Kira & Travis will have quite the story to tell about their wedding day! Their very personal, beautiful, intimate wedding didn't go quite as planned. But in the end they were married and it was fun! Here is their story:
When I arrived at the Natural Bridge Hotel where Kira was going about making herself beautiful, it was hot and sunny!
Kira's little party dress that you'll see more than you might think!
Seriously cute shoes!
The most amazing bouquet I have ever seen! Kira searched Etsy and found a seller that made her button bouquet. Before I get slammed with emails asking what seller...Kira promised to send me the info as soon as she could!
I caught this image as we rode the shuttle to the Bridge and fell in love with it.
Plans were for a beautiful outdoor ceremony to take place at Natural Bridge. As we walked the path towards the Bridge, we heard the sound of thunder and the sky began to grow dark. Hoping it would pass, we waited for the last few shuttles to arrive.
But, no sooner had we rounded a corner to hide Kira than the skies opened up and the rain began to pour!
We made it to the bridge where everyone huddled together to provide Kira as much shelter as possible. This is the expression never left her face! Amazing!
Once everyone was transported back to the hotel, plans changed and the ceremony was moved inside the reception area. Travis and Kira didn't care where it happened, as long as they were married! And, because both her long dress and beautiful shoes were wet and uncomfortable, she chose to finish out the day in the shorter, more comfortable dress and her cute boots! It seemed fitting and completely natural.
I love the way they look at each other!
After the ceremony we snuck off for some fun creative portraits. We were even able to catch a ride back down to the bridge!
Aren't they just adorable!
Kira, thanks for being beautiful.
I loved their idea for a guest "book"! All the guest's placed their thumbprints, like leaves, on the tree.
These beautiful bird favors were actually wildflowers made to be planted!
Of course I had to play up the button theme!
The cutest cake topper ever!!!
Kira & Travis, thank you for bringing me into your world. Your love is strong and wonderful. I was honored to be a part of something so special.
