#RealWeddingWednesday - Kayla & Corey

Hey friends! This blog post is full of beautiful autumnal color and a bride and groom that were so excited to get married! That's always a perfect combination for a beautiful wedding day :)

Kayla and Corey's autumn wedding at Happily Ever After at the Barn was tons of fun with some tear-jerker moments and a very dapper father of the bride to boot! We had a great day, the weather was absolute perfection, and the bridal party was so fun and excited to be together to celebrate.

We had a very special Best Little Man in Parker, who was so sweet in his little suit.

Kayla and Corey chose a palette of burgundy and blush for the ladies and navy blue for the fellas. This palette has been popular for the last couple of years - and for good reason! It's a beautiful combination that compliments nearly everyone's skin tone and fits beautifully into a ton of different settings. I loved Christy of Happily Ever After at the Barn's floral. They were lovely perfectly complimented our ladies and gents.

Next I have to feature Kayla's adorable first look with her Daddy. Is he not the most dapper gentlemen? I was completely sold when he arrived with a cane.

Kayla and Corey's ceremony featured the most precious moment between Kayla and Parker, as she read her vows to him, her step-son. I know I shed a few tears as she expressed her love for Parker and they exchanged bracelets to symbolize their family puzzle being completed. It was so sweet and I'm pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye!

Once the ceremony ended, Sydney Morris Photography finished up photos of the bridal party and sent them in to party! She was able to capture truly lovely portraits of Kayla and Corey, including their first dance, always one of my favorite moments!

Kayla and Corey's wedding day ended just as beautifully as it began with a sparkler send off and photos I cannot get enough of! This is one of my favorite sparkler shots ever!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Tate! This wedding day was beautiful and I'm thankful that I got to share in the joy.

Happy planning,
