Erin & Omar

July 2, 2014

It’s been a little over a year since I’ve photographed a wedding at Renee’s Event Center in Paducah, which might have been too long to go without shooting there! But it didn’t take long for me to fall comfortably into the rhythm that Renee’s provides and once I saw the beautiful decorations and met up with the gorgeous bride Erin and her lovely girls, I knew the day was going to be perfect!

Erin chose to have her hair tied into a fishtail braid over to the side and to top the cuteness off, her hair stylist added sprigs of baby’s breathe. It was stunning!

While I was gathering up Erin’s Bridal Details, I asked if she had a necklace and even though her dress didn’t NEED a necklace, she regrettably hadn’t been able to find a necklace she loved enough to pair with her amazing dress. Omar must have known because he gifted her with the most beautiful pearl necklace… and it only enhanced her dress! Erin kept exclaiming, “How did he know???” Haha, I LOVE a good surprise!

Another great surprise was Omar’s gift… I designed a beautiful navy linen covered album from the images I captured at Erin’s boudoir session back in April. He was definitely taken aback and I’m so glad Erin wanted me to photograph him seeing it for the first time!

It was hot and guests were enjoying cocktail hour and yard games so I was thrilled that Erin & Omar were all for being “adventurous” and crossing the street and walking a bit to a field I found earlier in the day. The light was heavenly!

I’ve seen a lot of cakes in my days but my goodness did I LOVE the look of Erin & Omar’s! How unique! It tasted it even better than it looked too!

Omar and his friends are HUGE Chicago Bears fans. His cupcake groom’s cake was only fitting!

Want to know how awesome Erin & Omar are? If the rest of the day wasn’t evidence enough, their first dance song was Toto’s Africa! Everyone couldn’t help but sing along!
