Happy Fri-YAY, y’all!! And what better way to celebrate the almost weekend than by checking out an awesome Tower Room Wedding!

Meet Hannah and Andrew! Oh, these cuties!

You might remember them from their engagement session earlier this year. Aaaaaaand, you might remember Hannah’s sister Emily’s wedding in May! Needless to say, I’ve spent some quality time with their family, and I’m sad they don’t have any more weddings coming up. 🙁

But enough of the sad face. Because now it’s time for the wedding awesomeness! So, y’all know the drill. I want to make a few notes about their day because who doesn’t want a photographer’s opinion?? Right?!  *Crickets*

Uh…anyways!

Hannah and Andrew decided to do a first look at the Botanic Gardens! I love first looks. Not only because they give you the flexibility of going to a completely separate location to get photos, but it also allows so much more time to do things beforehand. Then, if you are running late, you still have time after the ceremony! It’s like a win-win-win! 😀 So I posted quite a few pics of their first look session at the Botanic. The Iris Garden was in FULL bloom this weekend, and I was lovin’ every second of it! We also did their wedding party shots there, which made for a really nice background.

Secondly, these two decided on a bubble exit! I love bubble exits from the church. Here’s why. It’s during the day, so you can see the bubbles. Sometimes you get some really great colorful bokeh from the light AND it’s a great option for a leave that’s not at the very end of the reception. Soooo, if you want to cut down on some of the photography hours, a bubble exit or some sort of leave from the church is a great option because then I can leave halfway through the reception instead of staying until the end.

And I think that’s it for now in terms of bridal notes! So, now for the pics! 😀

This is such a cute shot! I do want to give a *high five* though to “Mama Craft” who made the most adorable bow for Hannah’s dress!
