The lights were lowered during this Magnolia Bells wedding and the only ambient light was from the beautiful, dimly lit chandeliers. The guests had made their way out of the reception barn. Katelyn and Reece smiled at each other and then snuggled in close. As the music started they shared a private last dance at the end of their wedding day. Since I’m a hopeless romantic, this is truly one of my favorite parts of the day! After all those months of planning, it is crazy how fast the actual day will literally fly by. Taking a moment to just savor that your dream just became a reality is priceless to witness!
My heart smiled watching Katelyn and Reece share an intimate conversation with tears and laughter. They were officially Mr. & Mrs. Beall!!! As they were giggling, snuggling and swaying to the music I happen to look over to a far off corner of the barn. Hidden in the dark stood Katelyn’s momma and her brother. Their eyes were filled with joyful tears as they watched Katelyn and Reece, and my heart smiled. You could tell they didn’t want to miss a moment of seeing Katelyn so in utterly in love.
Katelyn was beaming the entire day. Even when we had to change our portrait location due to the storm that untimely rolled through, a smile never left her face! They were married and that was all that really mattered!
CLASSY BARN WEDDING RECEPTION
The reception ambiance was warm and inviting just like Katelyn and Reece. Classy touches of gold and lilac sprinkled throughout was the perfect compliment to the dark wooden walls of the Magnolia Bells wedding reception barn. It was such a beautiful setting for their closest friends and family to celebrate with them. Because the dance floor was hopping the entire evening, LITERALLY, I have quite a few reception photos to edit but… I don’t want them to miss how much fun their friends and family were having, so I’m good with that! …. and ps to those few groomsmen who came up to us telling us they needed new and fun social media profile pics, don’t worry we got you covered, they will be in the final gallery!
You can find their engagement session blog post here.
Thank you so much, Katelyn and Reece, for choosing us to be a part of your beautiful wedding day and making us feel like family!
I absolutely loved serving Katelyn and Reece on their special day alongside these amazing vendors:
Welcome! This is a fun and encouraging space where we can relax with a virtual cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea (unsweet for me, please!) and share stories of all things creative business, branding, beautiful interiors, and amazing vacation rentals. I’d love to have you sit with me!
