Nathan+Brice=Commitment

Well Saturday was the long awaited day and what a day it was! The weather was perfect, the venue was beautiful and the memories irreplaceable. Those of you that are Facebook friends with me have probably already seen some of these......either way, be prepared to be bombarded. I tried to collage as many as I could but some were too great to shrink!
Enjoy!
:: My mom and dad before the ceremony ::
:: Myself, my mom, my great Auntie Tina, my Aunt Chris and cousins (who were my flower girls) Casi and Brittany :::: Ryan, Kevin, Nathan (the groom), my dad and Trevor. Can you guess which one is not like the other? :::: Nathan waiting for his bride :::: Proud mom and dad walking down the aisle ::
:: The Bridal party ::

:: The lovely bride and her dad ::

:: Brice saying her vows ::

:: Nathan saying his :: :: A ceremony collage ::
:: Kissing the bride :: :: Making it official on paper ::
:: Married!! :: :: I l-o-v-e this one of them walking down the aisle together ::
:: Family shots :: :: My littlest brother Ryan and his girlfriend Rachael. For two people that hate having their picture taken the camera sure loves them ::
:: Trevor and his girl :: :: The MaC ladies ::
:: Our little family. I don't think the lighting could have been anymore perfect! :: :: Thanks momma for taking sure nice pictures! :: :: Three generations ::

:: A collage of my big one-year-old princess :: :: My mom took the top right of all the guys looking cool and the bottom right is one of my favies of the day ::
:: My cousin Brittany took a few of just us before the reception and gave me some awesome shots to choose from ::
:: The cake topper my brother picked out ::
:: Cutting the cake ::
:: They had their first dance to Brad Paisley's "I Though I Loved You Then" (which I am listening to right now) and it was the most emotional first dance I've ever seen by far. I was amazed how wonderful the pictures turned out because I was crying so hard I couldn't see through my viewfinder. I think the bottom right might be my favourite of the whole day ::
:: Then I thought I had recovered and they started playing " You Can Let Go Now Daddy" by Crystal Shawanda and Brice and her dad starting dancing and again I cried the whole song. Even the photographer (who also did our wedding) was in tears and later told me she had lost her dad and had to tell him he could let go which of course made me start to cry again. We love you Gloria! You ARE like family! The B&W of Brice and her dad is another favourite of the day ::
:: Bouquet and garter toss ::
Trevor MC'd the reception and did such a great job with the time constraints he had. It's hard to believe the day has come and gone and N&B are back home and it will be another while before our family will be all together again. Their wedding day was the first time our whole immediate family had been in one place at one time in over a year and a half which made it extra special!Nathan & Brice ~ you're day was memorable to say the least. We love you and miss having you around and are daily sending love and prayers across the country. May your marriage be long and blessed and may you always make each other laugh.

HOLY HOTNESS.

first off... Christy you look BEAUTIFUL. I love your hair/dress combo, simply stunning.

secondly... beautiful pictures! You are getting good at this my dear! One of the hardest things to overcome is shooting in direct light and it looks like you've done a fantastic job! Your gal is growing up and she looks so adorable in that dress! What a pretty family you have!

I love the dancing photo's! We have an all outdoor wedding this weekend! So excited. Pictures are so much easier outside. (I hate having to rely on flash)

Good work! Congratulations & Blessings to Nate and Brice!

I started to cry when I was reading about the first dance and then the father daughter dance brought more tears, what a beautiful memory and such a gorgeous day.

You look stunning, Christy!! I love your dress. Your photography is really fabulous.

I love the photo of the three of you with Danae's tongue sticking out, priceless!
