was grabbing this B&W image above, she grabbed this beautiful image below!!! 

 The flowers by The Katelier were just so precious!!! They fit Shayna and Cody's personalities with how bright they were! 
 And get ready for a detail overload!!! I have to admit, when I met with Shayna and Cody about 2 weeks before the wedding, I was a little bit nervous. Shayna may have had that prewedding fog that all brides get (I know I did). But man oh man, was that totally unfounded! Shayna and Cody and their families put SO much detail into the day that I honestly don't think they missed a thing!!
 LOVE their fans and I know their guests did too!! And those little apothecary bottles are the perfect little favors!





 These sunflower seed went from being a favor to being the couples exit at the end!!! Love impromptu exits!! :D










 Shayna and Cody had a morning wedding followed by brunch! Loved that they went outside of the norm!!! Abner's Attic and Cruze Dairy Farm provided the yummiest food and drinks for the brunch wedding!


 Be sure to be back later this week for Part 2 of Shayna and Cody's beautiful brunch wedding!!! I can't wait to show you the beautiful ceremony, fun bridal party pictures and the incredibly sweet dances!!!
