The room was empty, but the lights still sparkled above them. The remnants of the energy from the party that had just ended lingered in the room, but now it was just the two of them. And the official last dance of the night. They held each other close. Smiling big and singing loudly, and feeling every bit of joy that had filled the day. And as he twirled her one last time, they both laughed at how perfectly her dress spun around her. Like it was something from a storybook. It was a moment so very fitting, because every minute of they day they had just lived was nothing short of a fairytale. . . . . .

Haley and Jimmy tied the knot! And before we even start to recount the magic that was their Cross Creek Ranch wedding, can we just say how much this day filled our hearts? From the genuine way these two love each other, to the way they adore their pups, to the overwhelming sweetness of everyone who surrounded them on their big day – we just couldn’t have felt luckier to be a part of it.
Haley wore a stunning off-the-shoulder gown that was legitimately fit for a princess. And after a laughter filled first look with Jimmy the two of them had a second first look (or should we say FURst look ; ) with their dogs Hamilton and Sophie! And these two were also decked out in their wedding day best. We had so much fun including them in Haley + Jimmy’s portraits. And then, as a warm breeze drifted through the open air chapel, the vows were spoken and the newlyweds were announced!
The reception was nothing short of an epic party! It had a packed dance floor from start to finish and SO much amazing energy. The toasts were both funny and heartfelt, and one even included a reference to Angelica’s speech from Hamilton (which totally made both of us tear up – #theaternerds). At the end of the night, after guests had gone to line up for the sparkler exit, the new Mr. & Mrs. shared a final last dance in their empty reception space. It was basically straight out of a movie and couldn’t have been any more perfect!
Haley and Jimmy, we just adore you two and were so honored to be the ones to document this honest-to-goodness PERFECT day.
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
