There is so much to say about Makayla and Cole. They are outgoing and fun and completely laid back. They are wonderful to be around and the moment Makayla inquired with me, I was so thrilled to have her as an EHP Bride! She cared about the details, the special touches of her wedding and I loved getting to be part of that!
She even shared with me how her and Cole met. I’m going to let her share some of that story with you here:
“Cole and I met at Riverfront in Chilhowie and worked together for 4 years before we started dating! We happened to be scheduled on a few catering events together and it seemed like one day it just clicked for both of us. We have been inseparable since! He makes me laugh and shows me how much he loves me every single day and I cant wait to be his wife!”
This was so evident on their wedding day. They both were anxiously just waiting for 4PM to roll around so they could make things official 🙂 Both of their families were an absolute dream too and I had so much fun capturing them as they watched their babies get married!
Also – I got to have Scott shoot with me for this wedding which was so special because we were celebrating 4 years ago (to the day!) that he asked me to marry him at Virginia Tech and I couldn’t have thought of a better way to spend the day – watching someone else’s love story just beginning! He got some amazing shots too!
Guys – I’ve already said it, but I’m saying it again, Cole’s reaction to seeing Makayla for the first time brought tears to my eyes. Their love is deep and it is so wonderful and I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their special day!
Her dress was breathtaking!!
Christy was my cheerleading coach in school and I cheered with Cole’s sister Courtney.
Crazy to see us all grown up and Cole getting married!
Can we all agree Lucy is the cutest?! And look at how she looks at Uncle Cole!
Nothing like having all you best friends with you on your wedding day!
I love when my brides want to do a first look with their dad!! One of my favorites!!
This was such a sweet moment!!
Ya’ll all the tears flowing!
I love this photo of Makayla too. She looked at me just before she reached the alter and you can see the tears in her eyes too.
THEY ARE MARRIED!!!
Lucy loves her new Aunt Makayla too! All these sweet girls were PRECIOUS!
Sharing their first dance as Mr. & Mrs. McAllister
