There are SO many things I love about this wedding. For starters, there is the couple - Camellia is just about the sweetest person ever and was a bride so genuinely excited about her wedding day it was hard not to catch her enthusiasm. She described this day as the best day of her life. Then you have Will - calm, collected and ready to marry the girl of his dreams. Their families and bridal party were wonderful too, supportive and fun - what more do you need :)
Secondly, they brought their dog to the wedding to get a few photos done with them. Even though it was just for a few minutes, I know that the photo below that includes Dixie is one of the couples favorites - definitely a great idea and something I'd encourage all my couples with pups to do!
Of course there is all the gorgeousness of our bride, the dress, the shoes, the flowers, the cake - everything was just lovely.
Let's get to the reception/dance party. Everyone at this reception had fun. And I mean everyone, myself included. It was impossible not to get caught up in the lighthearted, celebratory vibe that the entire reception had. It began with a traditional Persian marriage ceremony that Camellia's mother put together that ending in dancing, and the dancing continued throughout the night. They also got serenaded by one of the groomsmen, which was pretty great, and I can't leave out Camellia's dad dancing!
To top it off there were Will & Camellia campaign buttons, I'd vote for them.
Thank you Will & Camellia for including me in this wonderful day! Mandy
