Some things I will always love about weddings, as featured in Hannah & Shane's truly incredible wedding day:

- Good wedding party vibes. These guys came to party, support their favorite couple, dance, and generally just elevate the experience of everyone they encountered.
- Color, color everywhere. Bold fall florals, teal table linens, venue uplighting...I'll take it all, please!
- Excellent groom style. Shane's custom suit, floral tie and pocket square, and rick-rack chevron socks were such a MOOD.
- Personal ceremonies. Hannah's cousin officiated, Hannah & Shane exchanged delightful personal vows; Shane's look of delight as they're pronounced married is just the best.
- High fives at the end of the aisle!
- All-in mothers-of-the-bride. From Hannah's mom saying, "I am killing it," the entire time she was buttoning Hannah's dress, to her willingness to leave it all on the dance floor, to the absolutely perfect surprise she planned in hiring a live wedding painter, she made sure to make the day as amazing as she could for her daughter and new son-in-law.
- Rocky Top's Chocolate Sin Cake Pops. Every. Time.
- Rolling with the punches. When some of the band's sound equipment malfunctioned  towards the end of Hannah & Shane's first dance song (taking some of the lights in the installation with it, oops), the alto sax player started jamming while others were troubleshooting, and Hannah and her dad boogied their way through to their official father-daughter dance song a few minutes later. It was a delightful and endearing way to work through an obstacle.
- Endless enthusiasm and love. Hannah and Shane have multi-national families, with folks traveling in from Ireland and France as well as nationwide across the US. Everyone present came intent on celebrating Hannah & Shane's union as thoroughly as they could, surrounding this amazing couple and their families with the deepest joy they could muster.

This was one for the books for us, y'all, and we are so thrilled to have been able to participate in it. Hannah and Shane are delightful, loveable, and well loved—thanks for inviting us into the magic and trusting us to capture this fantastic day for you! Enjoy a selection of our favorites from this celebration below!
