They stood back to back, fingers interlaced, excited for the moment that was to come within the next hour. This quiet moment before the one when would finally be married. And as they both stared straight, so as not to get a glimpse of the other, they each smiled a smile so big the other could feel it’s warmth . . . . . . .

Mandi and Tom tied the knot! The two of them said their I-do’s in an outdoor ceremony decorated with florals and white lanterns before their family and friends. After their first kiss, the newlyweds spent some time exploring the grounds of Cross Creek Ranch (where we absolutely NEVER tire of shooting!) before an awesome party of a reception in the barn. Guests had fun with activities like s’more making and horseshoes after dancing, and at the end of the night had fun sending the couple off with a picture perfect sparkler exit! It’s always our favorite way to end a Cross Creek wedding day after the last dance.
We absolutely adore Mandi and Tom and their easy going personalities, and ever since their engagement session have been so stoked for their big day to get here! Well let us just say, nothing about this day disappointed! Firstly, the bridesmaids wore blush dresses with a sparkly overlay which flowed perfectly with all the soft greens of the venue. And Mandi looked so incredibly stunning in a fitted dress with loose sleeves. Her entire look (including the most Disney princess-esque hair EVER) was so stunning and perfectly “her” including the customized Chucks she surprised Tom with.
Mandi + Tom, thank you SO much for such a fun day! We have loved every bit of time we’ve gotten to spend with you guys throughout the wedding process, and couldn’t love your Cross Creek wedding day any more!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
