There is nothing sweeter than when two home town friends get married.
I've known JT and Shelby for years, as we went to High School together.
So when Shelby asked me to be their wedding photographer, I was over the moon!
Their wedding day took place on a family ranch with open fields and beautiful greenery.
The day was filled with warmth and sunshine, which made for perfect wedding day weather.
Shelby was radiating with this beautiful glow from the minute I walked into her getting ready room. You could tell how excited she was, that her day was finally here.
She looked beautiful and was collected!
JT was very calm and quiet and you could tell he was taking it all in.
His face when he saw his bride coming down the aisle toward him, told a different story.
He had the biggest grin from ear to ear while he held the hand of his son, Rylan.
Shelby also had the biggest smile as she was walking toward her soon to be husband and step son Rylan.
As JT and Shelby exchanged vows, it was super sweet to feel the love and emotion behind their words. Happy tears filled Shelby's beautiful blue eyes, and you could tell that their friends and families were filled with happiness for the couple.
The ceremony was followed by a delicious New Mexican cuisine and dancing!
Their first dance was especially beautiful, as their friends and family held sparklers around the Bride and Groom.
I really loved this Idea, It was so unique and beautiful!
Your wedding was nothing short of amazing and beautiful all together!
Your personalities and love for each other really showed through from the decorations and details, to the toasts that the best man and maid of honor gave, and the songs you danced to!
I'm so happy for you two, and wish you a happy and healthy marriage!
Congrats Jt & Shelby!!!
