Some of the best photos to look through are the sweet in-between moments captured by photographers who know to never stop snapping the shutter. There's just something about the groom getting to see his bride all dressed up for the first time, that first look with a dad or the sweet moment when a mom buttons up her daughter's gown. (We tend to keep tissues on deck here at our offices!)
Without further ado, here are a few of our favorite wedding moments from 2019:
We were feeling all the feels when we ran across these pictures of Katie and Hayden Headley taking a sweet moment to soak up becoming husband and wife on their big day.
We are here for a bubble exit! We loved everything about Brittany and Tim's colorful wedding at the Record Downtown.
Talk about a gorgeous wedding moment! We could feel the love in this beautiful frame from Erin Speicher and Ashley Jackson's beautiful wedding at Thorncrown Chapel.
Kaitlyn Shuffield made quite a fashion statement wearing the hat her mother got married in to exit her wedding reception. "Getting to honor them while wearing a piece from both of their wedding days was something really special to me," she says. "I also really felt like 'Parent Trap' vibes were coming through with my mother’s hat, which is always an added bonus."
We'd categorize this under "epic," for sure! Kathryn Gadberry Carlisle and Jordan Carlisle take the cake for the most artsy wedding photo during their wedding at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The couple snuck into the temporary Yayoi Kusama exhibit, "Infinity Mirrored Room—My Heart is Dancing into the Universe." And we're just a little bit obsessed.
When Emily Kate and Nick Beyer saw each other for the first time on their wedding day, Nick surprised Emily Kate with a beautiful hand-built prayer kneeler for them to pray on together before they became husband and wife. "We fully embraced the other, hugged, cried, and prayed on the beautiful prayer kneeler that he built for our home," Emily Kate says. "Just about the sweetest, most thoughtful gift of all time. I love that heart of his."
We're always in for a fun Second Line Dance but Sarah and Jacob Roberts is on a whole new level. The couple started their dance after the ceremony and danced their way through downtown Bentonville with all their guests as they made their way to the reception at the Record Downtown.
This is one sign moment we won't be getting over any time soon. We love how Kristen and Trent Wilson made the most of their wedding venue by utilizing The Apollo on Emma's theater marquee to declare their love for each other for all to see.
Now this is one for the books, y'all. Stevi Perry Howard gave her husband Troy Howard the surprise of a lifetime with a firework show during their first dance!
