Courtney and Billy just so happened to have the most perfect wedding ever at Clark’s Landing, Point Pleasant this past October – and I was there to photograph it all.
To say I loved Courtney from the second that I met her would be an understatement. She is funny, genuine, and just as gorgeous on the outside as she is on the inside! We had a FaceTime over Playa Bowls to chat about her wedding, and we had the same favorite bowl. It was obviously meant to be. I’m not going to lie to you guys, before this wedding I got a quick breakfast at Kali-O’s Juicebox (which is a mere stone’s throw away from the house that Courtney got ready in and Clark’s Landing) because the smoothie bowls there are my most favorite anywhere. It just felt appropriate.
Courtney wore a killer pair of Louboutins with her stunner of a Celestia gown, and I just about had a heart attack because she looked so perfect! Also – her flowerpug Rielly was the perfect touch. Courtney loves her pupper like I love mine, so I totally understood the joy of being able to have her throughout portraits, and even walk down the aisle. It was very special. It took a whole lot of carrots, but it was well worth it.
Courtney and Billy’s friends really made this day with their awesome personalities, and being down for anything. Portraits went incredibly smoothly, and it was seriously because of all of them being so willing despite a chilly October day on the water. I had already gotten some amazing portraits before the ceremony of these two, but when I saw an insane sunset happening later in the day I knew we had to sneak away just one more time. It ended up being so. worth. it. Billy is such a patient groom and his love for Courtney is written all over his face and the way that he looks at her. These two are truly such a perfect match!
After cocktail hour, this wedding erupted into an epic party. It was such a fun one to shoot, and I hope you guys enjoy these photos!
