Cake – Sugar Bee Sweets Assistant Photographer- Ariana Miller
Kody and Cayla held their reception at the Empire Room in Dallas. I love shooting at this venue, it is great for wedding photography. With a warehouse feel to it but still has a cozy atmosphere. The tables were decorated with earthy center pieces and candles were light on every table. The had a bible for the guest book and requested everyone to highlight their favorite verse so that they could go back and reflect with those words of wisdom.
The amazing cake was sitting front and center and it was GLORIOUS!!! Beautifully and artfully done but Sugar bee Sweets, it looked tasty too! 🙂 The Grooms cake was equally as beautiful and I had hearts in my eyes at all of the Reese’s piled on it! 🙂
After the guests finished eating The newlyweds went straight in to their first dance. I loved how Cayla really took the time to enjoy this moment with her new husband. Even on a busy busy day you should just take the time to soak it all in and have a second with your spouse.
After cake we had the toasts. I always really love hearing the toasts people give. It gives me an inside look to each couple, how they were before they met and then how they changed as a couple. I laugh and some times I might have a tear or two but Cayla’s sister gave one of the best toasts I have ever heard hands down. There was not a dry eye in the house whens he finished with her heartfelt words towards the couple. It was amazing!
So one thing I haven’t mentioned is that Kody is in a mixed singing group with his Siblings – The Erwins. I think he thought he was going to get away with not having to sing but they were convinced and sang two songs for us.
The couple then left to sparklers and lived happily ever after 🙂
Thank you SO much for allowing me to be on this journey with you and capturing your wedding photography! It was a great day full of love and I wish you both the best as you enjoy your new path together.
