My first fall 2020 wedding starting off with a BANG! April and James' had the most perfect fall weather for their big day at Valley Road, and everything about this day was absolutely beautiful. And while the decor, florals, and bride were all stunning, the best part of the day was the complete and utter JOY that surrounded these two. James was one of the giddiest grooms I've ever worked with, and April's bridesmaids were a HOOT! Keep scrolling to see a special surprise they had at the reception...

April's bridesmaids were SO MUCH FUN! And I loved these sweet moments with her momma...

The details and decor by Premier Events were just lovely. They are a full-service event company that does coordination AND décor!

Patty's florals quite literally made my jaw drop.

This was one of the best groom's reactions I've ever seen for a first look - can you tell how excited he is?

Then, friends and family arrived for the ceremony! I still can't get over this backdrop.

After the ceremony, April, James , and I a gator ride up into the vineyard for some sunset photos. This was such a nice breath of fresh air for the couple (and for me!).

Finally, party time...with a t-rex! I told you these gals were fun.

Congratulations, april and james!
