cross creek ranch wedding: aymee & michael


Mar 22, 2018

The sun didn’t shine much that day. But by looking at the two of them you never would have known, because they seem to bring their own sunshine wherever they go. It shone out of her eyes every time she looked up at him, and was there in the warmth of his smile. Their’s is a love that will stand the test of time, and easily weather any storm. Because no matter what happens in this big crazy world, the two of them will make their own sunny days . . . . .

Aymee and Michael are married! They had such a beautiful wedding day at Cross Creek Ranch, and we couldn’t be any more excited to share all our favorite parts! The two of them shared a sweet first look that ended in the longest, sweetest hug, before a ceremony that couldn’t have felt any more magical.  Aymee walked down the aisle of the enchanted forest in a pair of sparkly Kate Spades, and you never would have known by looking at Michael’s smile that he had already laid eyes on his bride that day. It was like the very first time he had ever seen her, and was such an adorable moment. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, the two of them were married in a short and sweet ceremony, and there weren’t very many dry eyes left in the crowd. These two have known each other since they were 9 and 10 year old nextdoor neighbors, and you could feel every moment of that history as they spoke their vows beneath the trees.

The color palette highlighted Tiffany blue, which added such a cheery pop to the day. Aymee is also a photographer and we LOVED how important pictures were to her and and Michael, giving us tons of time in their timeline for portraits. We got to explore some of our favorite Cross Creek spots and finally shoot in a couple that we’ve been dying to (thank you Aymee for being up for some extreme off-roading! ; ) We were just obsessed with all the greenery we were able to include in their portraits (which you know is always our FAVE) and from the first look to the sparkler exit the entire day couldn’t have been more fun!

Aymee and Michael, thank you so much for inviting us to spend your best day ever by your side’s, we loved every minute!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
