We met Ryan + Lacee through my (Elyse) cousin Rachel (thanks Rach!) last year! It was so nice to get to take the trip to visit with my family + photograph a wedding all in one weekend!!! It was 93 degrees on their wedding day, so we started the day off right with a dip in my family’s pool.. which we have decided is an excellent start to ALL wedding days!
When we arrived that afternoon, all of Lacee’s girls were getting ready + putting the finishing touches on her! We grabbed some of her GORGEOUS details + then got her in her princess gown! She was SO stunning in that dress! Ryan’s family opened their home up for the girls to get ready in, + y’all they have THE most amazing backyard! The house sits on a hill and behind it is this insane mountain with rocks.. it was so cool!!!
They got married in downtown Petersburg (you think Beckley is small until you visit there!) at First Baptist Church. Surrounded by their friends + family they vowed their lives to one another. We had them for some quick photos after the ceremony + then got them to their party!!
The food was great, the cupcakes delicious + the dancing even better!!!
Ryan + Lacee, thank you for letting us celebrate with you! We pray that you only grow more in love over the years + that you will always reflect back on this day with happy memories!
