I’d say that on their wedding day, most brides concentrate on having things run smoothly. Are people where they need to be? Are we on schedule? Did everyone get something to eat? How does my dress look? Can you believe today is finally here? And rightly so. It is their day after all!
For Lacy, though, it was all about Nick. As she had her hair done, makeup done, put her dress on, and got Nick’s wedding day gift ready, all of her thoughts were about her future husband. And being the best bride possible for him. Her questions were more along the lines of: Do you think Nick is nervous? Will he like my makeup like this? What will he think of my dress? Of course there are many brides that ask these questions, too! But something about the way Lacy said them made me see just how deeply she and Nick love each other. Here it was – her wedding day – and she wasn’t thinking about herself at all. She was so totally devoted to her future husband already that her #1 priority was to make sure their day was everything he hoped for.
And I’m sure Nick is the same way. The care that he put into designing her engagement ring alone is serious proof!
As I watched Lacy and Nick together later on, it was so amazingly evident that their love is something truly special. There is such a pure and beautiful joy that radiates from them when they’re together. I just know that the people around them will see them as an example of how to put others first and show love every day.
Lacy and Nick :: Yours was one of those weddings where I felt like a member of the family. Lacy, you are blessed to have some wonderful women as friends and sisters. It was so enjoyable for me to just carry on conversations with them all day like I’d known them for years! I know Toby felt just as comfortable as I did with the guys, Nick! Congratulations to you both! I just know you’ll have an amazing life together.
Lacy’s dress was gorgeous!!!!
Lacy’s sister helped with the back of her dress. I hope I get to do that for my younger sisters someday!
It was clear that Lacy and her dad have a super special relationship…
Lacy’s dad surprised her with a pink limo!
Lacy and her siblings!
This balcony is connected to Lacy’s childhood room – how cool is that?!
Nick’s pretty handsome, too!
Opening his gift from Lacy…
Love this detail!
This moment made me tear up… So beautiful.
Lacy and Nick had a mini hot air balloon to remember people who couldn’t be there.
They had a little trouble getting it going because of the wind, but it worked out fine!
These two were so great to photograph – which was nice because we had to rock out their portraits pretty quickly! Luckily, the grounds of Lake Lyndsay are beautiful!
One of my favorites.
Nick’s socks were a wedding day gift from Lacy. Love them!
The light in this picture just takes my breath away… Can every wedding day look like this, please?
The flowers looked fantastic!
Such a unique (and cool) cake!
Aren’t the lanterns a great idea?!
I caught this in the little bit of down time before dinner… So sweet!
Lacy and Nick did the same German tradition as another couple we had this year. I think it’s so great when couples incorporate things like that!
This reminds me of a movie still.
A little karaoke!
Some of my favorite ring shots EVER! According to her dad, Lacy likes sprinkles. I just had to take advantage of their ice cream bar!
