I've had Cody & Emma's wedding day on my calendar for almost 2 years! Emma contacted me in late 2016, already super excited about marrying her best friend. I was so thrilled when she asked me to be a part of this journey with them. So, needless to say I'd been anxiously awaiting this day (as were they!) and it did NOT disappoint.
Right away the day was off to a great start. When I walked into the Patterson's bridal suite, Emma and all her girls greeted me the biggest smiles and hugs. And the second I heard their country radio station switch to Cardi B (my girl), I knew this day was going to be a blast :-)
Emma & Cody are what I'd call a "dream couple." They're kind-hearted, they have fantastic style and easy-going, but they also love to party! Besides being super in love and having a tangible friendship that is just adorable to watch. They continually thanked me throughout the day (which is so encouraging). And BOTH sides of their family were warm, sweet, and also liked to party :-) #Score. As I was saying my goodbyes for the night, Emma's mom told me (in a sing-songy voice) "I just love you!" and hands me a huge slice of cake to take home haha! So on a personal and professional level, those facts alone made their wedding day special to me.
On another note, Emma's wedding dress will definitely go down as one of my favorites from 2018. It was the perfect fusion of classic and modern. Her simple and flowy skirt paired with the lace appliques on top? OHMYGAH. She looked like a movie star! Cody also looked sharp in his navy blue and patriotic socks!
Thank you Mr & Mrs Ebert for being such a joy to work with! Couples like you guys makes my job worth it. I pray that all the smiles you two put into the world will be returned back to you in the biggest way. Ya'll deserve every ounce of happiness life has to offer.
