The lovely details, the hand-written vows, the golden glow behind the wooded trees and the number of times a joyful tear was wiped from an eye--what beautiful details that made up the Wiley wedding.
As you already know from Vivian's bridal session blog, I just adore this bride. She's as sweet as the pie served at her wedding and as precious as her first look with her groom and Daddy. Vivian chose to have a special moment with both her dad and groom separately, which was absolutely special.
Both of the reactions were priceless, and may have caused not only them but their photographer (ME!) to tear up, as well. And honestly, this is one of my favorite aspects on wedding days: seeing the emotion and letting it pull me right in. I'm all in. Was all in. And just felt all the joy with them throughout the remainder of their day.
And when Vivian walked down the aisle to her groom her was also wiping a tear from his eye, I just knew I couldn't love them anymore. What a beautiful ceremony they had with their best friends, family and stunning florals surrounding them to create the most joyous celebration as they said, "I do".
They danced the night away, sang their fight songs passionately and somehow were civil. You guys, while Vivian and Drew dated for years and years, they graduated from different colleges and that meant...they had a reception divided--kind of! ;-) I've honestly never witnessed two fight songs sung so passionately during a wedding reception by two groups of very passionate alumni! It was honestly so fun! Clearly, even though the teams were divided, everyone was on Team Vivian and Drew ;-) Because...obviously!
I love this couple and love that we were able to travel south to Houston so that we could photograph such a beautiful occassion!
