Our day started out with tornado warnings. If you know me, you know tornados are my biggest fear in the whole world. I’m terrified of them. We were on the 5th floor of the Hilton Garden Inn, and I was trying to figure out if Arika would think I was crazy if I dove into the bathtub. 😂

I didn’t get in the bathtub. Lol! It did pour for the first few hours, and we even had some hail, but it eventually stopped, and we had clear skies the rest of the day. I can’t even get over how beautiful of a day it turned out to be. 

Arika and John are one of the most photogenic couples. Ever since their engagement session, I have been looking forward to their wedding. They are sweet, genuine, and affectionate toward each other. Arika could be a model. She was stunning!

I loved working with Laura with Lydia Noble Events again. She does a great job of keeping everything running smoothly. It’s always nice having a wedding planner. With all of the rain, it would have been really difficult to enable our rain plan had we not had a wedding planner. Thank you Laura for all of your hard work. You made the day run seamlessly. 

Arika and John, thank you from the bottom of my heart for asking me to be your photographer. It was an honor! I absolutely loved working with the both of you! Let’s do it all over again!
