{Johnny and Sarah} Kimberly Crest House Wedding Photos

November 5, 2012

STOP RIGHT THERE!!
Please click play on the video below. This was Sarah and Johnny’s first dance song and I love how it sets the mood for their blog post!
 

Sarah and Johnny deserved the perfect wedding day. And I truly believe they got it. What an amazing day it was….perfection down to the last detail and with tons of sentimental touches.
 
I mean really, let me just make a list of some of the things that made the day so extraordinary:
-The INCREDIBLE venue. Kimberly Crest is one of my all time faves.
-The one-of-a-kind dress and bridesmaid’s gowns, all designed and handmade by Sarah’s sister.
-The Livestrong bracelets worn by the whole bridal party and given to all the guests, as favors, in memory of Sarah’s dad who passed from cancer shortly before the wedding.
-Beautiful weather.
-Zerrin, Johnny and Sarah’s baby girl who is SOOOO cute, that she can’t help but steal the show from time to time!
 
I am so beyond happy for these two. They deserve all the best the world has to offer and are a shining example of crazy, unconditional, head-over-heels LOVE.


Johnny, seeing his little girl all dressed up, for the first time that day.

Sarah was so ecstatic to finally get into her dream dress, that her sister had poured her heart into for months. When she first stepped into it, she shouted “I can’t believe I am wearing this dress! I AM SO HAPPY!!!”

Although her father couldn’t be there, his presence was definitely felt on that day. I know he was smiling down proudly on what a beautiful bride Sarah was. I loved this moment, right after she got into her dress and she stepped outside alone and held the photo of her Baba.

And yet another beautiful touch in memory of her father…a necklace she wore, with an imprint of his fingerprint.

One of Sarah’s friends made her a brooch bouquet that she didn’t see until moments before walking down the aisle. She was unable to hold back the tears, when they presented it to her.

The beautiful lady on the left is the talent behind all of the stunning dresses!


I just adore them! What a blessing it was to be a part of this day!
