Fall Elms Wedding Sneak Peek


Heyooooo!!! It’s Sneak Peek time again!!! And this time we’re back for Hailey and Johnny, and a peek from their GORGEOUS fall wedding day at The Elms. And friends…. Trust us when we say this is one you don’t want to miss. Especially when we release their full blog post in a few weeks.

Because friends. Over the years we’ve shared some pretty emotional and pretty happy couples. But Hailey and Johnny? They just might take the whole cake and then some when it comes to happy and emotional.

You see, they’ve been planning their wedding for what feels like forever.

Normally we wouldn’t say that, but Hailey said it herself, so it’s totally okay. 🙂 Like for at least 2 years. And as all of you who have been through the wedding planning process know, (and those of you going through it currently will find out), it seems like you have all the time in the world, until suddenly it’s wedding day.

Those few moments on wedding day when the transformation from fiancé to bride or groom happens? Guys. That’s when it all finally comes together and hits home. Those few, precious moments are absolutely magical. Hailey’s moments? So emotional, happy, and full of happy-wedding-day-tears.

All of a sudden the big day had arrived and allll the things were happening allll at once. And despite all of the planning that you’ve done and all of the detail that you’ve put into everything, sometimes the thing that you’re least prepared for are the emotions that come with something as simple as putting on a new dress or suit.

When these two ballroom-dancing-over-the-top-happy lovebirds shared their first look?

Time stopped. The sun was shining down, we’ll swear birds were chirping, and it was simply magical. And while we always give our couples as much time as they need after their first look to soak it all in, we still felt awful pulling them about 10 minutes later to start pictures.

Hailey and Johnny’s wedding day? It was simply magical. These two couldn’t keep their eyes off each other all day long. And the love and care they treated each other with all day? You guys. It’s legit what fairy tales are made of.

Family and friends – we know you’re probably all so incredibly excited to see more of Hailey and Johnny’s wedding pictures! Feel free to go ahead and pre-register to see their full gallery as soon as it’s released in just a few weeks!
