This wedding quickly became very near and dear to me! After meeting with Graham this past summer, I quickly adored her sweet personality and big smile. Anytime she mentioned Tony, her face would light up a little brighter. I just love when that happens! Of course, I always love forming relationships with my brides, but little did I know that I would not only become fast friends with Graham, but also with her amazing family! 

It was at her bridal session earlier this fall that I met her sister and mama. They are just as kind and welcoming as Graham and I felt like a part of the family instantly! Over the course of the months leading up to the wedding, I would get to see Graham's sister randomly and also, get to have some sweet in-person and text conversations with her mama. I'm telling y'all, this family is one-of-a-kind! They're family is so tight-knit and I loved getting to watch them love on Graham and Tony during this special time. 

Graham and Tony have the best story! They met on a dating app called Bumble, which will explain all the bumblebee details in the photos below! How amazing is that?! After dating for about a year, Tony decided to propose to Graham at the beach. He planned it so their families could watch from the balcony of the beach house and kept it all a secret! How sweet?! 

Graham had a very clear vision for her day and pulled off a gorgeous southern wedding. She was all about the details and I couldn't get enough of it! From the bumblebees to the ribbon, she crafted everything so perfectly. 

There was so much joy and love on this day! The most meaningful gifts were given, some from Graham to her mama and sister, one from her daddy at their first look, and one from Tony to Graham that was beyond special. I really am so thankful to have been apart of this day and to have gotten to watch all of this behind a lens. It was incredible and I just love these people to death!
