Earlier in the day...

Tim and Whitney are the kind of people who make you feel at ease immediately. They are so welcoming, kind, and gracious that it makes everyone around them comfortable. On their wedding day, this graciousness was on full display, as they personally thanked each guest for coming and created an atmosphere of welcome and charm at their Twin Hills Country Club wedding. 

Their wedding day could not have been more picture-perfect - from their getting-ready moments to the exchanging of gifts which I documented, the day was filled with loving and thoughtful moments. Tim is a huge Cowboys fan, and the cufflinks and groom's cake that Whitney surprised him with made his eyes light up. As for Whitney, seeing her tears as she opened the Bible Tim gifted her with was a testimony to how important their faith and marriage vows mean to them. 

Tim's daughter Josie was an integral part of the wedding day, and you can see how close she is to Whitney and her daddy. They even included her in their first dance! Whitney is an awesome bonus mom, and Josie is a very blessed little girl to have such a naturally loving and kind person like Whitney Ann in her life. They don't make people much sweeter - a quality I really came to cherish during the entire planning process. I love all my brides, but some leave an especially wonderful mark on your heart.

From their ceremony filled with laughter and emotion, to dancing the night away with friends and family, Whitney and Tim's wedding day summed up their personality as a couple perfectly - fun, loving, family-centered, and considerate. I wish them every happiness for always!
