{Haley & Mitchell @ Fancy Free Nursery}

You might recognize the bride in this one, Haley has been one of our own team members for 6 years now and I can't even describe how happy I am to see her this happy!  She and Mitchell have definitely found their person.  They wanted an intimate but beautiful location and Haley told me when she walked into Fancy Free she knew it was perfect. It is such a cool spot and the best part is since it's a plant nursery by day it's covered in greenery and so pretty!  Haley got ready in a the little room that is actually the front of where the ceremony was. It was draped in greenery and had the perfect window light.  Her best friend Ginger was by her side to make sure everything was perfect.  While she was getting ready we were talking about wedding #s and Haley said they didn't have one so #gettinmitched popped into my head and then one of her friends added 224 so it was #gettinmitched224 for the perfect hashtag!  Haley is an amazing mom to her two boys, Kyson and Taylor and they were so excited to see her in that gown.  I made them wait until she was totally ready so they could do a little first look:-)  Kyson happened to find the boxes of Mini Doughnuts and snuck a little peek! When Mitchell arrived, his brother Ben, and Kyson helped him finish getting ready.  He looked so handsome in that navy suit and burgundy tie.  The ceremony was set in the foyer with white garden chairs.  Haley entered towards the front and met Kyson and Taylor to hand her off to Mitchell.  The shared their own vows with each other and my favorite moment was when Mitchell promised to love the boys as his own and that they were now officially a family!  There's SO many amazing spots for photos at Fancy Free and just around the corner with the brick buildings and rows of street lights.  On the wall of the Rialto there are different things written on the bricks and one of them said "I don't believe in Magic" and under it said "You will when you see her".  They had a low key reception with amazing food from their favorite local spots under the lights on the out door patio.  They had a little surprise for everyone that I was super excited about!  Haley has a little baby bump and is due in July.  They had told everyone that they weren't going to find out the gender, but decided to turn their cake cutting into a gender reveal!  Only me and one other person knew that so I had Kandice use my phone to video it and I posted that at the very bottom so you can watch too! Their mom's reactions were the absolute best.  I thought it was a girl, Haley has said the entire time it is a boy and she was right!! When they cut into the cake the frosting was blue. Best surprise ever!!!!  There's a little spot I had been dying to shoot at about a block away.  It's a lighted art piece on top of a building that says "Can you stand perfectly still and hold this moment open?" The perfect ending to the evening!  Congrats Haley & Mitchell it was amazing.  So excited for your sweet family and Colton Grady on the way! xoxoxo
