Now before we can talk about how adorable this couple, Candice and Brad, are….lemme just tell you about Bill and Marie!
Candice’s parents are adorable. I mean the kindest, sweetest people ever. Bill and Marie came into the studio back in October with their daughter, Candice, because they LOVE HER BIG. By the end of that meeting I *low key* wanted them to adopt me
During the meeting, I asked about Candice’s dress and all 3 of them burst into laughter. Months earlier, Candice and her Mom had been on a beach trip in Myrtle Beach, SC and casually stopped into a bridal shop to look at gowns. Then they set up an appointment in October to buy *the dress* and it was the weekend of a hurricane. For real. The National Weather Service was telling people to avoid the roads in SC at all costs….but….her amazing parents offered to drive with her through the crazy wind and rain to get that amazing dress she had her heart set on. How precious is that?
But, seriously, Bill and Marie even came to the engagement shoot to help wrangle the pups for us too. These are my people, y’all! When brides have been loved so well throughout their childhoods (and into adulthood too), they seek out partners who are spectacular matches for them.
Candice and Brad have that spark. Their first date was at Maggiano’s and they wanted to be sure to weave that part of their story into their engagement session. So, we hit the park for pics with their fur babies, Keeper and Henry, then popped over to South Park for more fun. The Christmas decor was such a bonus and their playful, childlike nature totally took over (the pic of her flying in his arms wearing the red coat is my personal fave)
