Callie and Nathan’s wedding feels like a dream! Not because we now live in Sarasota, Florida so I’m 1,100 miles away, but because the entire day was pure perfection! Every detail. Every hug. Every tear, all filled with genuine love for the newly Mr. + Mrs. Stoneking!
Nathan and Callie are incredible people, both dedicating their life work to serving others. We legit ADORE these two. Nathan always seeing the very best of Callie and Callie always adoring Nathan (just look at the way they look at one another- swoon worthy!) And together, they make you feel like the most important person they’ve met. They genuinely care about your life, they are the life of the party and we all are the better for knowing them. So what better way than for all their family and friends to come together to celebrate their love. And celebrate they did!
The day started at the salon for the girls, followed by hugs, tears, laughter and anticipation while Callie got ready! All the feels you hope to have on your wedding day! Nathan and his guys filled the space with fun, laughter and kindness. To have a bunch of guys be SO great (well, your mommas raised you right!) The ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt, including Nathan’s dad reading a touching First Anniversary letter. The bridal party was a blast, which created a celebratory reception for sure! And let’s not forget to mention Nathan’s family will out dance anyone. ever.
The day was so much fun, and as always, I hope these images serve as a reminder of the love you have for one another and the love you will always be surrounded by.
Nathan + Callie Stoneking : June 15, 2019
So stunning. Both of you.
Nathan, you handsome devil.
Having a First Look is so special for a couple reasons! 1: You get time, just the two of you, to hold one another and just be present during the hurriedness that comes with a wedding day. And 2: (and my personal favorite reason!) You get to spend the day TOGETHER. Think about it. If you don’t see one another until the ceremony, you only spend the last half of your wedding day together. So First Looks = da bomb.com.
And as if the day couldn’t get anymore meaningful, they went and wrote legit heartfelt letters to one another. Thank goodness my tears don’t get captured, or the photo would have been blurry!
I just loooooooove pretty things!!!! Pretty flowers! Pretty people (inside and out!) Pretty dresses! Pretty light!! I love my job!!!
Just look at this crew! Oh my gosh, we had such a fun day with them!
Callie’s aunt did such a magnificent job on all the florals for the day!!
Now THAT, my friends… is a KISS!
Seriously though!? How.cute.is.every.little.detail!?!?!
And this is one of the women we all have to thank for it! Meet Hannah, Wedding Coordinator extraordinaire (and she can quote The Office better than me- that’s saying something!) I had the pleasure of working with Hannah for the first time during Claire + Kyle’s wedding last May! Hannah is a gem who genuinely cares about your relationship, your wants and your day running perfectly! Two words: HIRE HER.
Let’s all take a moment and take a look at that CAKE!!!! Icing On the Cake, what a beautiful work of art!
So much fun was had by all! The dance floor was packed, drinks were flowing… it was incredible!
And one of my faaaaaavorite details of the day!! Nathan surprised his bride with this vintage Rolls Royce rental from Antique Limousine in Indy! He knew how much planning and care Callie had put into their day, and he wanted a memorable way to top it off! I adore you two as a couple!
Mr. + Mrs. Stoneking, I can’t help but get mushy here. But getting to watch your guys’ relationship blossom through the years has been such a privilege. And to have the honor of documenting such love, well, it’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly. You guys are incredible. Your love is genuine, and I sure hope you guys get a wild hair and decide to move to Florida! hahaha! So much love for you guys! ALL our best, ALWAYS.
