Paige & Neil | An American Village Hand-Crafted Wedding

June 14, 2013

Filed in: Wedding

Paige and Neil are husband and wife! You may remember these two from their adorable engagement session a while back. Well, as suspected from their fun details they incorporated into the engagement session, the wedding day was filled with meaningful hand-made details all throughout the day. Perhaps my most favorite item was their fabulous program! It had all kinds of fun happenings from their love story along with a crossword puzzle to keep the kids (and grown-up kids…) occupied while waiting for the ceremony to start! So thoughtful : ) And thoughtful is just what these two are. All day Paige and Neil were working to serve one another and show their love in every way possible. They were just so excited to be together, not even the 100 degree weather (and Alabama humidity) could dampen their spirits. I also love how Paige wanted to have a “first look” with her father before going to see Neil for the first time. As you can see, we had a moment of sweetness… followed by some funny father-daughter time. The day was lovely and the party was fabulous, ending with Paige and Neil having a private last-dance (love!) and a glow stick grand-exit. Enjoy all of their sweetness from start to finish!
Thank you two for allowing us to be there with you on your sweet wedding day! Y’all are thoughtful and precious. I loved being there with you on your first day of marriage!
