PADEN + NICK
The day started out beautiful, sunny and not a cloud in sight. I was so excited when I arrived at The Barn BCS in College Station to capture the love story between the two most fun-loving people you will ever meet. Paden and Nick are the type of people who when you see them together you know their love is real and one of a kind. The amount of love and sentiment that showed itself throughout the day blew me away at every turn.
The day started out like most of my wedding days where I arrive at the venue gather up all the details and then get busy. The only difference is that Paden is the most organized bride I’ve ever met. She had ALL. OF. THE. DETAILS. Laid out in the most perfect order, I didn’t have to look or ask for anything. I always like to start the day with details, it helps me get warmed up and gets my creative juices flowing. I like to use the analogy of warming up before an athletic event. But I digress. Anywho, I started with details and then got busy capturing Paden getting ready and her girls. And then the water works started because the first look between Paden and her dad was PERFECTION! I never know how dads are going to react but Paden’s dad didn’t disappoint. His reaction so incredibly sweet and genuine. My favorite quote from his from the day was “It’s just sweat!” But he was actually tearing up seeing his precious daughter all dolled up getting ready to marry the love of her life.
My second favorite moment from the day was watching Paden walk down the aisle towards Nick. I always like watching dads walk their daughters down the aisle but I’m a sucker for watching the groom during the processional. The smiles, the tears, the excitement that was evident on Nicks face was such a ‘cherry on the top’ moment. The vows they exchanged were heartfelt and so sweet I couldn’t help but get all giddy inside. I just love LOVE and wedding cake. Don’t forget the cake. Before we get to the cake (it was delicious BTW) let’s talk about the bridal party. They were HILARIOUS! Paden and Nick had their favorite people stand beside them on one of the biggest days of their lives and they definitely put the ‘Party’ in bridal party. I could not have asked for a more fun group to hang out with.
Then comes the Reception; first dance, cake, toasts, and of course DANCING! Seriously, these guys know how to THROW. IT. DOWN. Such a fun reception and time celebrating the newly weds! The sparkler send off was definitely the perfect ending to the perfect day! I can’t wait to watch Paden + Nick grow together in marriage. Congratulations Mr. + Mrs. Shore!
