The end of the year has been filled with so much traveling, all for capturing love stories! One of those love stories belongs to our sweet couple, Aaron and Tracey! Thanks to our dear friends and peers in the wedding industry, The Richards, who connected us with Aaron and Tracey, our paths were able to cross. Since our first call, we knew that if there were ever a couple to serve, Aaron and Tracey were definitely it!
Aaron and Tracey spend their days helping others which makes being able to serve these two amazing human beings for at least one day a true honor! Aaron met Tracey at work and fast forward to their wedding day at The Howey Mansion with a baby boy on the way.
Leading up to the wedding, I had the opportunity to chat with Tracey at various times. You know, girl wedding talk. Not one moment during our conversations did she ever seem nervous about their wedding. Maybe over some final decisions on wedding details but the easiest thing, the one thing that was effortless and easy for her, was the thought of marrying Aaron.
It was pretty impressive on the wedding day to see how calm and ready she was to become Aaron’s wife. She walked into the bridal suite in all her flawless fabulous glory, cool as a cucumber! Glowing from every angle. It was evident that every fiber in her body was ready to become Mrs. Blankenship.
Funny enough, it never fails; where there is a calm bride, there is a nervous groom who feels like minutes are passing like hours. But our teddy bear Aaron no longer had to wait. We wanted to get him in front of his bride as soon as possible. We could tell he wanted to be with his best friend, Tracey!
Our favorite moment of the day was this very first encounter, the first look. You will see shortly why it was our favorite moment of the day. Who doesn’t appreciate a man who must be tough for a living yet is moved to tears when seeing his bride for the first time! What a privilege to be a witness to such a tender moment.
Aaron and Tracey, we don’t even know how to begin to describe how much of a pleasure it was to serve you guys! We are so excited for you guys to continue this journey together as husband and wife and soon-to-be parents. Life is an adventure better had with the one person you love and trust, and it feels like home. Walking away from your day and recapping some of our favorite moments, it is evident that you have found your home in each other. We pray many blessings over your marriage and growing family. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to be a part of your first day as husband and wife.
