Erin and Chris’s big day had arrived!

From a morning full of preparation for their Green Acres ceremony to the sparkler send off, this day was action packed with love and happiness.  Erin’s day started at the Doubletree Hotel where she and those closest to her got ready, while the groomsmen gathered to greet the gleeful groom at his apartment.

With makeup applied, hair done, and pep talks given it was time to head off to Green Acres Event Center to celebrate Chris and Erin’s love.

A first look that hits you right in the feels!

With Erin now looking flawless in her wedding gown, it was time for the first look with her dad and her future husband.  Dad was up first and if that’s not a face of a million emotions, then I don’t know what is.  So much happiness, so much love!  After some recovery time for Erin, it was time for Erin’s big reveal to her soon to her betrothed.  They met out on the field and embraced each other, so elated, that their day had finally come!

After a few moments between the couple, it was time to capture the bridal party.

Full of friends and family, the bridal party was poised and ready!  In fact, the groomsmen were so pumped, they busted out the bernie!

Then it was time for Erin and Chris to tie the knot!

After Erin made sure that all the guys looked extra dapper, it was time for their moving Green Acres ceremony.  One of my favorite photos is Chris looking down the aisle at his bride to be, there wasn’t a happier guy in the room.

To finish the ceremony, Chris and Erin opted to perform a handfasting ritual to celebrate their unbreakable bond with each other.

Then came two of my favorite words, cake, and dancing!

The cake was of the “cup” variety and there were so many to choose from.  You can tell from the photos that they did not go to waste!   After speeches and Chris’s mom going on a hugging spree (you’re never too old for your mom to pinch your cheeks!), it was time for dancing!

Like I said, this awesome day was action-packed, and we are so happy y’all let us be a part of your Green Acres ceremony big day! Thank you Erin and Chris!
