As I reflect back on Austin and Tiana’s intimate wedding day on April 25th, I am again reminded just how AH-MAZING intimate weddings really are. COVID-19 has certainly caused a lot of problems but I still continue to believe that my couples are experiencing their once-in-a-lifetime days in a truly amazing way. A day with no stress and your closest people there to support you. Austin and Tiana’s original wedding plans, among many others as well, were compromised BUT they made the absolute most out of this day. As always, I feel completely HONORED to have been able to spend it with them!
We spent the first bit of the day hanging out doing some cute getting ready shots with Tiana, her bridesmaid Casey, and her 3 super sweet, ADORABLE kiddos. As I was taking some detail photos, I could hear their little voices shouting “Mommy’s getting MARRIED!” ….with the purest form of enthusiasm and happiness! It always amazes me how smart kids are, even so young. But they knew just how important of a day it was for their mommy and that little moment ALONE melted my heart!! I mean just LOOK below at the photos of Tiana’s sweet girls helping her get ready!!
I then walked the kids over to where Austin was getting ready so they could all give him a gift from the 3 of them. They were so excited to give it to him Austin could hardly read what the beautiful picture frame even said! Haha! It was seriously the cutest thing! As if my heart wasn’t already melted enough. It was so apparent, as I was watching all three of them give Austin a big hug, just how much they adore him and how much he adores them….Again, the proof is in the pictures below as I type this!!
The day followed with even more heart felt moments as Tiana shared the most precious first look with her dad and then again with Austin! A few beautiful portraits and an intimate ceremony later….THEY’RE MARRIED!! With just their closest family and friends, a gorgeous and peaceful setting, and so much love and support, it could not have been MORE perfect!! I am so happy for these two as they set out on this new and beautiful season of life! CONGRATULATIONS to Mr. and Mrs. Crowson!!
